Joanna Davidoff is a compassionate lawyer and a talented negotiator.
Joanna began her post-secondary education at the University of Alberta where she took a Bachelor of Arts Degree (BA) in Psychology (major) and Sociology (minor). Here, she gained an understanding of cognitive, emotional, and social behaviours, practised critical and analytical thinking, and developed her research and writing abilities. After graduating with her BA, Joanna returned to the University of Alberta to pursue her Bachelor of Laws Degree (LLB) and devoted much of her elective coursework to studying family law specific issues. Joanna graduated law school in June 2010 and was then called to the Bar in September 2011. For years, Joanna worked diligently as a sole practitioner in family law before becoming one of the founding members of TC Family Law Group, an association for the practice of law, with Dale Tumbach, Thomas Colquhoun, Mark Demas, Jennifer Leung, and Sean Schaefer.
While at the University of Alberta, Joanna participated in various extra-curricular and philanthropic activities. Joanna has always had a competitive streak, so, naturally, she spent some of her free time competing in marathons and triathlons. She also volunteered as a Big Sister for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Mentoring Program. In this role, Joanna’s empathetic and compassionate nature were her biggest asset. She used these skills to connect and guide her mentee. In addition, she practised providing fresh perspectives and valuable advice. This opportunity allowed her to refine her leadership abilities and communication skills. In law, Joanna applies her skillset and her experience to provide comprehensive, compassionate and cogent legal advice and serves her clients with excellence. Joanna has experience litigating in Alberta’s Provincial Court and the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta.
When Joanna is not tackling tough cases and negotiating for her clients, she spends her time outdoors: hiking, camping, gardening, and golfing. In fact, Joanna currently holds first place in the Annual TC Family Law Group Golf Tournament in a team alongside Thomas Colquhoun and a TC Family Law assistant.
