Mine was a divorce case with a minor and an out of state, uncooperative partner. Christopher listened and understood what I wanted and needed. He didn’t do anything that was unnecessary or not needed. Any questions I had, he took the time to answer them and made sure I understood. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to handle my case. My son and I were so lucky to have him represent us.
I didn't know where to begin to find a lawyer to help with my divorce. I googled and Thervo came up. I spoke with 2 other attorney's and was ready to hire one when I saw Johnsen Law, LLC. Something told me to give Christopher a try and I did. It was the best decision I ever made under the circumstances. Christopher was exceptional from our first phone call. He was honest, direct but most of all he was compassionate. He did what he said he would do and he went above and beyond. I put all my trust in him and I will never regret that decision. I would recommend Johnsen Law LLC to anyone who needs an exceptional lawyer because that's what I found in Christopher.
Academically, Christopher attended DePaul for his undergraduate degree, double-majoring in English and American Studies, and John Marshall Law School, for his Juris Doctor and Masters degree in Intellectual Property.
