About me

Barbara Johnson-Stern is proud to be a lawyer. She works hard to continually improve the level of service and representation given to her clients.


One of the biggest and most important aspects of her work is being prepared.


“As Abraham Lincoln said it, ‘If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I’d spend six hours sharpening my ax.’ The vast majority of the work I do every day for our clients is sharpening the ax,” Ms. Johnson-Stern said. “I think it’s essential that I’m prepared so that my clients are prepared to either reach a resolution or litigate. Preparation is essential in helping clients develop goals and develop strategy for how to reach those goals.”
