Janet Morris created Janet R. Morris, Esq. Elder Care Consulting in 2016 after working in elder care for over 30 years at Bet Tzedek Legal Services, a non-profit legal services corporation in Los Angeles.

Janet has imparted her knowledge and holistic approach to several generations of lawyers, paralegals, and social workers.
