5 Star Firm

Chris Johnson is an exceptional lawyer. He handled my case thoroughly and knew exactly how to proceed. He is highly ethical and was well received by the judge. My previous attorney made quite a mess of things, but Chris was able to regain the respect of the court and explain things very clearly. I would highly recommend this law firm. Their prices were fair and I never once felt they were "running up the bill." I will gladly refer others to them.
