Former Client
Ms. Janicki was always professional and listened to my concerns and fears regarding my case. She was patient and took the time to explain all the possible outcomes, whether favorable or unfavorable. She had a strategy no matter what direction the Court may have taken. She was diligent in representation and when the other side did not follow court orders or pushed back too hard, she was right there filing and arguing. She never missed a beat. She commands the Court room and will zealously fight for you. She fought for me when I thought I couldn't fight anymore and wanted to give up. Ms. Janicki and her partner are knowledgeable, professional, and aggressive attorneys ready for anything the Court or the other side throws at you.

Bulldog of a lawyer
As an attorney myself and having had worked with Magda personally I can attest to the fact that she is a tenacious litigator who truly fights for her clients. I recently hired her myself for a civil matter and she is currently diligently working on my case and is always in constant communication with me regarding the status of it. If you want an honest and hardworking attorney who actually listens and cares about your case and situation and fights tooth and nail for you hire Magda Janicki!

SUPERB ATTORNEY
Magda is one of the BEST attorneys in town, and I have worked with quite a few. I have worked with her on numerous cases, and I have seen her obliterate her opponents case, arguments, and motions. She is a masterful litigator and trial attorney. She is reputable and well respected attorney amongst her peers and in the community.

Attorney with significant litigation experience
I had an opportunity to work with Magda Janicki for the past 5 years. Her attentional to detail, work ethic and dedication to her clients impressed me. I would highly recommend her. She has experience in litigating complex legal issues and has trial experience in homicide and punishable by life offenses.

Easy to work with and responsive
I was referred to Magda by a close friend - over the course of working with her, she was always very professional. She took the time to thoroughly review and explain our options and walked us through the legal process. Would definitely recommend her!

Lawyer Abandoned Case
NEVER USE THIS LAWYER! She takes her client's money, makes all kinds of promises and then disappears and doesn't respond. She couldn't make it financially on her own, so she abandoned all her clients! She doesn't even show up for court dates and the judge has to call her. She may have been good in the past, but she is your worst choice now...
