I agree with all of the negative reviews. I hired Mrs. Corbin Johnson in 2007 and got the total runaround the entire time until she thought I owed her some more money which I didn't. I finally got so fed up that I stopped the proceedings but not without already having paid her about $1500.00 and my divorce still isn't final. I am so uneasy about trying another attorney after such a bad experience with her.
I would not recommend her to my worst enemy. She is extremely unorganized and shows up to every court appearance late. She is never on time and nor is she ever prepared for your case. However she is quick to ask you for money for court appearances. Those fees are $750 for each court appearance. Which does not include her fees for actually going to trial and incidentals. She does not do any leg work for your case. You generally have to do it all yourself. Seems as if you are just paying someone to show up to court in your behalf who isn't prepared and who could truly care less about your case. She hardly ever returns phone calls. You will always have to go through Ms. Greenway, who will never get your message correct. To get the status of your case is almost impossible. She seems to take on a lot clients, take their money and give them very little representation in return. Just enough to say she did something. And you get very little in return for what you paid for. If she would actually slow down and focus on a few cases at a time, she would be a great lawyer. She is knowledgeable. I will not take that away from her.
I hired Mrs Johnson to represent me in my divorce and support cases in July of 2011. The day of my support hearing I see her at the court house and she asks what I'm doing there. She was there for another case in a different court room. During a recess in that court she found her way to the court room I was in only to be called away a short time later. When she finally returned I was hit with child support of $956 a month and $300 a month alimony. After that she wanted me to pay her another $750 to appeal it. In our discussion on me not being able to afford that and survive she told me that I made over $60000 a year so she did not feel sorry for me. She (Mrs Johnson), my ex, and my ex's attorney got what they wanted. I lost my home of 16 years and my ex moved from the house she lived in, in Cordova (that she claimed she couldn't pay her bills at) to one twice that size in Oakland that cost $170,000+.
Attorney Corbin-Johnson has yet to return any of my phone calls (I've been trying to reach her since April). She did not make me aware of how she was handling my case, but continuously asked for money to pay for court appearances. She even had Ms. Greenlaw to contact me the day of and a few hours before one of my scheduled court dates. I am very disappointed as she came highly recommended by a good friend.
Does not return calls and does not show up for scheduled appointments. Very discouraging when you are going through legal issues.
This is my second time hiring Atty Felicia Johnson. I am quite pleased with the way she handles business. Atty Johnson is quite knowledgeable of the law. She goes that extra mile to help you out on any legal case you may have. Her fees are reasonable as she tells you up front what to expect. Successful Bankruptcy case and now looking forward to positive results on a Probate case. All I can say is THANKS for opening this law firm on Warford. I would also like to commend legal secretary Greenwade for being attentive to her office duties. If you ask a question, she'll have an answer or will get one. After dealing with this firm, I will choose no other.
All she cared about was money her and ms Greenwade rarely returned phone calls, she charged 450 dollars each time we had to go to court and when we got there she was unprepared and the end result my payments went up. I'd rather have a court appointed attorney at least they try
Felicia Corbin Johnson is an extremely unorganized and unprofessional lawyer. She was my divorce lawyer who I never got the chance to meet. She stood me up 3 times when we were scheduled to meet. It is her employees that are the legal know how in this office. I have watched her in court and have observed the judge reprimand her for lateness and her unprofessionalism. Thank god my divorce only required paper work to be mailed to another county or I would have still been fighting for a divorce.
