Joanna has a Master of Laws degree and she is educated as a multilingual projects professional with extensive experience in providing a valuable support service at senior level and team support levels. Before joining Oracle Solicitors she worked as a Litigation Executive for Legal 500 Industrial Disease and Personal Injury Department at Seth Lovis and Co Solicitors. She runs her own case-load and worked on high-value Personal Injury, Industrial Disease and Military claims.
Before moving to the UK, Joanna worked in a corporate environment as a Project Manager for a Japanese trading company as a key appointed liaison contact between departments and operating units. She managed contracts supplying and producing electronic parts to clients across worldwide locations and coordinated the wider teams of staff to increase operational effectiveness.
Joanna spent one year in the USA studying the History of the Western World and completed three years of Archaeology and two years of History at the University of Nicolaus Copernicus in Torun, Poland. Throughout this time she participated in excavations, learnt languages, organized exhibitions and took part in auctions of artwork for charity. She also participated in organising an art exhibition and auction of paintings of British celebrity artist Lanre Olangoke’s art students and had some of her artwork included in a PhD proposal.
Joanna deeply cares about human rights, so she works Pro Bono and she is a member and supporter of charitable organisations such as Amicus- a legal non-profit organisation based in the United Kingdom which helps provide representation for those facing the death penalty in the USA and the Access to Justice Foundation in the UK, which aims to improve access to justice for the most vulnerable in society.
