Ellis Johnston, Criminal defense Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
John Lemon is a bright, no-nonsense, dedicated criminal defense attorney. And he gets great results at both the trial and appellate level. Sometimes at the same time. In the middle of a two-month RICO trial in which Mr. Lemon ultimately convinced a jury to acquit his client of the most serious charges, he was given a day off from trial, went to the Ninth Circuit and argued a prosecutorial misconduct issue from another trial so well before the full court en banc that the government felt compelled to ask the court to reverse his client's conviction right after argument. Good stuff from a great attorney.
Knut Johnson, Federal crime Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
John is an elite lawyer who can defend any case. John and I represented a client together in a difficult and complex case. His energy, creativity, and legal instincts were first rate. He and I also represented co-defendants in a very difficult and complex RICO trial. Throughout a five week trial, John's unending energy, creativity, and legal skills were an example to the rest of us. I would trust him to represent someone I love.
