I started out with another lawyer - I wished i had been with Jana from day one. Jana took over my case, stopped the bleeding and put me in a position that was considerably less expensive than the one i was facing with the first lawyer.
Jana makes sure you have all the details necessary to make informed decisions concerning your case. Jana provided realistic expectations throughout the case. She is a wonderful sounding board - but she will tell you based on her experience and the law whether or not your idea is sound. She was able to get this case to settlement where it belonged instead of a costly trial. I wish i had hired her as my first choice.
I would highly recommend Jana to anyone in need of legal advice / services for divorce. Even if you are doing an amicable divorce see Jana - she will help make sure you aren't missing information that might come back to bite you later on in the process. She is down to earth, great to work with and in my opinion a wonderful lawyer.
My divorce began in September 2014. When I started the process, I was confused and afraid. I didn’t know the first thing about going through a divorce.
I worried that the legal process would be vague. I worried that I would be dragged along with no end in sight. I worried that I would spend thousands of dollars just to end in bankruptcy.
I spoke to several lawyers but Janet Lamanna understood my needs the best. She put all my fears to rest.
She answered all my questions…
… she created a custom strategy based on my situation…
… she and explained the process to me in layman’s terms…
… she kept me informed every step of the way…
… she responded in a very timely manner to the other lawyer’s correspondence.
Einstein said… “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”
Janet explained abstract concepts with crystal clarity and helped me grasp every part of the process.
… I knew how Tennessee calculated Child Support…
… I knew about Child visitation, and how it tied in to Child Support…
… I knew how to identify the different types of alimony and how they applied to my situation…
… I knew the role of retirement plans in a divorce…
… I knew the ins and outs of the division of property…
… I knew the rules of the divorce complaint, the different ways to serve the divorce, strategies for mediation, what happens at mediation, what happens after mediation, what happens at trial and lots more.
I gained knowledge and peace of mind the first time I consulted with Janet; I even left thinking I was a lawyer myself.
I recommend her services to anyone wanting a lawyer who:
Understands Tennessee divorce Law
Understands how to test and apply different scenarios
Understands the importance of each step of the process
Understands the client and ties it all together in a legal, effective, custom based strategy aimed at a successful outcome.
Ms. Lamanna was very direct and specific when it came to my case. She advised me as to the reasonableness of my expectations, and coached me well as we pursued the defendant.
I feel that she represented my interested as the case progressed, and we were able to settle without going through the expense of a trial.
I was very satisfied.
Ms. Lamanna represented me in a divorce case involving children. I was highly impressed with her attention to all details of my case and quick responses to my every questions. This was one of the most stressful times in my life and Ms. Lamanna helped put me at ease and alleviated a lot of the stress I was dealing with. In the end, I received the results I was after and I don't think it would have been possible without her help. I recommend her to anyone going through any issues that need attorney involvement.
Ms. Lamanna did an excellent job handling my child custody matter. She really listens and cares about her clients. She also really knows her stuff. She's a great advocate.
Extremely professional, Very nice, Listens to you and works well for my interest.
In a situation as undesirable as divorce, I could not have asked for a better lawyer. Talented, knowledgable, easy to work with, very responsive, and kept me informed every step of the way. Most of all, she really cared.
