"Top Notch, Professional, Intelligent and caring are just a few things that come to mind about Janine. I hired Janine to represent me when my ex wanted to take me back to court to reduce my child support and stop my alimony, not split his 401k and force me to sell our home. This was after being married for 25 years. I wish I had hired Janine at the beginning of the divorce, but I am so thankful I met her and hired her. (We initially decided to handle the divorce ourselves without lawyers, which was a big mistake). Janine truly saved me from being taken advantage of. She advised me every step of the way and was knowledgeable, caring and compassionate. Janine works nonstop for her clients and is a skilled negotiator. I've already recommended her to my friend, who also raves about her. Thank you, Janine!"

"I was referred to Janine Frisco by a friend. I'd already had two attorneys who had not represented me well and I found myself in a terrible situation. My friend told me that Janine was the lawyer to have after other lawyers fail. In working with Janine I found this to be true. She worked tirelessly on my case and was available to me when I needed her. We communicated often and she was very honest with me. She did not promise me that things could be changed, but she certainly came through for me. She cared about me and my daughter and told me what I needed to hear. I would highly recommend Janine. She is confident, realistic and compassionate."


"Janine is an excellent attorney who handled my divorce case with the utmost care, diligence, and professionalism. Her experience and expertise speak for themselves as she made sure my interests were protected as much as possible. I recommend Janine to anyone who is in need of a family attorney."
