I was a young single mother with a 3 year old. I was broken down and lost due to a previous Attorney that I had hired, who took me for over $25,000 and tried to get my mother to sign over her house in order to continue my case but had accomplished 0 in 6 weeks time. I was facing my ex, who was much older than me, and more financially stable. By luck, I came across Mrs. Daniele Johnson, she worked with me every step of the way. Being my ex was doing well for himself financially, every time he thought he had a chance to take me to court for full custody, he did. He never won, the only accomplishment he made was that we had joint physical custody, and he had his child support reduced by $25.00/month. That was the only reason he continued to take me back to court, he wanted his child support reduced or dismissed.
Mrs. Daniele Johnson could see through his BS regardless of the fake facade he put up to make himself look innocent and truly engaged in his child's life. Mrs. Johnson made sure she exposed the truth in front of any Judges or court officials. I have been working with Mrs. Johnson for 13 years now. We've been through about 6+ hearings together. Every time I have watched her in action I have been impressed. From day one in 2002 to now, she continuously amazes me with her knowledge, growth, understanding, and strength.
As of today, I have custody and child support was increased. My child is now 16 years old. That totally involved, caring parent, that was 100% dedicated to his child, to this day has not spoken to our child. And he refuses to even see his child. Thanks to Mrs. Daniele Johnson she helped me prove to the courts his true colors.

I found Mrs Johnson through my company prepaid legal service. When I met her I wad excited at first because she talked a good game and sounded like she knew her stuff. However, when the case started my expectations went down hill as she would wait until the day of court to touch basis with me. She didn't prepare me on a strategy to win this case but would tell me that there is a chance I could lose my daughter, she said it was happening more and more in Fulton County and it almost seemed like she was preparing me to lose the case because she gave it little to no effort. When we went to court for the first time and I saw how little respect Fulton County judges had for her I was floored! It even hurt me and my daughter at first because my daughter's father got mother's day and two weeks in the summer even though he disappeared from my daughter's life and even in the face of the fact that my daughter never spent one night alone with him in 13 years!
The kicker was when I found out word for word she was discussing me with the other side and speaking negatively about me when I was her client!

What I would like to say first is I'm writing this before I know the outcome of our Trial that was 3 days ago. I want to do this to better show my sincerity, honesty, and thought behind this review that Mrs. Johnson deserves. There is not enough space here to talk about our situation so I will shorten this to hope you can visualize what she had to do for us. We live in MI and have custody of my stepson and have been pending trial for almost a year 1/2 through Fulton county. We had a lawyer abandon this case and not show up for hearings in which caused absolute madness! It can't be described in words what this caused. What happened is after a year 1/2 of preparing for trial stacks of evidence ect. None of this can now be used due to previous attorney not showing to hearing and submitting required forms and things.
Needless to say 1 day before pre trial I call Mrs. Johnson in a extreme panic explaining what has happened and she just listened and was calm and told me that she will go to pre trial Monday and Fix it! I said how? The attorney didn't show up last hearing and we can't do this and that. She just said I will take care of it. That she did. Being in MI no chance to plan we did not even need to attend the pre trial. What we did find out is it was impossible to fix the not using documents in Trial due to previous Attorney negligence. Nothing could be done to change this it was the law. A couple more bumps in the road, they schedule a trial during our vacation 1 month later. Somehow Mrs. Johnson was able to get the other attorney to agree to change the date???? Preparing was amazing never missed a step! Not a question! I was so impressed of the way that Mrs. Johnson works. I didn't understand going through the process until I recieved a list from her of questions and she was questioning me like I was on the stand. Mrs. Johnson has a strategy and style that is just thorough and professional and makes you feel so confident and comfortable.
Trial day for me I was great! For Mrs. Johnson I didn't forget the fact that she was not able to use or produce any documents in court that day. However trial day showed me my instincts were correct when I had to make a choice of which attorney to hire and take another chance on. The way she handled every person with respect and the way that evidence was cleverly still used to be seen throughout trial not submitted but seen, and how every objection was re worded so quickly and the same answer was still achieved so quickly without a second thought or frustration. That was truly amazing to me.
Most important to me was before anyone of us went on stand she said I have done this for 17 years and this Judge has been on the stand for many years, whatever you do you tell the truth. If you don't I will know and so will the Judge. I respect Mrs. Johnson so much for that. If you have a family custody case and you are looking for a attorney please trust me when I say Mrs. Johnson was worth every penny I have.
I will update with the outcome of Trial when we find out. Thank you Mrs. Johnson for cleaning up over a years mess in just a couple weeks!

It was a pleasure working with Daniele. She guided me through my divorce and maintained her professionalism, though I was on an emotional roller coaster. Daniele is practical and really works hard to provide sound advice in an economically feasible manner. In my case, she provided guidance on ways to minimize cost but reach my desired result. Daniele was responsive to errors that needed to be corrected in a timely manner and was available when I needed her assistance. I would recommend her legal services.

I needed help in my custody dispute with my sons' mother and I hired Daniele. She was very knowledgeable and thorough. I am very happy with the outcome as she got a lot more than I expected done for me. I had a great experience working with her and I will recommend to anyone needing a family attorney. Thanks Daniele

Ms Johnson took on my very unique & challenging case. She never told me we would win everything. When I had to make tough decisions she was honest and clear about my options. When we won portions of the case we celebrated, when we lost she provided clear guidance on next steps. I could not have asked for a better legal team on my side. I am grateful for the time and attention given to my case.

Ms. Johnson is truly a warrior in my book. She took on my case when no other lawyer in Atlanta would. Along with her knowledge and tenacity she brought justice to my situation. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a lawyer with integrity!
Great job and keep up the good work!

Daniele helped me fix my divorce settlement that I tried to do myself. I really can't say anything bad about her. She is very professional and patient and I really felt like I had someone in my corner.

I first walked into Ms. Johnson’s office when I was 4 months pregnant with my first baby and scared to death of what laid ahead. My ex made every attempt to bully, manipulate, control and dictate my prenatal appointments and the eventual custody arrangement of my son since 6 weeks into my pregnancy. He made demands centered around his interest with no regard for my rights and no room for boundaries. Without knowing where else to turn I took one small step with a phone call to the domestic violence hotline. That led me to free counseling in my county and that therapist directed me to Ms. Johnson. Through the confusion and fear of exiting an abusive relationship and the fog of pregnancy I kept the words of the therapist in the back of my head and recited them to myself often "Daniele will take care of you". Those words provided one of the few sources of comfort I could muster during a very difficult time. Since that day, almost two years ago, Ms. Johnson has fought continuously for my case. Her Guardian Ad Litem background and parental instincts was spot on throughout the process. There were many layers to my complicated case including a list of over 20 witnesses. At the center of all this mess I had a precious baby boy to protect. Ms. Johnson never lost sight of who her real client was. I was fighting for my son and she fought for us. There are 2 qualities about Ms. Johnson that stand out above the rest (1) her trustworthiness. I permitted her to handle my affairs with my minimal involvement during the final stage of pregnancy and first few weeks home from the hospital (2) she does not allow herself or her clients to be bullied. When my son's fathers behavior began to escalate during my initial attempts at visitation she kept a finger on the pulse of my struggles and helped me establish healthy boundaries which my ex never did respect. She recognized I had truly tried my best and continuing that pattern would have been enabling the very abuse I fought to escape.
Ultimately my ex voluntarily withdrew his petition to legitimate. Despite the momentary relief, Ms. Johnson was vigorous in thinking ahead and strategically taking action to establish a record trail and lay the ground work should a future need arise to protect my interest again.

There are not enough words to describe Attorney Johnson. She is a great lawyer and provides exceptional service. She is a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom. She handled my divorce with care, kept me updated on a weekly basis, and provided me with support throughout the divorce. I was only looking for child support and a vehicle. When the divorce was finalized I was granted 2 vehicles, 53,000 in back Child support, and my current child support doubled!! This was a hard process for me and I couldn't have done it without Attorney Johnson!! She is the best!!
