About me

Buck Johnson has established himself as one of the most respected criminal lawyers in North Texas. In 2013, he was one of only seven Criminal Defense: DUI/DWI lawyers in the state chosen as a "Rising Star" by the "Super Lawyer" publication. He has won more not guilty verdicts over the last few years than many attorneys will win in a career. He prides himself on having built his practice on the referrals of satisfied clients, other attorneys, prosecutors and judges. If you or a loved one is facing a DWI or other criminal charge, need a record cleared, or is facing a disciplinary action from a professional licensing board, look no further than Buck Johnson.

    George is great. In the courtroom, he is a strong advocate for his clients. In trial, he has the unique ability to relate to a jury and communicate his points effectively.

  • David Daniel White

    There are no accolades that are too high when describing Buck Johnson's abilities as a criminal defense attorney. I can't think of anyone I would rather have standing in my corner if charged with a crime. I refer him all my DFW area cases and he has gotten results!
