  • John Francis Kennedy

    I endorse this lawyer. Janet is a without a doubt one of the toughest lawyers that I have litigated against. She is thoroughly prepared, lets nothing slide by, and she is not afraid to take the tough cases. Her professionalism and litigation savvy is exceptional.

  • William Austin Watkins

    I endorse Janet Jackson because she is an incredible courtroom lawyer. If the endorsement program allowed multiple areas of law I would add Criminal Defense to my endorsement. I have had the chance to see her in court over 50 times. She has the respect of the bench and does a great job keeping her clients calm and focused. You certainly chose wisely if she is your advocate!!!
