The best!
From the very beginning, Dave was very thorough in explaining the process and answered all of my questions. I didn’t have to worry about my accident and recovery once I turned everything over to him. This allowed me to concentrate on healing. He was always just a phone call or email away if I needed anything. I highly recommend him!

Really did me a solid
Dave helped me with a dispute with my insurance company. He was able to get me what was owed to me when the insurance company didn’t want to. I highly recommend Dave!

A real trial lawyer
Dave is a terrific advocate. He took my case to trial when no other lawyer would. And we won! Dave is compassionate and caring. Like me, he also grew up in the inner city as a black man and knows what it’s like to struggle. I highly recommend Dave!

Caring & compassionate
David Johnson is a great lawyer. He actually listened to what I had to say. He doesn't talk down to me and speaks in a clear language I can understand, not a bunch legal jargon. He took time to explain everything to me and made sure I understood. Also, being a person of color myself, it is great to have another person of color representing me. I am very happy with his representation.
