Janet Sobel has been a real blessing in our lives, helping us to resolve a very tough case. She is exceptionally wise with her years of experience and has a brilliant understanding of the law. She is tremendously gifted with words, both written and verbal. She was strong, precise and steady in her work and kept us abreast of every action taken. Janet was quick to figure out solutions and to bring a quick resolution to our situation saving us from what could have been a long, drawn out process.

If you have a legal dispute, I would recommend you contact Janet Sobel for her expertise. Janet was able to help articulate an extremely complicated matter that had gone on for many years against a huge publicly traded corporation. Janet assisted me prioritizing and simplifying case facts and timelines in a way that was easy to understand and articulate, which in turn helped in presenting and resolving the case. Additionally, Janet ensured from the beginning, I understood the risks and costs in dispute options, so that I could determine the strategy that was best for my circumstances. Janet spends the time to digest the matter, understands the law, and how to represent her clients in a dignified and respectful manner to gets results.

I wish my experience with Janet had been as good as everyone else posting here. Unfortunately, it was not. While she was fairly knowledgeable about my legal matter, she became quite irate when I requested an itemized invoice to submit to the court, and she wrote several emails chastising me for asking. I was very upset by her emails and asked her to stop sending them. Even though my case has been settled, Janet has persisted in sending me emails soliciting donations for various charities she is involved with even though I have asked her to stop. I will be calling the local bar association on Monday to see if they can assist me in stopping these unwanted emails.

Janet's great understanding of the law comes from years of experience. She uses that knowledge to advocate and obtain results most others could not achieve. I highly recommend Janet to anyone. She is a great advocate.
