After spending an outrageous and unexpected six figures with Chris on a highly contentious divorce that had already dragged on for 3 years, my ex-wife made yet another unsubstantiated claim. My current wife and I were financialy tapped, barely keeping our head above water carrying the debt incurred by the legal fees and the spousal maintenance, and could spend NO more money on this. Despite already knowing our financial situation and us being very direct and up front about it, Chris convinced us it was best to have him represent me rather than representing myself, and quoted us $7-9k. Two months later, we were billed almost three times that, with absolutely no communication during or afterwards that he was going over.
While he seemed knowledgable and certainly talks a big talk filling you full of hope, Chris treats his clients as if they they are an open checkbook with a signed, blank check waiting for him to fill in a number.
He may do well for you, but you should not expect to have his full attention, nor a deep appreciation for what you're going through, and you WILL pay at exponentially more than what he quotes you.

Chris Johnson is a responsive attorney. He has over 20 years of experience. He was fairly knowledgeable.
He wasn't the best at keeping me informed and info would have come from the opposing counsel but I never heard about it for weeks sometimes.
However when I wanted to drop the case he became very vindictive, uncooperative and not very professional. I was very dissappointed by this. The case was a very simple case but it dragged on and cost me a fortune. I never thought this was done intentionally at first but at the end when Chris informed the opposing counsel of aspects of the case early on he shouldnt have, such as me dismissing it- I thought it was very unprofessional and started to wonder if the case was dragged on all along. I asked whether I could be informed before hand to keep tabs on the amounting fees but this was refused.
