    • I recommend Anthony Van Johnson.

    Mr Van Johnson was by far the best attorney for my case. My case was handled carefully in Gwinnett County. I was explained step by step how the process would go. Not only was Mr. Van Johnson extremely professional he started my case with little to no money that i had without hesitation. I thank you Mr. Van Johnson for being patient with me and delivering the outcome that you said you would. If i only could say one thing about Mr Van Johnson it would be that he stands by his word!!!! If you looking for a great attorney look no further.

    • I do not recommend Anthony Van Johnson.

    I hired Mr. Van Johnson to help my husband in a child support case. He showed up to court to help represent him but did not make it on time. My husband was sent to jail for failure to pay support (due to financial inability) , but we were able to get him out on a purge. Mr. Van Johnson then informed us that we needed to file for a legitimation case, which we pursued and hired Mr. Van Johnson to represent him on that case. We never saw a court day. Mr. Van Johnson withdrew from the case the day before my husband was due in court to get his rights for his older daughter his secretary simply emailed us and told us the case was being postponed. I had to call the judge's office and the courts to find out every aspect of the case because he never responded to emails, his assistant didn't seem to ever know anything or call us back and the messages to his answering service always went ignored. He seemed very willing to help in the beginning when initially hired, but to leave a client hanging the day before court without any prior notice or explanation was so unprofessional in my opinion. We are now in search of a substitute counsel after having extinguished most of our savings to hire Mr. Van Johnson. We did, by the way, receive a motion to withdraw a week later.

      Lawyer Comment:

      Unfortunately, I am not able to go into the specific details about this case. However, It is very difficult to achieve desired results if (1) an individual chooses to represent himself until it's too late and the judge has already issued a ruling, and (2) if the legal fees are not paid for the desired representation. Throughout my years of practice I have always offered reasonable fees and have allowed clients to make partial payments. However, in civil cases there are expenses such as filing fees and Sheriff's fees that can quickly add up (especially if multiple attempts must be made to serve a party). And for these reasons, Attorneys are not able to continue offering representation if the fees cannot be paid.

    Attorney VanJohnson faced an uphill battle with my son's charges which resulted from addiction. Although my son has been in recovery for over a year, he had several charges against him from the time prior to his rehabilitation. Attorney VanJohnson has defended my son against 3 separate charges now, and particularly in the last instance, avoided a continuous jail sentence which would have resulted in my son losing his job.
    Anthony has always been professional and given us comfort and confidence no matter how bad the circumstances. He is tenacious in reaching the best possible agreement with the court for the benefit of the defendant. He has the ability to get right to the point of any legal issues. He has patiently answered any questions I have had regarding court actions. We are continuing to take advantage of his services for divorce agreement issues.
    I recommend Anthony to anyone facing difficult charges or just looking to modify an agreement. He's the best!

    • I recommend Anthony Van Johnson.

    Attorney VanJohnson represented a family member of mine facing serious charges. On our family member court date Attorney VanJohnson was prompt and conducted business on behalf of our family. He was very swift with his presentation , direct and professional. Many defendants who were present that day in court ; attorneys were no shows and some defendant attorneys were late leaving their clients to defend for themselves with the courts. I was appalled that an attorney would do such thing to their clients.
    Our family was very grateful for the presence ,promptness, professionalism and most of all the outcome attorney VanJohnson was able to get for our family member. Attorney VanJohnson was so impressive that defendants in the court room and defendants family members who had an attorney to represent them noticed the care and work of Mr. VanJohnson and requested his contact information for legal representation for themselves right there in the courtroom! (He captured their attention.)
    This speaks volume of what clients are looking for. Great results, care, professionalism, presence and promptness of an attorney. We received the full package with attorney VanJohnson and others noticed it as well.
    Sincerely,
    T.M.

    • I do not recommend Anthony Van Johnson.

    I paid him $1,800 in advance to appeal my divorce judgement. He, instead, scheduled a new trial. I told him two months before the hearing, I only wanted him the address the divorce judgement. If he disagreed with me, he could have returned my money and withdrew from the case. He never answered my email. Two weeks before the hearing, I asked him to request a postponement. When I had not heard from him, I called him the day before the hearing. He never requested the postponement. It was then he informed me the hearing was still scheduled. Lost the case and this person refused the give me back my $1,800. The only thing he did was filing the case. He charged me $1,800 for less than one hour of work.

      Lawyer Comment:

      Unfortunately I am not able to discuss the facts of the case in this forum. I do, however, welcome feedback. Having practiced law for over 18 years representing thousands of satisfied clients in trial matters, the chances of success in a case increase dramatically when proper court procedure is followed. By doing so, one can have a reasonable expectation of desired results.
