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+.
