Janet is exceptionally passionate about helping those in need. Many of my clients are indigent and on the verge of homelessness, and if they have questions about bankruptcy law, I always refer them to Janet. My clients have told me how helpful, knowledgeable, and caring she is; they feel comfortable talking to her about their finances and all of their options for relief and a fresh start. Janet can often be found volunteering her time giving pro bono legal advice to people in our community who really need guidance. Her passion to help others is contagious and commendable. I would highly recommend Janet Ziulkowski to anyone in need of advice regarding a bankruptcy or family law matter.
From the beginning of the divorce case she represented me on, everything was a struggle. What started off to be a very amicable situation between my former husband and I, turned into a full-blown fight because she was more interested in putting in unnecessary research than to just do what I wanted. Her interest in how she was perceived by her peers far outweighed how well she performed in doing what her client needed and wanted.
My husband and I interviewed several lawyers to handle our bankruptcy case. We wanted the best and we found her. Janet thoroughly reviewed our information and gave us sound advice. Both she and her staff were very responsive to our questions and concerns. She even helped us with our mortgage modification when the mortgage company refused to honor it. She made them stand by their agreement. She saved our home and our future. I have referred her to several friends and they have all been very happy with her services.
My husband and I went to Sterling Bankruptcy because we were desperate for advice and confused about our situation. I saw a commercial for the practice and decided to call for an appointment. We met with Janet and immediatly felt connected with her over the other lawyers we talked with. She was caring and professional at the same time.
Our bankruptcy went smoothly but unfortunatly a year later we were back in her office facing a foreclosure because of job loss. Janet had told us to walk away from our home during the bankruptcy, but we went against her advice and kept it. I wish now we would have listened. When we ended back at her office we were once agian given solid advice. We feel that Janet has given us a second chance, and hope that after the foreclosure is finished we will be able to move on in the next step of our life.
