Joanne is fearless, honest and assertive while remaining a first rate professional. She is a fierce advocate for her clients yet does not fuel wasteful conflict but goes right to confronting what needs to be done to get things over with as quickly as possible and help you move on. Her negotiation skills and legal knowledge inspire respect in her community, which also helps speed the resolution process. She does not mess around.

Joanne has an excellent grasp of Family Law legal issues. She is thoughtful, considerate and direct. My experience with Joanne was that she considered the case holistically, looked at the challenges and opportunities as a sphere and helped chart an effective course using legal knowledge, experience and common sense.
Joanne helped me with child support modification and related issues. Though the case should have been straightforward, the opposing side made things very difficult. Joanne helped me stay focused and unexcited. She has a steady hand on the tiller...
I would recommend Joanne highly and if required to do so again, would engage her without hesitation.
