Why I Created an Agricultural Law Firm

Growing up on a farm taught me certain values—hard work, ingenuity, and independence. Hard work means you stay in the field until late at night because a storm is coming.  Ingenuity means you figure out how to fix a machine by yourself when you are miles from home. Independence means personal responsibility. After years of practicing law, these values drove me to start a new law firm centered around my passion--agriculture. That is why I founded Janzen Agricultural Law LLC.
