The following testimonials have come from a variety of previous clients who care to share their experience in working with Johnson Law Firm.
… relentlessly efficient and effective.
Elizabeth has prepared comprehensive estate planning documents for both me and my mother and I would recommend her to anyone that hasn’t yet addressed their estate planning needs. Elizabeth insists that her clients fully understand their current financial situation, their options moving forward, and the ramifications of their potential action or inaction when it comes to their financial future and the future of their family. She is both caring and kind as well as relentlessly efficient and effective. She will explain concepts to you as many times as you need them explained in order to fully understand them. I cannot say enough positive things about Elizabeth’s commitment to her job and to the wellbeing of her clients. Thank you, Elizabeth!
I will recommend Elizabeth in a heartbeat to anyone who wants to get their living trust done …
We just got our living estate trust done from Elizabeth and I cannot Thank her enough !
Firstly – she is flexible and can come over to your place ( even on weekends if needed). This was important for us as we have two very young kids.
Secondly, she is very knowledgeable and pro-active to get her stuff done quickly. She does not do it on time, she does it before her promised deadline and gives you enough time to look over important details.
Third is the signing and the notary is also flexible to come over and both of them have done this long enough to make this as efficient and quick. It was over before we knew it.
I will recommend Elizabeth in a heartbeat to anyone who wants to get their living trust done in the Tri-Valley/Danville/Walnut Creek area.
Thoughtful and Thorough!
I had a wonderful experience with Elizabeth as she guided me through the estate planning process. She spoke plainly and understandably, and was very sensitive to my perspective. I learned a great deal from Elizabeth throughout the process. She was very much in charge of the turnkey operation, handling all the details required to produce a professional and thorough final product. I highly recommend her, and will not hesitate to call on her should I need legal services in the future. On top of her professionalism and expertise, she is quite fun! She possesses a quick wit and has made the whole process fun.
An absolute true professional!!!
In a word, Elizabeth Johnson is AMAZING!!!! She is a true professional. She is thorough, knowledgeable, patient, kind and compassionate. Elizabeth has a wonderful “bedside manner.” I recommend her to everyone. She is the one lawyer everyone needs to know.
Thank you sooo… much Elizabeth!
Here’s what happened:
My husband died. We were together for 36 years. He was 61 years old. It was a fantastic marriage.
One day he was just fine, and the next day our world was turned upside down with doctors and hospitals. Exactly six months later he was gone.
She did everything for me. The whole package. Everything is covered and organized. No probate. And I don’t have to worry about my daughter having to worry about going to court for anything regarding my estate during her grieving. Thanks to Elizabeth, everything is covered, organized, and should easily be managed. Seeing her in action, it’s good knowing she has our backs. She’s funny and caring, which helped with the whole process. I was not looking forward to even dealing with this. She took control, made sure I got what I required. She has a big heart. She’s powerful, so look out. I’m very, very happy.
Thank you sooo… much Elizabeth!
… did a phenomenal and amazingly thorough job in the incredibly short time frame available …
At the eleventh hour of a commercial real estate transaction, I suddenly and very urgently needed to have a new trust created. Elizabeth came to the rescue despite it being a weekend and did a phenomenal and amazingly thorough job in the incredibly short time frame available. Her professionalism and expertise is unparalleled, and she is invariably a true pleasure with which to work.
THE ULTIMATE PROFESSIONAL
Elizabeth Johnson is an expert in her field. She is extremely knowledgeable about trusts and wills,as well as other estate planning issues. I was tremendously impressed with her communication skills.

Thank you Attorney At Law Elizabeth Johnson for all your time, energy, and help. You are down to earth, you kept everything simple and clear. As my way to thank you, I already sent you several referrals and continue to be your ambassador to make sure that all buyers that I work with talk with Ms. Johnson about state planning.
… highly efficient but is honest, quick and has a delightful sense of humor.
Elizabeth Johnson is not only highly efficient but is honest, quick and has a delightful sense of humor. After hiring her to handle my mother’s final estate and the dizzying details that my job as Executor demanded, and then set up a Special Needs Trust for my nephew, she offered to take a look at our Family Trust which had been set up almost 20 years ago by our financial advisor. She pointed out many aspects that were either not in our interest or legally had changed over time. She worked with us at length to clearly explain each section and made sure we fully understood everything we signed. What blew me away is the additional parts besides the typical Living Trust ( with Instructions to Trustee and Certification of Trust), Pour-Over Will, Advance Directives ( with HIPPA Authorizations), Power of Attorney-Assets, there is a Final Arrangements ( with Death Certificate info), Special Instructions to the successor Trustee, Password List for accessing online accounts, Insurance Policies, Property Agreements, Business Agreements, current Financial Assets ( with beneficiary designation), liabilities, Personal and Family History and finally the whole shebang on a Flashdrive! We can now die knowing that our successor Trustee has everything they need in one place! What a gift to that person at a time when you want them to stress free. Elizabeth also offers to make herself available to help the successor if needed. Not only all that – Elizabeth has heart and I now include her as a friend. DO NOT HESITATE TO ENGAGE HER SERVICES – you will not regret it.

Elizabeth brought us thru the estate planning process from beginning to completion. she competently answered our every question, offered us viable options and alternatives. she was flexible with appointments, being available nights or weekends since we both work full-time.

Professional And Caring Lawyer
She is very helpful and I can tell she cares about peoples problems.
We went from being anxious, unknowledgeable clients, to having our wills and trust done in what we believe are record time.
Ms. Johnson knew all the questions to ask to help us along the way, and taught us so much. She provided thorough timely responses to our questions, kept in constant communication with us, understood our need to make changes and provided an overall completely professional service.
We are thrilled and feel much more comfortable knowing we have taken care of our legal responsibilities for our family.
Outstanding, Caring Individual
Ms. Johnson was very professional doing my estate planning. She took her time to answer our questions. She gave advice when needed. Our understanding was her priority. I would recommend her to anyone needing to do estate planning.
Someone to trust…
Eliz. has been a friend for many years. I hadn’t needed a lawyer and she never pushed. But when I said I needed help she was there and took care of everything while educating me. She helped me see how important what I needed to do was. And what would happen if I hadn’t have taken care of the issue. I have also suggested her to others who have become clients and they were thrilled with all aspects of her work.
In my professional career as a CEO I have worked with many many lawyers. None match the competence,compassion, and communication skills of Elizabeth. She assisted me and my wife in redrafting Wills, Trusts, Advance Directives and related documents.Outstanding ability to make complex legal matters understandable. Outstanding ability to listen to the client and craft instruments specific to our desires and needs rather than use legal boilerplate.
Kind, Caring, Knowledgeable and Professional. The only choice for my family.
Ms. Johnson is not just an excellent attorney, she is a great person as well. She came highly recommended from a friend in another field and she is everything I needed. She answered all my questions about preparing for my death and posed many thought provoking questions of her own. Her professionalism and candor is highly appreciated. She considered the difficulties in my case and we worked to find agreeable solutions. I have recommended her to a my friends because her compassion is very important when considering final arrangements. I know that I am now legally safe and taken care of in a way I could not have handled on my own. Her willingness to listen and understand the uniqueness of my situation ( I have a rescue dog sanctuary as well as show dogs) made the entire process much easier. I cannot say enough good things about her character and willingness to help me when I really needed her.
Efficient, Knowledgeable, Comprehensive
Elizabeth is great to work with. She kept us well informed every step of the way, and she took it upon herself to keep us educated about the process and to keep everything moving along. I was impressed with her updates and level of communication. She is very thorough and comprehensive. I know my money was well spent considering how fast she completed our trust, and how completely she covered every issue. I heartily recommend working with her. She prides herself on developing an ongoing relationship, not just a fee for service attorney.
Elizabeth is the best of the best
We used Elizabeth to review our estate plans with us and redo a whole packet that consisted of a Will, Durable Power of Attorney, Advanced Healthcare Directives, Revocable trust and all related materials. Not only is she an extremely knowledgeable subject matter expert, she explains things in a way that makes it easy for folks like us to understand. I would highly recommend Elizabeth and will continue to use her myself in the future.
Excellent personalized service
When I needed specific personalized guidance for my estate and potential long-term care arrangements, I turned to Eliz CA Johnson. She replied with numerous well-considered options and helped me to understand the ramification of each one. Eliz sought the best solutions for my particular situation and then helped me establish my arrangements accordingly. I have continued to review and update my documents to keep them timely, accurate, and correct. I am very impressed with her diligence and professionalism. She follows up on every detail. I heartily recommend Eliz CA Johnson.
Estate attorney services
Elizabeth helped me and my spouse with our estate planning in the most professional, timely, knowledgable and friendly way possible. Even though this was done as pro bono work we never had any inkling that she was treating us as anything other than valued clients. She kept us on schedule, explained the process and provided a complete and thorough product we felt very good about. I would recommend Elizabeth without hesitation.
The best experience ever
My husband and I wanted to re-write our entire Trust as it was entirely out of date. All I could remember was my experience the first time several years ago and I kept putting it off. We finally had to get it done and had the best experience ever with Elizabeth. She explained everything thoroughly and gave visual graphics. Each step was laid out in a manner that I could understand. All possible scenarios were discussed with us, helping us to make decisions. At the end we were given a concise, well organized portfolio binder, that was set up for us to easily update as time goes by. We not only feel confident that our assets have been protected per our wishes, we also know our successor Trustee’s are protected and that they will have her to guide them when the time comes.
We recommend Eliz C A Johnson.
Tireless, Totally Talented Trust Advisor
It has been said that asking for help from a lawyer can be equated to tooth extraction minus the novacaine.
Most fortunately, our experience with Elizabeth Johnson of Johnson Estate Planning has been quite the opposite. Ms Johnson listened to our needs and concerns, helped us evaluate our situation, and, at all times, was warm, knowledgeable, and the consummate professional. We are grateful for her expertise in handling every legal situation for which we have needed her. Most recently, she has updated and provided us with a comprehensive restatement of the “A——n Family Trust” which originated in 1998. Both the depth of her legal judgment and the scope of her patience were put to full use on our behalf.
Elizabeth assisted us with our estate planning and our experience was extremely positive. We found Elizabeth both knowledgeable and professional in all areas of the planning process. She was insightful in her suggestions for our needs and innovative in her ideas for what would be the best plan for us. She keeps us posted with tax and law updates that may effect us adversely. We look forward to continuing to receive her advice for many years in the future.
