Joanna Menikou

Senior Associate Solicitor - Private Client

What do you do?

I advise clients on Wills and estate administration matters. I am a member of STEP (the global Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) and a member of the Law Society Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme.

How do you make a difference for your clients?

Given the sensitive nature of the work that I do, I offer each of my clients patience and a sympathetic ear. I do my best to make time with a client like a conversation with a friend so they are at ease and comfortable talking to me about often very emotional issues.

Tell us about your clients

Having qualified in 2004, I have acted for thousands of clients in connection with making their Wills and handled hundreds of probate cases. During this time, it has become clear that my clients are as varied as their wishes and that is what makes my job so interesting.

  • Very friendly and at the same time very professional - I would recommend Joanna to anyone. She also helped with my new will most satisfactorily.

  • Joanna Menikou provided an excellent service, very professional and approachable when dealing with the complex procedure of probate for me. .

  • Two years ago my younger brother passed away without leaving a will. As if this wasn't enough he also owned half a property abroad, with the complication of those laws and language! Never the less the challenge was tackled and solved with expertise and patience by Joanna menikou, to a very successful conclusion, in considerably less time than we thought it might have taken. I would highly recommend her services.
