Posted by Marjorie
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!!

This was a difficult case and I just wanted to say if you need an Attorney that really cares, this is your Lady. She is professional and experienced.

She was very helpful in explaining the details of my case. She was up front and honest with me about the likely outcomes. Kept me up to date with a pretty complicated paper trail and helped me to get to a resolution I could live with.

I first met Attorney Johnson in 2012 when she spoke at a womens retreat which I attended. I was moved by her compassion for women/families facing divorce. Her demeanor exuded confidence, strength, caring, trust, knowledge, and experience. At the time I was broken, afraid, and could not see the light at the end of the tunnel, but she assured me that it was there. Daniele was patient, considerate of my feelings, treated me with respect, she was always interested in knowing how my children (and my pets!) were doing in the midst of everything. She was not wasteful of my money nor my time, and kept me abreast of all activities regarding my case as we went along. She was supportive, a good listener, and always had my best interest at heart. She is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet, but dont let the smooth taste fool you because she can get down with the best of them; she is fearless, not easily intimidated, knows her stuff, and is a force to be reckoned with (she certainly made a believer out of my ex!) My divorce is now final and ended in my favor. I have not had any other dealings with the court system therefore I have no other attorneys to compare her to, but what I can say is that I entreated the Lord for an excellent attorney, and he blessed me with Daniele.

Almost a year ago, I was planning to leave my wife and I had just met yet another attorney. I work with a lot of attorneys in my professional life, and his advice just seemed a little "off-base". I had noticed Daniele's firm in a local directory shortly afterward, and decided to call and schedule a meeting with her. I am so glad I did!
I am in the employee benefits area, and working with Daniele is different than what I have experienced with many of the attorneys that I have worked with in the past. She has a very collaborative approach, and I really felt like she was working WITH me during the process. Daniele asked for my input, and more importantly, listened to what I had to say. She personally checked in with me periodically (her timing was always just right), and at one point, offered some really exceptional "non-legal/person-to-person" advice about my situation.
Daniele's practice is very flexible, and she (and her staff) seemed to handle changes effortlessly. For example, my wife decided that she really wanted to be served at home. It was the eleventh hour, and I asked Daniele whether that would be possible. She acted quickly, and somehow rearranged everything to make it happen!
Daniele's advice was always thoughtful and well-timed. Ultimately, my wife and I decided to work on our relationship, and not proceed with the divorce. I shared some of my lingering concerns with Daniele, and she suggested an extremely clever legal solution. Absolute perfection!!
Bottom Line: I know that hiring an attorney is an important decision, and I can confidently state that hiring Daniele was one of the best decisions that I have ever made!

Daniele did an amazing job! I have a very complicated guardianship/termination of parental rights case that has been going on for almost 5 years. She was able to assure guardianship even with us moving from one state to another. She also was able to terminate the Fathers parental rights which was extremely important due to his background. I had been told by previous lawyers that this would never be approved even with our overwhelming case for it. Daniele was amazing and was able to assure everything we had been fighting for for such a long time.
