As recently awarded by the Orlando Family Magazine (from where she recently relocated), she is an AWESOME ATTORNEY in the family law category.

Just a few quotes provide: “She fought for me and was very responsive.” “Joanna was superb.” “Joanna Foard has been my family law attorney for the past several months, and I have felt so supported and attended to.” “Best lawyer ever!” If you want to read more, I highly recommend that you visit AVVO.

“We are excited for Joanna to join General Counsel, P.C.,” said Merritt Green, the firm’s Founder and Managing Partner. “Joanna is not only a tremendous family law attorney, but she is great person and community leader.” “We have looked to add a family law practice to the firm for a few years but could not find the right person. We feel fortunate to have Joanna joining General Counsel, P.C.”

“With family here in the DC Metro area, and having attended college at Catholic University, I’m happy to have relocated to the DC area and finding General Counsel, P.C. was a perfect fit,” said Joanna. “General Counsel, P.C. is a great firm with a sixteen year history of serving clients in the DC Metro area. They work as a team and I have been welcomed as family. I am excited to start serving clients and to build General Counsel, P.C.’s family law practice.”

Joanna provides full service family law representation, including Divorce, Equitable Distribution of Property Agreements, Child Support, Alimony, Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements, Custody, Parenting Plans/Timesharing Schedules, Modification of child support orders and/or alimony, Enforcement actions, Relocation actions, and Paternity actions.
