Family Law with Empathy

Janice Roven has practiced law, specializing in litigation, for over thirty years. Then, over a decade ago, she had an experience that would become a defining moment for her; her family was involved in a highly contentious custody battle. Suddenly, Janice was no longer the attorney but the litigant.

Janice Roven is known for her sharp legal mind, her com- passionate heart and her communicative nature. She understands that divorce is one of the most challenging experiences a person will ever face and she strives to make the process as painless as possible. Ms. Roven addresses your issues and keeps you informed every step of the way.

With years of litigation experience, she comes to the table with tremendous skills in, both, litigation and negotiation. Janice graduated cum laude with honors in Political Science from Barnard College, Columbia University. She was elected to the Dean’s List and obtained her Juris Doctor at Emory University School of Law, where she successfully completed the National Institute of Trial Advocacy Program, receiving an LL.M. from Emory in the area of Litigation.
Janice Roven is fully committed to providing her clients with the personal attention they deserve. Experience, thoughtful representation and proficiency are the bywords of her legal practice.

“I will always remember saying to my attorneys, “…but you don’t understand.” And I vowed to never cause
my clients to say this to me. I am fully committed to providing my clients with the personal attention they deserve. Divorce is stressful. Your lawyer should strive to reduce that stress.

I know what it’s like to be on the other side of the desk. I understand what it’s like to be unable to be with my children over Rosh Hashanah or to spend time with my son on his birthday. I make sure that my clients understand the provisions of the agreement they sign. Few things are as life altering as a divorce. It affects every aspect of one’s life, including one’s own sense of self. Therefore, I know how crucial it is to help my clients gain control and to guide them through the turbulent waters that lie ahead. My goal is to obtain a resolution as quickly as possible, while keeping the focus on the needs of my client and any children involved.

The positive side of my difficult custody battle is that it made me a better listener and a better advocate.”
