About James

Learn James’s areas of practice.

5
Practice areas
  1. Car accident
    35%
    We wrote the book on how to handle accident cases in Virginia. Being injured because of another individual's negligent actions can be very stressful and upsetting. If you were harmed under these types of circumstances, I may be able to help.

  2. DUI and DWI
    35%
    If you have been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, I can assist you. There are serious legal repercussions if you are found guilty in a DUI/DWI case, including fines, loss of license, and possible jail time.

  3. Trusts
    15%
    We spend a lifetime providing for our children and preparing for college. As we reach retirement we recognize the wealth we've created and hope to pass along a Legacy to our grandchildren. Trusts are excellent ways to protect families and our wealth.

  4. Elder law
    5%
    As we get older or deal with serious medical conditions, there comes a time to make a plan and create necessary legal documents. It's very important to do this while you are still healthy and able to make sound decisions.

  5. Personal injury
    5%
    We wrote the book on how to handle accident cases in Virginia. Being injured because of another individual's negligent actions can be very stressful and upsetting. If you were harmed under these types of circumstances, I may be able to help.

  6. Probate
    5%
    Shock and disbelief dominate your life after the loss of a family member or loved one. No one wants to deal with the hard decisions and paperwork that exist during those early months. We handle all legal documents for our clients so they can grieve.

I have always enjoyed the challenges of math and other technical training.  That love of precision has directed me towards obtaining a Masters of Law (LLM) in Tax with a focus in Estate Planning from the University of Alabama.  This specialized training has helped me to catch major mistakes that many attorneys who dabble in Estate Planning are drafting into the Trust documents that they are providing to their clients.  Often, the attorney themselves is unaware of the errors that they are drafting. 

My love of advanced training has also lead me to obtain certification in Standardized Field Sobriety Tests from the NHTSA, which is the DUI training program that police officers receive at the police academies.  After learning the "inside secrets" to DUI investigations and arrests, I followed up my DUI training to become accredited as an Instructor for Standardized Field Sobriety Tests.

Mr. Johnson helped prevent me having to do jail time by coming to an agreement with the defense attorney. Which in result I plead no contest to one of my charges and plead guilty to the other.

Mr. Johnson was able to get my reckless driving ticket reduced down to an infraction. I was very pleased with the outcome!

Mr. Johnson has represented me and my family for several matters. His caring attitude and professionalism is second to none! His knowledge of legal practices and matters go above and beyond as he has been able to resolve all of our concerns and issues that have needed legal counsel. Mr. Johnson treats his clients like family by assuring them/us that he will do what ever it takes to resolve all matters. My family and I will always retain Mr. Johnson when needed and will always provide his services to other by recomendations and referrals.

Response from James Johnson October 24, 2016
Thank you Gary. It continues to be my honor to be a part of your family. I have enjoyed watching your boys grow into fine young men. Please don't hesitate if you need any assistance. If I don't perform that area of work, I will put you in contact with the best lawyer in our area who does perform that work. As you know, lawyers know other lawyers... wouldn't you like to hire that lawyer that other lawyers would hire!

Outstanding Lawyer!
Mr. Johnson handled my car accident case and did a wonderful job. Insurance company was not willing to offer anything to settle. Mr. Johnson got me a $75,000 settlement. What a difference a great lawyer makes...

Mr. Johnson helped me a couple years ago when a utility company was trying to get me to pay for $1,000 worth of fraudulant charges. I knew Mr. Johnson through a mutual friend and asked him for advice. He was completely willing to answer any questions I had and was even willing to allow me to use his name with the utility company so they would know I was serious about not paying the charges. The utility company ended up backing off and I haven't heard from them since Mr. Johnson stepped in to help me. I have recommended him to family and friends and in the future will continue to do so!

Did not help
This lawyer was no help on my court case. He did not explain the law or case in detail. James Johnson did not want to help me with my appeal case. He just took my money. When it was time to go to court for my appeal I did not know he did not want to help me. Less than a week before my case he left a message. My pending case was Reckless driving. He did not speak or contact me after my court appearance. Haven’t emailed me either. I would not recommend this lawyer or it’s firm at all.

Response from James Johnson February 26, 2018
Dear former client: I am saddened, but not surprised by your decision to post a 1-star rating of our representation of your case. From our first interaction, you refused to accept that Fairfax County imposes a jail sentence for speeding 95mph in the 55mph zone on I-495. Even Jayson Werth of the Nationals faced a similar situation. You ignored my advice in GDC and ended up with 4 additional days from the judge. I walked you through the appeal process so that you wouldn't go to jail that day. In the 3 months from your GDC date to your CC appeal, I left multiple messages reminding you that I was not retained for the CC appeal and recommended that you hire an attorney to whom you would listen for your appeal. You did not respond to our calls until the day before your appeal when you asked if I would be willing to attend the appeal. I respectfully declined because I prefer to work with clients who listen to my advice. I wish you the best of luck!
