Joanna Paton


Jo joined THB’s Suffolk Team in September 2013. She is based in our Ipswich Office and since that time has amassed a large following in the local Courts.

Qualifying as a solicitor  in 2001, Jo went on to specialise exclusively in Criminal Law. She spent several years working in the Criminal Department of a large London Firm before moving to a Criminal Firm in Hertfordshire and then re-locating to Suffolk.

Jo is in the Magistrates on a daily basis, where she is well respected, conducting her own Trials. She also manages a large Crown Court case load covering a wide range of serious and complex offences.

Jo is  passionate about Criminal Law and all the challenges it brings and is totally committed to ensuring that all of her clients are afforded the strongest  defence possible.
