    • I do not recommend Janice Oviatt.
    • I hired Janice 1-3 years ago.
    • Janice handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Mrs Oviatt took our money in February to extend our granddaughters (3 each) Canadian Passport visiting status and to assist with a citizenship application. We had trouble getting her to return our calls the first week, she does not keep her office hours as advertised ( no secretary and the door is locked ) and we are still trying to get a response from her and here it is 6/22/13. We had an appointment this morning ( 6/22/13, Saturday @ 0900) but she was a no show !

  2. Takes your money and gives no service

    We hired this lawyer for an Immigration matter. She requested the money upfront, which we did, that was in February and we are still waiting for her to render the service, and it is now almost the end of May. What should have taken a couple of days to prepare is taking months, she also said she could prepare paperwork for an extention, then after the deadline had past, informed us that it could not be done, we paid for this service and nothing. She talks alot about other cases, but never about the case she was hired to take care of. She does return calls, I would never recommend this lawyer, still trying to get all our files back and some monetary satisfaction, which I am sure there will be none. Not happy at all

  3. THIS LAWYER TOOK MY MONEY AND I NEVER HEARD FROM HER AGAIN.
