Unparalleled Legal Representation
There are, unfortunately, certain experiences that will, despite all your best efforts, lead you to the realization that you no longer have any control over your present condition. I experienced such an event during the new year of 2020. There are no words that can express the depth of pain and anguish I confronted as a result of the legal charges that were presented. Not having any prior knowledge of the criminal justice system, I consulted my corporate counsel for recommendations for representation concerning the criminal matter at hand. Orrin Johnson’s name was presented as the most knowledgeable and effective attorney in the State of Nevada. Within days of charges having been filed, Orrin immediately assessed and articulated the potential legal options that were available. Over the course of the next several weeks, a resolute approach was implemented with every available resource deployed to support the legal arguments that were to be presented to the Court in defense of the criminal charges. This particular aspect of Orrin’s professional skill and experience is to be highlighted, given the inherent difficulty and complexity in identifying and retaining qualified and reputable consultants. As the case progressed, Orrin was always willing and able to address my concerns with frank and honest assessments of possible outcomes, as well as available alternatives, in the event of unexpected obstacles. This also proved to be very important as his demonstrated understanding of the law was a source of great comfort in my managing the downside risk of an unfavorable verdict. Throughout the remainder of the year, my respect and admiration for Orrin’s legal judgement and his enthusiasm towards achieving a Not Guilty verdict were unparalleled. Without reservation, I would recommend Orrin Johnson to anyone requiring legal representation concerning a criminal matter in the State of Nevada. In my opinion, there are not enough Orrin Johnsons in the world and to have had the supreme good fortune and benefit of his legal representation makes me fully appreciate and realize that even at its darkest moments, life does present gifts of good fortune such as Orrin Johnson.

unsurpassable choice in legal counsel
Mr. Johnson has an uncanny legal mind and will not yield in fighting for the best result in your case. Most importantly I didnt feel even for a second that he didnt have time to explain what was going on or what he was doing for me. He's compassionate in his understanding of real life circumstances that may have led us astray. He's a kind man who had even checked up on me to make sure I was doing well. The result he achieved for me was better than I had hoped for. Anyone facing trouble would be foolish not to choose this man and his firm for representation.
