Medical Negligence Paralegal
I had a very wonderful experience with Simpson Millar throughout the journey with my case. I never felt lost. I was treated like a family member whenever I needed them [and the] response was so quick. Thanks so much Simpson Millar and especially Joanna Ziobro. She was very friendly and cooperative. I would like to thank Joanna and whole team who helped me. I wish you all best of luck.Sajida Sarwar
Joanna also helps clients by representing them during the NHS complaints procedure, and then throughout the claims process.
Her favourite part of her role is interacting with clients. Even though it can be very emotional at times, she finds being able to support and help clients throughout this stressful process incredibly rewarding.
Joanna speaks both English and Polish, and is committed to supporting the Polish community with their legal issues, and ensuring their problems aren’t diminished because of a language barrier.
Joanna qualified as a Lawyer (Adwokat) in Poland in March 2016, and specialised in compensation claims, civil and family matters before moving to the UK.
She joined Simpson Millar in August 2016, working at first in our Personal Injury Team, helping Solicitors in multi-track cases involving accidents at work and public spaces.
Joanna then managed her own small caseload of fast-track cases, dealing with compensation cases for Polish clients who had been injured in accidents at work. She also helped Polish clients during the initial process by answering our helpline.
She then joined our Medical Negligence department in December 2018, and now plans to qualify as a Solicitor in England and Wales.
Interests outside of work
Joanna enjoys baking, travelling, spending time with her friends and family.
