I went to law school to add intellectual capital to businesses. After graduating from law school with honors and a distinction in transactional skills, I worked in the Legal Depratment at Papa John's and with the legal department at Louisville Slugger before going into private practice. In private practice, I focused on business, estates, and divorce. We created legal technologies to help underserved populations receive valuable legal work, and I focus my day to day practice on helping small businesses and entrepreneurs. We integrate legal technology with business savvy to become trusted advisors to our clients.

Go-to business contract attorney
I've been working with Mr. JB Johnson for several months on business contracts, e.g. Operating Agreements & NDAs, and have only good things to say. He is extremely professional, motivated, and knowledgeable. If he does not know the answer, he makes sure to find out. Although very busy, he always takes the time to explain and answer any questions I have. Bottom line: highly recommended.

Professional, Courteous, Knowledgable Attorney
Mr. Johnson represented me in trying to obtain back child support. My case was very tricky and complicated. He was kind to work with during a time when no one else involved in the situation was very kind. He was thorough in the filings he prepared on my behalf. I felt like he truly listened to me when I needed to communicate regarding my case without talking down to me, as some attorneys do. I would recommend Mr. Johnson for your legal needs.

James Brandon, Attorney
The extraordinary representation that I experienced from Mr. James Brandon Johnson, was unparalleled to any prior legal representation I have experienced. He provided articulate, methodical and conscientious expertise in handling the complexities associated with my accident related circumstance. I am from TX and he was highly recommended, so word travels far and fast. He went above and beyond my expectations. An ethical, busy attorney is difficult to find, so I consider myself fortunate that he accepted my request for representation. I only wish that more attorneys personified his ambitions toward their clients.
