Great Service Would Recomend to others
Aaron did a great job. He was easy to work with and was willing to take the time needed to make sure things were going as quickly as possible. I would recommend him to others. I could not have asked for more than the service Aaron and his firm provided.

Amazing Team!
I was recommended to Aaron after a couple not-so-good experiences with other lawyers, and I wish I would have used Aaron from the start. I had a lawsuit with an ex-business partner that they took over, and once we partnered, we finally got moving on the case and were able to successfully mediate the case after some wizardry from Aaron and Brittnie to get a response from the other party's originally non-replying lawyer. Aaron was easy to work with, very professional, extremely knowledgable and made the experience as easy as it could have been. I can not recommend Johnstun Law strongly enough. I will be using Aaron for future business needs as well.

Great business attorney!
Both as a new business owner almost 5 years ago, and as one with more experience, Aaron has shown his expertise in business law. Mr. Johnstun helped my business complete an acquisition of another business. He was very eager to help us understand all that would be involved in said acquisition. I want to be able to focus my time and energy into my business and what we're good at, not in trying to understand legal jargon. We truly appreciate Aaron's efforts in making this deal happen, as well as helping us to create essential documents like terms and conditions and employment contracts. I would definitely recommend him.

An excellent business attorney
When I had just started my business, I hired Aaron to help me with a dispute with a client that refused to pay. I've been very impressed with Aaron's expertise and high level of professionalism when it comes to business law, and over the past several years have in turn referred many of my own clients to him that are seeking trademarks or needing help setting their business up properly.

Highly recommend!
Mr. Johnstun has advised me over several business matters over the past six years and I'm always impressed with his attention to details and knowledge of additional points that factor heavily in the matter. He has resolved a very complex matter for my father so referring him to family speaks of my trust and confidence in Mr. Johnstun.

Had To Part Ways
While the office staff and Aaron were nice (showed they were interested in helping me), I had to wait days and even weeks (sending them follow up emails to communicate the sense of urgency) to get responses to my legal and billing inquiries. I reluctantly ended up having to part ways with them.

Dear Anonymous – While we regret you feel you did not have a positive experience with our firm, we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback with us. Hearing directly from our clients is the best way to learn what we're doing well and what we could do better. Due to your review being posted as "Anonymous" lacking transparency as to who you are and no specific circumstances, we can only respond and give your review the credibility of a generic anonymous post. We have reviewed our performance based on the assumption of who we believe your identity is as it relates to the time it took for us to respond to your inquiries. Our records show that each time you contacted us we always responded, within hours and consistently within one business day. We completed project milestones with similar swiftness. We also always communicated with you regularly and proactively at all times. We understand that dealing with legal issues can be stressful, and we believe that clear and timely communication is one of the best ways to minimize that stress. We regret you wish we were even more prompt. Thank you for acknowledging our kindness and interest in resolving your legal matter. We are passionate about helping individuals and businesses succeed, and we believe in treating our clients the way we would want to be treated. We hope our assistance allowed you to move forward empowered with a strong foundation of knowledge and a deep sense of certainty.
