Family
Sabra Janko handled my unusual and complicated divorce case in a most professional and knowledgeable manner. She understood my case from the beginning and was able to bring the case to a successful.She protected all my rights where I could not have been without her. No matter how trivial my questions,Ms. Sabra would answer them in timely manner either personally or by email. Her staff is second to none,especially paralegal,Hailey.Ms.Sabra guided me through the litigation, deposition, and ultimate conclusion of the case with poise, confidence and assurance which I needed during an emotionally charged time in my life. I would highly recommend Janko law firm and her diversified practice.

Prenuptial Agreement
Sabra provided an excellent service and big help for me as my lawyer for my prenuptial agreement. She gave me all information about it and suggested me the better way to negotiate on the agreement. My husband and I had a best decision we made on it. We really appreciate her help.

Goes Above and Beyond
Contacted Ms. Sabro concerning a mediation I was involved with. She eased my fears as well as making numerous telephone calls to make sure my disabilities were accommodated as well as helping me to understand the entire mediation process.

Great Lawyer
Sabra is very friendly, knowledgeable and great to work with. She completed my will in a very short time and she recognized that I was a veteran.

Lacking
My experience with Attorney Sabra Janko was highly unsatisfactory. Her disorganization was glaring, leading to a lack of confidence in her abilities. She demonstrated a concerning lack of knowledge regarding crucial aspects like veteran pay, notably the Military Housing Allowance. Moreover, her representation left me feeling unsupported; she failed to embody the role of a dedicated advocate for her client's best interests.

Response from Sabra Janko January 13, 2024
I absolutely disagree. If an attorney has to withdraw from a former client's case and take a former client to court for payment, then former clients often create reasons why they should not have to pay for services. There were no comments whatsoever regarding a dissatisfaction of service prior to payment being addressed.
