Joanne has been qualified as a solicitor for over 21 years and has always specialised in personal injury law.

Joanne works on high-value and complex accident claims arising from both workplace and road traffic accidents, as well as assaults at work. Typically, her clients have suffered orthopaedic and/or psychiatric injuries.

Joanne has achieved great results for hundreds of clients, including settlements approaching seven figures.

Joanne enjoys working at Thompsons as she knows that she is always working for those who have been injured through no fault of their own, and not for employers who cause injury or their insurers.

Outside the office, Joanne is an assistant cub scout leader and enjoys reading, travelling, and socialising with friends.
