Janko Predovic, Lawyer, Mediator

Collaborative Lawyer,
Family Law Mediator

Janko has represented clients in British Columbia’s Provincial and Supreme Courts on contested matters of child guardianship, parenting time, asset division, child support and spousal support. Early in his career, he saw that going to court can cause irreparable harm to families. He then immersed himself in the dispute resolution philosophy of Collaborative Divorce and Mediation. Janko believes that assisting families in a respectful, balanced manner preserves money, dignity and relationships.

Janko is a Member of the Law Society of British Columbia. He is an accredited Family Law Mediator and partakes in events of the Collaborative Divorce Group (Vancouver), among other Collaborative professional groups.

For the last three years, Janko also worked as a Mediator and Adjudicator with a branch of provincial government, helping resolve employment law disputes. In this role, he has conducted dozens of civil mediations between different employees and employers. His successful resolution rate (i.e. when both parties sign a voluntary settlement) was approximately 90%.

Janko leads innovation in British Columbia law reform as part of the Family Justice Innovation Lab (FJIL). The FJIL is a unique innovation platform for nurturing initiatives designed to improve resilience and well-being of families and children experiencing transition, including separation and divorce. It uses a systemic, human-centred design approach that puts families and children at the centre where they belong.

Janko attended Trinity College for his B.A. in Criminology. He attended the University of Sydney Law School for his Master’s degree in Criminology and his Bachelor of Laws degree.
