Amazing Service and Advice
Jana was extremely diligent in her approach and resolution to our issue. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a extremely competent and trusted partner for your needs.

Excellent!
Jana is a great lawyer. She works very hard to represent her clients needs directly. She kept me grounded during a very emotional time in my life and without her abilities I would have lost my case.

Jana Effertz - attorney work review
Jana is a very competent and capable attorney. Her work goes well beyond just the legal aspect of a case. Her ability to connect the life situational realities with legal issues is outstanding. I found her value as compared to final product to be exceptional. I would highly recommend her to most anyone based on her areas of practice expertise.

Unresponsive
Did not feel she presented the facts accurately nor was she fighting for the best interest of her client. Argumentative, did not return phone calls for weeks, secretary was unable to assist with questions. Did not keep me informed about the status of the case.
