Testimonials

A 100% satisfied client”

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 already recommended him to other friends and family members, and will continue to do so.

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.
Definitely Ron is one of the best defense attorneys in the area, and highly recommend from myself, a 100% satisfied client!

Definitely the attorney you want on your side”

Mr. Johnson and his legal team was a godsend to our family in 2017. He was able to help my son receive a reduced sentence from a 10 year to a 3 year sentence. This allowed my son to ONLY serve 17 months in D.O.C. If you are looking for an attorney who is efficient, reliable , hard working, fair and honest, Mr. Johnson is definitely the attorney you want on your side.

I’m so glad [I] had Mr. Johnson’s guidance and legal help”

Ron Johnson has been a huge help on a few occasions! When I was arrested, they didn’t want to release me since they thought I was a flight risk. He managed to get me out-with no bail! I just had to wear an ankle GPS. Though I faced a minimum mandatory, he was able to get me the least time possible. Then, three years after my release, he applied for me and got me early termination from probation. I’m so glad [I] had Mr. Johnson’s guidance and legal help to guide me through a bad time in my life! I highly recommend Ron Johnson!

He was Houdini in the courtoom

A BIG Thanks, goes to the diligent work of Mr. Johnson & his legal team who did amazing work on my case; after I violated my 10 year probation in 2017. At this point; I felt my life was over knowing that I was facing 10 years in prison. But, Mr. Johnson was able to reduce my 10 years to 3 years, which led me to believe he was Houdini in the courtroom.

Ultimately, I spent 17 months in D.O.C. before getting released 2 days before Christmas to spend the holidays with my family.

I have the utmost respect for him and feel that there is no case that this man can’t handle. He has always been in my corner and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank you Ron and BJ for all you’ve done and continue to do!

I did not receive any jail time thanks to Ron

Ron was forthright, informative and caring for my situation and my family. He spent over 3 months reviewing documents in preparation of my trial even working for me on the case while he was on a family vacation skiing in Colorado. Ron attended the trial every day of a co-conspirator alongside me to evaluate the case first hand and to review how the government was presenting their case for preparation of ours.

“That trial went on for a week before it was sent to the jury who ended up convicting the Co-conspirator. Upon that conviction, Ron, my family, and I conferred on my options and decided it was in the best interest of my family to mitigate my situation by taking a plea to minimize my sentencing possibilities. That decision was the best I could make with Ron taking the lead to help me through the sentencing hearing and fortunately, I did not receive any jail time thanks to Ron and his efforts.
