Westchester County family lawyer Joan Iacono has always been a hands-on kind of person. She finds a way to accomplish what she needs to accomplish, whether in a court of law or in her private life.

Joan Iacono was born and raised in Westchester County, where she has been a lawyer for 21 years. But, the majority of her experience is in private practice in New York City and Bronx County. From 1988 to 1992 she served as Principal Court Attorney to the Chief Judge of the Bronx Family Court. There she helped draft court opinions, assisted in trial management and courthouse management, and conferenced cases with litigants and lawyers to effect settlement. The experience was valuable for Iacono's private practice, as it gave her a substantial insight into the judicial side of family law and the decision-making process in New York Family Court. As a result, she is better able to advise her clients and develop successful strategies. She complements her staffing with paralegals, forensic experts, and per diem attorneys as needed.

Joan Iacono's practice is almost evenly divided between real estate and family law. An accomplished and aggressive litigator, she is known as a "barracuda with a heart."

"First, I'll try to negotiate a quick and fair settlement for my clients," said Joan Iacono. "Then we'll litigate if we have to."

Joan Iacono - The best of the best
I started working with Ms Iacono in 2002 to assist me with my divorce and other matters. Not only was/is she efficient, straight forward and a no “bullshit” twist of “pit bull,” she brings a level of common sense and rationale which are usually in short supply during one’s divorce or other family matters. Most importantly, she knows the law. She is aggressive, creative and will do what it takes. Not unlike most divorces I imagine, it is the gift that keeps on giving. Throughout the decade plus I have consulted with Ms Iacono and she has always been available and very responsive. If I could give her six stars, I would. I highly recommend picking up the phone and giving her a call. That part is free and worth every future penny spent. Thank you Joan Iacono. Colin Walsh
