stories of lives changed within CPFN
All of us have benefitted from the kindness of Janet, Janet & Suggs, LLC (JJS), as their founder, Howard Janet, partnered with CP families to create CPFN. Through their efforts, we have created friendships that will last a lifetime and been equipped with the wisdom to best care for our children.
In addition, JJS has fought for many of us, seeking justice and compensation when medical negligence was the cause of CP. A few of our families have shared their stories of how JJS delivered the justice and compensation their families desperately needed, as well as a few verdicts and settlements recovered by JJS.
