Client
Conrad Johansen is an amazing attorney. He helped our family out immensely with a remodel job that went bad. He is organized, on top of details, honest and up front, and explains the legal process along the way. My husband and I were constantly impressed with his work. With his experience and knowledge we were able to get out of a messy situation. We are also more knowledgable on how to deal with contractors and understand the ins and outs of contracts. We would highly recommend Conrad Johansen.

Excellent Job
At all times kept me informed of both positive and negative changes and the effects of each with recomandiations of how to proceed. Very helpful in keeping me focused on the main issues and helped me understand that some differences are not worth litigating. Conrad provides the advantage you need.
