Janet is rated as a Leading Silk (Band 1) in both the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners legal directories. Janet undertakes arbitrations (in both children and financial cases) in addition to other forms of dispute resolution and is a trainer on IFLA training courses for family law arbitrators. She also sits part-time as a Judge, in both civil and family cases.

Janet has experience over many years of conducting the most complex care cases, for local authorities, parents and guardians. Many of her cases involve the death of young children, where the issue for the court is how the child died and whether the death was from a natural or organic cause or resulted from non-accidental injury. In the long-running Poppi Worthington case, Janet was instructed on behalf of the older siblings.

Janet also undertakes all types of private law children work. Cases include all forms of dispute regarding arrangements for children, including internal and international relocation, specific issues regarding schooling and issues which arise where parents are unable to agree about their child receiving medical treatment. Other cases involve private adoption and issues concerning modern families, such as surrogacy.

She also undertakes a broad range of family finance work and acts in financial proceedings following divorce, applications under Schedule 1 of the Children Act 1989 often in circumstances in which there are concurrent proceedings relating to children or parties wish to have continuity of counsel. Janet is noted for her sensible approach and ability to settle cases on terms favourable to her lay clients. Her skills as an arbitrator in financial cases are considered to transfer well to court work in this field. In 2016, as an invited member of a Law Commission Committee, Janet was involved in advising the Government on the enforcement of family finance orders, resulting in proposals for reform of the law in this area.
