About the Firm

 Founded in 2019

Many attorneys steer complex litigation matters like high speed vehicles, low on fuel, eager to find the closest readily available exit into settlement. In contrast, James Johnson prides himself on understanding when clients can only receive appropriate resolution through trial. James is regularly sought after by colleagues to assist and manage matters scheduled to go to trial because his reputation with courts and opposing counsel reflects his years of uncompromising legal representation.

James Johnson

Founder

Although James is proud of his Georgia Super Lawyer and Legal Elite in business litigation recognitions by Georgia Trend Magazine, his drive as an attorney comes from the late night case preparation work that yields nuanced legal arguments. He is a trial attorney who handles sophisticated civil litigation in federal and state courts in Georgia and California. James enjoys trying a diverse variety of cases, and has particular expertise in: (a) disputes involving business frauds, breaches of fiduciary duty and other business torts; (b) securities fraud and similar white-collar civil actions; and (c) real estate and construction disputes. His  strength is working with clients to develop and execute winning litigation strategies at the outset of a new matter in order to stay three steps ahead of the opposition. That said he also loves the challenge of jumping into a new case on the eve of trial. James is regularly involved in cases involving unique legal issues and interesting clients. HIs cases have been discussed in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Fulton County Daily Report, the Los Angeles Daily Journal, People Magazine, and USA Today, among others.

Our Vision & Values

We value Fearlessness, Stewardship, Agility, and a Tactical Mindset. 

Our vision is to be the only go-to choice for businesses involved in litigation where trial resolution is the only viable option. 

The Glory of a Good Lawyer

Is to Win a Bad Trial.
