Joanne Bateman Profile
Jo is currently studying for her Institute of Legal Executives qualifications and presently specialises in Personal Injury Law, where her work is supervised by Ian Gee, Director and Head of Personal Injury.
She has gained experience in both Dispute Resolution and Personal Injury Law at JWK where she initially assisted with a variety of claims including complex, high-value cases as well as Medical Negligence cases, before taking on her own caseload of claims.
Jo graduated from Lancaster University in 2002 with a Degree in Music, following which she trained, qualified and then worked as a Secondary School Teacher. After having a family, she decided to embark on a change of career, joining JWK in 2012.
Jo grew up in Somerset where much of her time was spent playing in orchestras and singing in choirs. Having settled in the North, she now spends most of her spare time with her family and getting outdoors as much as possible to enjoy a good walk, followed by a nice cup of tea and some cake.
