I got the feeling that Attorney Jackson was invested in helping my son. I wanted to hire her right away as she really knows her stuff! Friendly and considerate.

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.

In general, professional and empathetic are hard to come by together but there are exceptions. I had the extreme privilege to be represented by Ms. Jackson in a life changing matter that I fell into due to some allegations that ended up having me charged and arrested thanks to some poor "police work".
The nature of these charges would have destroyed my family, my career and my entire life. I was initially represented by a "hot shot" lawyer from a big town who really believed he was doing me a favor by getting me a plea deal. Any sort of plea would have been devastating for me, especially because I would be forced to admit to something I didn't do.
With my court dates fast approaching, I contacted Ms. Jackson's office and she heard my entire story patiently while asking questions in between - she had already begun working on my case. Before we hung up, she said - " I believe you and I don't think you should go for a plea, can you come down so we can meet?"
She agreed to meet me on a Sunday afternoon and everything changed from that point. She initiated a hearing where a lot of unknowns on the basis of which I was about to be convicted came to light and in my favor. She did extensive research on similar cases and gathered facts that a court of law would find very difficult to deny (this is exactly what you want when making an argument!). There were several witnesses on my side who Ms Jackson personally interviewed, once again on weekends to accommodate everyone's schedules. She was also extremely patient and supportive of me and gave me the confidence to move forward to trial. For someone who has no criminal history, this would have been a scary ordeal but by seeing Ms Jackson's methodical approach to handing this case it gave me a lot of courage and peace to keep moving forward.
Then came the trial... Ms Jackson's opening statement was so powerful and compelling, I could see the jury acknowledging every word and just like how she believed me, the jury believed her. Through each of the 3 days, she was very energetic and convincing as she laid down the evidence and facts to the jury and at the end, I went from almost being a convicted criminal for life as a result cross-racial misidentification to being acquitted of all charges!
I believe that God places the right people in your path to protect you and I am grateful to Ms. Jackson and her staff for the amazing job that they did. They have been in the Stroudsburg area for almost 30 years and they are well respected in the local court system which goes a long way when dealing with the State or unreasonable judges.
If you are looking for a trustworthy attorney or have already hired Ms. Jackson, I can guarantee you she will be laser focused in helping you get the best outcome possible and you can remain at peace.

Like many people, I shopped around when looking for legal counsel. I was up against many odds in my case. Most of the lawyers I spoke to quoted me retainers far out of my affordability for pretty much taking the brunt of the full accusation. I was greatly discouraged. Then I spoke with Janet Jackson. From the beginning of the consultation, her demeanor was worlds apart from the others. She was warm and understanding like family. Not looking to just churn out a couple bucks copping a quick plea. She was a realist about the odds. However, not a defeatist by any means. She seemed intuitive and to have more resources to work with. She was confident that we could challenge but frank about it taking some time. When I asked about her cost, it was much more reasonable than the rest. So reasonable, that for a moment I was in shock. However, never felt as though it was a gimmick. Without hesitation, I trusted my good feeling about her by taking her offer.
Time came to pass. She kept me posted often with changes and possible hang ups. But none were without the foresight that she had from the very beginning. There was much chess playing on her part. She always made the right move because she anticipated each counter. She kept me reassured. I never lost faith. She always went above and beyond. As if it were her personal mission.
On the stressful day of outcomes,she got me literally the best possible resolve. Eventhough, all the other lawyers said it couldn't be done. She accomplished it flawlessly.
My livelihood is refreshed. Never say never.

Janet Jackson is truly a great lawyer. Very professional & knowledgeable in what she says and does. She turned something extremely stressful into a piece of cake. Great communication throughout, I was advised of any detail or change in my case immediately. Very prepared for any situation that may arise once you step into the world of "The System". You want her on your side, trust me. If your back's against the ropes, Janet will come out swinging. Delivering a legal K.O.!

Once in a lifetime you get to find a lawyer that is everything they say they are Miss Jackson. you are one of those lawyers.
She took a potential life changing situation and as far as I'm concerned fixed it.
So what potentially I would have had to go through her rates are very reasonable and surprisingly enough it was not all about the money!
Thanks to Miss Jackson my family and I can move on from this issue we had.
Thank you Miss Jackson for your work hopefully I won't need you ever again however if I do you're the first phone call I will make.
my sincere thanks Roland

I found myself in a very scary criminal situation that could have ruined my job, custody, and personal life. She helped me immediately in a nonjudgmental fashion. Her knowledge of the law in regard to my specific situation was obvious. Words cannot express how fortunate I feel to have her on my side.

She was very helpful with her consultation and would definitely recommend her anyone! The one thing i liked a lot was the fact that she wasnt pushy like a few other lawyers i spoke with.
