Senior Associate Solicitor
I work closely with my clients to understand their individual needs and am passionate about achieving the best result possible for my clients.
Get to know Joanne
I qualified as a solicitor in 1994 and have therefore been acting for injured clients for over 26 years. I am an experienced litigation solicitor, specialising in clinical negligence claims.
My experience includes claims against GPs, hospitals, care homes, dentists, surgeons, nurses and ambulance service providers etc. On behalf of my clients, I bring claims against both the NHS and private clinicians. However, my areas of expertise are birth and obstetric injuries, delays in cancer diagnosis, orthopaedic injuries (including amputations) and negligent surgical technique.
I have conducted many high-value catastrophic injury cases, including brain injury and amputation cases. I have also concluded several cerebral palsy cases, the last three of which had capitalised settlement values of £8 million, £10 million and £11 million.
I am currently instructed in a number of catastrophic injury claims following failures in management after suffering a stroke, as well as several lower limb amputation cases.
I've been ranked in the Legal 500 2022 edition as a key lawyer.
I have been accredited by the Law Society as having expertise in the field of clinical negligence.
The extra mile
I act as a mentor and occasional competition judge at the University of Law.
I am an active member of the Birmingham Medico-Legal Society as well as being a member of Headway (Birmingham and Solihull).
I am also a regular attendee at meetings of the Society of Clinical Injury Lawyers.
Joanne has always responded in a warm, timely, informative manner and I could not have got through this case without her hard, thorough work. I would have no hesitation in recommending or using S+G, Joanne and her team again if the need were to arise. Client testimonial (for Joanne Warren)
I have found Joanne Warren an outstanding solicitor of Slater and Gordon and has been very thorough in all aspects of my case. Joanne has been considerate to my needs and has explained things logically and with clarity. I have found Joanne to be approachable and most important available when needed, I couldn't have wished for a better person to help me. Client testimonial (for Joanne Warren)
Going through the process of a negligence claim is a very stressful time, especially when you are dredging up very raw and painful memories of some of the worst times of your life. Joanne Warren was supportive, sensitive and allowed our family to progress the case at a speed that was comfortable to us. She was always on hand to answer questions and was readily available if we wanted to question anything, at any point in the whole process. Client testimonial (for Joanne Warren)
