about JoanneX+X+

Joanne Beasy is nothing short of a detail ninja, a trait that makes her fearless in the courtroom and always ready to deliver thoughtful solutions.

She’s provided decades of thorough representation in the fields of family law, business, employment and probate/estate litigation. In family law, Joanne’s experience includes representing clients in dissolution, divorce, custody and like proceedings. Highlights of her probate/estate litigation background are handling estate and trust administration disputes involving fiduciaries and/or beneficiaries, will contests and guardianships. She also has an extensive background in business and employment litigation.

Her relentless preparation gives her complete command of the facts of a case–all while maintaining a big picture perspective on the surrounding circumstances. She knows her way around IT, has a flair for numbers, and is in her element in any courtroom.

Joanne is a member of the Isaac Wiles Management Committee, Chair of the Family Law practice group, and is the firm’s Ethics Counsel.
