Joanna Wynes, Esq.
Joanna Wynes is a Settlement Consultant with Sage Settlement Consulting. Over the past several years in the settlement planning industry, Joanna has worked on many single-event and mass tort cases. She has worked closely with individuals and families dealing with motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, wrongful birth, wrongful death, product liability, dog bite, and workers’ compensation settlements. Top attorneys rely on Joanna to provide mediation support, help claimants understand their options and prepare customized settlement plans.
A Baltimore native, Joanna graduated magna cum laude from the University of Baltimore School of Law, where she was in the top two percent of her class. Following graduation, Joanna worked at several prominent Philadelphia law firms, representing clients involved in medical malpractice, defective product, and motor vehicle accident torts. She achieved seven- and eight-figure settlements and verdicts on behalf of her clients.
After returning to Baltimore, Joanna transitioned to the settlement industry as a Medicare Set-Aside consultant. She learned the nuances of the Medicare Secondary Payer Act and gained a deeper understanding of the financial implications faced by injured individuals with ongoing medical needs.
Through her professional career and the experience of growing up with a disabled parent, Joanna deeply understands and empathizes with the emotional, medical, and financial needs of injured individuals and their families. She knows that settlement funds need to last as long as possible. Without appropriate guidance, individuals risk losing government benefit eligibility, being taken advantage of financially, and spending the settlement funds too quickly. Joanna’s compassionate yet pragmatic approach to settlement planning helps claimants maximize their settlements and create long-lasting financial security.
