Claimed Lawyer ProfileResponsive Law

Steven Janiszewski has 33 years of litigation experience (over 400 cases), including criminal defense, commercial litigation, personal injury cases, and appeals of all stripes. In 2017, he left a large Denver firm, where his niches were commercial litigation and appeals, for fourteen years, to create Paladin Litigation--a low-overhead, modern law office [link:], to increase middle-class access to justice by providing unbundled services, including ghost writing, at flat rates—for those who cannot afford or do not want full representation—and Alternative Fee Arrangements, on a sliding scale, for those who want full-service representation.

Mormon by genealogy, Roman Catholic by adoption, secular humanist by education, Karma Kagyu by choice for twenty years, and finally saved by the Grace of God through Jesus Christ, Steven Janiszewski is Paladin. Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Steve got his B.A. in English from the University of Utah. Then, thinking that he could be a rich and famous novelist, he went back East, to Virginia, and took his Masters Degree in creative writing from Hollins. After returning to the Mountain West, Steve lost interest in fiction while mediating in Boulder, and took his J.D. from the University of Denver.
