About Me


I practice and manage the litigation department of JSBarkats. I am a trial lawyer  whose focus is in employment, securities and ccommercial disputes.  We are a boutique firm who pride ourselves delivering great service at a lower cost. Bigger isn’t always better, especially when it comes to being cost effective. The majority of legal matters that most businesses encounter, with some exceptions, do not require the assistance of a giant law firm with hundreds of attorneys and just as many overhead costs.  JSBarkats LLP successfully handles those same matters using a small, elite group of attorneys whose operating expenses are far more reasonable.  However, certain investments in overhead, such as personnel and equipment, do make sense because they directly benefit the client. This is why JSBarkats uses the services of paralegals and other support staff and is committed to using the latest technology available to serve client needs.

    Tobe Johnson is a dedicated and results driven attorney capable of handling the complex litigation matters. I've collaborated with Tobe Johnson in representing clients in commercial matters and can attest to the fact that he brings an extensive set of analytical skills sharpened through years of practicing law. Mr. Johnson’s professionalism in dealing with clients and attorneys sets him apart from the multitude of tri-state attorneys. I would confidently refer any litigation matter or client to Mr. Johnson.

    I have worked with Tobe on litigation matters in both federal and New York state courts. Tobe is professional in every sense, knowledgeable, diligent, hard-working, personable, and goes above and beyond for clients and associates. I have watched him endure the most difficult personalities, yet maintain his professional demeanor and successfully meet his objectives. I heartily recommend his representation and look forward to working with him in the future.
