Janelle M. Carney is the Managing Partner for the Spokane and Tri Cities offices of GLP Attorneys. Janelle has a background in insurance, and it was this experience that led her to believe that representing plaintiffs was her true passion. She understood the importance of advocating for those that were unable to advocate for themselves. 

She prides herself on her compassion for her clients and working on every case to the best of her ability, whether large or small. 

Janelle is passionate about insurance and doing everything she can to make sure they do the right thing. She was the Spokane moderator of the 2014 Insurance Law Seminar on the Insurance Fair Conduct Act. She also presented at the 2015 Insurance Law Seminar as a guest speaker on Personal Injury Protection.

She has been awarded the 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 Rising Star Super Lawyers Award, which is awarded to the top 2.5% of attorneys in the state. She has also been awarded the National Top 100 Trial Lawyers Award. In 2017, Janelle was granted membership into the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Becoming a member is a major accomplishment that a very small percentage of attorneys achieve. Janelle was awarded as one of Spokane/Coeur D’Alene’s Top Lawyers in 2014 and 2015.

Successful Cases:

$1,800,000 for the parents of a young 6 month old who tragically died in a motor vehicle collision.

$1,100,000 settlement for an elderly woman who was assaulted while living in an assisted living facility.

$1,000,000 for the victim of a head on collision resulting in permanent hip and leg injuries. 

$575,000 result for man involved in T-Bone collision, who suffered severe back and neck injuries.

$575,000 for the victim of a rear end collision resulting in a total knee arthroplasty and neck injury.

$400,000 policy limits settlement for man involved in motorcycle accident, who suffered severe shoulder and thumb injuries.

$250,000 result for woman involved in two separate slip-and-fall incidents, who sustained severe wrist injuries on both accounts.

$162,500 result for woman who sustained two separate dog bite injuries while working as a pet groomer.

Policy limits settlement after a GLP client’s insurance agent misrepresented the amount of coverage and tried to settle the case for $8,000. Janelle took over representation of the client, and found that the client’s insurance agent claimed that there was only $30,000 in uninsured motorist coverage, when actually there was a total of $110,000. The case was later settled for the full $110,000.

Policy limits settlement for a 73 year-old mechanic from Wenatchee, who because of the injuries sustained in a car accident, was forced to close his business. The client had sustained a significant shoulder injury and had to undergo surgery.  He came to GLP frustrated as his insurance company refused to pay for his wage loss or his medical bills.  The insurance company fought every step of the way but ultimately paid the full policy limits available, including the PIP coverage as well as the full UIM coverage.
