AttorneyAbout Joanne Dekker

Joanne holds a Bachelor’s degree in American History from Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., from which she graduated cum laude. She also received her law degree from Catholic University, and while a University student, she interned with the U.S. Department of State in the Office of the Historian.

Community Experience

Joanne is the author of two books, Employee’s Guide to Discrimination and Termination and Planning for Pets: Trusts, Leash Laws and More. The book about pets combines her love of the law with her love of animals. In fact, Joanne has volunteered for more than a decade with the Loudoun County Animal Shelter. She walks the dogs, works on basic training using positive reinforcement, and provides them with massive amounts of love. She has also worked with abused and under-socialized dogs in the Shelter that have arrived as part of large-scale seizures or puppy mill rescues.

But that isn’t Joanne’s only community service experience. She was co-captain of her college women’s volleyball team, so she is now a volunteer volleyball coach with the Western Loudoun Volleyball Club, coaching mostly middle school kids in rec leagues, travel teams, and skills camps. She recently enjoyed coaching her first boys’ team but discovered the truth in what others had told her: “With boys, it’s like herding cats.”

Noteworthy

She also enjoys traveling. She went on a “plane, train, and automobile” spring break trip with her daughter that included a train from Harper’s Ferry to Chicago to Flagstaff; a Mustang convertible to the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, and Las Vegas; and finally a first class flight home.

As for her academic background, Joanne holds a Bachelor’s degree in American History from Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., from which she graduated cum laude. She also received her law degree from Catholic University, and while a University student, she interned with the U.S. Department of State in the Office of the Historian.

Around the office, people say Joanne is easygoing and empathetic with both clients and coworkers. It’s also important to her to be fair-minded and treat everyone, no matter who they are, with respect.

This is where it starts to get better.
