Great Law Firm / Would Highly Recommend!!!
Derren Johnson’s office was always kind and very receptive. She would promptly answer any questions I had and was always courteous, and understanding in navigating this journey. I would highly recommend Ms. Johnson’s law office to meet any/ all needs and/or to consider any options you may have when considering bankruptcy. Ms. Johnson has been handling bankruptcy law for many years and is well versed in her practice and in meeting the needs of her clients. Again, I would highly recommend!!!!

I am very pleased!
I thank God that I used Derren Johnson!! I had to sit awhile and listen on the call to others and there was lawyers, that was not prepared, that had nothing ready, and that new nothing about their clients! Derren Johnson new everything on me, had everything the trustee needed, and was very prepared. Their was another client as well for her that she had that was perfect. It seemed like everyone else had to be pushed back because they didn't have one thing or another except Derrens clients.

If any aspect of a Chapter 13 can be pleasant...
If anything about a Chapter 13 bankruptcy can be pleasant, working with Ms. Johnson's office has to be it. I found the office folks were always willing to answer any question or concern I may have had, being nothing but professional and timely. I felt well represented throughout this process. I appreciate Ms. Johnson and her staff.

Experienced and Caring
Derren and her office helped me when I was at my lowest point. I was able to save my house, car and dignity. Her staff was very knowledgeable and all questions were answered in a timely matter. I was especially pleased when it came time for court - I sat through other clients with their attorneys and they were all lacking documentation needed. When it came time for me, my case had everything required. You get what you pay for and I am extremely pleased I hired Mrs. Johnson!
