Paralegal who means more than just legal

Joanna Allen


Joanna goes above and beyond to help each client understand the legal jargon that can often be so confusing.  Her calming and reassuring approach ensures she has excellent relationships with her clients, who often comment on how pleasant she has made the matter for them.  Before joining the legal world, Joanna personally experienced the complexities of dealing with a deceased estate, whilst also dealing with grief, and uses her experience and compassion to ease her clients through the journey.  Joanna thrives on helping other people get their affairs in order, especially their Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney.
