She provides trusted counsel, exacting documentation and clear communication to commercial banks, credit unions, institutional lenders, insurance companies and other lenders in a wide range of commercial and real estate financing matters.

A highly skilled attorney with extensive experience in analyzing transactions in the banking, corporate and real estate areas, Janet enjoys creating documents that reflect the exact intentions of the transaction, especially when the transaction is challenging and more unusual. With her comprehensive knowledge of all phases of a loan or credit transaction, she is able to chart the progress of a matter while explaining the technicalities and route to a successful closing.

Janet feels that the path to a successful transaction is through well-crafted documentation. In addition, she will always look ahead to consider what might be needed during the implementation process and any regulatory audits or exams that may arise. She takes pleasure in working with her clients to construct language that is clear, precise and transparent. She values listening to her clients and not only providing what they need at that moment, but thinking ahead, talking through the structure of a deal and smoothing over any troublesome issues.
