Russ Janklow Inducted into Trial Masters 

Trial Masters has the pleasure of announcing that Russ Janklow of Janklow Law Firm has been inducted as a charter member. Trial Masters is one of the most objective and exclusive accreditations a trial lawyer in the United States can receive. Membership is strictly limited to attorneys who have tried to verdict 35 or more trials in their career. 

Russ Janklow practices in Sioux Falls, SD, and has been trying cases for clients for years. Although there are Trial Masters members in all 50 states and Washington D.C, fewer than 1/2 of 1 percent of U.S. lawyers are members. Trial Masters membership acknowledges a rare advocate that is consistently willing to take their clients' cases to the courthouse.

Please see for further details concerning membership qualifications and a roster of the membership.

Congratulations to Russ Janklow on being inducted as a Life Member of Trial Masters in recognition of his significant trial experience.

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.

Lawyers from Johnson, Janklow, and Abdallah regularly participate in legal education by judging intramural student skills competitions; helping prepare our nationally competitive litigation skills teams; serving or leading the South Dakota State Bar's Law School Committee; and, from time to time , providing guest lecturers. The Law School is grateful for the generous participation of lawyers like those from Johnson, Janklow, and Abdallah.
