Todd Johnson Review
Todd is just a great attorney. He's worked on several cases for me, is always professional, attentive and most importantly, gets the job done with integrity and honesty. I'd recommend him wholeheartedly.

Strongly recommended
Mr. Johnson agreed to meet with me to discuss a discrimination case. He did so at no expense to me. He showed me how to get things going in a particular direction that would allow me to get information from my prior employer if things did not go in a direction toward litigation and actually provided the form I needed. He's extremely diverse in his practice, polite, and professional. I would highly recommend anyone consulting with this firm.

Todd Johnson-attorney I hired
If anyone is looking for an excellent lawyer I would refer them to Todd. Todd kept me informed on everything that was going on with my case. He was always avilable for any question that I had. Todd was very honest with me about my case and all the points that came with it. If you need a lawyer I would say you can't go wrong with Todd Johnson.
