Joann represents creditors, defendants and bankruptcy trustees in all types of bankruptcy litigation, including fraud-based actions, claim disputes and non-dischargeability actions and has acted as a discovery master in bankruptcy court. She also counsels lenders and borrowers in commercial loan transactions, negotiating and documenting working capital and term loans, and represents both plaintiffs and defendants in complex commercial litigation. Using her experience in bankruptcy and litigation, coupled with her understanding of commercial loans, Joann counsels lenders and borrowers in all phases of workout and debt restructuring matters.

In January 2012, she was nominated by the Board of Judges for the NDNY Bankruptcy Court to the Standing Local Rules Committee. In December 2010 and again in 2014, Joann was appointed by the Chief Judge of the District Court for the Northern District of New York to serve a four-year term on the Panel of Attorneys Responsible for the Investigation and Prosecution of Attorney Disciplinary Complaints. Joann received the Capital District Women's Bar Association's 2007 Pro Bono Award and the Legal Project's 2005 Kurt Clobridge Award for her work providing legal advice to low-income clients. Joann completed the American Bankruptcy Institute's Mediation Training Program in December, 2011 and is a member of the United States District Court NDNY and the United States Bankruptcy Court NDNY mediation panel.
