This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
I highly appreciate her humane and attentive approach.
Jane Muir helped me with a legal matter that was very important to me, and affected my life. She took the time to explain the issues thoroughly to me, and I really felt that she cared about me and my situation. She worked very hard and was extremely well organized and prepared for the trial, and the outcome was in my favor. I trust her and plan to use her again, and would recommend her to my friends.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Knowledgeable Listener and Problem Solver
I found Jane Muir through a friend's referral in a probate case that was not making any headway. Jane listened very attentively throughout the consultation and really made sure she got every detail correct. While probate is not her specialty, specially dealing with an estate in a foreign country, Jane was able to understand the complexity of the case and refer me to a lawyer that matched my needs. After meeting with the referred lawyer, I realized not only is Jane very knowledgeable, she's also honest about what she does not know. During my consultation, Jane was able to reach into her network to dial in an expert who is now my current attorney.

Simply the Best
I have been burned in the past with lawyers. I have paid hefty sums and have had very little to show for it. Jane was recommended to me in 2011 and I have been using her ever since. She takes care of all my business legalities and walks me through everything. I feel a lot better not having to guess or assume what some legal term means. I really appreciate her advice and how she will answer my emails within 24 hrs. She is the legal consultant for my business. I have her on retainer and she takes care of (literally) everything for me. Jane is sweet and friendly to her clients while handling tough legal messes with grace. She is thorough. She makes sure that she looks over every detail and discusses everything in depth with us to make sure I understand all of my options, the possible legal routes to take, and the possible legal outcomes/consequences. I really appreciate the communication and feel at ease knowing she is taking care of everything. I would highly recommend her.

A privilege
Ms Muir is an absolute privilege to work with. Her vast knowledge helped me sort out all the details of starting a small business and becoming incorporated. I recently fell victim to a misuse of power by a police officer, resulting in several tickets and my vehicle being impounded. Traffic court I understand is not most lawyers favorite part of law but, Ms Muir graciously worked on my case and fought to get all my tickets dismissed. She is a pleasure to work with and a joy to be around in and out of the courtroom.

Exceptional experience
G+M have handled many cases for my company including one many thought would be an impossible victory (which we ended up winning). Jane and her staff are on point every time with guidance and preparation. I could not ask for a better legal experience especially their friendly staff and fair prices. We continue to use G+M for all of our legal matters

Stick-to-itiveness!
Jane was dependable and stuck to my case until I was compensated. It was a tough case involving a plane accident and Jane did a great job. Jane put a lot of herself into my case and never gave up. I would recommend Jane for any type of case, she has a wide array of legal skills ate her disposal for her clients.

Highly recommend Jane Muir
From the moment I contacted Ms. Muir I knew I was in good hands. I found her to be knowledgeable regarding the issue I contacted her for, trustworthy, and patient. She was on top of every matter pertaining to my case. I was extremely nervous about the matter and Ms. Muir consistently showed both patience and assurance to me. I am happy to say I had a positive outcome and would definitely contact her again should the need arise. I highly recommend Ms. Muir.

Jane Muir a true professional
This case came up with very little notice. We met with Jane the night before and gave her all the information we had. Jane met us at the court house the next morning and helped us with the case. Jane Muir was a professional in every way and was very helpful in answering questions and worked under pressure without a problem. I have worked with other attorneys before and did not have near the attention that Jane gave to myself and the case. I would highly recommend Jane to any person seeking legal services.

A great help. Profesional.
Jane kept me updated every step of the way. She made herself available to answer my "what if" questions. Very pleased with her work. While i hope to not need the services of a lawyer again, if needed Mrs. Muir would be my first call.

A Great Experience
My experience with Ms. Muir has been very gratifying. She handled my case with great care and professionalism, notifying me constantly via email regarding my case status. She inspires a great amount of trust, something essential for this kind of profession. I would definitely recommend her and will not hesitate to consult with her any future legal matters.

Great Experience & Highly Reccomended
This was by far the best experience I've had with a lawyer. Ms. Muir was a step ahead the entire time and was always upfront about the case. She was helpful and demonstrated great knowledge of expertise in the matter. I was always able to make very informed decisions because she did extensive research and always had an answer to questions I had, as well as explained things in a way that would make sense to me as the client. I never had to wait more than 24 hours for a response and most of the time it was within a few hours even. All-in-all a very pleasant experience and I would use her services again.

Best experience I've had with a lawyer
Dealing with attorneys is rarely a pleasant experience because you only require their services when you have a problem on your hands, but when Ms.Muir handled my case she did so with such diligence that I felt the problem had been resolved even before reaching an official settlement. She handled every matter seamlessly and constantly kept me updated via emails. Her efforts were clearly evident in every interaction I had with her and not just in the outcome of my case.

Excellent Through and Through
Attorney Jane Muir is a fresh burst of professionalism and honesty in a field and city that oftentimes lacks both. Her drive, dedication and extensive knowledge of legal processes helps me build my business the smartest and strongest way around, offering her thorough advice and consistent attorney services.

She knows everyone and, far more importantly, she has earned the respect and admiration of Miami's legal community in a short period of time. She is universally known as a person who gets things done. She is organized and methodical. If that makes her sound dull; au contraire. Her cheerfulness and enthusiasm are infectious. Her adversaries simultaneously respect and fear her. I would not want to be her opponent in any jury or bench trial because it's difficult to imagine her losing."
