I could not have asked for a better attorney!
Paul was recommended to me by an attorney out of Atlanta who gave him an amazing recommendation. I had a bad experience with a previous attorney and Paul and his team were perfect for me. I was more than pleased with them during every step of my long divorce. I would highly recommend him no matter what your divorce holds - mediation, discovery issues, hearings, briefs, or a trial - I worked with him through all of these and never once doubted that I had the best representation. From our first meeting, I knew that he would work to achieve the very best for me. He was extremely informative, realistic, and sympathetic. Above all, Paul is extremely ethical and very well respected by both judges and other attorneys. I was able to build a great relationship with both Paul and his associate, Elizabeth. This strong connection was vital to supporting me through this long process. I will forever be grateful to them for their support and guidance.

The Best of the Best!
When I asked my dad’s best friend and local Real Estate Attorney who he would recommend to represent me in what I knew would be a long, drawn out, nasty divorce and custody battle he didn’t hesitate to recommend Paul Johnson. His words were, “he is the best! Very level headed and aggressive. Call Paul!” When going through a divorce, especially when a child is involved, the unknown is terrifying. It was a long time before I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. Paul and his team were always there to comfort, counsel, and assure me they were doing everything in their power to get my case settled with mine and my child’s best interest at heart. From the beginning Paul was very informative, and sympathetic yet honestly realistic. Which was comforting to say the least. Over the 2 years, I had the pleasure of being represented by Paul, I have come to find that Paul is not only favored by his clients, but even more so by his fellow attorneys, and many others in the community. In the Courtroom, as well as mediations and depositions, Paul was nothing short of impressive to both myself and my father (who has spent quite a bit of time in a court room). Considering my situation, I comforted in knowing that Paul and his entire team will continue to be there in the upcoming months/years to come. His Associate Attorney, Samantha, was also a God sent! She was always available on short notice when I was in a panic. She was rational, professional, yet sympathetic to my situation and was somehow able to calm me down during some pretty trying times. I honestly can’t say enough good things about Paul and his entire team. I will recommend him time and time again.

Still helping me 10 years after my divorce
Paul and his assistant Sherry are amazing. They helped me through a tough divorce 10 years ago. I have had several questions come up throughout the years.... They have always been there to help and ease my mind. I feel like they have gone above and beyond to help me. If you want a lawyer who will be there for you over time, Paul is that lawyer. I highly recommend !

Highly recommend
Paul was recommended by other lawyer friends in Savannah. From the first meeting we knew we had the right lawyer. Paul and his staff were so caring during the initial crisis. Paul not only provided sage advice throughout, he did so with intelligence, wit and humanity. Going to the office for the initial meetings, Sherri and Linda were always so welcoming and kind. Our family will be forever grateful to Paul and his staff. Paul is a decent man and this makes him a true gem in this profession. I highly recommend Paul.

No better attorney in Savannah
If you require the best family lawyer in Savannah then you need to hire Paul Johnson. Divorce is always a difficult situation but Paul handled my case as smoothly as possible. He is a strong fighter for his client and I always felt he had my best interest in mind.

I am beyond thankful for having Paul!
I have been more than pleased with Paul and his staff from Day 1. In my first intake session with him, he was extremely informative, realistic, but sympathetic. Paul is extremely ethical, which is something I take very seriously. I felt like Paul and I were able to build a great relationship from this. He was able to get a full understanding of the situation, keep our son as his top priority, and guide me through this process thinking about all parties involved. Paul has received an amazing amount of respect from the judges and his clients, to other attorneys, mediators, and community leaders. His Associate Attorney, Samantha, was also a huge bonus for me personally. She was amazing, stayed one step ahead of me, and was always available when I needed her. Because of Paul, I have finally settled and am at peace with a situation that is never settling.

Sound and Clear Advice
Paul was able to explain succinctly the best options in a lengthy and complicated custody dispute which involves international travel. He continuously provided sound advice, encouraged options to save costs and ultimately knew the best manner in which to approach the court. We succeeded on all points and I believe Paul now has a nuanced understanding of the complicated international child abduction risks.

Do you need an excellent attorney?
I did and am I ever glad that an attorney friend of mine recommended Paul. This was my first divorce and I knew absolutely nothing about how it would work. Paul and his staff took control during the entire process involving multiple offers, mediation and the possibility of a trial. Paul not only averted a trial but got me a very satisfactory settlement and a quick closure to the matter. He and his staff were professional and kept my expenses very reasonable. I highly recommend Paul without hesitation!!! Thanks guys....

Beyond Exceptional Representation
Paul and his staff represented me in my domestic case and at the most stressful time in my entire life they were amazing. I was recomended to Paul by another well known attorney. They said "Paul is the most intelligent lawyer I know". They were right but more than that he is an honest caring man and his staff are awesome. He took care of things before I asked and even more often he took care of things that I didn't even know I should ask. He anticipated future problems and diverted risk. He is organized and always well prepared. His skill is obvious in the courtroom and with all that , he is still a nice guy. I would completely recommend Paul to anyone dealing with domestic issues!!!

Excellent Attorney
Paul was available for consult immediately. He gave excellent advice throughout the process. The divorce was final in three months. It went smoothly as he is an empathetic communicator who works effectively with other attorneys for compromise. Everything was handled with integrity and attention to detail. His staff was friendly and supportive in every way which says so much about how he manages his business. I highly recommend Paul Johnson.

Excellent Attorney, Excellent Advocate!
There really aren't enough characters allowed in this review for me to relay how wonderful it was to work with Paul Johnson and his staff, but I will try! Unfortunately, my spouse wanted a divorce when our child was just 5 months old. I have worked in the legal community and immediately called upon my friends and professional contacts for their recommendations for a divorce and custody attorney. Everyone I spoke with suggested Paul Johnson. He has acquired quite a name for himself, and rightfully so. He and his staff were friendly, responsive and empathetic every step of the way. When you are going through such a terrible situation, you obviously want an advocate who will look out for your best interests legally. I was pleasantly surprised that not only did Attorney Johnson and his staff provide me with excellent legal representation, but they also went the extra mile by being kind and understanding, and they have an extraordinary ability to navigate the process with as little emotional upset as possible. I am surprised that Atty Johnson didn't major in psychology as his undergraduate degree! He knew just the right times to keep my spouse and I separate, when to encourage us to talk, and when to get down to business. And another bonus- for all of his hard work- the fees are reasonable. Honestly, I would have paid double the amount of fees for the service he provided, but I didn't have to. If you need a divorce, custody or family attorney, Atty Johnson is your guy!

I was extremely satisfied and would highly recommend this lawyer!
I needed a divorce attorney in October 2013 and Paul was highly recommended by some associates of mine and so after doing some research I decided to use him for my divorce and have not regretted it. During one of the most difficult times of my life Paul and his team were a god send by keeping me informed and handling my case exactly the way I wanted it handled and communicating with me in a very prompt, professional, caring and courteous manner which made the whole horrible ordeal bearable. He explained his fee’s and invoiced me timely and honestly and the invoices clearly accounted for every charge which I must say was very reasonable. I cannot thank him and his staff enough for their compassion and caring during my divorce. I would not wish a divorce on anyone but if you have to go down that road there is no one better to have by your side than Paul. the true definition of GREAT customer service.

A Lawyer You Can Trust
In 2010 I needed a divorce lawyer, and K. Paul Johnson was recommended to me. I will be forever thankful for that recommendation. My divorce was difficult, and the situation was very challenging. Atty. Johnson was extremely professional in his representation of me, yet let his human side shine through as well. My divorce and subsequent legal challenges were protracted, (3 years,) and I believe a lesser attorney and man would have moved on to more lucrative cases. However, Atty. Johnson always made me feel welcome in his office, and his staff was also very supportive. Atty. Johnson represented me in court several times, from my separation, through my divorce, and then through numerous contempt charges against my ex-husband.. He proved himself to be up to the task each and every time. It was obvious he had prepared well, and in advance, for each court appearance. He never backed down to opposing attorneys, presenting facts and arguments with confidence and an obvious knowledge of law. As a result of Atty. Johnson's representation and hard work, the court found in my favor every time we went before the judge. Atty. Johnson listened to my thoughts regarding my situation, and secured me the favorable, legal rulings I needed for my future. Without hesitation, I would recommend K. Paul Johnson as the attorney to go to for professional, capable, knowledgeable, compassionate, legal representation.

Fair, honest, understandable, and great at what he does!
I got to know Paul from my husband, who used Paul for his previous divorce. I had a custody issue with my ex-husband, and we hired Paul. He was prompt, very fair in his billing, upfront with his fee schedule and an expert at every turn we faced. Paul infuses the law with a common sense that made me feel comfortable through the process. I have other friends who I've seen get pummeled by their attorneys with outrageous deposits and fees and Paul exemplified complete integrity with money through and through never leaving me with the feeling that he was "sucking the life" out of me like most attorneys. I trusted the most precious things in my life with his care and knowledge and I'm ever grateful to have found Paul because he helped me get through this difficult time with care and expertise. I can't recommend anyone more skilled and gifted with the law, than Paul Johnson!

Endorsement for Paul Johnson
Paul handled my divorce case. He and his associates are very knowledgeable, courteous and professional. They made me feel as comfortable as possible while I was going through a very uncomfortable situation. I would recommend his law firm to anyone I know.

The BEST of the BEST!
Paul represented me during my divorce in 2008 and then again recently for an alimony matter. Paul is genuine, kindhearted and very knowledgeable of the law. He genuinely cares for his client’s needs and concerns. He also has an amazing courtroom presence. I am extremely pleased with the efforts of Paul and his entire staff! I hope that I won’t need his services in the future, but if I do, I would not hesitate to hire him again!

Paul helped me through a tough period in my life in a very professional yet personable manner. I did not know anything about a divorce or child custody battle but Paul was knowledgeable and guided me through this situation. Paul asked me what I wanted and delivered - I wanted custody of my child. If you want a trustworthy, professional attorney to help you through a difficult situation - there is no other than K. Paul Johnson.
