LAW OFFICES OF DANIELE JOHNSON

I was called to serve and advocated for others at a very young age. I first answered that call while in my 3rd year of law school when I became court certified to represent victims of domestic violence.  Upon graduating from law school, I was hired by the Dauphin County District Attorney’s Office. There, I was assigned to the Special Victims Unit, assisting in the prosecution of felony crimes committed against children.

 

In 1999, I relocated to West Cobb to pursue my true passion, the practice family law.  Since then, I have been handling such matters as divorce, custody, child support, legitimation, and adoptions. In 2006, I became court-certified to serve as a Guardian Ad Litem in Cobb County, meaning, I am trained to determine and represent the best interest of children.  

 

My basic philosophy in handling my cases is to get my clients from point A to point B as painlessly, expeditiously, and efficiently as possible while helping realize their hopes, dreams, and aspirations.  I represent my clients with the appropriate level of aggressiveness while we remain in frequent communication. I then work very closely with my clients as we work together to reach their identified goal.  

 

I would love to learn more about you and your family's law needs. Please contact me at the office to schedule an appointment to discuss your case in more detail.  

 

 Thank you and I look forward to working with you soon.

Excellent!
I had the privilege of working with Daniele Johnson as my family attorney during my divorce, and I couldn't be more satisfied with her exceptional service. Daniele possesses great communication skills, a deep understanding of the legal intricacies, and a supportive demeanor that truly made a difference. She is not only a fantastic listener but cares and also knew exactly when to pivot in my case, showcasing her expertise and professionalism. I highly recommend Daniele for anyone in need of a dedicated, trustworthy and knowledgeable family attorney.

Mr. Stuart King
Daniele did an excellent job solving our case every step of the way. She makes sure her client and their family are protected doing the entire process. She is great in court and with the mediation process. Daniele’s experience and personnel dedication exceeded our expectations. We would not have able to achieve the better than expected outcome without her.

The Best Attorney!!
Mrs. Daniele Johnson, I appreciate ALL that you have done for me and my case. You were extremely patient, kind, and firm (when I needed it)! The outcome was everything I wanted and what you told me I would get. You are truly a blessing in my life and I couldn’t be more grateful to have retained a more proficient lawyer. Great results is what I was looking for and you went beyond my expectation! If I need services again, you are the only person I would ever come back to! Thank you again!

Legitimation
I hired Attorney Johnson weeks before I was scheduled to see a judge, and Attorney Johnson took on my case with no hesitation. She was very attentive to what I wanted out of this situation and stayed in contact throughout my process. I would definitely recommend her. Thank you, Mrs. Johnson.

Fair, Honest, Compassionate, Fierce Advocate
14 months ago I was referred to Daniele by my therapist who was treating me for PTSD for domestic abuse. I was a bit of a mess but knew I needed a divorce and my only concern was the safety of my 2 kids still at home (1 a minor). She listened with compassion to my story and clearly explained my options and the process. It was a scary time but I could quickly tell I was in very capable hands. Papers were served and then Covid hit and the courts shutdown. Daniele kept me well informed throughout the process, even when there was no update to provide. She was finally able to schedule a mediation with the opposing attorney over Zoom and it was set up in breakout rooms so I did not have to face my abuser. Daniele has a calm about her, and is a fierce advocate for you. The mediation was long and Daniele explained my options at each step and was vey clear to the opposing side of my non-negotiables. The outcome was better that I expected and most importantly I was able to get sole custody and decision making of the 1 minor child with no court mandated visitation. I highly recommend Daniele. She is very professional, knowledgeable of the law, fierce advocate, fair, honest, great listener, and compassionate. I felt I was part of the process throughout and it was a partnership.

Response from Daniele Johnson March 30, 2021
Thank you so much for this review. Your case is a reminder of why I decided to practice family law over 25 years ago, when, in my 3rd year of law school, I became court-certified to represent victims of domestic violence. Thank you for trusting me and sharing your story. I am so excited for you and for this new chapter of life you deserve to live. Take care.

My Divorce
When I got served with my divorce I consulted a few lawyers but did not feel comfortable with any until I sat down with Daniele Johnson. I had concerns about my children, my business and more but after voicing them to her she made me understand the process and how I may or may not be affected by the divorce. I decided to hire Daniele and it was the best choice I made. She handled my case professionally from beginning to end and when I had questions about my case she was always available to answer them. When everything was over I was very pleased with the outcome. I would definitely use Daniele Johnson again and I would recommend her to anyone.

Best Lawyer Ever
Attorney Johnson is truly a one of a kind individual. I walked into her office with all the odds staked against me and she was willing to take on my case even though in my view it was a long shot to come out victorious. After almost two long years of numerous court proceedings, she was able to accomplish for me what I could have never imagined on the day we met. There are not enough words in the English language for me to heap my praise on her. Not only is she an amazing lawyer, she is an excellent person also. I recommend her to all, and will hire her again if necessary.

Compassionate Attorney
After wasting a few thousands of dollars for another attorney in an already stressful situation, I came across Attorney Johnson and read the reviews before contacting her office. She gave me a sense of hope after speaking with her, and I am so glad I chose her to represent me in my divorce. She proved that she was in my corner and I could not be more happy that my divorce is finalized.

Amazing Family Attorney!
Daniele Johnson represented me for my domestic violence separation/divorce in 2020. When the separation occurred, I was an unemployed stay-at-home mom/wife so obviously I was devastated to have to leave my home with my children’s. Mrs. Johnson assured me that everything would work out fine. She was very kind and concerned about me getting what I deserved, and I appreciated that greatly. Thanks to Covid-19 the process took 20 months, and she was very patient with the process. She always responded quickly to emails and phone calls. I felt like Daniele was my partner and when it was all said and done, I left the marriage with physical custody of our daughter, possession of my vehicle and possession of the marital home. I could not have been more satisfied with the outcome of this divorce. I would definitely retain Mrs. Johnson’s services if a future need arises. Oh..... and did I mention that she represented me pro Bono because of my financial hardship at the time??? She’s amazing!

Honest, Competent, Compassionate
Ms Johnson was calming in the midst of my storm. Faced with divorce proceedings after a long-term marriage I was quite stressed and unsure how to proceed. Ms Johnson was very patient and listened carefully. She predicted a trial outcome that, at the time, I found difficult to believe. Yet in the end, the Judge ruled almost exactly as Ms Johnson had said he would. She is very fair and transparent with her billing. Facing legal issues is always a daunting prospect. Danielle Johnson will help you find your way through the maze. Danielle Johnson- Professional. Competent. Compassionate.

Adoption!!
Daniele Johnson was exceptional! After being jerked around by another lawyer for 6 months, I contacted Daniele and got the adoption process started all over. My husband was adopting my daughter after being her ‘dad’ for years and the biological father being absent. She knew exactly what to do, how to do it, and when to do it! She stayed in contact with us throughout and was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend and would definitely use her again! My husband is now legally my daughters father and we wouldn’t be here with Daniele Johnson! Thank you!

GREAT ATTORNEY
Daniele Johnson is hands-down the best family law attorney I've ever hired. I remember a promise she made to me shortly after our first conversation: "I will treat your money as if it were my own". She kept that promise the entire time I needed her. But beyond that, and more importantly to me, Daniele knows the law, is compassionate... and when needed... she is tough as nails. If you're in the position I was not long ago and searching for a quality attorney with YOUR best interests at heart… search no further. Daniele Johnson is that attorney. Going to court is stressful enough – there’s no reason to also be worried about your legal representation. Speaking with Daniele never failed to ease my anxiety and fill me with confidence. I was not disappointed. JOB. WELL. DONE. DO NOT hesitate to give her a call. I’d give her 6 stars but the scale only goes to 5.

VERY nice!
I open that way because so often people in general and especially attorneys (sorry) can be jerks to you when you need them most. I met her the day after Christmas and she could not have been nicer to me. Im most likely going to use her but even if I do not I just want to OPENLY thank her for hearing me out in a very dark hour of my life.
