Marty Johnson represented me in a matrimonial case for 18 months. This was a very challenging case which required a lawyer with vast experience and a solid understanding of matrimonial law. Marty was able to guide me through the legal issues of the case and consistently afforded me direct and clear answers to the questions I posed throughout the process. I felt very comfortable relying on his advice knowing it was well founded in the law and that I was deriving the benefit of his many years of experience in the field. His advice consistently centered around what was best for me and my children and at all times Marty sought an expeditious and fair resolution to the case. The ultimate resolution to the matter reinforced the fact that the advice provided along the way was on point each step of the way. Representation by Marty Johnson meant that I could focus on and concern myself with a resolution to the case. Not having to worry about my representation was a huge advantage and a burden I did not have to concern myself with. Without hesitation I will continue to recommend and refer clients to Marty Johnson.

Mr. Johnson helped me through a difficult divorce that went to trial. He is an experienced and knowledgeable attorney who gets right to the important issues. Other lawyers sometimes get caught up in trivial points that waste both time and money. He did an excellent job in prepping me for my trial.
There was a fair settlement at the conclusion of the trial thanks to Mr. Johnson.

I WAS IN A CUSTODY BATTLE FOR MY SON. HIS MOTHER HAS HAD ME ARRESTED NUMEROUS TIMES ON FAKE CHARGES. WHEN MR JOHNSON TOOK MY CASE,I HAD A MEETING WITH HIM IN HIS OFFICE. WHEN I SAW HOW PROFESSIONAL,AND DETAILED HE WAS,I KNEW RIGHT THERE AND THEN,HE WAS THE LAWYER I NEEDED. WHEN WE WENT TO TRIAL,HE WAS A TRUE PROFESSIONAL. HE WAS SO DETAILED AND ORGANIZED IT WAS LIKE WATCHING A SURGEON. AND HIS PRESENCE IN THE COURT ROOM WAS AMAZING.YOU KNEW THE MINUTE HE SPOKE WHO WAS IN CONTROL..AND I WASNT SURPRISED AT ALL WHEN HE WON THE CASE. IF YOU ARE GOING TO PAY A LAWYER ,YOU MIGHT AS WELL PAY THE BEST.WIN OR LOOSE HE IS WORTH EVERY PENNY..

Mr. Johnson was recommended to me by an attorney friend. He was highly recommended and thought to be the "best" in Rockland County. I had been through the Family Court system of Rockland County with another attorney and was disappointed. It took a long time to find someone who I could trust to do the right thing for me and my son. Mr. Johnson proved to be the "best". He was admired in the Court Room by everyone he came in contact with. He is a shining star and dedicated attorney. Mr. Johnson is a highly respected and competent attorney whose confidence and outstanding knowledge of family law was proven by the results he achieved in the handling of my case. During a custody proceeding there are so many emotions the client experiences and having the skill and expertise of a successful experienced attorney is so important. He was there for me every step of the way and I am so grateful that I chose this outstanding attorney. He is simply "THE BEST"! I would highly recommend Mr. Johnson.

I worked with Marty through my divorce. He is extremely knowledgeable, moves quickly and lays out your options in simple terms. He helped me make hard decisions at a very difficult time. Having him on my side reduced the stress. I highly recommend him.
Posted by a Child Custody client,
We called a family friend who worked in the Family Court for over 25 years and asked her who, in her opinion, was the best attorney with respect to child custody/relocation matters. She replied, "Hands down, it's Martin Johnson."
Despite our best efforts to reach a settlement out of court, the matter was set down for trial. During the trial, I witnessed up close and personal, the caliber and integrity of Martin Johnson and his legal expertise. He continually maintained a code of ethics and standards during the trial. He successfully challenged the credibility of witness testimony and stated the facts in evidence clearly and precisely. Whether it was on direct, cross examination or re-direct, Marty maintained his professional demeanor. Furthermore, he exuded confidence without arrogance in his conveyance of the facts at every proceeding.
Throughout the long and tedious legal process, Marty kept me apprised and discussed with me the legalities and proper courses of action to specific situations as they arose at various times during the proceedings.
You roll the dice taking matters to court and leave your fate in the hands of the justice system because you never know how the Court will rule. Courts do not rule with their heart. Courts rule based on facts in evidence and witness testimony. Through Marty's professionalism and litigation of the facts, we received the best possible outcome for my children and me. I put my faith in Marty and he renewed my faith in attorneys and the justice system.
Marty is deserving of every accolade stated in this review and more. Divorce and custody battles are emotional roller coasters and I am proud to say that I had Martin Johnson in my corner every step of the way.
A gentleman and a scholar . . . If you're looking for the best attorney to represent you, "hands down, it's Martin Johnson."

Mr. Johnson was well informed and gave me the courage to do what was right for my family.

Nothing tops experience, and Mr. Johnson has been there some 25+ years. Confident without coming across arrogant, Current and in-tune without being lofty. Good listener.
After it was over, my ex-wife commented how professional he was in comparison to the lawyer she chose.
Posted by Greg, a Prenuptials client,
Martin Johnson is the most highly regarded marital attorney in lower New York State. His expertise and experience make him far superior to any other marital attorneys. Every time I went to court, other lawyers would always come up to me and say, "is Marty your attorney?" When I said "yes," they would say, "you have the best there is." Marty is very honest with his billings, and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Marty as a marital attorney. He is simply the best.

Simply said, Martin Johnson is the best matrimonial attorney in Rockland County.
When I needed a matrimonial lawyer, I spoke to 15 attorneys and asked each of them to list the top three matrimonial attorneys in the county. All 15 attorneys listed Martin Johnson in their top three; most of whom listed him as their top choice.
Martin represented me for more than two years. Martin is a scholar of matrimonial law. He is the lawyer that other lawyers turn to when they have a question about matrimonial law. He has an incredible eye for detail. He remembers everything anybody says to him and is incredibly eloquent in a court room.
Martin is also an expert statistician. He routinely suggested alternative strategies, ask for my participation, communicated honestly the risks and benefits of our alternative approaches.
With each phase of our defense, he asked good questions, He always left me confident that I had selected the right attorney.
Over the past two years, for better or worse, I have had the opportunity to get to know Martin well. When you are in trouble, Martin Johnson is the kind of attorney and advocate that you want in your corner.
Through my experience, I have learned that your likelihood of a positive outcome is not only based on the quality of your case and your willingness to participate in the process, but it is, at least, of equal importance to have the best attorney possible.
Without hesitation, I can assure you that Martin Johnson is the finest choice for matrimonial law....hands down.
