If you are facing serious criminal allegations, your defense lawyer must be able to make a powerful argument before a jury of your peers. When prosecutors understand that a defense lawyer is serious about taking a case to trial, a defendant may have more leverage and an increased likelihood of favorable outcomes, either inside or outside the courtroom.
“Ron was a lifesaver for me!”
“Ron gave me honest, professional advice, and did not sugarcoat what the outcome of my case could be. However, he was gentle and caring, and I always knew that he was working diligently to ensure the best outcome possible for me. Ron went above and beyond to ensure I understood the process and kept me informed throughout the entire process. Ron’s knowledge and experience says it all. I’ve met many people over the years whose attorneys guaranteed them a certain outcome in their case. Ron never did that, but assured me that he was working in my best interest… Ron is one of the best defense attorneys in the area, highly recommend!”
“Ron was forthright, informative and caring”
“Ron was forthright, informative and caring for my situation and my family.

I thank God for Ron and I would highly recommend him as counsel on any situation.”
“I couldn’t have asked for better representation”
“Words can never express the gratitude that I have for you and your office. I strongly endorse and recommend you, and your staff, in writing for the wonderful legal counsel you are during a very difficult and trying time in my life.”

“A professional attorney that fights for his clients rights”
“Mr. Johnson personally takes on all aspects of the case he is representing and works extremely hard to ensure all details have been reviewed in depth for a positive outcome. I would recommend his practice would be the first call.”
