Associate Attorney, LSR Family Law Group

Joanna M. Pawlowska is an associate attorney focusing her practice on all aspects of family and matrimonial matters. Joanna began working with Mr. Rakowski at his previous law firm after clerking with the firm while attending law school.


Joanna earned her Juris Doctor degree from Loyola University School of Law, focusing her studies on family law and trusts and estate planning. While in law school, Joanna held a judicial externship with the Honorable William Stewart Boyd in the Domestic Relations Division of the Circuit Court of Cook County. Joanna also served as an executive editor for the Children’s Legal Rights Journal, a staff writer for the Public Interest Law Reporter, and as a legal writing tutor. These experiences enabled Joanna to gain firsthand experience and hone skills directly relevant to the practice of family and matrimonial law.
