ABOUT ATTORNEY SASA:

Sasa arrived in the United States in 2004 with the belief that the American dream would reward hard work and persistence. After working for minimum wage for two years, Sasa saved up enough money to attend Viterbo University in La Crosse, Wisconsin. He graduated summa cum laude while working full-time to fund his education.

Sasa continued to work breaks when he attended the University of Wisconsin Law School. Yet, he still found time to do what he enjoys most: helping others resolve their problems. Sasa volunteered at the Unemployment Appeals Clinic and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program. Despite the enormous workload, Sasa earned the high grades in criminal law courses and received the highest grade of the class in Wisconsin Negligence Law.

Great service at a fair price!
It was well worth the price because I didn't have to deal with the legal system which is very confusing. Sasa was able to get the ticket greatly reduced which will save me money in the long run. The best part was I didn't have to do anything, Sasa took care of it all.

Impressive from start to finish
I was impressed by Mr. Johnen and his office from start to finish. While I was in the process of researching potential traffic attorneys to retain in Wisconsin, I received a letter from Mr. Johnen proactively reaching out to me (excellent and timely marketing, I must say). Mr. Johnen always responded to me within minutes, was expert at understanding and arguing my case, and received a favorable outcome. He has my highest recommendation, both as a lawyer and a businessman.

Speeding ticket
Sasa and his team are amazing!! They took care of everything from start to finish all I had to do was send them the information for my speeding ticket and then 3 months later everything was resolved as we discussed. They have a platform that allows you to communicate thru email so no phone calls or anything..it’s extremely efficient and I would recommend them to anyone!!

Avoided license suspension for speeding
Got a speeding ticket that would've resulted in automatic suspension of my license. He was upfront and honest about my situation and his prediction of the result became reality! I didn't lose my license and the fine was lowered. His fee is more than reasonable, especially for the service you get. I'll be recommending him with total confidence to friends and family.

Speeding Ticket Reduced
I had a good experience with Sasa Johnen after asking him for help reducing my speeding ticket to an infraction that didn't give me points. It was clear to me what would be happening and on what timeline and he successfully argued my violation down.

Hired 3 times in last 4 years and came through each time. He is the best!
He was able to get my recent ticket of speeding 16-19 mph over reduced to equipment violation of defective speedometer. Well worth the fee he charges. He has helped me 3 times now. Very impressed with his service.

Speeding Ticket
Mr Johnen was able to get my 18 MPH over speed limit ticket reduced to a faulty speedometer. Saving me higher insurance, points, and from having issues with my work and CDL license. All while not having to appear in court.

Attorney Johnen is the absolute best person to contact if you get a traffic citation. He was able to appeal my case, get my license points reduced from 4 points to 2 points, and also reduce the price of my ticket! He is the great at what he does… I will not hesitate to recommend him to my family and friends… And that goes for you too reading this review!

10/10
I hired attorney Johnen to defend a speeding ticket on the highway I received. I paid the fee (very reasonable) and they reached out some months later to let me know the ticket was reduced to a non moving violation. This is saving me long term in insurance premium raises and less points on my record. His office made this very smooth with little to no communication required along the way.

Made It Easy
After never having a ticket, it finally happened. Johnen made the process so easy and answered all of the questions I had. He managed to get my citation charge reduced and because of his help I avoided suspension and points and all for a reasonable price. He made a scary experience easier to manage. Definitely would recommend.
