Printable Bio



Joanne joined Beatty and Wozniak, P.C. as an Associate Attorney in 2017. She brings over 10 years of extensive industry experience to her practice, specializing in oil and gas title preparation, due diligence and curative, plus corporate and transactional matters. Joanne has worked for several major oil and gas companies.


After finishing law school, Joanne worked as a landman, lease analyst and division order analyst in Oklahoma, Louisiana and Colorado; where she concentrated primarily on title preparation, lease acquisitions, drafting oil and gas agreements, and due diligence projects. Joanne also worked for a general practice law firm in Mississippi handling cases involving products liability, negligence, insurance and business disputes; but realized after a year that her true passion was in energy law and the constantly changing oil and gas industry.


Joanne’s oil and gas experience lead her to practice law in Denver, where she enjoys volunteer work and running marathons and ultra-marathons in her free time.
