Additional practice areas include Criminal Defense, Traffic Violations, Consumer Bankruptcy, Personal Injury.  Joani attended law school at the University of Missouri – Kansas City, graduating in the top third of her class. She has gained valuable experience working for a plaintiff’s firm, a defense firm, the public defender’s office and several general practice firms before starting her own law practice, The Harshman Law Firm, LLC in June 2004.
