This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Compassionate, Attentive and Detail Oriented
Jamie was brought on to my case to assist another attorney in the firm, due to a complex and highly contested divorce with multiple matters being litigated. She jumped right in, and quickly became familiar with the details. Jamie has been a very compassionate and strong advocate for me and my children. Her and the 2nd attorney always encouraged me to take the high road in my case. That strategy didn't always work in my favor, but I can look back with a clean conscience. Thanks to my ethical legal team, I know that I always did the right thing for me and my children. Unlike my ex, I know that I didn't abuse the family court system or my ex in the process. Sadly, I had to relocate before my divorce was over, which caused me to find a new attorney. Jamie took a personal interest in my case and was kind enough to stay in touch with me through the end. Jamie is incredibly bright and will help you do the right thing. I'd hire her again and have recommended her to friends.

Recommending Jamie Polito Johnson
I had the pleasure of having Jamie represent me recently in my divorce case. Not only is Jamie a bright, well informed and creative lawyer, she also has empathy and the amazing ability to make her clients feel respected and cared for. She approached my case with a goal to create a manageable settlement for both parties, to be fair yet get me what I needed to move forward with my life. I will recommend Jamie to any of my friends and acquaintances that might need her services.

Relationship: Co-worker
"I have worked with Jamie Polito Johnston since 2007. Jamie and I have worked together as co-counsel, but even when she is not directly working on a case with me, I enjoy consulting with her on complex cases to ensure that I am approaching all angles of a given matter. I have also worked on a case against Jamie before I joined our current firm. I can attest both from my current peer relationship with her and my previous experience with her as opposing counsel, that Jamie is bright, dedicated, and professional and her clients are consistently both impressed and appreciative of her work product. Jamie has turned her academic success into a successful practice, and I admire her and would highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking advice on family law or employment-related issues."
