When fighting for my child, I knew it was essential to hire an attorney, and not just any attorney, my child deserved the best. I am very thankful I was able to hire Christopher Johnsen. I am a single mom with a hectic schedule and a TON of stress. I cannot tell you enough how much he helped my family.
Christopher is the man for the job. He is very professional, a great listener, easy to talk to and always comes to court prepared, polished and on time. He is stern and articulate. You want him on your side. I could sense he is very well respected amongst his peers and for those he mentors. He has a ton of drive and passion for what he does and he truly enjoys making an impact helping others.
Client-attorney communication is key. One thing I noticed is that he will give it to you straight. I’d hire him again in a heart beat if I had to go back to court.
When fighting for your child’s best interest, it’s never worth the risk to go ProSe and you want the best. Christopher Johnsen is the man for the job. Thank you Christopher.

I initially called two other law firms in the Chicago area to help with my divorce proceedings and they were either too expensive to retain or never left me with the feeling that I would be well taken care of. I then met with Chris at his office and I immediately felt like I was in great hands as he listened to my case and explained exactly what he would do and and how to do it. I was able to erase a mistake in my past and that is something that I only trusted in the hands of Chris and his law firm. Needless to say, I'm now officially divorced. Thank you Chris for all of your help.

J. Christopher Johnsen was very professional and easy to work with. He kept me well informed and made my divorce very painless and quick. If I ever need a lawyer again I will be returning to J. Christopher Johnsen.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I have known J. Christopher Johnsen since law school. He has always exhibited the highest morals, integrity, and commitment to the profession. Not only is Christopher a knowledgeable attorney, he is also a zealous advocate for his clients. Christopher serves on the Supreme Court Access to Justice Commission and was honored in 2013 as and Advocate of the Month by Illinoisprobono.org. Christopher most recently was named as a "Rising Star" by Super Lawyers. Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. This selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. I highly endorse, J. Christopher Johnsen.
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse Attorney Christopher Johnsen wholeheartedly. We first met by chance of sharing the same office floor. He possesses energy, enthusiasm, and passion at work. I then had the privilege and luck of having Mr. Johnsen cover a matter or two for me and observed that he sharpens his knowledge of the relevant law, procedure, and local Judges' adjudication styles before moving on a matter. Most recently, I am working together on a family law matter with Mr. Johnsen and I am glad to have this opportunity to work with and learn from such a professional. He is consistently bringing the same energy, enthusiasm, passion, and mastery in this matter. He created an excellent legal strategy in this case, which speaks volumes of his mastery of law and procedure. Mr. Johnsen also has great, competent paralegal staff, whom I love working with. I highly recommend trusting Mr. Johnsen with your legal needs. As a professional, I endorse him.
