Rockstar Family Law Attorney Joins General Counsel, P.C.

General Counsel, P.C. is pleased to announce we have convinced Joanna M. Foard to relocate from sunny and warm Florida to join our legal team to build and lead a family law practice.

As recently awarded by the Orlando Family Magazine (from where she relocated), she is an awesome attorney in the family law category. Her 120 (and growing) incredible client reviews within Avvo testify to her legal skills and devotion to her clients.

“She fought for me and was very responsive,” one review read. “Joanna was superb,” and “Joanna Foard has been my family law attorney for the past several months, and I have felt so supported and attended to,” other clients wrote. “Best lawyer ever!” concluded another client.

If you want to read more reviews, I highly recommend you visit Avvo.

Joanna has several other awards and accolades, including, just within this past year: AV Distinguished Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell; Orlando Magazine Women of the Year, 2020; 2020 Rising Star from Super Lawyers Magazine; 2020 Legal Elite by Florida Trend Magazine.

“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 a 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.”

And Joanna already has connections to the D.C. area.

“With family here in the D.C. metro area and having attended college at Catholic University, I’m happy to have relocated to the D.C. area and finding General Counsel, P.C. was a perfect fit,” she said. “General Counsel, P.C. is a great firm with a 16-year history of serving clients in the D.C. 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. Initially, Joanna will solely be representing clients in Virginia (not D.C. or Maryland).

Information on General Counsel, P.C.’s Family Law practice can be found at Family Law Practice. As a resource, she has created a Guide to Divorce that is available for free download.

Joanna’s biography can also be found on our website.
