Janice’s practice is focused on litigation, particularly family law and civil litigation with an emphasis on insurance law. She regularly appears before the Superior Court of Justice and the Ontario Court of Justice to advocate for her clients. Janice can also be found at the Unified Family Courthouse in Hamilton assisting legally aided clients as per diem family Duty Counsel and the John Sopinka Courthouse where she is a per diem Crown Attorney.

While attending law school, she dedicated herself to volunteering at Windsor’s Community Legal Aid Clinic, representing low-income and vulnerable clients in the areas of provincial offences, criminal law and small claims matters. Janice had the opportunity to independently prepare for and advocate at trials prior to graduating law school. By her third year, she was promoted to a supervisor position where she mentored her own team of law students. She earned her Juris Doctor from the University of Windsor in 2017. She joined Sullivan Festeryga in 2018 as an Associate after completing her articles with the firm.

Janice enjoys being highly active and is an avid traveller. She is a weightlifter, snowboarder, and a retired breakdancer. She also plays volleyball, squash, and badminton.
