SENSITIVITY AND EXPERIENCE YOU CAN TRUST. 702-744-7429

Prior to exclusively representing injury victims, I spent 12 years defending car accidents, slip/trip and falls, insurance claims, medical malpractice and other complex litigation matters.  I was staff counsel for an insurance company for 3 of those 12 years.  My prior work as an insurance defense attorney gives me tremendous insight into accident/injury cases and a distinct advantage in dealing with insurance companies and their attorneys.

An attorney who actually wants to help people.
Mr Johnson helped me so much in 1 phone call than what my own paid attorney did for me in 4 years, Mr Johnson helped me even thought he did not take my case. How amazing to know such an attorney still exists today. He painted the big picture of where I stand now in my litigation with viable options, something my own attorney can't even give me, or at least be honest about it. It is good to know there are still good people, good attorneys, out there, there are attorneys out there who actually do want to help people, yes, even in Las Vegas. :))

Wonderful attorney
Mr. Johnson is very compassionate, caring, fair, and honest. I know my case was small, but it was important to me, and he made me feel like it was important to him too. He is very smart and every time I spoke with him he knew all the facts of my case. Mr. Johnson gave me a realistic expectation of what I could expect. I was very pleased with the result. I highly recommend Mr. Johnson and I think he is the best attorney in Las Vegas.

Amazing Lawyer!
Outstanding in every way! I have had the opportunity to work with Richard Johnson on a legal matter. He handled every detail from start to finish in an impeccable, forthright and professional manner, resulting in favorable settlement. Richard strong suits are numerous, but among those at the top of the list are strategic thinking and five star communication skills. His head is ALWAYS in the game, even if mine is spinning.

Don't miss out he is the Man!!!!
I found Richard as I really needed guidance. He is Amazing so helpful and really cares…even though I’m with another Firm. I wish I would have found Richard in the beginning of my 6 plus years of my legal case.

Mr. Johnson handled my case intelligently and with great diligence.
I feel very fortunate to have found Mr. Johnson to handle my legal need. He was referred to me from another local attorney. Right from the beginning of my experience with Mr. Johnson I felt confident with his ability to understand and guide me through the complex legal environment. Mr. Johnson has over 20 years of experience. Experience definitely matters and comes with wisdom and confidence. Mr. Johnson is very personable and he made me feel comfortable. Mr. Johnson has a private law firm which makes him available for his clients. I would refer Mr. Johnson to anybody with a legal need that requires strong representation.

Sharp, Tenacious, & Savvy
From our first phone call, I knew I'd found the right attorney to help me with a medical malpractice case. Richard Johnson's experience and expertise were evident every step of the way. He knew all the players and defense attorneys involved, told me what to expect, and was spot-on accurate every step of the way. He knew the games the opposing team wanted to play and called them on their ridiculous arguments every time. I highly recommend hiring him; he's wonderful.

Competent and compassionate
I had a previous attorney who ruined my case to the point where it seemed hopeless. Mr. Johnson was the only attorney willing to help me after so many others left me feeling at a loss of information and guidance, it was overwhelming. He was able to get the opposing council to agree to a settlement which had previously seemed impossible. He didn’t even charge me a percentage of the settlement, he realized how badly I had been previously represented and truly was very compassionate. I truly can’t thank Mr. Johnson enough.

A Qualified Professional Attorney
Mr Johnson accepted my case knowing that it would require substantial time and effort on his part to win the case. He kept me well informed and was also available for questions and advice. He remained positive through out the proceedings and made intelligent decisions regarding the case. His knowledge on when to accept an offer at the right time prevailed and we won the case. In the end, he did a phenominal job and I would recommend his services.

Great Consult
Rick gave me a great consult following an injury in a casino for which I had a claim. He admitted that I had a complaint, but he also advised me to consider the possible blow back from filing a complaint against a major casino which helped me to weight the risk versus the potential reward. I have never met Richard, but he advised me as a wise friend and not like a typical lawyer that just wanted a retainer. I am grateful for his service and would hire him in the future.

A rare find.
Almost everyone I contacted either didn't respond or said they can't help me. Richard, on the other hand, although he was unable to help me in this area, took his time to find me someone who could. Attorneys value their time above all else, so the fact that he took some of his time for me with incentive other than to help me, shows his true nature and means he is the first person I'm going to call if I need someone in his area in the future.

A Great Lawyer
We retained Mr Johnson after my wife was hit by a car while she was crossing a street. He was the best thing that could have happened to us at that time. He definitely went far above what you would expect from an attorney in handling this case and especially helping us through some hard times. He always got back to us promptly when we called or texted him, even on weekends, and he always knew the facts of our case. We cannot thank him enough for the extent that he helped us. And I would definitely recommend him to help you!

Great attorney and very good person!
Mr. Johnson is very compassionate, warmhearted, efficient, helpful, trustworthy, generous, supportive, and more ... Mr. Johnson has really sincere interest to help out people in troubles even at very short notice and even if I'm a total stranger to him, while at the same time he provides options and tries ways to save my costs. Mr. Johnson has such strong sense of justice and fairness, and I consider him a great attorney! I highly recommend Mr. Johnson to anyone!

Excellent Attorney, Highly Recommended
Attorney Richard S. Johnson is an excellent Attorney who has been not only helpful throughout my contact with him, but very respectful and timely. I was in a auto accident early August, and was struck at 100 mph by another driver on the highway who was driving recklessly. My car was totaled and I woke up in the hospital. I thank God, and It is a miracle that I am alive and walked away with no major long term injuries. I participated in physical therapy and received some treatment for whiplash for a couple months following the accident. The insurance company of the other driver was giving me the run around regarding compensation for my vehicle and injuries, so I found the need to contact an Attorney. My daughter, an Attorney in another State, researched good Attorneys for me to call and Richard was at the top of the list. I was satisfied with the customer service and level of explanation received on my first consultation, and meeting with Richard. His paralegal Andrea Viera has also been very helpful. My bodily injury case was closed in October 2015, and I received compensation for the injuries I sustained. This was much faster than I expected. I currently still have an open case for property damage that Richard is assisting me with because the insurance company for the other driver (once again) was giving me the run around, and I had been in a rental car for over two months. I am confident Richard will resolve this in a timely manner. Also, Richard has fair charges and a reasonable retainer agreement. I highly recommend Richard and his staff. They are knowledgeable, experienced, friendly, respectful, and courteous. I am wholeheartedly grateful to Richard and Andrea Viera for their outstanding support and progress thus far. I wanted to complete this review at this point, to add to the recent reviews for individuals making a determination of who to contact for future representation.

Best in The Business
I have had the pleasure of being represented by Richard Johnson on a couple of occasions. He is undoubtedly one of the very best lawyers in Las Vegas. Richard is not only intelligent but extremely knowledgeable in the legal arena. He instills confidence in all of his clients when everyone is probably more vulnerable than usual. When you have Richard in your corner you know that you will come out the winner. His interaction with opposing counsel is definitely another very strong point. He is never intimidated and holds his ground solidly. Richard is a tough lawyer but also an extremely wonderful man. He is very easy to communicate with and there is absolutely no pretense. Do yourself a favor-pick up the phone and hire this gentleman if you want to win in court. I would refer him to anyone. Barbara Strzemp

Trustworthy Auto Accident Attorney
Mr. Johnson did more for my auto accident case in 10 days than 2 different attorney managed in 18 months. He knows the claim process inside and out as he used to be an attorney for the insurance companies and his internal working knowledge was a huge help to my case. Ric outlined all options available and recommended what he thought would produce the best outcome for our particular case. Not only is he spot-on with his knowledge, he and his staff treated me with dignity and respect. Unlike many firms where after the initial intake you never get to talk to the attorney themselves, I was able to speak directly to Ric. On the rare occasions that I had to leave a message, he always returned my call within hours or the next day. I know that had it not been for Ric, the insurance company would have taken advantage of my ignorance of insurance law and vastly underpaid the claim. Mr. Johnson aggressively protected our rights and brought about a fair result and did so in a reasonable amount of time. I felt like it was a team effort and he led the team most effectively. I have recommended him to several people and would never hesitate to do so in the future. I believe him to be a very rare honest attorney.
