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.

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.

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.

Chad has extensive knowledge in legal matters involving construction defects and real estate disputes. His diligence in handling client matters has earned him an impressive reputation for excellence within the legal community where he commands the respect of his fellow attorneys. I endorse Chad and do not hesitate to refer clients to him.
I have recently had some challenges with a home renovation. My husband found Chad's information online. We called him up and left a message, and he immediately called us back. He provided us great advice and did not charge. With his guidance, we feel we are on the right track. As a fellow attorney, I appreciated Chad's professionalism in getting back to us right away and providing us advice that was at no-charge with a cost-effective plan for moving forward. While we still haven't taken any specific actions yet, knowing we had good options made us feel less victimized in what has been an otherwise frustrating experience. Thank you, Chad!
