I had the pleasure of having Ms. Johnson assist me in a very difficult time in my life. With a child with behavioral and RAD issues, led to an unfortunate situation. It was probably my darkest period in my life but Ms. Johnson was nothing but fabulous of being caring to my personal concerns but extremely aggressive on resolution options to pursue. Through a well thought out process and plan not only were all legal items dismissed but i was able to reunite with my family and have a second lease on life. Ms. Johnson is caring, very very aggressive and extremely responsive. She is very well known in the CPS circle and has huge influence to drive decisions. I am blessed to be her client and friend forever.
Carin did a wonderful job handling my case. I retained her for a emotionally difficult juvenile case and she has been wonderful in the help she has provided. She takes the time and the effort to know her clients as individual. She earned my highest level of trust.
Mrs Johnson, is not only a great lawyer but also a great person. She made me feel good and confident since the first time we talked on the phone. Mrs. Johnson took action right away and kept me informed through out the whole process. She explains everything and breaks down whatever you have a problem understanding. Thanks to Mrs Johnson and her great dedication to helping me in my case I am now done and over with my case. I greatly appreciate all the help Mrs Johnson gave me and I know she will help others just as much as she helped me.
Carin handled a civil harassment / restraining order case for myself and my wife. From the minute we met her she made us feel comfortable and valued. She listened very intently to our situation and immediately jumped right in with great counsel. She is extremely knowledgeable about the law and was very energetic in pursuing our case. She had many useful insights and developed a great strategy for our case. She made tremendous use of a top-notch private investigator that we understand is an often used resource for her. She kept in touch with us at all times and was very diligent in giving us information about the progress she was making and how her strategy was evolving. During the hearing, she was quite effective on direct questioning, and did an equally strong job on cross-examination. She always seemed to be one step ahead of the opposing attorney. She is adept at reading the courtroom atmosphere (the judge, the flow of testimony, etc) and adapted her handling of the case to produce a very satisfactory outcome. We consider ourselves blessed that we had Carin representing us.
Wow! At consultation, she found out right away I was charged wrongfully! (300a, instead of 300b). The previous court appointed attorney & the one I hired didn't catch that? Nor did they even explain things to me, which is why I consulted with Carin.
After accepting me as her client, & seeing how she works in the court room, I can say that I feel more at ease & worry free, compared to before. I only wish I'd consulted with her sooner, So if anyone out there is looking for a great lawyer, I highly recommend Carin Johnson & her Firm, without a doubt!
I believe I called Carin on the Friday evening, she agreed to meet with me that weekend. It was Sunday afternoon and her office was closed but that did not stop her she understood my urgency and arranged a consultation. That Monday was court and the next week my child was released back to her family. Carin asked me to trust her, and I did, I had no choice, I was at the mercy of her knowlege and experience. I have had a number of bad experiences with Lawyers and have came to believe all the ugly things people say about Lawyers. However, Carin shattered all those ugly remarks and showed herself to be loyal honest and trustworthy. As of today if I have any legal matters I will consult with Johnson and Johnson first if they can't handle my case. I will trust their recommendation. Thank you again and again Carin!
Carin responded to an immediate need quickly and professionally.
While working diligently on my case she made me feel as if I was her primary focus and it put my mind to immediate ease. She backed all of her statements to me with strong case law, and always spoke in clear concise language.
What I enjoyed the most (besides a favorable outcome to my case) was that she was always VERY quick to respond to any type of inquiry. I never once felt lost or alone. I knew that I was truly represented.
I am proud to have her as my lawyer and would ask her to represent me every time.
Ms. Carin Johnson came to my rescue at a time in my life when I was lost as to how to help my family. As I laid out the problem and my mission Ms, Johnson took me on as her client. I couldn’t have been in better hands. She listened to my story/problem. Did her due diligent with all the information I was able to provide. Ms. Johnson was honest with me about all the out comes that could happen in court. Then she presented my case in court. Ms. Johnson was very professional in executing the case before the court. She presented from a point of confidence & knowledge. Because of Ms. Johnson and her skills our family has had years of peace. If you’re looking for a lawyer that will fight for you, be honest with you, present your case in a professional manner, Ms. Johnson is the lawyer for you.
Working with Carin was a pleasure. She handled my issue brillantly & completely exceeded my expectations. She was able to handle my case without me having to miss work or appear in court. I would strongly recommend her to anyone and would use her services again.
We decided to retain Carin instead of Legal Aid, and feel her work on our case and results were worth the time and extra cost. She held CPS accountable to the law, and even handled our various appellate petitions. Dependency and juvenile court procedures are frighteningly byzantine to those of us on the "outside", and her compassion and knowledge in fighting for us in that court helped change things in that county.
