Carin represented me in a recent dependency court matter in Sonoma County. Carin was responsive, creative, adaptable, and extremely intelligent in the way she handled my case. Although my case did not go to trial, I have no doubt in my mind it could have if my council was not as skilled and knowledgable as Carin. Dependency law is highly specialized, and Carin is an expert. Carin always took the time to answer my questions and explain the process in detail. She came to all proceedings prepared and having done any applicable research into case law. Carin had a plan and strategy from the very beginning and was prepared for multiple contingencies. Carin's partner Peter Johnson assisted me in minor criminal proceedings, and their coordinated approach was highly beneficial and streamlined communications. Peter was excellent to work with as well. Last but not least the billing was exceptionally fair and her services were worth every cent.
I cannot overstate what an exceptional job Carin did on my case.

I hired Carin after I had some issues with CPS. Carin was straight forward and honest. She worked very hard to get the situation resolved. Carin was always available. I never felt lost or helpless. She fought hard for me and my children. And if it wasn't for her and her team. I would not be spending the Holidays with my children. She will always hold a very special place in my heart. I hope one day we can come together to make the world a better place.

Carin Johnson was actually recommended to me by my court appointed attorney in Napa county because of her experience with clients that have been recommended to be placed on the Child Abuse Central Index (CACI). In this case, the establishment and nuturing of prior relationships was necessary. Carin was familiar with the players involved and was able to advocate sucessfully on my behalf. There were extenuating circumstances that helped to disprove all claims made by CPS. It took some time for those facts to reveal themselves. Carin proposed a strategy that proved wholly successful and resulted in a complete dismissal of the case. Carin was attentive to my needs and she was sensitive to the facts surrounding my case. The staff at Johnson & Johnson were also very attentive and stepped for a couple of the hearings. I would highly recommend Carin's service when there is an issue with juvenile dependency law.

Carin Johnson is a EXCELLENT lawyer!! I was falsely accused of a terrible allegation. I had 3 lawyers before Carin that did absolutely nothing to litigate my case and take it on! The allegations eventually became a vicious cycle that got worse with time. Unfortunately, I was stuck in nightmare that I could never wake up from. I felt like there where vultures attacking me left & Right due to these allegations. After 2 years I found a National Organization for the falsely accused. They referred me to Carin Johnson. When I met Carin I knew something was different about her. She was compassionate about her clients & her work. She took her time to really investigate my case. She gave me her undivided attention & was quick to get back to me on everything. She was there for me day & nite. No other lawyer gave me this type of commpassion and loyalty to my case ever. She is so well respected in the court community. When I retained Carin the attacks stopped. I felt protected by Carin. I actually put her in my cell phone as, "Vulture potrol". She is now a friend for life. She saved my life & my daughter from a terrible situation.
She preformed a miracle in the court room during trial. After almost 3 years of being falsely accused it is impossible in the legal system to turn a case around after so many years of damage. I watched Carin methodically day by day start to turn the ship around and stop the attacks. Her stratedy is amazing to watch. No one had the knowledge, education, and passion to litigate my case. When it came to trial I felt so proud that I never gave up on my innocents and I knew in my heart I had the best lawyer by my side to clear my name.
My ex had already assisinated my character to so many people and the community. None of that mattered anymore because I knew in my heart I would get jutistice with Carin. I knew I was credible and my ex was not credible. I was honest with Carin about everyting.
I also respect Carin because she will not take on your case unless she feels you have a real testimony to the truth. Money is not what drives her. What drives her is her passion for justice and to exonerate the innocent. That alone is why she is so respected in the Court community.
I had the opportunity to meet high respected experts, and people in the legal system. Carin is worth every single penny if you are blessed enough to retain her.
The day of trial finally came. After the judge had heard the case and Carin was able to get the judge to go back almost 3 years which is a "Miracle" in itself.
I was exonerated of the terrible false allegation my ex got away with for way too long.The judge also threw out people in the case due to its longevity because of Carin! I have never felt so free and blessed in my life. Most importantly, Carin saved my daughter from a terrible life situation that was built on lies.
I now have my daughter completely back in my life! I am exonerated and free from a terrible nightmare that I could never wake up from. Carin has become a great friend and always will be, I will never forget her and what she has done for my family. She is my Guardian Angel and my Rock/Diamond! I have learned so much from her. She almost makes me want to become a lawyer because I look up to her so much! I would love to exonerate the innocent. I can not recommend a better lawyer!
If I could give a million stars I would!
2016 has never been better!

How does one put into words the tremendous amount of gratitude one feels for their committment to fighting for your family and your children? There simply are not enough words to say thank you. Carin is hands down the best attorney anywhere you will ever find to fight for and advocate for your family. She is brilliant, very ethical, compassionate, generous with her time, has experts at her fingertips to assist with your case, but most importantly, she will fight for your case, as if she was fighting for her own family member or child! Her passion to put the child's best interest first, is second to none.
Carin is not easily retained, nor are her services cheap. However the amount of personal attention you get with Carin, expertise, and passion to fight for your family as if they were her own blood, makes her a HUGE bargain! She is worth 5x the amount she charges, if not more, when you consider what she has accomplished for the families who hire her and the generousity of her time. If she does not believe in the client, she will not represent them; but when she does, she gives it her everything, making herself very available to those who hire her.
I trust no one else to fight for life's most important gift...my family, and my daughter's best interest. I am so grateful to Carin as an attorney, and as a friend. I promise you, once you work with Carin, you will not want to hire anyone else to advocate for your family. She is worth every penny and more! Thank you Carin. :-)

Carin Johnson is the best attorney! She has represented me for the last two years in an ongoing child custody nightmare that turned really ugly when my child's mother made false allegations against me in an attempt to remove my custodial rights. After a thorough investigation, the Police realized that my child's mother was lying so they advised me to seek assistance from a national organization which defends the falsely accused. The organization directed me to Carin Johnson. From the start, she listened to me intently while preparing a game plan. Carin was a consummate professional and she showed up fully prepped for trial. After the first two days of trial, the opposing counsel withdrew their false allegations in order to prevent his client from losing custody. Carin realizes that justice had not been served and she agreed to stay on to assist me. She is an absolute Godsend! She is worth every penny and I consider her more than my attorney; she has also been an advocate and a friend. Carin is full of integrity and she will get the job done!

A wonderful intelligent person, that understood what faced and was with us every step of the way as a lawyer and a friend.
None of what we have now couldn't have happened without her.

I had the pleasure of having Ms. Johnson assist me in a very difficult time in my life. With a child with behavioral and RAD issues, led to an unfortunate situation. It was probably my darkest period in my life but Ms. Johnson was nothing but fabulous of being caring to my personal concerns but extremely aggressive on resolution options to pursue. Through a well thought out process and plan not only were all legal items dismissed but i was able to reunite with my family and have a second lease on life. Ms. Johnson is caring, very very aggressive and extremely responsive. She is very well known in the CPS circle and has huge influence to drive decisions. I am blessed to be her client and friend forever.

Carin did a wonderful job handling my case. I retained her for a emotionally difficult juvenile case and she has been wonderful in the help she has provided. She takes the time and the effort to know her clients as individual. She earned my highest level of trust.

Mrs Johnson, is not only a great lawyer but also a great person. She made me feel good and confident since the first time we talked on the phone. Mrs. Johnson took action right away and kept me informed through out the whole process. She explains everything and breaks down whatever you have a problem understanding. Thanks to Mrs Johnson and her great dedication to helping me in my case I am now done and over with my case. I greatly appreciate all the help Mrs Johnson gave me and I know she will help others just as much as she helped me.
