About me

For over thirty years, Mr. Janoff has been representing only injured persons. He has worked tirelessly for clients injured in motor vehicle accidents, by defective products, dog bites and unsafe premises. He has also helped clients who have been the victim of bad faith insurance practices, medical malpractice as well as harassment in the workplace. Often injury can result from unseen dangers such as airborne toxins like mold. Mr. Janoff is one of the few personal injury attorneys willing to take on these tough cases for clients who have become ill due to mold infestation. Mr. Janoff is well known and respected in the legal community for his relentless pursuit of justice and fair compensation for his clients.
