I hired Peter to help with my son's Minor-DUI case (was driving with a .04 and was subject to having license taken for a year by DMV). Peter was really helpful, getting us an extension twice when needed, meeting with us multiple times, answering all our questions, and then winning our case! It was a stressful situation for our family and having somebody who knew the ins and outs of the DMV system, including which hearing officers are friendly and which are not, and the relevant case law, was a big stress relief. I would highly recommend Peter for this type of work.
I am currently a graduate student with a bachelor's in mathematics and working on my masters in education. Almost all my life I have aspired to be a math teacher and when I was charged with a DUI I saw that dream going down the drain. I knew I wanted to fight it, knowing that if I had a misdemeanor on my record I wouldn't be hired as a teacher. I hired Peter Johnson as my lawyer, it went to a jury trial, and I was found not guilty.
Peter Johnson saved my career and my dream. I could never thank him enough. He was everything I could have asked for. He is very knowledgeable about everything pertaining to DUI cases. This includes traffic law, DUI investigation protocol, compliance with Title 17, the devices used to test blood/breath alcohol, and more. And if his extensive knowledge isn't enough, he is amazing in the courtroom. He connects to the jury by making them realize their importance in the justice system and also by making everything clear to them. Like what was said in previous review, "he is a hawk." I could not have asked for a better lawyer.
I hired Peter Johnson to defend my partner against criminal charges of defrauding the state of California (2 felonies). The case took place in Mammoth Lakes, CA and Peter drove all the way there for the arraignment. He spoke with the District Attorney and convinced him that I had important information regarding this case. The D.A.'s investigator interviewed me as a witness with Peter Johnson sitting by my side. The D.A. decided to dismiss all charges against my partner. My partner and I were ecstatic. Peter is not only an excellent lawyer, but is also a compassionate and moral person.
I had a summons dropped on me & no clue what was happening. Peter was quick to respond, jumped thru hoops & resolved my issue without me having to travel out of state. He took immediate action as needed and handled my case efficiently. I highly recommend Peter and will use him again!
I'm very glad to have chosen Peter Johnson as my DUI attorney. Peter's a straight shooter. He's not necessarily going to try to make you feel warm and fuzzy about everything. But in the court room, he's a hawk. Bottom line, he got my charges dismissed, and that's the most important thing.
Through the process, I learned a lot about how the system works. Trials get rescheduled. Witnesses are expensive. Judges go on vacation. These factors were frustrating to me, especially at first. Peter probably could have done a better job preparing me for these situations early on. Once he helped me understand these factors, he worked very closely with me on the details and presented me with a variety of options and potential outcomes. He's extremely knowledgeable, and clearly is very experienced. I can't imagine going through this ordeal with someone lacking these skills.
I highly recommend Peter if you need an aggressive, skilled attorney.
