Confidence & Trust

Confidence & Trust

Mr. Johnston takes an intense personal interest in each of his clients. He starts by getting to know you and your circumstances inside and out.   He listens to you because he knows from experience that you know the facts of your particular situation far better than the Government ever will. 
 
Police officers almost invariably arrive at the scene after an incident has occurred and then attempt to fill in the blanks in order to make an arrest.  Prosecutors are then compelled to proceed on the often speculative and biased accounts of these officers and complaining witnesses. 
 
Mr. Johnston goes to the scene to personally understand what happened and to uncover the witnesses and conflicting evidence that somehow never seem to make their way into the police report.  This process is critical to developing a complete picture so that your side of the story can be effectively presented to the government, the Court and  jury.  Winning your case starts with listening to you.
