Janet is quite simply the finest attorney I have ever met. She guided me through one of the hardest experiences of my life and I will forever be grateful for everything she did on my behalf. Without going into great detail of the specifics of my case, I was potentially facing multiple felony charges as well as misdemeanor charges for a situation in which I was being portrayed by the local police and media in a manner completely unreflective of me or my situation. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that I owe my freedom and my cleared criminal record to Janet Jackson.
Within one day of me reaching out to Janet, she drove to meet me and we discussed my situation. Over this time, Janet very carefully took the time to ask me personal questions to get a sense as to who I was and why I was in the situation in which I was. Never once did I feel I was being judged or made to feel ashamed of myself and instead I felt empowered by Janet's honest, direct, knowledgeable, and supportive presence and demeanor. I retained Janet immediately and although no charges were formally brought for nearly a year, she did reach out to all relevant parties to lay the groundwork/foundation for what eventually was my acceptance into an ARD diversion program.
Janet has always been extraordinarily responsive and she immediately conveyed to me such strength and confidence and instilled such a great sense of relief in me. Janet has every single quality one should look for in an attorney; knowledge, experience, confidence, hard work and dedication, compassion, commitment to her clients, as well as an extraordinarily impressive ability to work with all involved legal and law-enforcement parties. Over the past nearly two years in which Janet has been my attorney, it has been incredibly clear how profoundly and universally Janet is respected and admired by her peers and all related professionals.
Janet possesses every single quality one could ever look for in an attorney and even when it may feel that the situation is overwhelming or hopeless, with Janet as your attorney you quickly learn to take her at her word and that when she says something she means it. I have learned from this process that the legal system can be quite unforgiving and painful and frightening, and yet because I was blessed enough to have Janet by my side, I never once gave up hope or feared for the worst as she instilled the utmost confidence in me that she would do everything within her power to be there for me.
With Janet as my attorney, I knew that if I listened to what she said and followed her directions, that I was being shepherded to safety no matter how upsetting or frightening the legal situation may have gotten at times. I thank God every day I found Janet and I have learned so much about myself throughout this period of time. Janet gave me all the tools to get through this situation and moreover to realize that I never want this or anything like this to ever happen again. I have made personal changes in myself, and, moreover, realize that in life there are no gray areas and that there is simply right and wrong. Janet never forced me to believe this or anything else but through her actions and her commitment to her clients, I realized how blessed I am to have had her as my attorney and that without her guidance and support and amazing skills as an attorney that I very likely would currently be in prison.
I will always be so profoundly grateful for Janet Jackson. She is the finest attorney I have ever met.
