Joanne Harriman


I qualified as a solicitor in January 2005 and joined Symes Bains Broomer in 2014, I have over 18 years’ experience exclusively specialising in family law with extensive expertise dealing with divorce and financial matters, including complex asset and agricultural cases, children issues, domestic abuse and co-habitation disputes. I am also experienced in preparing co-habitation agreements, pre-marital agreements, separation agreements and consent orders.

I understand how difficult and emotionally challenging relationship breakdowns can be, I take a straightforward and professional approach to helping my clients through the legal process. I always strive to provide excellent client care, delivering quick, no-nonsense replies to client queries, my approach has assisted me to build a loyal following of clients.

As a member of The Law Society’s Family Law Advanced Panel for over 10 years, I am specialised in assisting clients in complex financial matters and in matters involving domestic abuse. I am a member of Resolution and am committed to promoting a constructive approach to family issues, helping clients to reach an out of court settlement wherever possible, with minimum stress. My client’s can always expect me to be dedicated to ‘fighting their corner’ with empathy and understanding.

Outside work I spend time with my family and friends, I like to cook and enjoy the great outdoors, gardening, and walks.
