I am a single mother of three children going to school full-time and working full-time. So time, health, and money are truly critical to the success of my family. This became acutely apparent when another driver pulled out in front of me and totaled my only car. Not even two weeks later while sitting at a stop-light in the rental car I was using while looking for a new car I was rear-ended. This second accident aggravated the injuries I had already sustained from the first accident and pushed me into seeking medical help. I did not know that there was any legal help for me until a friend recommended Jarrett. I did not think I was going to be able to afford a lawyer or be able to find the time to organize my life around yet another time demand. But I met with Jarrett and was immediately put at ease and assured that my situation was not hopeless. Jarrett was professional and efficient throughout the case and treated me with respect and dignity. He never put too much demand on my time and never once put a strain on my finances. He was always respectful and considerate when speaking with me and always kept me educated on what was happening with the case. Jarrett is not only an incredible lawyer he is an incredible person. What started as a tragedy and a blow to my family turned into a positive experience with a positive and hopeful ending. I am grateful for Jarrett's services. I feel as if I walked away from all of this with a new friend.
In 2014 my life was in pure fear, hell, and I thought I was going to fall apart. I had received and call that my 2 sons were in Grandview jail. My body left me, I thought my world had ended. I immediately started to seek help. I had spoken to a few friends and family members. All I could do at that moment was look up to GOD and ask him to send me some help. At that moment I was introduced to Jarrett Johnson. I was told right up front that he has a kind loving spirit, is very caring, and professional. I didn't hesitate to call him because I knew, GOD heard my cry.
I spoke with Jarrett Johnson, and I expressed my heartfelt concern as a mother, and he in return expressed his heartfelt concern as a parent/attorney. He took all the information and stated that he would get on it, researching it, and get back with me on the proceedings. Later that day my sons were released on bond. I called and relayed this information to Jarrett. His concern for my sons seemed to be as GREAT as mine!!! At that time, I felt a sign of relief. I thought this man knows the mom in me or, he knows JESUS!!!.
Jarrett Johnson handled this case with GREAT care and concern, going above and beyond all that was expected of him. He stayed in touch with me via e-mail, text, or phone. On several instances I would get overwhelmed and just needed to know if my sons were going to be okay when this was complete. Jarrett was always so comforting, reassuring me that he had this and I was not to worry.
When the court date arrived, I was a train wreck. Jarrett asked for us to meet him at the courthouse a little early and that he would be looking for us. So as I arrived I called him and told him we were there. He stated I will meet you at the front doors. Upon entering the front door of the court house, it was a crowd, so we were just waiting. But..... as soon as I entered that lobby, it was like a magnet drew us together!! Immediately, I reached to shake his hand and hug him. He shook the hands of my two sons and lead us over to a conference area.
His words were, "ALL DONE". I said, HUH??? He said I took care of it and they have a clean slate. I completely lost control of the muscles in my legs. My knees buckled and I had to sit down. He said its handled, gave my sons and myself a run of the paperwork and results, hugged each of my sons, gave them words of encouragement, and released us to go.
Jarrett Johnson is HEAVEN SENT!!!!!! and any mother, father, sister, brother, uncle, auntie, cousin, etc. that might ever need an ANGEL to carry them through any type of legal situation, please direct your attention to The Jarrett Johnson Law Firm.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm against your face,
and the rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May GOD hold you in the palm of HIS hand.
I have known Jarrett for quite some time now, and he is one of the most caring and helpful individuals I know. There are people you come across in life who will drop everything and help you when you need it the most, and Jarrett is one of those people. I was going through a very difficult time in my life and needed legal help immediately, and Jarrett helped get through it all smoothly. All I did was send him the court papers he needed and a week later he contacts me saying it's all taken care of. The feeling of relief I got was unforgettable. All in all, Jarrett is the best and without hesitation I would go to him for help again!
Jarrett handled a case for us that other lawyers wouldn't touch. He was fearless and knew how to proceed. He went above and beyond researching about our specific type of case. He did a great job.
I was in a bit of a pickle what with unpaid tickets, expired tags, as well as a suspended license. Luckily my mom knew Jarrett, and he took on my case. I was thankful to have him as a connection because he was able to get two of my three cases dropped, which saved me a LOT of money, and I now can get my license reinstated! It was such a relief. Plus he was easy to work with and promptly responded to any questions or email I sent to him. If you need a lawyer, I would definitely recommend Jarrett. He saved me from a lot of stress and helped me out so much.
My life was turned upside down after being rear ended.The use of my right side was void in the beginning, making it nearly impossible to the every day chores we take for granted. Jarrett has been there through good times & bad times. It has been three VERY LONG years that have been nothing short of a roller coaster ride and, a battle. However, I'm glad that Jarrett NEVER gave up or stopped fighting for what I DESERVE and, what I am entitled to." If I ever have questions about anything, I send an email or call and ALWAYS get an answer. It doesn't have to be about my case, it can be about anything. Jarrett is kind, compassionate and truly cares. I am very blessed to have Jarrett as my attorney, my friend.
I know quite a few attorneys and Mr. Johnson ranks right up there with the best of them. Being that my troubles could have easily caused quite a disruption in my professional career, Mr. Johnson took very good care to make sure that I achieved the best possible outcome. I am very pleased with his work and his level of professionalism is matched by few. Other than one scheduling conflict, my case was handled expediently and without any hiccups. If you are looking for a very good criminal defense attorney, this should be your first call.
Jarrett was recommended by a long time personal friend who is a appeals lawyer and judge in the KC area. I cannot thank that friend enough for the recommendation. The money invested and my thanks doesn't touch the true gratitude I have for Jarrett Johnson's efforts. He successfully won a post conviction relief case that grants my stepson a new lease on life. Thanks Jarrett you're 1st Class, a true gentleman and scholar plus a damn good attorney!
Jarrett was recommended to me by another KC attorney. I was extremely pleased with the outcome and how quickly the case was handled. Jarrett genuinely cares about his clients and what is best for them. He answered any questions that I may have had and kept me informed of what was going on. I feel very lucky to have had him as my attorney. I would not hesitate to use his expertise again if needed or recommend his services to others.
I met Jarrett Johnson in December through a referral from another KC lawyer. Since then, he has done nothing but make my experience with the legal system smooth, affordable and convenient. I have a friend who had a similar offense, paid about twice as much for their lawyer and ended up with much worse consequences. Jarrett did everything in his power to make sure I didn't miss work for appearances, had manageable consequences and was able to get my charge lowered so it didn't effect my job. I can't thank him enough for what he did for me and I would recommend him to anyone with any type of charge. He's brilliant and kind and I now consider him a friend; that's how personable and helpful he is.
