A family member was charged with DUI after totaling my car, and we hired Mr. Johnson upon the recommendation of a family friend. He and his staff were very professional, and clearly quite knowledgeable. Our first appointment was within days of our initial call, and future phone calls to his office were quickly responded to by him or his paralegal. He handled all interactions with the court, without the need to disrupt our lives by being present.
Upon reviewing the police in-dash cam, he found what he felt would be the key in having the case dismissed. Mr. Johnson did not sugar-coat with false positive expectations; he would still have to win the battle, but did voice a very good chance for a dismissal.
My family member only had to appear for the pretrial hearing; no testimony from him/her (staying intentionally vague). Even though the arresting officer appeared and testified at the hearing, Mr. Johnson was able to artfully cross examine the officer, and used the police cam video to successfully demonstrate the reasons for why this case should be dismissed....and the judge agreed!!!
I highly recommend Mr. Johnson for any needs you are facing. Just remember, not all cases can be won....but he clearly has the skills to find you the best fighting chance.

It is my pleasure to recommend George "Buck" Johnson - a GREAT MAN, and a GREAT LAWYER!!! Mr. Johnson is an excellent attorney, and if they gave medals for lawyering he'd deserve the highest commendation medal!
From the moment I walked into Mr. Johnsons office, he was both perceptive to my needs and quick to get to the root of the problem I faced. While my case wasn’t exactly an open/close shut case and took nearly two years to resolve, Mr. Johnson and his team made me feel comfortable by continued communication and sticking to a step-by-step action plan. Most of all, Mr. Johnson wasn't afraid to think "outside the box" for my case, and helped me achieve a better resolution to my problem than I could have ever hoped for, a dismissal!
Mr. Johnson is a compassionate, intelligent, driven attorney who works hard for his clients, and that is why I give him my highest recommendation!
Thank you Buck!

I received a DWI charge several years back. I went through a couple attorneys before I was referred to Mr. Johnson, or "Buck" as he is known by, by a friend that said he was the "best attorney ever". Of course, I took that phrase with a grain of salt at first, but decided to meet with him to see if he was the kind of attorney I wanted on my case.
When I first met Buck, I immediately felt at ease. You could tell just by speaking with him for a few minutes that he was extremely knowledgeable and experienced. He is a very straight shooter and will tell it exactly how it is. And boy did he. After a quick review of my paperwork, he said it looks like it could be a tough one, but he wanted to take a closer look when there was more time.
I came to Buck with a case that looked gloomy, to say the least. It was a case that seemed stacked against me. Buck assured me not to get ahead of myself, allow him to take a closer look at the evidence, then we would proceed from there.
After reviewing the evidence, Buck recommended to me that we fight the case. Never having fought a case before, I was reluctant, but after hearing his reasoning and the confidence in his voice, I agreed.
Then the battle began. With it being the court system, it was months before the trial actually occurred.
Even though the whole process took months, I never felt like I was out of the loop. Between Buck and his assistant, Misha, there was constant communication back and forth, they answered all the questions that I had, and they were always just a phone call away. They gave me plenty of heads up if I needed to arrive at the courthouse, they advised what to wear, what to expect, everything.
As the trial neared, I became more and more nervous. I had never been to trial before. I had no idea what it would be like. But, of course, Buck called me several days before the case itself and went over exactly what to expect. He advised that I would not have to go on to the stand. Just let him take it over from there.
Then the day of the trial comes. Buck meets me in the hallway as expected. With a smile on his face, he basically says, ‘Let’s go to work’. I am still nervous, but that quickly subsided once I saw Buck in action.
Watching Buck during the case was like watching a superhero in action. He knew exactly what to do, what to say, and when to say it. It was almost unreal. I have seen those shows like “Law and Order”, but none of those attorneys even came close to how well Buck did in the trial. It was amazing seeing this man at work. The case was won purely because of the familiarity, knowledge, and expertise of Buck Johnson.
Now, I must admit, this is unfortunately not my first experience with criminal defense attorneys. However, this was by far, the best experience I have ever had with any attorney. Buck Johnson is by far the best attorney I have ever seen in action. Hiring Buck for my case was the best thing I could have ever done and it was truly an honor working with him. I would recommend him to anyone that wants to work with the best.

I was charged with a DWI back in August of 2014 and buck Johnson really helped me out. I was 20 at the time and was so worried and stressed out about the fees that I would have to pay for since I knew family members who went through the process. The messed up thing about it was that I was smoking pot not drinking when in was pulled over. Buck took my case and gave me a timeframe and his thoughts on the case. I had 2 previous lawyers who didn't believe my story and where just going to walk me through the DWI process but buck believed my story and was able to get video tapes of my sobriety test, blood work, police reports etc. Not only did buck get my DWI changed to an obstruction of the hwy but he got me unsupervised probation!!!! The process did take a about a year and a half but buck had advised me of the long process when we originally spoke ,and his assistant Msha always kept me updated on the case and arranged meetings with buck so he can answer all my dumb questions when I requested. Thanks for everything Buck !! Very grateful for your service!!

Buck was a superb attorney from start to finish. From the very first consultation, he made sure that I had realistic expectations about the DWI I was charged with. He took the time to learn about my situation and was even able to get the judges order for the breathalyzer rescinded. Buck was always prompt to answer my questions, even when they were very unique. Buck was able to negotiate an obstruction charge with deferred adjudication, the best solution considering my predicament. I would strongly recommend anyone in the unfortunate situation of facing a DWI to talk with Buck and hire him to represent you.

Buck and his office staff were kind, friendly and very professional. Emails and phone calls were answered quickly and they were great about keeping me updated with my court dates. I would recommend Buck for anybody in need.

I was arrested for a DUI three years ago in Dallas County. I'm a lawyer in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and so I was obviously concerned about the consequences. I immediately called a friend who was also an attorney in town and he suggested that I contact Buck. I did and the rest is history. Buck is extremely responsive and resolved my case successfully. He is worth every penny.

Buck was an excellent attorney in the handling of my case. I was originally charged with a DWI. Once I retained his services and he was able to gain access to the information and discovery, he acted quickly using his experience to get the charges reduced to obstruction of a passageway. A much much less serious charge. He was able to work a plea deal to where I would plead guilty to these minimal charges and only be responsible for fines, community service, counseling etc. I was more than willing to accept those reduced consequences in order to avoid the DWI conviction and all that comes with it. After months and months, which eventually turned into over 2 years of the DA never officially filing the paperwork for the obstruction, the court date came to plead guilty and accept the obstruction charge with fines, community service, counseling, etc. I arrived at the courthouse and was greeted by Buck where I waited just a short time outside of the courtroom while he went in to discuss the guilty plea with the DA. He then came out and informed me that because of the time that had went by since the original charges were filed, the DA was willing to waive all of the fines, community service, counseling, etc. giving me time served. It was by far the best result I could have possibly asked for! All I was asked to do was plea guilty in front of the judge, pay $77 in court fees, and sign some paperwork! I could not have been more pleased with this eventual outcome. The case was completely resolved at that point and I was able to leave the courthouse that day and move on with my life and no longer have to think about the case. Buck's office assistant was also great in notifying me as the months and years went by that the DA still had not filed and the appropriate paperwork. Buck himself was extremely easy to work with, explaining everything as the case went along so I understood what was happening. I would recommend Buck 10 out of 10 times to anyone charges with DWI or DUI.

I started the search for a DWI lawyer and scheduled multiple visits to different offices, Buck Johnson was the first lawyer I visited with that day, and after visiting with 3 others he's the one I chose. Buck immediately made me feel comfortable with an uncomfortable situation. He explained to me how we could beat the case, gave me realistic outcomes and reasons why he believed we had a chance to win or get an Obstruction. Buck is a straight shooter, he does exactly what he tells you he's going to do and gets the job done no matter how long it takes. Few years later he was able to get me an obstruction in my case, exactly how he said he would. At one point I still felt comfortable that if my case went to trial, we would beat it. He has plenty of experience in the Dallas courts, and I know that helped greatly, couldn't have made a better choice.

George is the best out there. His turn around time and reliability are on point. He did not back down in a difficult situation and worked diligently to help my father...which he did. My father's probation was to be extended 6 months and George prevented that from happening. We are very grateful and highly recommend George for your legal services.
