Joanne Wilsonis a Cost Lawyers/Cost Draftsmen at Cost Law Services working in Manchester office


I am a Costs Consultant who joined Cost Law Services in July 2019. I have over 24 years’ experience in drafting Legal Aid, but predominantly Civil Bills of Costs. I am based in Manchester and my day to day tasks are preparing Legal Aid and Inter Partes bills of costs.


I have:
• Nine O-levels and an A level;
• Trained as a Mortgage Advisor and passed the Financial Planning Certificate in 1993; and
• I passed the Association of Law Costs Draftsman’s examinations in October 1996.


I left National Westminster Bank in 1995 to pursue a career in legal costs. From 1997, I have been a self-employed, freelance Law Costs Draftsperson. I have undertaken a wide variety of work during my career but during the last five years my work load has been largely Immigration, Judicial Review.


In addition to my career I manage to be a full-time mother to three children. I enjoy foreign travel and I am a football enthusiast, qualifying as an FA Referee in the women’s league in 2019.
