  • A. Kyle Johnson

    Carol is an exceptional lawyer who approaches cases as a problem solver not as a problem creator. Most important for clients, she focuses on the real issues in each case and doesn't waste time or money in petty arguments with opposing counsel. Her character and ethics are at the highest level.
