"Dale Johnson provided timely updates on the case status and provided adequate time and thorough and detailed options for consideration in making important decisions. Dale and his team of staff were available to meet my needs and were very caring and responsive to my concerns."

Dale Johnson was highly recommended. He told me he was an excellent negotiator. He seemed arrogant, but told me in no uncertain terms what the court would grant in alimony and settlement and it was a number I could live with.
Once hired, Dale refused to negotiate with the other party, conducted depositions, and insisted we go to trial, even though I asked him repeatedly to negotiate.
A few days before the trial, the other party made an offer with alimony 1.5 time more and considerably longer than what Dale told me we’d get in court. It also left me with all the debt. When I told him to negotiate, he refused to negotiate anything substantial and pressured me to accept the offer outright. When I reminded him of his original assessment he danced around it and again pressured me to accept. I was in shock and did so.
Dale was very expensive, misled me as to what to expect, overestimated his skills, and utterly failed to deliver on his obligation to vigorously represent my interests.
It is my opinion that Dale Johnson did NOT live up to his obligation to represent my interests, even when I told him directly to do so.
