Joanna L. Suyes focuses her practice on Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims. When working with clients in social security cases, Joanna can assist with everything from filing the initial application to going through the appeals process, including representing clients in hearings before administrative law judges.

She is a member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR) as well as the Social Security Sections of both the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association and the American Association for Justice.

“I keep up to date by reading trade magazines and the press, attending seminars and participating in several disability benefits listservs,” says Joanna, who frequently contributes articles and leads seminars in Virginia on SSDI and SSI issues.

A native of Chesterfield County and a graduate of Thomas Dale High School, Joanna graduated from the College of William & Mary and received her Master of Divinity degree from the Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond.

She went on to earn her law degree from the T. C. Williams School of Law at the University of Richmond, where she graduated cum laude.

Joanna has worked as an associate at Marks & Harrison since that time.

“What I like most about our law firm are the people I work with,” says Joanna, who has been named to Virginia Super Lawyers’ Rising Stars list each year since 2012. “We are hard-working, dedicated and truly interested in getting justice for our clients.”

In addition to representing her clients, Joanna has dedicated herself to the cause of increasing access to legal services for Virginia’s low-income residents. She serves on the Board of Directors of the Virginia Poverty Law Center and is a past chair of the Virginia State Bar’s Access to Legal Services Committee and the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association Pro Bono Committee.

When she is not working, Joanna enjoys cooking, running, traveling, going to Washington Redskins football games, and teaching Tort & Personal Injury Law in VCU’s Paralegal Certificate Program.
