Read about topics that Janice has written.
★★★★★ “When you hire her, you are hiring a team that has excellent relationships with the court[s] and a great grasp of the law. … I worked with Janice and three of her attorneys during this two year process and never failed to be impressed.” - Kelly
★★★★★ “When I had to choose an attorney to represent me in a very much contested divorce, my choice (after looking at and interviewing a number of attorneys) was [Janice] Boback. … She will find the best solution and try the cooperative approach. But when things get tough she can also be a fierce litigator and win your case at trial.” - Matt (Attorney)
★★★★★ “To say I highly recommend Jan would be an understatement. Extremely thorough and very knowledgeable, a pit bull in a skirt or pants suit depending on the day! I can tell you there are more bad attorneys than good in family law. Jan is at the top of the good ones” - Gerald
