Joanna Couch first joined Elliott Law Group, PLLC as an intern through Spokane Community College’s ABA-approved paralegal program. Excelling in her studies and graduating with honors, Joanna received an Associate Degree in Applied Science in Paralegal Studies and was awarded one of two Outstanding Paralegal Awards given.

Since joining the firm in 2012, Joanna has helped countless families reunite here in the U.S. and has also assisted numerous immigrants in obtaining legal status and U.S. citizenship.

Joanna was born in Los Angeles, California and raised in Yakima, Washington. Joanna is fluent in both Spanish and English. She was raised in a very close Hispanic family and community. Being brought up by her first-generation Mexican immigrant parents, and growing up in an very productive agricultural region, Joanna knows first-hand how difficult life can be for the immigrant community in the United States. She is grateful for being able to utilize her education and language skills to help the immigrant community with acquiring legal assistance and effective counsel in a range of legal issues they may encounter. Joanna takes great pride in her work and thoroughly enjoys the ability to positively impact people’s lives in such a meaningful way.

Client Reviews
I applied for citizenship the first time, but my husband was previously denied citizenship. We hired Elliott Law Group and both Lana and Kate really exceeded our expectations. My husband and I just got sworn in as U.S. citizens! T.S.
I first hired Lana to help me obtain legal residency for my parents in 2006, then for my wife in 2007. She did a great job and my parents and wife got their green cards. Although Lana is not in California anymore, she still assists with immigration processes for other members of my family. I highly recommend her services to anyone who needs the help of a highly qualified immigration lawyer. S.P.
Good day, Atty. Lana. I would like to thank you for all the support and assistance. We appreciated and indeed, me and my wife very happy with how you handled my daughter’s case. We can personally say that we made the right decision for having your law office as our choice. tks a lot. V.N.
