Great Attorney! Very Pleased! 5 Stars!
David Johnson won my case and I am very pleased with his attention to detail and communication. He was very organized and very professional and I am very happy with the deal he got me in my divorce case. I would Highly recommend him to anyone who needs a good attorney. I would use him again but I will never get married again! Seriously, he was the best attorney!

Amazing person and attorney!
I have had an ongoing child custody case for 6 years now. Just recently I have come across David, unfortunately he is located 3 hours from the district court my case is in. However, that has not steered him away from helping me with over the phone consults regarding my case. He has gone above and beyond my expectations in providing me with the information i needed, as well as plainly explaining situations and scenarios of my case so that i could understand what exactly is going on and how I personally need to go about handling it. No, I have not gotten the pleasure to meet David in person yet, but from the amount of time I have spent talking with him has me convinced he is the best attorney to handle something like my case. There has not been a single time that he didn't answer the phone when i called, and knew exactly who I was by the time we had our second phone conversation. I am very impressed with his work ethic as well as his personality because he will put himself in your shoes to be able to give you the best possible legal advise that he can. I am definitely looking forward to more help from David, and possibly retaining him as an attorney if possible in the future (the 3 hour drive may be the only issue at hand with being able to hire him). I will definitely recommend David to anyone I know seeking legal advise on any matter because I feel confident that he can help anyone with any legal issues they may have, and if he doesn't have the answer right away he will get the answer and get back with you in a very timely manner. All around great guy and great attorney in my opinion!

We've never needed a lawyer before, and really didn't know what to expect. David made everything so easy and was so helpful. If I had any questions he didn't hesitate to answer or got right back with me as soon as he had the chance. He is very proffesional and will get things done in a timely matter. I HIGHLY recommend him for any legal help you may need.

Highly Recommend!
We hired David to help us with visitation issues that developed after my husband's wife remarried. He is a very empathetic attorney and made it clear he doesn't take just any case, just the ones he believes are in the right and need his assistance. He is very, honest, knowledgeable, upfront, and will not sugar coat the likely outcome of the case. We felt his billing was very fair. It was so nice to actually find a caring competent attorney in this day and age. We thank David so much for helping us resolve the issues at hand and to help bring peace to our family.

Very highly recommend!
From my first meeting with David, it was clear that he had my best interests in mind. He is both knowledgable and professional, and has always promptly responded to any questions and concerns I had along the way. My child custody case had been an almost year and a half of total nightmare due to the ludicrous behavior of my ex-wife and her seemingly incompetent attorney. However, during that whole time David has been patient and reassuring and I felt as though he worked on my case as if it were his own case. David is a passionate advocate and I'd recommend him to anyone.

Caring and Concerned
It feels good to know that there are lawyers that are willing to go the extra mile while still keeping the person first, and not the dollar. David has helped me in legal situation that I had and worked hard to helped me to resolve it. I will recommend him to anyone

Highly Recommeded
Since Dec 2013, I've been dealing with a really nasty custody case. The overall process has been extremely stressful & very frustrating for my family & I. I hired David to represent and assist me with my child custody case. Prior to David, I hired two different attorney's that were not productive, informative, attentive to my case & never returned phone calls. In both occasions leaving me feeling overwhelmed & alone in this process. In contrast, David has been very professional, knowledgeable, helpful with my concerns, and my many legal questions. So far he's been fantastic and very patient in walking me through every stage of my case. David has been attentive to my case and does not let a day go by without returning a call or e-mail. David is definitely making what seems to be an already painful and frustrating experience for me, to a much more smoother and tolerable situation and I am so grateful to have him on my side. Although we're still going through the custody process, I am confident that he make light of this messy situation. He is such a blessing. Thank you David!

Simply the Best!
David is very knowledgeable and gave me great advice. He was always there for me when I needed him. I knew I could trust him with my information and with the information he gave me. I would refer him to anyone, I'm so happy with the outcome. He was great!

All around great guy! Was very easy to communicate with! Always felt comfortable and well taken care of! Would highly recommend his services. He made it very easy for us to prepare for court! Walked away from court with the best possible turn out and all because of David Johnson!

Excellent representation in a hearing regarding long-distance parenting time. Impressed with his preparedness and ability to communicate the important issues. Quality of service is exceptional and would highly recommend him. I have had other attorneys represent me and he is by far the best!
