A Man of Integrity and Action
I have had the pleasure of knowing Andrewe Johnson for over 20 years. Andrewe is one of the brightest individuals I have ever known. On top of that, his integrity is second to none. Andrewe assisted me with a difficult situation with an employer who was withholding commissions upon my resignation. Andrewe's swift action prompted the employer to settle the disagreement immediately, paying out all commissions owed. Andrewe was worth every penny I paid him. He was available whenever I needed him, and he made me feel more than just a client. He is an asset to the profession of law, but more importantly, to his clients!
