Joanne McNamara

Associate Solicitor

Services: Family Law

Joanne has been a specialist in family law over 20 years and is a committed member of our family team focusing during the last 9 years in child care law and arrangements for children.  This is a complex area of law that requires not only Joanne’s knowledge and competence in a fast-changing legal environment but also her sensitive handling of clients in order to navigate them to obtaining successful outcomes in emotionally charged situations.  Joanne finds this area of law rewarding when clients are helped to make significantly positive changes to their lives.

In recognition of her experience, Joanne is a member of the Law Society’s Children Panel and can represent children by their court appointed Guardian as well as representing parents and wider family members.  She is also an advanced member of the Law Society’s Family Law Panel specialising in the areas of domestic violence and in arrangements for children in disputes between parents and wider family members.

Joanne has recently been promoted to an Associate and will continue to work hard to help Clarkes sustain its growth and success for the future.
