A Skilled And Experienced Team
Handling Straightforward And Complex Cases

About Our Firm

Whether you’re a plaintiff or defendant, a petitioner or respondent, legal conflicts always bring stress. Our legal system can make former spouses, business partners or customers into adversaries.

With all of that going on, the last thing you need as a client are attorneys who pass you off to associate staff members or who don’t seem to understand your goals. Engels-Janzen, composed of attorneys Christopher Engels and Sean Janzen, emphasizes providing compassionate service to clients that is also characterized by diligence and the aggressive pursuit of your best interests.

A Legal Staff With Business And Courtroom Experience

Both of our attorneys bring real-life experience to the practice of law. Chris worked as a construction contractor for 25 years before attending law school. In that position, he learned the complexities of dealing with construction regulations and safety procedures, employees, vendors, clients, insurance issues and much more. He’s also been divorced, so family law matters aren’t abstractions to him, either.

Sean Janzen spent many years working for a larger firm and building his skills in civil litigation. He has represented clients at the state, federal and appellate levels. His ability to craft positive outcomes in business-focused lawsuits is exceptional.

Kind But Tough Family Law Advocates

All family law cases are unique, but some – including divorce – are especially sensitive, particularly when children are involved. The attorneys at our firm will discuss your situation and help you determine if a negotiated or uncontested divorce settlement is a possibility. These options can reduce stress on both parents and kids and pave the path for successful co-parenting. If litigation is necessary, you’ll need a compassionate but aggressive attorney on your side to fight for you. Our firm can provide those attorneys, who will champion your interests while providing you with frank opinions on how your case may play out in court.
