Larry Johnson was a professional and well educated lawyer
Larry was an exceptional lawyer to have. He went above and beyond to not only make sure i was fully aware of the details of each step along the way, but also made me feel comfortable as we went through a personal issue. Larry was someone that took an interest as myself and my family, I was not just a client, but a person in his eyes, to me that is important, he would even call just to see how my newborn was doing. I would not hesitate to recommend Larry or use him again!

Very happy customer
I went to Mr. Johnson lost and not knowing which way to turn. After fighting with my previous employer to get paid for the hours I worked, I waited months and got no where. I met with Mr. Johnson and he helped guide me in what I needed to do. I met with him on a Thursday afternoon. Before I made it home we were in contact 3 times with updates on how everything was progressing. By Monday morning, Mr. Johnson informed me that my paychecks will be in the mail. It took him mere days to accomplish what I tried months to accomplish. I am ever grateful for his quick and professional actions in my case. Hopefully I will never have to endure this ordeal again but if I do I will be returning to him. A+++ in my book. Thank you again so much!!!

Unpaid Overtime Compensation & Retaliation Relief
Larry and his partners exceeded my expectations with how they handled my case. He kept me updated through-out every single step he took, and was always prompt with replies to any questions I had and on any updates on my case. I trusted him 100%, and he handled everything quickly with care and urgency. It ment a lot that anytime I contacted him or his partners, I got immediate responses. Larry and his partners are the first attorneys I have ever worked with, and are the only attorneys I will ever work with for employment and labor cases.

Severance Negotiation
Attorney Johnson recently helped me work through a hostile workplace situation, which was settled quickly through successful severance negotiations. A settlement would not have been possible without his sound knowledge of employment law.
