    Tremendous attorney who takes time to understand the facts, provide specific details on strategy, interpretation of the law & potential outcomes. Professional and very respectful staff that communicates via email, text, cell, and mail to keep me informed throughout the case status. Represented by Mr. Johnston multiple times and have not lost a case.

    I have been an adversary, a colleague and a client of Mr. Johnston and I can honestly say I have never met a more competent attorney. He displays all of the professional courtesy and diligence one would desire in our profession. I realize a perfect score may appear insincere, but I assure you it is not so. I know of no one I trust more than Mr. Johnston.
