Mr. Johnson has been called a “REAL LAWYER” following a trial before a renowned United States District Court Judge from the Northern District of California and is said to have “SHOOK THE FOUNDATION” of a local police department by a Magistrate Judge following a trial before him in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California.

Mr. Johnson previously served for three years as the President of the Criminal Law Section as well as a member of the Labor Law Section of the Contra Costa County Bar Association.
