Joanne Fanizza was born in Brooklyn, NY, and lived on Long Island until 1972, when her family moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She finished high school in Fort Lauderdale, then attended the University of Florida, where she received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science in 1981. Her first career was in the newspaper business (1977-1986), serving as a newspaper reporter and editor, primarily with The Fort Lauderdale News and Sun-Sentinel. With a solid background in researching, writing and interviewing, she decided to return to graduate school for a law degree. She went to the University of Florida College of Law, graduating in December 1987 with a Juris Doctor degree. She was admitted to The Florida Bar in 1988. She practiced with a boutique firm specializing in personal injury and media law, then opened her own practice in Fort Lauderdale in 1995. She became a member of the New York Bar in 2007, at which time she returned to her New York roots. She opened a second office in Farmingdale, NY, which serves as the primary office, although she continues to see clients in Florida on a regular basis.
