Jane Carey was the worst lawyer I have ever hired, I would not recommend her to anyone. She made a catalogue of simple, costly errors that I have subsequently had to hire other lawyers to correct her mistakes.
She got the names, dates of birth of my children wrong, something so simple yet important her office was not able to document on the final divorce decree correctly. I requested for her to make two credit cards which we me and my soon to be ex wife accummulated expenses during our marriage liable for both. Instead of making my ex wife liable for half of both cards, she made her liable for the credit card with the smaller balance. I advised her this is what I wanted several times yet she still insisted on doing it the way she wanted to.
She drafted a bogus after the fact agreement between my dad and I and had us pre date it for several years earlier in an attempt to prove my ex wife and I were both liable for a downpayment money from my father. Later on I found out from another lawyer was illegal and if the bar found out she could lose her licence to practice.
She also set me up on a visitation and child support for $1250.00 a month, another lawyer (competent lawyer) increased visitation and thus bringing the payment down to $250.00 a month. This lawyer didn't work any magic, he just worked for his client, rather than being incompetent and lazy.
She made numberous references to my personality declaring her obvious disdane for me personally, what a waste, of time and money.

Attorney Carey, handled a divorce for me as guardian of my incapacitated mother. The first thing in which I noticed was the amount of time spent with her clients, this is unprecedented. Most lawyers charge for every phone call, every email, etc, which is not the case with attorney Carey. This lawyer works on weekends while other attorneys are playing golf, which I found very accommodating to my busy schedule. Its also a family environment which made me feel very comfortable. Others have mentioned irrelevant family chatter, in my view when you are dealing with sensitive family matters, it helps to know that your attorney is a real person, and you are not just another client. I continue to have attorney Carey represent me regarding guardianship matters, and will not hesitate to recommend her to other clients, in need of a real honest hard working attorney.

Jane Carey handled my case in '07. I had all the faith in her that she would represent me with truth and fairness. Neither came from my case. Long behold, I could have done the same without her. Better yet would have gotten the same results if I didn't show up to court at all. Long behold. Here it is 2015 and I'm still trying to correct Court errors, final order verbiage, Attorney overlooks and/or disregards etc from a very simple divorce case with children. Would not recommend to my Ex!!!!
