About Jo

Joanne L. Belasco, Esq.One of the most common things I hear from my clients is “You’re not like other attorneys.” And that’s true. My clients love the fact that I don’t use a professional headshot to show people who I am. I use this picture of me with my Mustang mare, Reboot. Yes, I have the credentials and experience that you’ll find on every law firm website. I graduated from Boston College magna cum laude with a BA in Psychology in 1990, and from Suffolk University School of Law in 1993. I have been a member of the Massachusetts bar since December 1993.

But I offer my clients more: an attorney who works with them so that they understand the law and how it can make their lives better, who listens to them when they say they are afraid or unsure, and who genuinely cares about them. I know that some people are afraid of attorneys. I know that some people haven’t had a good experience with an attorney at some point in their life. I work hard so that my clients feel heard, so that they feel understood, so that they feel valued. You can tell me if you are scared about facing your estate planning. You can ask me the “dumb question” because I don’t consider it dumb. It’s not your job to know the law, it’s mine.

I have been a horsewoman for more than 40 years. Since 2001, I have been a Mustang advocate and have been fortunate enough to adopt and gentle wild Mustangs. Due to family health issues, I cannot live in Massachusetts. I live in beautiful Northwestern Nebraska. I love to photograph nature, hike, practice yoga and meditation, and spend time with my horses.
