Excellent Attorney
This was my first time meeting Attorney Johnson after he took over our family Attorney. Attorney Johnson is just as qualified to get the job done. He was very patient with me as he and his assistant April explain every step of my case. Whatever I didn’t understand they both was able to assist me. I would recommend the firm for any service you may need.

Awesome job, very pleased!
Jonathan W. Johnson and his staff was very professional and easy to work with. They were readily available to answer questions and explain things throughout the process. They would call and get updates on my medical treatment, and would inform me as to how the case is progressing. I never once called or emailed and did not get a response. They are easy to work with and treat you in a professional manner no matter how big or small your case is. They assisted in the paperwork and documents of the case and made sure to explain every step of the process. I would highly recommend this firm in any legal matter.

I was referred to Jonathan’s law firm by my attorney in Dallas. It has been a year since I hired Jonathan’s firm and I was kept informed on any issues that arose throughout the entire process. I could not have asked for better communication. Kudos to Mark Peters who handled all of my questions and concerns within 24 hours! He was a pleasure to work with on a daily basis.

Great Auto Injury Lawyer
I was involved in an auto accident at the fault of another driver. From the start, I was welcomed like family and experienced nothing less than great service. I truly had an amazing experience! Communication with any and everyone was incredibly easy, helpful and professional. Rodney Rainwater was the paralegal that I worked with throughout the process, and he answered any and all of my questions in a very timely manner. No one wishes to encounter these circumstances, but I am glad that I was able to go through everything with this law firm on my side!

Car accident Attorney | Nov 13
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I served as local counsel for Jonathan on a case in which a pedestrian was killed as a result of being struck by a taxi. The facts of the case made it a difficult liability case, but Jonathan and his team did extensive early investigation which helped develop facts which made the case very winnable. When it came time to negotiate the case, he took a very hard line with the defense not blinking in the face of tough facts and was able to secure a significant settlement on a very difficult case. I was very impressed with the work that Jonathan and his team did and with their diligence in prosecuting the case. I strongly recommend Jonathan if you have need for a lawyer to handle a significant personal injury/wrongful death case."
