After graduating cum laude from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington with a B.A. in just under three years and earning her law degree from the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law at Campbell University, Janet began her professional law career with the Law Offices of Timothy C. Morris. Next she practiced with large scale tobacco litigation with the firm of Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice in Winston-Salem. She then joined the prestigious Rosen Law Firm the day before 9/11 in 2001. In 2007, Janet opened her own practice, Cape Fear Family Law, which continues to grow with hand-selected attorneys, paralegals, and assistants. In addition to being admitted to practice in North Carolina, she recently passed the bar exam in Florida.
Janet is one of only three Board Certified Family Law Specialists in the Tri-County area, which means she is certified by the State Bar for her special knowledge, skill and proficiency in family law. A lifelong learner, Janet likes to share her knowledge and insights at Continuing Legal Education conferences, free seminars for residents and in local schools.
Always in a hurry to get things done, Janet graduated cum laude from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in three years.
Somehow Janet managed to find time during those three years to participate in the North Carolina Student Legislature. When one of her bills was passed in the real North Carolina Legislature, however, there was nothing “student” about it!
Janet was selected in 1999 as one of a three person team to represent Campbell University School of Law at the National Christian Legal Society Conference.How would you like an internship where you watch the soldiers of the 82nd Airborne jump out of planes at Fort Bragg? Janet did exactly this. She also interned in a highly selective program in the United States District Attorney’s Office. How’s that for diverse?
Janet went the the prestigious Rosen Law Firm from Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice in Winston-Salem, and started to immediately contribute articles on divorce law to local publications, as well as the Rosen Law Firm website. In addition to relocating to her husband’s hometown of Wilmington (where she also gets to enjoy the beach and replay fond memories from college at UNCW), Janet continues to associate with the Rosen Law Firm and enjoys the great atmosphere their firm provides.
