OVERVIEW & EXPERIENCE

Janet is an Associate with Kohrman Jackson & Krantz. Janet guides clients in Northeast Ohio through what are often emotionally-charged legal matters, including divorce, dissolution, child custody, and juvenile court proceedings involving unwed parents.

Janet brings compassion and empathy to her legal work. With every client, her overarching goal remains the same: to help the client navigate to their new normal. Janet always patiently strives to bring her clients a sense of understanding and comfort as it relates to what can seem like a complex and daunting process that has real life, day-to-day implications.

Outside of the office, Janet enjoys spending time with her family and her two cats, Telemachus and Eurydice, gardening, and cheering on her beloved Ohio State Buckeyes.
