Johnson Law Group maintains a diverse civil practice, representing individual and business clients on a wide range of issues, both in and out of the courtroom. We employ advanced technology in order to make communication convenient and efficient for our clients and provide clients with access to the most current strategies and theories to solve legal issues. Our approach is to work closely with clients to design successful and cost-effective strategies that are tailored to their individual needs. In general, our goal is to minimize the expense and uncertainty of formal judicial proceedings.
Judicial proceedings in the United States are expensive and time-consuming. They also are necessary from time to time. Johnson Law Group has more than 20 years of litigation experience in federal, state and administrative courts. While our approach is first to identify solutions for solving legal needs without resorting to formal proceedings, our team has the experience to represent our clients at all stages of the court process. We can also help prepare your case for formal mediation or binding arbitration in order to help you avoid the often costly litigation process.
Wills, Trusts, and Estates
Johnson Law Group has extensive experience in creating tailored estate plans for individuals and families designed to preserve and distribution of wealth, avoid expensive probate costs and minimize taxes. The firm is expert in drafting revocable living trusts, special needs trusts, wills, durable and special powers of attorney, and advance health directives. We also administer estates and trusts and provide support for intervention proceedings such as financial guardianships.
Johnson Law Group has over 25 years of experience in government contracting, having engaged with numerous federal, local and international agencies and international bodies over that time, including USAID, DOD, State, the World Bank, DCPS, MCPS, PGCPS and others.

The firm’s work with business interests is wide-ranging, including forming sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies, and for-profit and not-for profit corporations. We provide tailored counsel to clients in order to establish a sound legal framework in which to operate a successful business.

The U.S. population is aging, with longer and much more active lifestyles and greater expectations, the need to manage assets, provide for long-term care, and qualify for governmental benefits such as Medicare becomes paramount.
