I met Janelle in 11/08 via a friend. I had just about lost my entire life until I met her & my legal team. Without her, I would not have my family back together. I would have for sure have lost my children for life. Together, we were successful in suing DSHS. Janelle has been key since the day I had met her. She followed my case before my children were returned & advised me on how to handle situations where I felt blindfolded. Even with a public defender. Janelle volunteered her work & valuable time until she saw my children returned. That, to my family & myself, will forever be priceless. After the children were returned, Janelle jumped on board with our lawsuit against DSHS, along with her amazing staff. I cannot put into words, their heart, hard work, her own money, and hours & hours, of time, spent on our case until she resolved it properly. My children received their piece of justice, & I must thank Carman Law office staff, & especially Janelle. Watching her work was definitely one of the most inspiring moments regarding this case I've witnessed. She works with her heart. 100%, she is a woman who works with her heart. She was extremely caring when my children were deposed. Those are fragile situations where children can be uncomfortable. Janelle made sure they were comfortable. She brought special snacks, even called me first to be sure she brought things they would enjoy for several hour long depositions. She definitely goes out of her way to ensure that everyone is as comfortable as possible in uncomfortable situations. My children loved her & she worked extremely well with them. She's professional. Even moments were we should have been offended or outraged, she was naturally graceful. She was extremely easy to connect to. Easy to contact, whether email or via phone. If she was busy, she always made time for me. These were two cases that emotionally tapped me out. Janelle was one of my backbones & I would not have made it through phase one, where honestly I wanted to give up without her. Her kind words motivated me to pick back up & her encouragement absolutely kept me going all the way through to the very end. Janelle worked with my family & myself for four years straight, never missing a beat. To this very day and for the rest of my life I will be forever grateful for Carman Law Office. The staff genuinely cares. Janelle genuinely cares. And they are very vocal about this. They make you feel & know, that you are actually hanging onto a solid rope, rather than a thread. Janelle's actions prove that she does her job with her heart & I know personally her genuine motivation is for the people she represents. You couldn't ask for a better lawyer. If I could give her more stars, I would. She is now someone my children & I will forever remember. She's the beautiful part of a very ugly chapter in my children's & mines lives that we had to endure. She definitely softened the blow for everybody. For this, my entire family will eternally be grateful. Excellent, excellent, attorney. Plays very well with others as well. I would and have recommended her multiple times.

Janelle and her staff worked on a business matter for us. We run a small business and we weren't getting paid for already completed work by a customer of ours. Janelle Carman and her staff were very courteous and helped us get this matter resolved. We will be using her for all our future needs.

Most of this firm's clients are clients for multiple years. Meaning they stretch things out to charge their clients. The first few court date the firms main attorney Janelle made an appearance then I was quickly passed off to another lawyer who had just passed her bar exam . The case in total has been going on for 2years 3months. When things in the case went from good to bad the communication went away. I never felt secure or sure of what was going to happen or what needed to happen. But the tipping point was when I emailed the attorney done questioned and she answered by emailing me a balance if my account. So if your looking for an attorney to really represent you look somewhere else. 2+Years = 5800

You can look all over the county, region, or state, and you will not find an attorney who will be more committed to you and case than Janelle. I worked with Janelle for four years, and I have seen her stay at the office later, and work harder than any other attorney to get the best results for clients. She is brilliant, committed, and will not give up. She sees possibilities where others see problems, and will give her all to you and your case.
