“Now on Mr. Johnson’s part, he did an incredible job of compiling information in the case. I have never had more complete information on a defendant at sentencing than I have had in this case. It is thorough, complete, appropriate, and very useful in arriving at a decision in this case.”
Honorable Richard Couzens, Placer County Superior Court

“Hi Tom,

You were exactly the right person for the job and we are all very grateful for your professional handling of the case against Michael Winter. I believe that I told you in the beginning that you gave me a sense of calm when I spoke with you, and I really needed that at the time. Your calm demeanor and knowledge of the court system was exactly the right mix. You were always kind, and caring, and professional in every situation with our family. That was truly a blessing to us.

I feel very fortunate to have found you. If we can ever do anything to help you, please let us know. You are a very good man and an excellent lawyer.”
– Joan Winter

“I was facing 10 years with 5 prison priors when Mr. Johnson took over my case. He was brilliant in trial in front of Judge James Henke. I believe he is the best trial attorney I have seen. At the end of the trial the jury was hung and the case got dismissed.”
