Joanne Yi is a skilled bankruptcy attorney with 16 years of experience.  Joanne was born in South Korea and came to the Unites States when she was a freshman in high school.  Joanne received her bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the College of William and Mary. She then went on to receive her master’s degree in sociology from the Virginia Commonwealth University, and her graduate certificate in aging studies from the Medical College of Virginia.  Joanne worked in the private corporate world  before  attending the Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan. Upon earning her Juris Doctor, Joanne relocated to Chicago, where she practiced bankruptcy law at the largest consumer bankruptcy law firm in the Midwest for 7 years.  Joanne went on to join a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Trustee’s office as the associate attorney to the Trustee for a couple of years. Here, she gained the knowledge and experience from the other sides of the bankruptcy table   In 2012, before relocating with her family back to Virginia, Joanne joined a Korean American Law Firm to help set up the bankruptcy practice.    

Back in Virginia, Joanne worked as a Bankruptcy attorney in the Eastern District. Joanne expanded her practice to include traffic and criminal matters in the Northern Virginia area.

In 2014, Joanne and her law partner opened their own firm, Bristle & Yi Law, PLLC in Manassas VA. With the goal in mind of taking a very direct, no nonsense appraoch to law, Joanne is an attorney who makes sure her clients’ needs and goals are met with the best outcome possible.  Joanne has assisted many clients who filed bankruptcy (Chapter 7 or Chapter 13) to seek relief from financial hardship and burden to achieve the relief they so desperatley needed.  It is Joannes philosophy that the best working relationship between attorney and client is formed in honest and forthright disclosure. 

Joanne's practice is still going strong as she represents clients in the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division, Bankruptcy Court, which encompasses, Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, Fauquier, Prince William, and Stafford Counties, as well as any other city or twon within the geographical boundaries of those counties.

Great Service With Attention To Detail
Ms. Yi follows up on a case that we believed the courts had closed. Come to find out, the case was still open. She took time out her day to go to the clerk’s office and confirm the case should have been closed. Without her following up on this, there could have been a warrant issued. She keeps the lines of communication open. I highly recommend her services!

Smooth Process
My husband and I got into some financial set backs and made the decision to file for bankruptcy. We searched for lawyers in or area and made some calls. We felt overwhelmed and had many many questions as this was our first time filing. When I called the office of Bristle & Yi I immediately liked that Mrs. Yi was the one to answer my call and set up a time to meet with her. During our first appointment/consultation we discussed our issues and got feedback from Mrs. Yi as she took very detailed notes. She made us feel as though our situation was not hopeless and extremely overwhelming which is exactly what we needed to hear. I had great faith that this process would be smooth and we could trust her. It turned out to be just that. She answered every single question we had, responded to emails quickly, and took the liberty to do what is best for our family. Each meeting after was very informative and assuring. She even had toys for our son to play with in her office. We can't say enough how much we appreciated having Mrs. Yi as our attorney and I would recommend anyone having financial or traffic issues to give her a call.
