| Hired Attorney
Honest, hardworking, ethical and to the point.
I hired Ruth upon first speaking to her because she didn't lie to me and tell what I wanted to hear or was expecting to hear except the truth of my case and situation and what to expect. She doesn't play games or make false promises to get your business. I truly appreciate ethics like that. Having her as an attorney was a breath of fresh air. I wasn't worried about being lied to and she kept in touch with me throughout the entire process and fought hard for my rights when workers compensation was failing me. If you're looking to be represented by the best and most ethical worker's comp attorney look no further. I highly recommend her.

Honest, Genuine, Hard Working
Honest, genuine and hard working are only a few of the ways to describe this awesome attorney and her team. From the first day that I spoke with her, she was straight forward and didn't try to make a lot of promises that a lot of other attorneys make. Mrs. Johnson was always either immediately available or got back to me within a reasonable time to answer all my questions or satisfy my concerns. I was extremely happy with the outcome of the case and will recommend her every chance I get. Thank you Ruth, Joselin, and team.

Best Injjry Attorney in Miami
Had an accident that wasnt my fault. Was getting the runaround from the other person and their insurance. From day one she was on the case. I received in my opinion a reasonable settlement with respect to my case. Hopefully wont need another injury attorney in my lifetime, but if I do Attoney Johnson would be the person.
