South Dakota's Premier Litigation Firm

If you or one of your loved ones has been personally injured or damaged as a result of an accident, workplace injury, or wrongful death, you could suffer in silence, wondering if there is any possible way that you could get the justice you deserve. Or, you could call 605-338-4304 and talk with Scott Abdallah, Russ Janklow, or any members of our Johnson Janklow Abdallah, LLP, legal team.

There is no room for second best when it comes to protecting your rights in a litigation matter. Johnson Janklow Abdallah, LLP, is one of the most experienced law firms in the area of litigation in all of the Midwest. The firm is one of the few law firms in the state of South Dakota that devotes nearly 100 percent of its practice to litigation, trials and appeals. In fact, it is one of only seven law firms in South Dakota ranked highly recommended by Benchmark Litigation, a leading national publication covering America's leading business litigation firms.

As a longtime leader in the legal community, this is a law firm that is committed to providing the highest standard of representation to clients in all areas of litigation, including:

Your initial consultation with us is at no charge to you.  We are good listeners.  Nobody knows the facts of your case better than you.  If you share the facts with us, we’ll share the law with you.  If we think you have a case, we’ll tell you.  The law is complex; honesty is not. 

It Costs You No More to Hire the Most Experienced Lawyers

Russ Janklow and Scott Abdallah, along with our other team members, are able to accept many cases on a contingency basis, which means that you do not pay a legal fee unless your case is settled or won at trial. With a contingency agreement, it does not cost you any more to hire the most experienced attorneys possible because all attorneys' fees are simply a flat percentage of the recovery. Our commitment is to provide our clients with passionate and skilled legal representation and with that; we go the route that is best for you. 

It is great to work with the attorneys at Johnson, Janklow, and Abdallah. They always provide excellent advice and service that is second to none.
