Professional Honest and Caring
Johnny Sorenson helped dispell some stereotypes I had about lawyers. From day one Mr. Sorenson had my family's best interests at the forefront of he and his teams mind. It was never about a paycheck. They cared about us as people. He was always timely with relaying pertinent information and always kept us in the "loop". He and his team would routinely reach out just to check on my family's well being and if we needed anything. Johnny Sorenson is a hell of a lawyer but he's an even better person and family man. I'm thankful that he took our case but I'm even more thankful that he turned out to be a better person than what was advertised. Would definitely recommend.

If you need a law team, this is the place!
Johnny and his team helped me and my husband during a really hard time. We were hit by a drunk driver and didn’t know where to turn to help with all of our medical bills and being out of a car. We were lucky to know someone who works for Johnny who was able to provide us direction. We are grateful for this team who helped us get a settlement and made it very easy and stress free. No one ever plans on needing a lawyer but if you do, he is the one to go with. Thanks again!

Wonderful
Johnny and team were exceptional. I was referred to their firm after my car accident. From the moment I met them, I knew I was in good hands. Each associate that I talked with were very polite and professional. They took care of everything in a timely manner. I would Highly recommend them. As a matter of fact, my friend who came with me a few times to the office, said if she ever needed a lawyer she would call them.

Compassionate legal experts
I was especially fortunate to have been referred to The Sorenson Law Firm after a serious burn injury. Having limited to no experience with lawsuits and lawyers, I was unsure of how to proceed with any type of litigation against a large corporation. Johnny Sorenson, Matthew Nicely, and the rest of the team put my concerns to rest because of their decades of experience working with large corporations - as well as smaller businesses and individuals such as myself. They were professional, helpful, and thorough in handling all aspects of my case. Early on, their efforts allowed me to focus on my recovery, and I could rest knowing they were working diligently on my behalf. As the case progressed, they worked assiduously to depose all necessary personnel, request document after document, and discuss each and every angle of my case. Solely due to their efforts, I had a favorable outcome and am incredibly grateful for their hard work and relentless advocacy on my behalf.

One Honest Lawyer
I would like firstly to give high appreciation to all the front desk staff that I had the pleasure of dealing with, but especially to Marie with whom I interacted the most. Secondly I would highly recommend Johnny Sorenson to any and everyone who might want a highly successful lawyer who actually cares about his clients. Seldom today have I encountered anyone like Johnny who treats his clients like family and means it. As someone who has interacted with lawyers on a daily basis all of my professional career, I can unequivocably state that they don’t come any better than Mr Sorenson Esq.

Excellent, tenacious advocates!
I was referred to Johnny Sorenson by my estate planning attorney to represent me as plaintiff in a personal injury case involving significant damages. Johnny sat in on all the major meetings and stayed informed on everything, while his able associate Matthew Nicely literally lived with every aspect of this case for its two and a half years' duration of detailed and lengthy filings, depositions, phone conferences, correspondence, etc. Together they provided outstanding representation, were very pleasant to work with, and moved the case forward to an eventual resolution which exceeded my expectations. I could not be more pleased with their work and appreciative of having been referred to them, and am happy to recommend them highly.

Amazing Mentor & Friend
I worked for Johnny for a number of years and he was an amazing mentor and great friend. I left the firm to move back to California, but would beg him to take me back if I ever returned to Arizona. Johnny works hard and cares about his clients; I would hire him in a second! Miss everyone at Sorenson Law Firm!

Corporate defense case
Johnny Sorenson and his team aggressively and successfully defended my corporation in a jury trial. It was a very complex situation requiring legal brains that can think in a multi-dimensional manner. Johnny and his team were able to do that, and then some! The Jury was able to follow and understand the data Johnny presented which was important. Just as critical, they quickly recognized the kind of person he is. When one is principled and honorable in their own personal life, it’s particularly apparent in a courtroom fighting against deceit and fraud. He was tough, the Jury saw the truth, and my corporation won.

Highly Recommended
Johnny Sorenson represented me with motor-vehicle accident. Mr. Sorenson made the process extremely easy for me while I focused on getting better. In addition, my vehicle was only a year old and he was able to obtain some compensation for the diminished value. I would highly recommended Johnny Sorenoson and The Sorenson Law Firm because they go above and beyond of what is expected and helped me in my time of need.

The Top in Arizona
Johnny Sorenson is an exceptional lawyer and person and was there in every way possible when my family was in need of legal representation and in an astronomical amount of debt. After a family member had been in a life-altering car accident, he made sure that we had to worry about nothing else but each other. He should also be noted as an overall exceptional person. I will always have the pleasure of recommending him to any one I know in need of legal services.

Exceeded Expectations
The Sorenson Law Firm represented my family with an accident / injury case over the course of a year. Johnny and Matt were friendly, professional and pleasant to work with in this unfortunate situation of ours. They worked on resolving our medical bills, employer insurance, and representation all over the course of a year while keeping us well informed and up to date. They listened to our needs and wants and I really appreciate how good they were at understanding what we wanted and then explaining to us what our best options were. Working with the Firm was an entirely pleasant experience from beginning to end because of their true commitment to the client. They were honest and direct with their advice and counsel. I feel very fortunate to have had them working for us and they far exceeded our hopes and expectations in their services, time and settlement! Thank you Sorenson Law Firm!

So lucky to have the whole Sorensen team behind us!
We were so grateful to have the Sorenson Law Firm representing us in a liability case involving the actions of our minor son. It was a frivolous lawsuit filed by greedy parents, but had the potential to become very ugly, expensive, and high-profile at his high school. When the case started, Johnny and Matthew did a fantastic job of explaining the plaintiff's case against us and letting us know what to expect. They never made any wild promises, but reassured us that the truth would come out and that we were in good hands. As the case progressed, and the plaintiff's attorneys resisted producing any evidence to back their claims, the team kept us informed of all progress (or lack thereof). When miscellaneous emails and court notices would appear, they always took our frantic phone calls to explain and calm us down. The case was settled under even better circumstances than we could have hoped. The plaintiff's attorneys stalled the process at every opportunity to drag the case out for almost 2 years. It was Johnny and Matthew that kept after them, requesting evidence and updates, pushing for the case to progress, and ultimately led to the plaintiff agreeing to settle. We truly feel fortunate to have had the Sorenson Law Firm represent us in this case. We felt that they understood our situation and let us know that we weren't terrible parents because our son had gotten in a bit of trouble. Thank you, Johnny and Matthew, for everything you have done for us!

"I am pleased to write this endorsement concerning the legal abilities of Johnny Sorenson. He truly is one of the best all-around attorneys I have ever met. I have practiced accident law for 48 years, and I have met many lawyers, that are also excellent and seasoned trial lawyers. If I were in a serious accident, I would choose Johnny Sorenson as my own personal lawyer. I know I would probably get a recovery in the top 1 - 2 percent results. I would also get the backup help of his excellent seasoned trial lawyers that are a part of his own law firm. I run a group of approximately fifty (50) law firms that all practice in different areas of law. They all know of Johnny’s brilliance, willingness to help other attorneys, common sense, fortitude to take the tough cases, kindness, plus other qualitites that all make him a true “Lawyer’s Lawyer.” Johnny runs his entire law firm efficiently and for the best interest of his many clients."
