Joana Santos

Trainee Solicitor

Joana finished her degree in Law with Criminology going on to complete her Legal Practice (Solicitors) Master’s degree. Joana has also recently successfully completed her Legal Practice Course and intends to go on and qualify as a Solicitor.

Prior to joining the firm, Joana sought experience within the Criminal sector, where she gained a good knowledge of day-to-day criminal proceedings. Joana enjoys helping those in difficult situations. Joana speaks fluent Portuguese and can also represent people at the police station if required to and has gained a fantastic reputation with clients, who appreciate her dedicated and diligent approach.

Joana Santos was extremely easy to correspond with, and despite the distressing situation, her calmness and measured approach to handling each aspect of the trial from preparation to evidence gathering was reassuring, high level and key to assisting Ross in representing me. [...] I believe Ross & Joana's involvement with my case was key to me winning. I wholly recommend this firm.

Just like to say a big thank you to you all. Great result. But more than that how you all made me feel.

Will definitely be recommending you should anyone need you
