Hiring Joanne was the best decision I have ever made as it resulted in my ability to maintain a day to day relationship with my children. She successfully filed to dismiss an Ohio divorce case and ex-parte order that gave my soon to be ex-wife primary custody of our children and sought to keep them in Ohio. She knew the law (Ohio's UCCJEA and local procedural laws) backwards and forwards and worked with me patiently to achieve desired outcome. She was always accessible and willing to answer any and all questions I had. An very detailed oriented advocate, her motion was extremely well written and thoroughly researched, and compelling. End result was reestablishment of home-state jurisdiction and order from home-state judge to return children within week. Joanne was extremely fair - all client charges well documented and justified. Her assistant Kelly was also very responsive and helpful. I strongly recommend Joanne without hesitation to anyone in need of legal services commensurate with her areas of expertise and skillsets.

This was a difficult divorce and I went into it with illusions that being honest and doing the right thing is the way to go. Joanne encouraged me to stay on this path however, the other party was not so honest and trustworthy - nor was his attorney. In the end I got exactly what I asked for when I went in to Joanne - for my daughter to stop crying when she went to daddys, for him to be a better daddy and for me to get residential school parent.
Joanne dealt with my faltering self confidence and kept me focused on what was REALLY important and that was my daughter. No matter what obstacles the other attorney and my ex would through into the mix - Joanne kept me calm.
However, the depositions happened to be the spot that I was in awe of her. She kept on task and asked the questions and without ever raising her voice or changing her tone she was able to get him to be completely flustered. He answered questions and it was a true test of who he really is. His attorney was laughing and making jokes and relaxed and in my opinion very unprofessional - however, Joanne was the perfect professional attorney being cordial but vicious all while smiling.
I am sure that many attorneys could have done what Joanne did for me - but the fact that she truly cared about what happened made the experience a tolerable one.
I highly recommend her for any court hearing that you may need to attend. Wait til she get's to cross examine the other party - that is when her true colors shine!

Last year I made one of the biggest decisions of my life, to divorce my husband. I have never required the services of a lawyer or legal representation, but Joanne proved to be indispensable during my case. My divorce was unique and complicated; my husband lived on the other side of the country and we share a son who is autistic and a toddler. I was unsure of my rights and what course was in the best interest of myself and my young son. Joanne clarified everything; she was honest and straightforward, and gave me confidence in the strength of my case. She never pressured me, but was clearly on my side and open to my ideas and opinions. Joanne never took any legal action without running it by me for approval, and I was always promptly notified and given documentation via emails. If I ever had a question or concern, I could always email Joanne and her secretary and both would promptly answer my question...they are an amazing team. In addition, Joanne possesses an exceptionally empathetic and understanding personality, which made this overwhelming time in my life much easier to navigate. Joanne represented me as if she were representing herself or a loved one; she made my interests and that of my son her own and she worked relentlessly for us. Due to Joanne's efforts and hard work, I now have custody of my son and peace of mind.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Joanne has been my mentor since I began my legal career in 2015. She is well-respected in the legal community and advocates fiercely for her clients. We have worked on many cases together and she is meticulous. She is as honest as the day is long and is a true professional. I strongly recommend Joanne.
