Stress Free
I was arrested back at the end of April for a DUI. Upon talking to Mr. Johnson, he eased my mind a bit from the start. He was able to get me my temporary license, and kept me informed of important dates coming up. He was able to get my DUI reduced to a Careless Operations ticket, and get my real license back fast. This was important to me since most of my work is out of state, and I was not able to drive to another state. He really eased my mind about what was to come, and was very affordable. He kept the process for me as stress free as it could be and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks again Mr. Johnson for all you did.

Professional representation from Mr Brian Johnson
Mr Brian Johnson was hired to represent me when I had some difficulties with a former client. From the start Mr Johnson was very professional, courteous, and always keeping me posted as to where everything was with my case. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs professional legal representation.

Excellent Attorney
"Brian represented me during my divorce and did a fantastic job. Being new to the state I was unfamiliar with many of the laws regarding custody and divorce. He was very knowledgeable, professional, honest, and above all made me feel protected. Brian was always very responsive to my emails and phone calls and I knew I could count on him. Thank you so much Brian! Hopefully, I don't need anymore legal representation in the future, but even if I get a ticket, I'm calling Brian Johnson."

Car accident lawsuit
After being in a car accident which caused my car to be totaled, I called Brian to see what I should do. I was hit from behind and even though I didn’t need surgery, I did need physical therapy. Brian told me exactly what steps to take in order to get the medical help I needed. I went to months of physical therapy and he followed up to see how I was doing every step of the way. He got me enough money to pay my medical expenses and to pay off what I owed on the car that was totaled. I am forever grateful for the help Brian provided for me and for checking on me throughout the whole process.

Personal Injury Recommendation
I highly recommend Brian Johnson and this law firm! I was hit by a drunk driver while sitting at a red light, and needed the assistance of an experienced personal injury lawyer. It was a very scary situation and I had lots of questions. Mr. Johnson was always available to answer my questions, and explain the process. My case was handled in a very professional, courteous, and timely manner with a great outcome. Thank you BJB Law Firm!

Worker’s Compensation
I hired Brian when I got injured on the job. I contacted Bluestein, Johnson & Burke and they got me in to meet with Brian ASAP. I was very concerned about hiring an attorney because of the company I was working for at the time. Brian made the process a lot easier and I was able to deal with him directly. Brian got me the medical care I needed and I was very pleased with his knowledge of the worker’s compensation law in South Carolina. He was very hands on with my case and aggressive with the process. I had no issues with my employer once I hired Brian. I was more than satisfied with my final settlement. I highly recommend Brian if you get injured on the job.

Family court
I hired Brian Johnson to represent me in a family court case to regain visitation rights with my son that was taken away. Brian is very knowledgeable, available and was prompt to all my questions and concerns. He worked very hard to get to a resolution that ended with an agreement rather than trying the case. Throughout the process Brian always assured me of my rights, and gave the best and worst case scenarios. He never promised I would get a ruling he didn’t believe was reasonable based on the circumstances. I couldn’t be more pleased with how well Brian represented me, and once an agreement was reached through mediation he assured me what I was getting was fair and could be worse if the case went to trial. I would recommend Brian in any matter that would fall under his expertise. He truly cared about my situation and the results that his firm produced was one I am pleased with.

When Your Attorney Knows The Law and His Practice
Character. Integrity. Respect. Tenacity. These are the words that come to mind when I think of Attorney Brian C. Johnson. In May of 2012, I suffered injuries from a head-on collision. Not only do I thank God for sparing my life, but I thank God for an attorney who knows the law and knows his practice. I called Brian the day after my accident and he was readily available to answer questions and concerns, and even made 2 house-calls to make sure I was recovering well. His genuine kindness and patience are hallmarks of his legal-side manner. I live 4 hours away from the accident site, but distance did not present any issues in making sure I was aware, updated, and consulted about every step in the process to resolution. Even on the day of the meditation, in the wake of inclement weather and the chance that I would not make it to Charleston for the meeting, Brian offered his calm demeanor in helping me to navigate safe travel. I arrived safely and was in absolute awe of Brian's candor in negotiating a fair settlement. Even when the opposing attorney wanted to play "unfair hard ball," Brian didn't leave the field. He stayed in the race and got my case to an amicable finish line. He thoroughly explained to me how the settlement of the case would be filed and how settlement funds would be disbursed. In the final analysis of my case, I felt that Attorney Brian C. Johnson provided professional legal services with excellence and distinction reflective of a level of brilliance which merits him a good name and referrals. If more attorneys served people in the manner of humility with a heart for humanity, more lawyers would be celebrated for knowing the law and their practice. God bless you Brian. Keep walking in the light of justice!

Personable and Professional
I consulted with and then retained Brian to handle my divorce. Primarily because he had a very relaxed demeanor and was very approachable not stuffy and stiff During what is usually a stressful time in most people's lives. He helps to keep it very professional and yet light. My situation was a little different and pretty easy to handle but I still felt he did a great job and didn't unnecessarily contact me for 'billable hours'. Divorce is not cheap to begin with but his rates were fair and comparable to others. I would highly recommend him.

Best attorney ever!
I had a few different cases with Brian. One was a separation which lead to a divorce, another was worker's comp and the last was a child custody case. Brian is by far one of the best attorney's I have ever met and had the pleasure of dealing with. He takes the time to truly listen to you, gives you HONEST feedback, and always gives his all to his cases. He has always showed me compassion, and he never made me feel like I was rushed when I called or met with him. If I needed Brian to answer a question for me and he couldn't give me an answer to the question I had, he researched it and promptly contacted me back with an answer. I never felt like I had any stupid questions nor did he ever make me feel like I was just a file on his desk. I would recommend Brian to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy hardworking attorney who will not let you down.

Brian and his team come highly recommended.
Brian was awesome as my divorce attorney. He was always there for me when I needed him and he guided me thru the divorce step by step. He was very strong when it came to dealing with her attorney. He never backed down and he stood his ground. Even my ex-wife said he was a lot better than her attorney. Brian and his team have been there for me even after the divorce was final. I would highly recommend Brian and his team for any man or woman going thru a divorce. I consider them to be the best.

A+ Representation from Start to Finish!
I hired Attorney Johnson for a personal criminal matter that had the potential to seriously impact my career for the long-term and was certain to affect my current position with my employer. I needed an attorney who would be discrete, efficient and that I could rely on. Mr. Johnson was thorough in explaining my rights and worked diligently to ensure that I would receive the best results. The case was resolved promptly and the outcome far exceeded my expectations. I was treated with respect and like a person, not just a pocket-book, the entire time. Since my representation, I have referred many friends and family to Mr. Johnson, and I will continue to do so. He truly is top-notch and I couldn't be more thankful for his honesty and guidance during a very stressful time.

True dedication and resolve to my Divorce...Best Family Lawyer in Charleston SC
I was in need of a top flight lawyer in my divorce case and separation. As soon as I was separated, Brian created a separation and maintenance document which immediately laid the ground work for my future settlement. This separation agreement relieved a lot of anxiety during my separation and laid out clear guidelines and boundaries for my ex wife and I to follow while we were separated during our year time frame. Brian is very pro family and wanted to do all I could to salvage the relationship and led me to the mediation route with my case and to a very good settlement that I was very happy with. He was always reachable and his billing statements were honest and concise. To this day, I still use Brian for any issues that arise with my ex wife and I have been satisfied to the fullest. If you are looking for an honest, reliable, and pit-bull in fighting for you and your case, then Brian Johnson is the lawyer for you. I will always be grateful for him in my time of need. One of the best!

Job well done!
Brian and his staff represented us during settlement negotiations after an automobile accident. From the beginning they demonstrated that they were interested in obtaining the best outcome on our behalf. The professional, efficient and compassionate atmosphere that permeated each meeting made us comfortable that they were dedicated to the task at hand. Their persistence and follow-up resulted in a favorable outcome that exceeded our expectations. I would recommend Brian and his staff to anyone who has need of legal representation. You can rest assured that your interests will be well taken care of.
