Redwood City criminal Defense Lawyer

Being charged with a crime is a threshold moment in a person’s life. Their reputation in the community is gravely damaged and their very freedom is often at risk. It’s an unfortunate reality that, even though defendants are innocent until proven guilty in the eyes of the law, they are often abandoned by neighbors, friends, and sometimes even their own family. Defendants need to be able to rely on their lawyer. Defendants need to have confidence that their attorney believes in them, communicates with them, and knows how to fight for them. That’s the kind of legal counsel defendants get at the Law Offices of Dean Johnson. 

Attorney Dean Johnson’s track record is underscored by the fact that he’s made multiple appearances on national television platforms, ranging from MSNBC to CNN to Fox, to comment on legal affairs. The network of investigators he works with includes a forensic analyst who helped consult for the TV show CSI. We’re proud of all that, and they can give clients confidence in our reputation. 

What we’re most proud of, though, is the impact we make on the defendants we’re honored to serve. Attorney Johnson believes strongly in a personalized approach to the law—we know how deeply personal it is for our clients, and we want to be in the trenches with them. You’ll never be just another number at the Law Offices of Dean Johnson. You’ll talk directly with your lawyer as we work to craft a defense strategy. The strong reviews we’ve gotten from our past clients are what matter, and we’re determined to earn the trust of everyone who comes to us for help.
