Best Divorce Lawyer EVER
My prior counsel for my divorce did not have my best interest at heart. This individual even confused my case with another causing my divorce motion to almost be dismissed. After informing this individual I would be taking them to the board, they dropped all outstanding chargers. This is when we heard of State48 Law and consulted with Bryce. We were blown away and I hired immediately. I loved his tenacity, drive, and strait forwardness. He told me that my prior offers were unacceptable because it would have been determinantal to my future. He was a breath of fresh air and right away I knew he was going to fight for me and for my kids. My divorce was at the 10-month mark with nothing to show for it, no agreements, nothing when I hired Bryce. Bryce came in like Miley Cyrus, like a wrecking ball, and got everything that I originally wanted plus more to benefit myself and kids within less than 2 months. He was a shark and he stood by his commitment and word. I wouldn't have my kids if it wasn't for him and his team. I can't thank him enough - I owe him everything and will always be in his debt. Don't be stupid - HIRE BRYCE!!!!

Bryce is Your Guy
Words can't express how thankful I am for finding Bryce and using State 48 Law. I'm sure my custody case wasn't the easiest and was definitely complicated with Emergency Filings along with other things. Bryce was professional, very transparent and kept me well informed. I got custody of both my boys with the help of Bryce.

Child support/custody
I needed a lawyer immediately! I couldn't deal with my child's father and his family harassing me every time it came to my daughter; they made me feel like my concerns as a mother were ridiculous and they didn't need to respect my wishes. I came upon AVVO from my brothers recommendation. Saw State 48 law, read the reviews and decided to give them a shot. I didn't know what to expect at first. I just needed the stress to go away. Bryce and his team were amazing. They were surprisingly friendly, understanding, and genuine for a lawyer's office. They heard my situation, explained to me the paperwork/options, and it was as if the skates were on after that. They got my ex and his family to stop harassing me. Bryce didn't overwhelm me with paperwork rather just needed the facts and he took care of the work. Bryce was very efficient and diligent. He was on top of the communication with me and let me take it as slow or as fast as I wanted to. He was very professional and surprisingly kind as well. Not something I anticipated from a lawyer. I recommend Bryce for anyone, especially for those who are in need of some sensitivity in their case. My case didn't go long and nothing was a surprise as far cost, where the money was going, and into what is was being used for. I know I'm rambling, but I can't thank these guys enough. Thank you for everything.

In addition to being reputable, knowledgeable, honest and a high integrity professional, Mr. Johnson is also a kind, gracious and extremely compassionate individual. As I was preparing to confront the daunting reality of engaging in a contested divorce with young children, there was no factor more critical for me than researching, identifying and, ultimately, retaining highly competent, qualified and affordable legal representation. As I near the conclusion of this extremely difficult, arduous and challenging life experience, it is with great confidence that I can share with you that Mr. Johnson fit that bill for me better than I could have ever possibly imagined. Throughout this entire process, Mr. Johnson treated me with the courtesy and respect that you would extend a lifelong friend, and for that humble gesture I shall remain forever grateful . . .

Highly recommend
Bryce is exceptional, and I am forever grateful he was my attorney involved in keeping my young twin boys safe. We all know that being a lawyer is a lucrative profession, but I never got the feel that Bryce was simply doing it for the money. It started with care. Bryce cared on an individualized level about my case, my sons wellbeing, and my wellbeing. At no point in time was I ever left in the dark about what was going on with my case. It’s as if Bryce was always one step ahead and anticipating my needs before I even knew I had them. He handled everything in a timely manner that exceeded my expectations. My matter involved domestic violence, and it was hard for me to see my ex in the courtroom. Again, anticipating my needs before I had them Bryce was there for my personal wellbeing, made sure I was ok, and accompanied me to my car for safety, things he didn’t have to do but went above and beyond because he cared. The thoroughness and the long, hard hours he spent in preparing all documents for my case showed. As opposed to the opposing attorney, we stood far more prepared in every aspect, not to mention professional, courteous, yet confident. At mediation, Bryce helped me to achieve a plan that not only kept my sons and me safe, but also got to the crux of the matter: ensuring my ex gets the counseling help he needs. I believe Bryce has a great future, and because of Bryce’s help, so do my sons, who are my pride and joy, and I.

An absolute pleasure to work with
Bryce is a true professional, and an absolute pleasure to work with. My custody battle was an experience that can best be described as every parent's worst nightmare. Bryce, co-counsel David, and their entire staff were fantastic. Bryce was empathetic, and took time to explain my options so we could make the best choice. I really appreciate how dedicated Bryce was to my case, knowing every detail inside and out. Bryce spent many hours making sure we got every detail right as we prepared for our final trial. Bryce's hard work and dedication paid off. In comparison, we went into our final trial with a 53 page pretrial statement, over 1000 pages of evidence, and supporting testimony and documentation from the Court Appointed Advisor charged with investigating our case. The opposing counsel prepared a 7 page pretrial statement, barely over 100 pages of evidence, with the CAA recommending strong sanctions for mother's negligent actions. There are many different attorneys to choose from, but when your family's future is on the line having the peace of mind of an attorney like Bryce in your corner is a blessing. I would highly recommend Bryce Johnson for any family court issue you're faced with.
