Matthew was an awesome attorney he worked really hard on my case and got back to me as quickly as he could. Since the beginning he was upfront honest and got straight to the point truly was a pleasure to work with. In the end I was happy with the outcome. Couldn't have hired a more better attorney to handle my case I would recommend him to anyone!

Matthew Johnson is an excellent attorney. I would highly recommend hiring him for any family court issues you may be facing. He recently represented me in a post-divorce child placement case. He is extremely knowledgeable on the laws and the factors that the court considers when investigating and amending a placement schedule. I originally retained him when my ex filed a motion for equal shared placement (7/7 all year) after refusing to agree to the revised schedule I proposed. We had a 9/5 schedule in my favor that had been in place for over 8 years. During the family court process, my ex amended his motion to request primary placement (11/3 in his favor). Matt never waivered in his confidence in our position, even when I would get shaken in the process. He always used "we" and "our" when referring to the strategy and options to pursue, as he was truly invested in getting the best outcome for me and my children. He always provided me with an honest assessment of the options and was always well-prepared and extremely responsive. I've seen other attorneys become aggressive in court, but he never had to be. He is extremely articulate and was able to communicate our position and the facts of the case calmly and confidently. Although, I knew if the case continued further, he would have fought wholeheartedly. Thankfully, we settled with a schedule that matched the initial proposal I made to my ex before he took me to court (8/6 during school in my favor and 7/7 in the summer) . The court recommended slightly less time for him (9/5 in my favor with an additional weekly dinner with him and 7/7 in the summer). This was an extremely stressful and painful process, but I am very thankful I had Matt on my side. He is worth every dollar. Thank you, Matt!

I trust Attorney Johnson as a solid choice for family law and other related matters in the Southeast Wisconsin, specifically Racine, community. I have referred potential clients to him, and they have been more than satisfied with his work.
