  • Terri Rae Luken

    I endorse this lawyer. Janet did an outstanding job of keeping a difficult mediation on a will contest focused and on-track, ultimately contributing significantly to the resolution of a highly-disputed probate. Her knowledge, experience, perspective and manner make her an outstanding advocate for her clients as well as an excellent colleague.
