The Needle in the Haystack
I've (regrettably) been involved in some litigation during my career and, hence, have had the opportunity to work with a diversity of attorneys in different specialties, different locales, and different levels of experience. Without exception, Chad Johnson turned out to be the most competent, forthright, knowledgeable, and supportive throughout the litigation process -- even more impressive in light of his relative youth. Chad represented me as the Plaintiff in a construction-defect case that arrayed his talents against three other parties, each with their own attorneys. From the start, it was obvious that Chad's capabilities far exceeded that of our adversaries -- including Defendants, their attorneys, and insurance companies. Most critically, at every stage in the legal process (from initial filing to ultimate resolution), Chad always seemed two steps ahead of our adversaries. I am very thankful for his tremendous support and the positive outcome.

I HIGHLY recommend Chad!
My wife and I hired Chad to help us through a painfully complicated construction defect case that took nearly 2 years to settle, and we were incredibly impressed with him throughout. Not only did we ultimately reach a positive settlement, but he was unbelievably thorough, knowledgeable, flexible, available, and pleasant to work with all throughout. This was the first (and hopefully last) lawsuit that we have been apart of, and knowing that we could absolutely trust Chad and that he had our backs made all the difference. I can't say enough positive things about our experience.

Home Owner
I hired Johnson Law Firm to handle a dispute of a new home construction claim. Chad Johnson himself represented us specifically. I was impressed with his desire to resolve our issue at the lowest level possible before spending money with his firm. Chad gave us at least an hour of consultation ahead of signing us up for a retainer. Once contracted, Chad was attentive to detail, a great negotiator, he listened intently, and resolved our case favorably before needing litigation. I would recommend Johnson Law for any construction/ real estate needs.

Major Construction Defect & Foundation Suit
When we reached out to Chad for a meeting we were in a panic as our largest investment was showing some serious issues. With Chad’s help we scheduled engineers, inspectors, and other experts in the construction field to see what exactly we were dealing with. He was great at explaining the process, reassuring us when things seemed to take a long time, and keeping us updated. Chad and his associate were invaluable in walking us through a difficult and time consuming legal process. Ultimately, we feel as though we reached an equitable resolution which would not have been possible on our own.

Construction Defects Attorney
The group at Johnson Law helped us navigate our way through a tough foundation/structural issue with our home. They were communicative throughout the process and helped us come to a resolution with the builder in our case. The timeline that they laid out at our initial meeting was one that turned out to be a reality for our case which was helpful. Whenever we had questions that needed to be answered they were quick to get back to us and helped us understand different aspects of the litigation process, thus putting our minds at ease.

Interview Chad before you make your decision
When building a home, the contractual side can be daunting and intimidating for the home owner especially if they have not been through the process before. I interviewed a few attorneys who practiced construction law – side note: my recommendation is to avoid contract lawyers, focus on construction law practitioners. Of those I interviews one wanted a retainer before speaking with me, another commented my contract seemed pretty good, and the last confused me seemingly indifferent. However, Chad, fit me into his crazy schedule, and immediately reviewed the contract, guided me through it, and pointed out the good, bad, and ugly. Being very familiar with construction, he was able to explain important "construction" aspects of the contract in a way I doubt the general contract attorney could. In the end, I felt fortunate to have had his counsel and would highly recommend him to homeowners who wish to build. rebuild, or even just remodel.

Excellent service
Chad is organized, well spoken and delivers very professional service. When you hire a lawyer you want one that will tell you like it is - NOT what you want to hear. The former saves you money and the latter one costs you money. Chad is no stranger to the truth. He will shoot you straight. He, nor the additional lawyers at his firm, are afraid of hard work and collectively they carry a significant amount of knowledge.

Great experience
Chad and his team were wonderful. We were reluctant to hire a lawyer but after our experience, we just wish we had done it sooner! They were honest and compassionate and helped us reach the best possible outcome in order to put a bad experience behind us!

Knowledgeable Experts
After attempts to work with our builder to remedy our new home damage, we found ourselves in need of legal representation. Having never experienced the need for legal support, we found Johnson law through review. Johnson law was professional, thorough, easy to work with, extremely knowledgeable, with deep professional expert connections. Their entire team was available to walk us through the process, answer any questions, and valued us with frequent updates through the process. If you have need in the construction defect category, Johnson Law is a name we highly recommend!

THE BEST lawyer on the front range for HOA disputes
I'm giving and enthusiastic 5-star review for Chad W. Johnson, LLC. We contacted Chad after an abandoned, improperly decommissioned sprinkler system on HOA common property suddenly came on, stayed on all night and flooded three of our condos. After our HOA threatened to withhold repairs and not compensate us for our lost property and income as a way to extort us into signing a creepy liability waiver they cooked up that took away all of our rights and blamed us for the debacle, we sought legal help and found Chad Johnson. Chad's quick advice explaining what we were legally entitled to and how to deal with our HOA was absolutely pivotal in our ability to get the HOA to drop their stupid waiver nonsense, agree to pay for repairs in full and commence with them immediately, like they should have done in the first place, under our Declarations. Chad was a great communicator, helpful, whip-smart and truly cared about our plight. We will definitely use him again for our next HOA calamity, and recommend him highly to others.

Excellent Representation
Chad did an exceptional job at representing my husband and me, winning our construction defect suit. We lost our home to a forest fire and then to a contractor who took our money and walls that weren't straight, foundation showing in rooms, work that was never finished and a lot of things we would not have known about if it weren't for Chad and the expertise he brought. When it came time for mediation Chad was more than ready and we had an outcome that provided us more than enough money to fix our home and be compensated for the inconvenience. Chad is honest, professional and goes above and beyond.

Kaiser vs Steiger
Chad was fantastic for our family in a difficult situation. He reversed the court's order on fees so that no fees were assessed against us, he negotiated a settlement for thousands less than the court ordered cost judgment and precluded the plaintiff from filing an appeal or otherwise suing anyone for this mess again by negotiating that into the settlement agreement (potentially saving us tens of thousands in future attorney fees).

A excellent lawyer
Mr. Chad was very responsive to our needs. The fact that he drove from Denver to Greeley to review our problem first hand was amazing!. His knowledge is excellent and his ability to explain to us in terms that we can understand is a great attribute and most appreciated. He is excellent in always communicating with us and always instills a feeling of honest concern about our case while taking the time to explain all of our options and listening to any questions we may have. For anyone looking for a lawyer you would be well served to talk with Mr. Chad Johnson as his knowledge and great integrity well give comfort to you during what can be very intimidating circumstances.

New Home Construction Dispute
On July 22, 2013, we met with Chad Johnson to discuss a situation whereby a contractor had substituted inferior quality windows for the windows specified in the contract. The contractor's position was that the substituted windows were equal to those he had installed. Chad quickly confirmed our assertions. While we had come to an impasse in our communications with the building contractor, we discussed with Chad contacting the developer of the property, a person who we had a personal relationship with. Chad agreed that we should seek resolution with the developer before continuing on with legal steps. The developer quickly agreed with our position and the matter was resolved. In addition to the approximate one hour that we spend with Chad in his office, Chad reviewed the agreement that we had been presented with by the developer and made recommendations. Chad refused any payment for the services that we received from him and his office as the matter had been resolved expeditiously. We certainly would recommend Chad Johnson and the Nelson Law Firm.
