Welcome To The Team, Jo


Joanna joins the team as head of our Private Client department. She specialises in supporting and making a difference to older and vulnerable people and is a fully accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly.


Joanna’s expertise lies with advising clients on their Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Trusts, Court of Protection, Probate applications and Administration of Estates, Later Life Planning, and Inheritance Tax. She was also shortlisted in the Private Client section of the Yorkshire Legal Awards 2019.


She has a great deal of experience in this arena, and with her addition to the team, our Private Client department is now stronger than it’s ever been.  As the pandemic has forced many to consider what measures they have in place for the future, topics like Wills, Powers of Attorney and Trusts are at the top of people's minds, so Joanna is joining at the perfect time.
