    I like Janet a lot as a person but not as a lawyer. When her secretary quit, her organization and attention to my case virtually disappeared. She gave me advice that I questioned repeatedly and that turned out to be wrong. She told me the day for my court date but didn't contact me to tell me what time or which courtroom, despite my phone calls trying to get an answer. I had to call my (now) ex-husband to ask him for the details, which was more than a little embarrassing.
