Joanna Toch is a family law barrister. Joanna set up Family Law Cafe as an ethical way to navigate from problem to solution in family matters, offering emotional and practical support, mentoring by dedicated lawyers, and access to a network of experts. Most people cannot afford expensive legal fees but they also know this is a complex area and they will struggle to self-represent. Family Law Cafe’s value driven approach puts you in the centre of decision making with a support team around you to leave confusion behind and work to solution. They ensure you have the support with the emotional and practical issues of dealing with the opposing views of someone with whom you have previously been in an intimate relationship. Even if those views are only slightly different and still reasonable it is a tough call to do this without bespoke knowledge about your legal and factual situation and expert support.
Learn how this amazing organisation can help expedite and organise your family matter for you. There will also be some time for questions and answers.
Joanna is the CEO of Family Law Cafe. She is also a practising family law barrister who has been continuously working as a family lawyer for over 30 years, most of that time in barristers’ chambers but also within solicitors’ firms.
Joanna formerly taught trainee barristers in the skills of advocacy, ethics, law and procedure. She set and marked exams for the Bar Council. Joanna advised at the Croydon “one stop shop” for victims of domestic violence, the first in the country.
