I originally approached Ms. Boback's firm because as a father with older children I had gone through a custody battle before and realized that as a father it is tempting to try hiring the people who say they represent father's, write the books, and make it into the news, but the reality is that I didn't want to make a statement I wanted my son safe and preferably with me.
When you hire her you are hiring a team that has excellent relationships with the court, they have a great grasp of the law, and in the odd event that something happens to your attorney she transitions a temporary replacement or is even ready to step in herself if need be.
However I must stress to all people who are using an attorney for the first time. Make sure you are certain what your goals are, clearly express what you want to your attorney, communicate timely with your attorney, and listen to the advise that you are paying them for.
Too often I think people don't think what they want through entirely and couples that have broken up have broken up because of poor communication skills.
As a parent going through divorce or custody you should not expect your attorney to hold your hand, but you damned sure better make sure that you can communicate with your attorney better than you did your ex. If you are willing to be patient, listen to your attorneys advice, and lucky to find a team as competent as Janice's you have better chance than most.
This is one of the few attorneys I have met that I might support running for judge, but competent enough where I suspect that one day we will find her having built one of the largest smoothest running firms in the Midwest. I worked with Janice and three of her attorneys during this two year process and never failed to be impressed.

I found Jan through Avvo and I am so glad that I did. My divorce was a lengthy process with many intricacies yet Jan and her team made me feel as though my case was always a priority. I appreciated their attention to detail, their professionalism and their consistency. Great firm with a great team of attorneys!

I had been through 2 previous attorneys in my case that was approaching 3 years. I left both who were dumbfounded and ill-equipped to provide effective legal strategy and forward thinking. Thank God a good friend referred me to Jan who gave me confidence, stuck to our strategy, executed a direct gameplan and came out of a difficult situation with multiple victories. Definitely a must hire for you in your most difficult situations.

Janice is a fantastic family law attorney, and we refer quite a few of our good friends to her regularly. Janice has been practicing for year and does not ever get surprised in court. She knows the judges, she has a fantastic team, and she is always passionate about her clients.
