The Best experience!!!
Caroline is an attorney you come across once in a life time . She is the sharpest most passionate lawyer I have ever seen in action and a super star litigator. She is genuine and compassionate . I hired her in my family case after years of agony and she turned my case into a victory . I have so much love for her and I am honored to recommend her for her exceptional ethics and talent and genius mind.

Common Sense Excellence!
I hired Caroline Johnson with a specific goal of taking my originally self represented case, through the Divorce Mediation process. While this is not a typical arrangement, Caroline understood my goals and molded her case review and prepared THOROUGHLY for the Mediation event. Her compilation & preparation of my case was never refuted by the Mediator or opposing council. Three cheers for Caroline and her staff! Highly recommend her for a "common sense" approach and excellent results!!

The Best
Caroline and Christen are truly amazing. I am so thankful I was referred to Caroline by a friend because I didn’t even know where to start. Not that any divorce is easy, but there were many unanticipated and difficult issues that arose during mine. I was given the best guidance and direction on how we should approach these issues and they basically took care of the rest. Above all else, they truly cared about me as a person and my wellbeing as a whole. Apart from being fantastic attorneys, I’m so grateful for that kind of support during a very difficult time.

Absolutely phenomenal!!!!
I hired Caroline to represent me when I filed for divorce this year. She went above and beyond. During a time that I felt very overwhelmed, Carloline put forth every effort to make the process as easy and comfortable for me. At the time I just wanted the divorce process to be over with because I did not want my toddler to be exposed to the toxicity of my ex and I, so I Didnt put up the fight that Caroline had suggested as she know what in as entitled to in my case. That being said, I just retained Caroline again because of my ex has not complied with our settlement agreement. I’ve taken every suggestion and guidance from her without feeling the needn’t to “settle” & i finally feel like I am gaining my life back and being given what I deserve. Caroline is easy to talk to, very genuine, empathetic, and compassionate; however is a go getter in every possible form. Without Caroline I truly feel my life would still be as volitile as it once was. Caroline has helped me out immensely that my ex and I are finally able to coparent cohesively without me being taken advantage of by him!!’ I owe this women everything !!!!!

Thankful!
I hired Caroline Johnson to handle my divorce on May 2017. My case was very difficult since my ex-husband was ammonite to give me 50% of a reckless business debt that he had incurred by himself three years prior to me filing for divorce. Caroline was extremely professional, compassionate, hard worker, assertive and a fighter to stand and protect my children and me. I am thankful to Caroline and her partner Christen Ritchey. Thanks to both of them, they turned a very delicate and difficult case around into a case where "justice" prevailed. Thanks to Caroline, my children and I have a stable financial future ahead of us. Thank you!!!

"THE BEST"
"3 MONTHS"- That is how long it took from our first meeting until I received my final judgement of dissolution of marriage. From the first time we met to discuss my situation, I knew Caroline was the right lawyer for me. She explained everything thoroughly in a systematic way. She kept me well informed throughout the ordeal. Any problems along the way, she handled them immediately. Her professionalism was outstanding.

Excellent Experience!
I hired Caroline to handle my divorce. After meeting with a couple attorneys, I decided she was the one because she brought the "human element" to what would otherwise have been very cold law matters. I went through a case that dragged out for a long time due to my ex-spouse and his attorney and to say that it was tricky would be a gross understatement. Caroline handled my case with amazing dignity and professionalism. She was tough in the court room and understanding with me. I cannot say enough good things about this practice and I am beyond happy that I chose Johnson & Ritchey. It was personalized service when I needed it most in my life. There was no chasing down for call backs and they stayed on top of everything each step of the way. If you are looking for someone that will represent you with your best interest at hand, who has attention to detail and will seek out the best results for you, then look no further. Caroline is the one!

Smart, Knowledgeable, Accessible
I worked with Caroline to finish my divorce after having a bad experience with my first attorney who was preoccupied and not accessible. From the beginning she explained that she only takes on cases that she can dedicate herself to fully. Not only did she meet that expectation, she went over an above and was available anytime I needed her. Her knowledge and expertise was invaluable. She is quick on her feet and wonderful about explaining all of my options and being honest with recommendations through out the entire process. She fought for me and my children and made me feel like everything was going to work out. Her ability to be kind and consolable to me while being a tough lawyer when she had to deal with my ex-husbands attorney was truly and art form. There is NO ONE else I would recommend and in fact have recommended her to others and they have been equally as pleased. Look no further, this is who you want on your side to go through one of the hardest times in your life.

I retained Caroline Johnson to assist in a very sensitive debt collection issue. Caroline was aggressive, while being professional, and kept me abreast of all pertinent findings. My case was resolved much more timely than I was anticipating, and Caroline and her firm exceed all of my expectations, from start to finish. She is an A+ attorney.

Caroline Johnson is deserving of above 5 stars.
I hired Caroline Johnson to be my divorce attorney in a very critical point in my divorce process. She remained professional and dedicated to me throughout my divorce. She was so dedicated to my case, that she worked endless hours. She always made time to listen to me and guide me . There were moments were I was completely hopeless and felt lost due to the difficult and painful process. Yet, she would always find ways to reassure me, she would do her best to represent me in the most ethical and dedicated way. But, most importantly, Caroline was extremely compassionate and truly supportive to me. She is an excellent lawyer and should be highly valued and recognized.

Aggressive, Personal, Pasionate, Assertive
"I went from every other weekend and $468 per week to a 60/40 spit and no forward child $upport." I found myself on the losing end of a bitter 3 yr custody battle for my son with a very unfavorable final judgment. Because of my poor prior representation I was left with a bad taste in my mouth for attorneys. After being extremely frustrated with my current situations I knew something had to be done. With a convincing referral from a friend I hesitantly made the call to Caroline. At our first consultation Caroline had manage to replace all my fears and anxieties with a new hope. She explained to me that challenging a final judgment was not going to be easy but after reviewing my case "we" have a good change. From that day I felt like a team was created and she actually wanted this more than I did. I highly recommend Caroline because she is very personal, and approachable. She diligently explained every step she took in my case and was very open with our probabilities of success. When we encountered road blocks she re-strategized and reassured me that we were in it to the end. The results to my case is posted at the top Thank You Very Much Caroline you changed my life

A+, Aggressive, Assertive, Accessible
I was served divorce papers and 1st hired an attorney who was not available, always had to leave messages and turned out to be less than professional. I was referred by friend who used Christen Ritchey and is partners with Caroline Johnson. My case lasted a total of almost 20 months and with 6 year old twins in the middle, a marital residence, assets and liabilities, it was to say the least, very stressful! My experience with Caroline was exceptional, she is very aggressive to the opposing party, yet remains totally professional. Paperwork, motions and court appearances were always prompt and she was always versed on the case, never brought a computer to court, she knew the case and the details from memory. If ever a phone call was made, most all of the time, she or Christen would be available without ever leaving a message and waiting for a call back. My case ended up in a 2 day trial, Caroline was great on the cross examination of all witnesses. Additionally, her professionalism with the court and the judge was impressive. With all "nasty" contested divorce cases, they are expensive and will be a drain on the finances. With Caroline and Christen the money end was not the driving force of the case, and they are very reasonable. They truly cared and wanted the best for me. In the end, the settlement was almost exactly what was proposed 20 months ago, however, during this time, several things were uncovered that most attorneys would never have uncovered had Caroline and Christen not gone the "extra mile". My advise to anybody looking for an attorney and not sure who to hire, call Caroline and Christen they will get to know you, the case, the details and are not only trustworthy but knowledgeable about Florida Law and always kept me informed of the events throughout the case. With so many things in life, and especially in Florida, one can only depend on word of mouth and somebody who used that person or company. I highly recommend this firm to represent you in family law.
