  • Mark D. Gott

    I have known Mr. Johns for years. We have both been to the same elder law conferences. I have had court cases with him. I know him to be amongst the most knowledgeable attorneys in the field of elder law. He is someone I would personally call if I had a legal question that I did not know the answer to in the field of guardianship law.

  • Justin Richard Ervin III

    "Frank," as I know him, is the go-to guy for elder law -- a real guru. He is both a passionate and caring advocate for his clients and an asset to our local community and the legal community at large. I endorse this lawyer.
