We are experienced in handling even the most complex and sensitive cases for sexual abuse and medical malpractice victims in the New York City area, including:
The suffering of a child during birth creates emotional and physical hardships that can last a lifetime for the entire family.

A mismanaged pregnancy or labor can rob your child of their health and wellbeing. At JJS, we pride ourselves on representing families suffering from a child’s CP diagnosis. Our team includes a dedicated OB-GYN who can capture evidence to prove that your child’s condition was caused by medical negligence. Let us help you decide how best to move forward with your case.
If you or someone you love has been the victim of sexual abuse, assault or misconduct, you have recourse. As devoted advocates for survivors of sexual abuse, JJS is here to advocate on your behalf.

Our nationally recognized trial lawyers have helped thousands of survivors of sexual assault — including those affected by the misconduct of the Catholic Church clergy and those who protected them.

If you’ve been injured as the result of negligent medical care, you’re not alone. As the founding and managing partner of JJS, Howard Janet has led his firm to national recognition, recovering millions for victims across the United States.

Historically, active service members and their families have not been able to bring legal action against military doctors for malpractice cases. However, the SFC Richard Stayskal Military Medical Accountability Act has now made it possible for active duty members and their families to file a claim against negligent military healthcare providers. JJS stands with both veterans and active service members as they pursue justice against these medical professionals. Trust us to help you with the fight.
