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 of how 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 story below of how JJS delivered the justice and compensations the families desperately needed, as well as a few verdicts & settlements recovered by JJS.
