DUI Attorney
Jason was the best I could have asked for. He answered my call on a Sunday morning and I had my case settled as quick as it possibly could have been.

L&I Conferance
I had an industrial injury 2 years ago. After a major neck surgery I continued to have severe pain in my left shoulder. L& I would not accept the shoulder as part of the claim because it had not been stated on the original L&I accident report. I filed an appeal and finally was granted a conference meeting to review if the shoulder injury was part of the original injury or result of. I consulted Mr. Jason Johnson and advised him of my situation. He reviewed my case and even though I did not want to obtain an attorney to attend the conference with me he assisted me in a very courteous and professional manner. He provided me with a plan and materials including actual court cases which I was able to take with me to the conference. His professional assistance made me feel confident and prepared for the meeting. Due to Mr. Johnson's help I was able to convince the L&I attorney & judge to reverse the original decision and allow me have my shoulder checked by an independent Orthopedic Surgeon. I cannot thank Jason enough for the help he gave me. I would highly recommend his services without any reservations whatsoever. He is a great, professional attorney with very high integrity.

excellent service

Jason is great!
I was arrested for Assualt 4/DV. Jason was contacted on short notice to represent me, and still managed to get me released on my own recognizance. Once Pre Trial started he wanted to be sure he was as informed about the case as possible, and that I understood what was going on every step of the way. Jason ended up working out a deal so that I didn't have to go to trial where my charges would be dismissed after 11 months.

Need a good attorney?
Jason represented my son in a DUI and we found him to be a true professional, he kept us informed and was present at every hearing. The case ended up going to the jury which is where Mr. Johnson is at his best. The end results were not as any of us had hoped for but not because of a lack of effort on his part, he was well prepared and argued steadfastly for his client. Not only is Jason an excellent attorney but he genuinely cares about his clients.

Doesn't have enough experience
Jason was used in a criminal case and although I felt he was honest in most ways, I don't feel he gave our family the truth in all the situations and more importantly when it came to trial I do not feel he had the experience needed to prove my family member was innocent. He needs to check out how an experienced criminal defense attorney represents cases before he continues to try his non-working strategies. He is a nice guy though.

Services not as described
Hired Jason as a criminal defense lawyer and he ended up representing me in my divorce trial. The divorce attorney I hired for his firm did Jason's work as my criminal defense attorney. The representation was totally backward, needless to say I lost both cases.
