Professional Summary

Janice Wolff currently defends wrongful death, personal injury and property damage cases arising out of many different types of claims, including premises liability, construction defects, automobile accidents, sexual torts and various other cases. She has an extensive jury-trial history (over 100 trials) and has successfully tried cases in both Texas and Oklahoma, holding bar licenses in each state. Janice is very skilled at preparing her cases and her clients for trial and truly enjoys being in the courtroom.

Before practicing in Dallas, Janice spent the first half of her career prosecuting criminal cases in west Texas, and then made the switch to the civil side of the bar. While in law school, she served as an appellate law clerk for the Lubbock County District Attorney, where she wrote appellate briefs and petitions for discretionary review. Upon graduation, she was immediately hired as a prosecutor in Lubbock. She continued her career as a felony prosecutor in Ector County before moving back to Dallas where she was born and raised, and attended Hillcrest High School.

In addition to her civil trial work, Janice also serves as a part-time Criminal District Court Magistrate for Dallas County, where she has served the citizens of Dallas County for over fifteen years. In this role, Janice is responsible for arraigning defendants, setting bonds, issuing emergency protective orders, reviewing and signing arrest and search warrants, and dealing with any other issues which arise on weekends and after regular court hours.

Community Activities & Personal
Janice enjoys swimming with Dallas Aquatics Masters where she trains regularly and has participated in various open-water races in Hawaii, the Cayman Islands and most recently, Australia.

She is currently the principal piccolo in the Plano Community Band and is the vice president of the board. She will be the president of the band during its 2018-2019 season when the band will be celebrating its 40th anniversary of performing free concerts.

Dubbed the “Salsa Queen” by friends and family, Janice’s famous salsas have earned several first- and second-place ribbons at the State Fair of Texas.
