Excellent Communication
Simon was very reassuring to work with. He was understanding of my situation and produced fast results. He kept me on track and informed. Since he has still been readily available to answer any questions. I have and will continue to recommend his services.

Do not understand what this means.
Mr. Johnson was an absolute pleasure to work with. He took our case on a contingency basis. He was extremely generous with his time and his fees ,he is kind, empathetic and a true professional. We recommend him highly to everyone.

Highly Recommended
Looking for lawyers can be tough, but I was lucky to have contacted Simon early since he was able to help me with a variety of jobs. Every time he was highly competent and responsive. Would absolutely recommend.

Could not have been better served.
I retained Mr. Johnson's services to handle my divorce. He made me feel confident and comfortable throughout the entire process. He demonstrated the energy and the reliability I looked for. This in turn gave clarity to a very difficult time for me. I appreciated his directness and honesty.

Amazing and talented
I had retained Simon a few years ago when he was a newer lawyer with a very difficult case. He was realistic, wise, and knew how to get the job done. To this day I recommend anyone who needs a lawyer in the Cleveland area to speak with him first. He will find a way to get the job done, whatever it is you need.

Excellent service
Mr. Simon provided excellent services relating to my wife's case. He was responsive, courteous, and showed professionalism throughout the service period. Even after three years of my first services received from Mr. Simon, he continued to provide the services as and when I needed. I would highly recommend Mr. Simon for legal services in his areas of expertise.

A pleasure to work with
Simon was extremely responsive to my legal needs, and, after attending to the trust work I needed to have done, he closed on a house for me on short notice. I give him my highest recommendation.

Simon is very talented and worth it, if you are looking for a great lawyer
To say Simon W. Johnson did an excellent job is an understatement. I retained Mr. Johnson's services for a very complicated child custody battle with the State. Simon Johnson was very responsive, available and dedicated to my case. Whenever I had questions he answered them, he also explained next steps in the process. He was honest, and very easy to to talk to. The greatest accomplishment in my now closed case to date is: Simon was able to keep a delicate 3 month old out of the foster care system! Simon is truly talented and truly worth the investment when you have a long legal child custody battle ahead of you..

Responsible, reliable attorney
I would recommend this attorney to others. Although he is green, he is responsive, knowledgeable, trustworthy and reliable. He will give you sound advice, and he is reasonable and realistic, regardless of what you may want to hear. He will look at you and tell you "This is not a slam dunk case." He is an attorney who will give you a realistic prognostication of your outcome. Simon is always available by text message too, which is huge when you are litigating a custody case. He responds extremely quickly. He is collaborative, which is powerful, especially when dealing with custody litigation. He was a key variable in dealing with our GAL... I truly believe if we hadn't had such a reasonable representative, the GAL would not have been as receptive to our concerns. Additionally (and perhaps most importantly), his billing is RESPONSIBLE. He will not bill you for a minute more than he has worked for you. If anything, he has underbilled my husband for his custody case. He will let you know ahead of time: this is what this strategy will cost. Simon is not a bull in a china shop, or a hammer. He's a staid, realistic attorney who truly cares about children and their parents. He is creative with his legal strategies, and realistic with his outcomes. He under-promises and over-delivers.

Very helpful & trustworthy.
I've personally known Simon Johnson for years as a friend & attorney. He has helped me over and over just going out of his way to stand up for his client, he carrys himself properly and respects his clients issues. He has made the judicial system experience much easier and keeps the process simple and smooth. I would highly recommend Simon W. Johnson and will continue to use him in the future.
