Jan R. Kowalski

About me

Seasoned litigator and compassionate parent.  I combine traditional litigation style with collaborative law mediation emphasis to create a winning combination for clients.  This saves clients time, money and aggravation and is more likely to lead to a positive result in terms of time and money.  I offer installment payment plans to make the process affordable and less stressful.
