I highly recommend Patrick Johnston for personal injury recovery. I was injured while riding an electric scooter in Missouri (I’m from California) and needed a personal injury attorney. I googled and found Patrick Johnston, gave him a call and glad I did. Patrick and his wonderful staff, took care of everything, dealing with the insurance companies during my recovery. Everything went smooth and Patrick negotiated a settlement that worked in my favor. I’m very satisfied with Patrick and he will definitely fight for you…thank you again to Patrick and your terrific staff….Cheryl M.


Let’s face it, rarely is it a pleasure to have to deal with a law firm, but our association with Attorney Ben Stephens with Johnston Law Offices, P.C. was a welcome exception. Attorney Stephens and the staff were responsive, patient, explanatory, professional and most importantly, resoundingly victorious. Thank you Attorney Stephens, we are eternally grateful for you and your team.


Been to Patrick for 3 separate traffic violations. All were handled in an extremely timely and professional manner. Patrick took each violation to court FOR me so I never even had to appear, but still recieved the minimum fines for each violation, even getting out of one of the fines completely! Always keeps you up to date with your case, and lets you know exactly what you need to do in the most friendly of manners. Overall a great experience every time!


We have been in need of the services of Johnson Law Office several times with our kids being of driving age. Each instance was handled quickly, professionally. and afford ably. Patrick and Ben are both great to talk to for advice and I highly recommend them.


I was rear ended while stopping for pedestrians to cross the street in downtown Springfield, IL. I called Patrick’s office and he came right to the house to hear about my case. He was extremely nice and explained everything in terms I could understand. He always got back to me when I had questions. He worked fast and if I am ever in need of an attorney Patrick is who I’ll call first.


Patrick did a wonderful job for my husband and daughters accidents. He always goes above and beyond for his clients and got us what we need. With Patrick as your attorney you can never go wrong. To quote the commercial “I love my attorney”.


I went to Patrick to get help with a traffic ticket and was blown away by the outstanding service. Patrick was very professional and made sure I was kept up to date with what was going on. Patrick worked very quickly and had my problem resolved within a week. I would definitely come back if I ever needed help again and I would highly recommend him to anyone that might need legal help.


I have gone to Patrick for 4 different traffic violations and I will always go back to him if I have anymore because he handles them in a timely manner, always returns my phone calls within the day, and is very easy to talk to. He is very professional and helps me as much as he can. He always keeps me up to date with my case. I will always recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney.


I have had the pleasure of knowing Patrick Johnson . Since my very first car accident in 2004. Since then I have been in several more accidents, As always, Patrick has been there to help me. I would and have recommend him to all my family and friends. He is the only lawyer I use now! If you ever need or want a great and professional lawyer. Patrick Johnson is the only one to choose!! He’ll do his very best for you as well.


Patrick is a no-nonsense, straight shooting, hard working lawyer that took care of me when I was hit by an uninsured motorist. I met with him once and then received monthly phone calls with updates and had a check in hand in 8 months! I never had to go to court a single time. Highly recommend!


Patrick and his staff are very caring and professional people. They put their client’s first. Patrick represented us for a personal injury case and it was a complex case. He was very patient, he was by our side every time we needed him. It felt like we were his only client (even though we knew he had many others). He never complained or seemed bothered by the questions we had. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a competent, caring, experienced, and professional attorney. We will forever be thankful for him and his staff’s help through our case.


I had a great experience using Patrick Johnston as my attorney. Thank you for being a great role model for our society. You taught me a great life lesson and you listen to my issues and provided me advice. I will take that advice with me throughout the next years and succeed in the areas I needed help with. I recommend anyone that has legal problems to your office. Your team needs to be recognize for their accomplishments.


Patrick Johnston and his staff have been nothing but supportive to myself and our family. In the recent loss of my husband Patrick was there offering to help my daughters and I in any way he could. I felt very comfortable talking to him, and he never made me feel like my questions or worries were not important to him. He helped my daughter with handling an unfortunate car accident that resulted in her being injured He came to our home if necessary to meet with her. Patrick kept us informed throughput the process of her case. He is the type of lawyer you want on your side. Patrick always has the best interests of his clients in mind and strives to do whatever he can to achieve a positive outcome. I am very thankful that I have a lawyer I can trust and who is very knowledgeable in a number of areas of law. Patrick truly cares about his clients and their needs. I will not hesitate to call on him again. I highly recommended Patrick Johnston and his law firm.


My sister and I was involved in a bad auto accident in September of 2020. Months later I was stuck with the aftermath and no idea on how to proceed with my legal needs. Patrick took the ignition and courage to meet with us at the comfort of my home without hesitation. That day forward Patrick and this team helped me re-gain hope and a sense of comfort that I had lost in September 2020. After being referred to Patrick, Johnston Law Office from one of my moms lLyft passengers was the best blessing in disguise to happen to my sister and I. Johnston Law Offices will forever be recommended legal team. Thank you all.


Patrick and Jacob are both very helpful and super nice. Would absolutely recommend. They are helping me through one of the worst things that has happened in my life and they are incredible.


I had a case that Johnston Law helped me with. They really care and want to help in every way they can. They answered any and every question I had. I had a great experience with them, and recommend them to anyone needing help!


I met Patrick in 2000 after a family tragedy. He was there for me mentally emotionally spiritually throughout this dark time for my family. He was dedicated to me and my family during a trying time in my life. I have never met someone as genuine committed and loyal during difficult times in my life.
He made sure that I understood the legal process easily from paperwork to legal proceedings. He took the time to explain everything I needed to know. He’s more than just an attorney to me in my life. Over the years I can still pick up the phone and he and his office are still there to assist me in anything I need. To have that kind of relationship is something my family and I will always cherish


Patrick and Ben are excellent attorneys, they have helped me out of a couple of jams over the past few years. I would absolutely recommend these guys for any case related to an Auto Accidents, DUI or Traffic Violations.

Over the past three years, Patrick Johnston has been a valuable legal resource to my family and I…. friendly service and great communication each step along the way has taken a lot of stress away from the legal process. I would highly recommend Patrick for any of your legal needs!

Tim R.

I was injured and unable to come into the office. Patrick came to my home and explained everything about the process to me. Patrick and his staff took care of everything. I never had to speak with any adjusters or medical providers. I was treated more like a friend than a case number. I would highly recommend Patrick and Johnston Law Office.
