I would recommend this attorney to others. Although he is green, he is responsive, knowledgeable, trustworthy and reliable.
He will give you sound advice, and he is reasonable and realistic, regardless of what you may want to hear. He will look at you and tell you "This is not a slam dunk case." He is an attorney who will give you a realistic prognostication of your outcome.
Simon is always available by text message too, which is huge when you are litigating a custody case. He responds extremely quickly.
He is collaborative, which is powerful, especially when dealing with custody litigation. He was a key variable in dealing with our GAL... I truly believe if we hadn't had such a reasonable representative, the GAL would not have been as receptive to our concerns.
Additionally (and perhaps most importantly), his billing is RESPONSIBLE. He will not bill you for a minute more than he has worked for you. If anything, he has underbilled my husband for his custody case. He will let you know ahead of time: this is what this strategy will cost.
Simon is not a bull in a china shop, or a hammer. He's a staid, realistic attorney who truly cares about children and their parents. He is creative with his legal strategies, and realistic with his outcomes. He under-promises and over-delivers.
I've personally known Simon Johnson for years as a friend & attorney.
He has helped me over and over just going out of his way to stand up for his client, he carrys himself properly and respects his clients issues.
He has made the judicial system experience much easier and keeps the process simple and smooth.
I would highly recommend Simon W. Johnson and will continue to use him in the future.
Simon has been an asset for our small family business on more than one occasion. He is helpful, easy to work with, pleasant, and he does what he says he will do. I just recommended to one of our ow clients today.
Simon prosecuted a batch of several difficult FED cases for me. He handled it with skill.
