Jeff seemed to be one step behind my ex spouses lawyer. I felt like I was milked for cash after answering how much I had. My ex shows up to court with paperwork already filled out ready to go to minimize costs. I am put in a room to fill out forms that takes 10 mins per form to complete, but Jeff is gone for a minimum of 1 hr at a time dealing with other clients. The longer you are there the more money you pay. Multiply your 300 per hr at 3 to 4 clients I see why he waits to give you forms. He was late to multiple meetings/appointments. He proceeded to put things on his own into the decree that were no discussed that had to be changed. Things that only he and I discussed, and only he would know, were known by my ex. For example, my extra time with my kids that was not court ordered was cutoff by my ex due to him disclosing it to the opposing attorney I was keeping track of the time to use in later court hearings. The ex disclosed that Mr. Johnson shared this info to opposing counsel and her attorney advised her to not allow the extra time. I had another attorney review my case and said there was lack of attention to detail.

I hired Jeff after becoming frustrated with my previous attorney, and I am so glad I did. Due to my ex-wife’s false allegations of family violence, I had not seen my children in over 12 months and my previous attorney suggested that the situation was hopeless and that I should simply give up the idea of spending anytime with my kids. That was not then nor ever something I would accept. I needed a change, someone who would listen to me but yet help me understand the process and the realistic part of divorce.
Once I hired Jeff, he got the wheels turning immediately and assured me that the situation was not hopeless at all. That as painful as it was to deal with alienation and lies being told to my kid’s patients would prevail. First, he won an enforcement hearing and got the judge to order my wife not to contact my employer, making my wife and her attorney taste defeat for the first time. Shortly thereafter, we had a two day trial and Jeff not only succeeded in showing the judge that the allegations of violence were false, but he won the trial, got me unsupervised access to my son’s and even got the judge to order reimbursement from my ex-wife for the money she made me waste on plane tickets during this terrible ordeal.
Jeff is very knowledgeable, as well as being detailed and prepared. Even though a divorce trial is stressful, it was still enjoyable to see Jeff objecting to my ex-wife’s lawyer’s evidence and arguments. He seemed to be operating in a higher gear than my ex-wife’s attorney.
I could spend all day saying how impressed I am with Jeff and how I recommend him to anyone going through a family law battle, but instead I’ll say this: I’ve come to consider him more than just an attorney –he is now will also be my friend.
Divorce is ugly, no matter which way you look at it. I would say that my divorce was not only ugly but war; it was more than a Jerry Springer episode, it probably was more like a season or two. But it was never about getting back at that person or even. For me and Jeff it was about the kids. All that is important is your kids. Jeff helped me with getting back to what is most important, the kids.

You don't want just an Attorney, you want someone who is kind and understanding. Just absolutely no worries and I am always worried about something. Always have good strategies and gets back you with right away if he misses your call. He always there to listen first and will then give you great advise. I'm not worried about a thing now because I know he has my back. He will also work with you even when your struggling. He is not only a great attorney; he is a great person.

Jeff is representing me in a complex divorce and custody battle. Divorce is not an easy process, but the way Jeff translates all of the complicated legal jargon into understandable English has made the whole case much easier than it would have been without him. On top of that, he always gets back to me quickly when I have a question and he does so with a smile. He is enthusiastic about my case and I am so glad to have someone like him fighting for me. Although my soon-to-be ex-husband has a very good attorney on his side, Jeff always seems to be two steps ahead in terms of strategy and I have the luxury of not worrying about getting out-lawyered. If anyone out there needs a lawyer, I absolutely recommend calling Jeff before anyone else!

I own a company doing international business and I hired Jeff to review a contract I have with an overseas supplier. After reviewing the contract, Jeff found an element in the contract that has allowed me to explore a new field of business for my company.
As great as it was to get that result, I was equally pleased with the way Jeff has handled me as a client. Not only has Jeff been able to quickly understand my needs and the nature of my business, but he has done so in a professional and timely manner. He is always responsive when I reach out to him with questions and he routinely thinks about my business 2-3 years into the future, anticipating issues that might arise.
My previous attorneys only looked at the legal aspect of my business, which I felt often left them losing the forest for the trees. With Jeff’s background in business management, he is able to give me not just legal advice but he also thinks about issues from marketing and operations perspectives as well. Quite simply, he has more tools in his tool chest than other attorneys I’ve met, and I would recommend Jeff to anyone seeking an attorney for their business.

I hired Mr. Johnson after becoming frustrated with my previous attorney. I was very overwhelmed with ongoing child custody issues following my divorce and was finding myself even more stressed because my previous attorney wouldn't respond to my phone calls and attempts at communication in a timely manner. I didn't feel like he was invested in my case and, because it my children are the most important thing in the world to me, I was very frustrated. At that time, I was recommended to Mr. Johnson by a close friend, who had glowing things to say about him. Upon talking with Mr. Johnson, I felt very relieved. I was comforted by his interest in my well-being, and more importantly, in the well-being of my children during such a stressful time for my family. He was clearly invested in helping my family and his approach to my case was well thought out and in line with my goals. I am so happy that I decided to work with Mr. Johnson, as I got a great result. I would absolutely recommend him to others.
