I spoke with Janet and her team to address a guardianship concern we had for my mother. Janet and her team were helpful, clear and guided us through the steps we would need to take. They even explained the options we had that did not involve using their services. We would highly recommend her for family law matters.

We hired Janet to fight a complex custody battle, involving my niece and nephew. From the beginning, Janet told us how hard this case would be but that she believed in our fight. She often warned and prepared us to be disappointed because of the case complexity and the tough Judge we were assigned. When the trial date arrived, Janet was prepared and did a brilliant job. Her closing argument was moving and impressive. Somehow, Janet pulled it off and we won this case and we were all amazed even though we know the correct verdict was given. The Judge commended Janet at least twice on her work during the various proceedings and in the end he said this case was in the top three most complex and difficult cases of his career as an attorney, prosecutor, or judge. To win that kind of case speaks volumes about Janet. She was caring and concerned about all members of my family, as well as being an exceptional lawyer! I would highly recommend her to anyone.

My husband and I hired Janet Gemmel in a very complicated custody battle regarding our grandson with special needs .
She was very professional compassionate and knowledgeable and was able to walk us thru this process with confidence !
I would rate her as a excellent attorney for family law and would recommend her to others knowing that she could represent them well!!
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
