  • Rackham Karlsson

    Attorney Johnson was involved in a very complicated, high-stakes divorce in which I was part of a team representing the husband, a finance professional. Her skills and expertise were indispensable, particularly when it came to e-discovery issues that were central to the case. She is sure to be a valuable asset in any case.
