  • Greg May

    I’ve had the opportunity to consult with Janet on several occasions and to work with her closely on an appeal. Her approach is not just meticulous, but practical. Her analytical ability, writing, and instinct for identifying issues — especially in tough cases — make her outstanding where it really counts in appeals. She has a knack for presenting even the most technical issues as an easy-to-understand "big picture." As an appeals lawyer myself, I am grateful to have Janet as a resource to consult from time to time, and I would consider myself lucky to work on more cases with her in the future.
