Resolved a major ticket
Mr. Johnson was a complete life saver and helped me when I was facing a rather serious ticket. He was always professional and kept me in the loop each step of the process. It did take longer than I would have liked for the ticket to be resolved, but the delay was not on his end. Thanks so much.

Effective and affordable
I contested a speeding ticket. Wes appeared at trial without me. Case Dismissed. Doesn't that say it all.

In my time of need...
I had a significant life changing injury. The loss of income and medical bills was devastating. Wes represented me and I was able to recover exactly what I lost. I'm back on my feet again and the recovery of my medical bills and lost income made the difference. This was the first time I've ever been involved in a law suit and hopefully the last but I would have had no chance at recovering my losses without his guidance and representation.

Traffic Citation
I was from out of town visiting Longview and inquired a speeding citation from a officer. I looked into getting representation for the issue and found The Law Office of Wesley Johnson on the internet. I contacted the office and met with Tina Clark his assistant. From that point there The Law Office of Wesley Johnson made the process easy and took care of everything with a dismissal of the speeding citation.

Expeditious, Candid and Effective
I engaged Wes to resolve an odd ticket I received in Cowlitz County (driving with a suspended registration). The punishment is severe - minimum 2 days in jail and a fine. Since I travel between California and Washington frequently and live in Seattle, a protracted court case wasn't feasible. Wes got the issue reduced to a minor infraction with a small fine. He was always in communication, required little to none of my time, and handled things with ease.

Traffic Infraction - 1st Speeding Ticket
I got my first ever speeding ticket away from my home in Cowlitz County. Having to appear for court would have been a huge hassle as it would have resulted in ~2 hrs of driving each way. Wesley took care of it with little effort from me. Several months after the ticket was issued, I got an update from his office saying it was dismissed. I didn't have to appear or anything - great service!

well done
Dismissed! Need i say more? It was just a traffic ticket, my first one in decades ; 25 in a 20 (school zone. oops). I could pay Woodland/Cowlitz Co the $214.00 and have my insurance go up , sweat getting another ticket and face license suspension ,or, retain Wesley for the $275.00 flat fee that he charges. It seemed like a good gamble after being advised of Wesleys success against Woodland.

Wreckless driving
I was ticketed months after the fact for wreckless driving, disorderly conduct and harassment. Yeah I am not perfect lol. I was horrified because of the circumstances that this took place under. Mr Johnson explained what happened to the prosecutor and everything was dismissed except for the disorderly conduct. I was very happy with the outcome and I believe he earned the $1200 I paid him. By the way lesson learned lol.

Speeding Infraction‏

They were very professional in handling the case. I definitely recommend Mr. Johnson for any traffic violations in Cowlitz county.

Debt Discrepancy Resolved
Mr. Johnson took on my case and was very knowledgeable and supportive through the whole process. I had an unusual debt case and Mr. Johnson listened to me, examined my paperwork, and then resolved the discrepancy. He saved me thousands of dollars and I am so thankful for his assistance!

Professional and directed.
I sought services from Mr. Johnson in 1998 when an intoxicated motorist hit me at high speed while I was stopped at a red traffic light. I was and am pleased with the results, having received complete and appropriate medical treatment, compensation for my vehicle, and pain and suffering. As I was very young (just turned 18), the entire process from crash to completion was daunting, but through professional direction and action of Mr. Johnson, the matter was resolved in a satisfying and appropriate manner. As a result of Mr. Johnson's quality and professional approach, I will certainly utilize his services in the future.

He is AWSOME!
I have used Wes for five different court cases and he has won all FIVE! Here is a list of things I used him for, 1) Personal Injury = We won 2) Claus not to compete "BUSINESS CLAUSE" = we won 3) Sons traffice ticket = we won 4) Order to stop slander / criminal slander = we won 5) Garnished pay checks for money owed = we won Needless to say he is five out of five for me! He is batting 1000 it does not get much better than that. I have reffered Wes to my closest friends and relatives and never had a complaint. I have only listed the court proceedings that he won for me I have not listed the countless times I sought his advice and follwed it for the better. I woned a business for 15 years and have used serveral attorneys and Wes isthe only one I have kept. He will tell you the truth up front and let you know whatyour chances are. He is been a god send for me.

Hands free experience
Wes and his office were great to work it. Wes is extremely knowledgeable in several areas of law, which is important. In traffic court, he is innovative and creative, willing to work hard to win for his clients. He and his office are also dependable, which is necessary for a less stressful experience. I would use Wes again and I recommend him to others.

Excellent Lawyer
Mr. Johnson has represented me twice. The first was for a ticket for failure to yield. He was extremely helpful and helped me get the ticket deferred. In a year it was completely off my record! The second time he represented me was in a personal injury case. I was a passenger in a car accident and injured my back. The case was complicated by the fact that I had a prior back injury, and I worried that I wouldn't be able to get the help I needed. Fortunately, this wasn't the case. With Mr. Johnson's expert help we never even had to take the case to trial, as the opposing party offered me an adequate settlement before that was necessary. Throughout our dealings, I found Mr. Johnson to be professional, pleasant, easy to contact, extremely competent and knowledgeable, and overall an excellent attorney. I highly recommend him.

Run away from him
He is a worse lawyer I have ever seen. After loosing hearing on my ticket, he even could not respond to my email and phone calls. If you need real professional avoid him.

Do not hire this attorney.
We talked on the phone and this guy was real nasty and didn't care or listened to me. I heard from sources this guy when he is in the court room the judge doesn't even listen to him from eye witnesses because he isn't a good attorney. Go find a real attorney because this guy isn't it. I wouldn't recommend him to my dog.
