Joe A. Johnson

Attorney Joe Johnson began practicing criminal defense in 1992 after earning his law degree at the University of North Dakota School of Law in Grand Forks. He has since dedicated his practice to honest and straightforward methods of communication, and strongly believes that providing clients with solid and experienced advice is the best way to achieve success. He understands that being arrested for a crime is a harrowing experience, and that the outcome can affect a person for the rest of his or her life.

Joe Johnson prides himself on offering an open and welcoming environment for all his clients to discuss their personal situations. He believes in putting up an honest front, and won’t just tell you what you want to hear for the sake of making a buck.

He handles each case personally, and when clients come for help they are getting nearly 25 years of skilled criminal defense assistance. He doesn’t make guarantees, and insists that any lawyer who does isn’t being honest. He does, however, work hard to get each and every one of his clients the best possible outcome for their unique situation.
