Amazing Unemployment Advocate
Patricia was extremely helpful with helping me win my unemployment case. She was very professional, and direct. Additionally, she has great communication and responds within a timely manner no matter the time. I couldn’t have done it without her, and she made this stressful situation not as overwhelming. Would highly recommend. Thank you Patricia!!

Rock Star Lawyer
Patricia A. Johnson - From beginning to the end of my case, she was professional, helpful and exactly on point. I am so glad that I picked her and that she decided to take my case. She had my back and represented me as I would have represented myself. Five stars is not enough to express what she has performed in my case, I give her ten stars. I highly recommend her as one of the most professional lawyers that I have every experienced. A thousands time Ms. Johnson I thank you.

I strongly recommend Patricia Johnson
Patricia Johnson is an awesome attorney and advocate. I had a former employer (Grand Ledge Ford) trying to get unemployment back after being fired wrongly 2 years previous. Patricia acted on my behalf as an advocate in a telephone hearing and was excellent. She was very aggressive on my behalf and made the process very easy. She won my case for me and I would recommend her very strongly.
