Top Teir Criminal Defense Lawyer
I approached Mr. Johnson when I charged with three potential felony convictions. I had everything on the line between my education, reputation, and career goals. Not only did Eric provide insight to the criminal defense process, but also reduced my stresses greatly with his confident demeanor and advanced knowledge of law. I was able to complete a diversion program that lead to zero convictions. I would recommend Eric to anyone. This man understands the value of quality defense which resulted in a second change for me. Mr. Johnson is the real deal.

Miracle Man
When I visited a local Monroe attorney for help getting a felony plea set aside, the man said, "You need Eric Johnson in Minden." He was right. Not only is my felony literally gone, my record will be completely clear in a few more months. Eric really pulled off a miracle for my family and me.

Would hire this attorney if I was guilty
I'm going to be as fair as possible with this review. First of all Eric Jhonsonis one heck of a lawyer.Eric is constantly going to seminarson the latest trial techniques as part of his ongoing training and he is well-connected to cut a deal. If I were guilty he would be the first man still today that I would call.however I was not guilty. When I hired Eric I told him that if they don't drop charges we fight. Apparently His idea of a fight and my idea of a fight is two different things. Before pre-trial I told Eric I would not ple but at pre-trial against what I wanted he presented me with a plea agreement. I said no. And so began a two-year ordeal of draging my wife and I through hell.. In and out of court every month or every other month it was endless at the cost of thousands of dollars of lost wages to me. And Eric didn't seem to care. Then finally Some two years later came the day I was supposed to get my trial. Moments before we were to go before the judge he yet again presents me with the same plea deal that I had said no to at pre-trial some two years earlier.I said no once again. Then he plays on my wife's emotions stating that the judge said he was going to find me guilty end put me in jail for six and no testimony had been head yet ( this was stated apparently in the judges meeting )My wife was my only witness and he got her so upset that there was no way she could testify and only given me a few seconds to make a decision. In the end I made a plea costing me thousands of more dollars and I record that I did not deserve . So if you are truly guilty this is the lawyer to have he will get you the best deal possible. However if you are truly innocent he will never take it all the way to trial. it will always be another continuance another plea agreement until he has you so broke and so frustrated that you're forced into doing what he wants to do.
