most awesomely thorough lawyer you can get
Greg is the best lawyer I have ever consulted in my whole life. He grasped my legal malpractice case immediately and diligently,conscientiously, comprehensively gave me all my options. I saw Greg give me his best every time I consulted him about my legal malpractice case.

Legal Malpractice Case
Mr. Janks is an incredibly competent, responsive, and knowledgable attorney. He alleviated all my fears while keeping me updated on all proceedings and possible outcomes in an expedited manner. This allowed me the autonomy to make the best decisions based on those outcomes. I trusted his knowledge and expertise. There were nights I would send or receive an email and he responded almost immediately. Any time I had to contact him via telephone, he was almost always available and if he wasn't, would get back to me as soon as possible. I never had to wait for his response to any of my questions. Mr. Janks was patient when he needed to explain the legal proceedings and allowed me the privilege of asking any question without judgement. He utilized very knowledgable and unbiased expert witnesses that uncovered areas in my case that I was not aware were jeopardized in my prior legal case. I was able to witness Mr. Janks in the courtroom during motions filed early in the process. He conducted himself in the utmost professional manner and utilized his knowledge to keep the defense from having the case thrown out. I would highly recommend Mr. Gregory Janks for any legal malpractice case. Mr. Janks personally changed my opinion of the legal system; an opinion that up to meeting him had been poor, to say the least.

Online advice question
This was just one question, but he responded quickly and seemed knowledgeable on this topic. He gave enough details to let me know that I wasn't obliged to pay for online advice I didn't agree to and why.
