  • William G. Hammond

    I endorse this lawyer. Janet is an expert on probate and estate planning matters. In North Carolina, she wrote the book on probate. It isn't often that you can work with a legal technician who also has the people skills to handle your case. Janet is that rare attorney who can handle both the people side and the legal side of a case.
