Further evaluation is based on education, case outcomes, trial experience, formal training and published works, as well as client and peer reviews.

This prestigious distinction recognizes Attorney Janklow’s mastery in the personal injury practice area.  Licensed for over 25 years, Russ Janklow focuses his practice on personal injury law and has the professional credentials and recognition of his peers to earn him multiple national publications.
