I was on a cross country roadtrip and got pulled over for wreckless driving in Virginia (71 mph in a 55mph zone). I was unable to come back to Virginia for my court date and was unsure how to handle the situation. I explained everything to Mr. Johnson and he was able to handle everything for me! It was so easy! He went to court for me and handled all the paperwork. He even got my misdemeanor reduced to a simple driving infraction. Overall, very pleased and satisfied.

I have never been so impressed or pleased with any lawyer that I have worked with, either for simple property purchases or traffic tickets. My daughter recently received a ticket and moved to another state. From the moment I contacted his law firm everything went much smoother and easier than I expected. He was easily reachable, polite, thorough and no extra fees for requesting a continuance on our behalf. The ticked was dismissed and she was able to obtain her drivers license without having to come back again and no marks, or fines or problems. I would not hesitate to retain his services again if needed. Only wish he was licensed to practice in our state now.

Mr. Johnson is an excellent attorney who shows great respect not only to the people that he represents but everyone he comes into contact with. I could not recommend any one higher than Mr. Johnson. Mr. Johnson has represented my son 3 times and each time got a better outcome than was expected.

I had the opportunity to work with Jerrell Johnson when I was a prosecutor. Jerrell is dedicated to getting the best results for his clients. He works hard before the trial date to get as much information about the case as possible and he is articulate and persuasive when defending his clients in Court. He is an excellent defense attorney.
