Sabra M. Janko
Former Army JAG attorney, originally enlisted and attended the Defense Language Institute for Russian language training.
Post-service, in the Hudson River Valley area of New York, I provided general practice civil legal services to veterans at the nonprofit association Legal Services of the Hudson Valley to include family law, landlord-tenant law, Chapter 7 bankruptcy, veterans benefits, and public benefits appeals providing advice and assistance as well as representation at civil and administrative hearings. After relocating to Colorado, I spent some time with the Colorado Bar Association and Metro Volunteer Lawyers handling access to justice and family law legal clinic matters.
Previously, while serving with the United States Army Judge Advocate General's Corps, I practiced in a variety of legal areas to include administrative and criminal law as well as legal services. I advised servicemembers, retirees and commanders on legal service matters to include divorce and family law, income tax, adverse action appeals and landlord-tenant matters to include running an income tax assistance center. I completed Army Airborne School and served in Iraq and Jordan during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn. My last military assignment was as an Assistant Professor at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York teaching constitutional and criminal law to cadets.
I have published articles in two law journals and a monograph with the American Bar Association in the area of mental disabilities and the law.
