One of the best
Highly recommend Anthony for any legal matters you may have. He was very professional, knowledgeable, and resolved my matter quickly and efficiently. He obviously knows the system inside and out and has extensive experience in the Atlanta area court systems.

Outstanding!!!
In regards to my custody case, Mr. Van Johnson was very professional and thorough in his duties and responsibilities which resulted in a favorable final decision giving me primary custody. He went above and beyond what I was expecting to happen during the many trials. Mr. Van Johnson kept me fully informed of the status of my case, and responded in a timely manor to every correspondence I sent him. He was very reasonable and fair in his cost of services and with the payments for said services. He is very knowledgeable in all the laws and rules involved in family law. Mr. Van Johnson guided me through the numerous questions I had and gave me great advice on what I could do to strengthen my situation. I am beyond words for the outstanding service Mr. Van Johnson provided while being at my side through every step of the way. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Van Johnson and his services to anyone who needs it.

Everything was handled just as it should have been. I cannot think of one complaint. He worked hard for me and it was worth every last penny.

Attentive
He is very attentive and his attention to detail is just what you want in a lawyer. I’ve recommended him to friends, family, and even strangers. He was a tremendous help and I’m so grateful.

He's the man
When you have suffered a personal injury, you don’t want to add insult to that injury by working with anyone less than completely qualified. I found Anthony to be understanding, empathetic and most importantly qualified.

He goes all out.
I was seriously injured and needed somebody willing to help me. Mr. Johnson was that person. I think the bad guys company was scared because they were quick to settle once Mr. Johnson got a hold of them. I wasn’t trying to be greedy, I just wanted them to be fair.

He stands up for his clients
Mr. Johnson is a good and honest lawyer who stands up for his clients. He seems like such a nice and quiet guy until he has to not be. He knows how to take care of business.

Supportive
They were a lot of help when I was absolutely confused about what was going on and what to do next. If you don’t know the law you can’t even begin to take things on yourself. Mr. Johnson was supportive and made sure I was always aware of deadlines and changes. He was easy to work with.

He got the job done
I was so behind on the paperwork it was crazy and I came to see Mr. Johnson had to do a bit of work to get things back into order. He got it done and I didn’t end up in trouble.

Responsive
I reached out to Attorney Johnson and surprisingly received a personal response within 24 hours. I was surprised because this is the third firm I’ve reached out to and the only one who got back to me. No surprise who gets my business.

Great work
I am glad that we were able to accomplish some great work with the team in Mr. Van Johnson's office. The case wasn't too involved, but I couldn't navigate it on my own.

Nice working with you
I am grateful to have worked with an attorney who can fully answer questions, follow up, and communicate through a difficult process. It is rough to work with those who can't accomplish even half of what Mr. Van Johnson.

He's responsive
Wonderful lawyer. He always makes sure to reach out to us when we contact him and end up leaving a message. We had another lawyer who had zero interesting in helping us so we came to see Mr. Johnson. it was the right thing for us to do. He’s gotten more done in the past couple of weeks than our old lawyer did in a few months.

Nicely responsive. I didn’t need a lot of hand-holding but I did want to know what was going on in my case. He was beyond capable of providing what I needed.
