About Our Firm

Our Firm

Walnut Creek Criminal Defense Lawyer

The state and federal judicial systems are complex. The process of resolving a criminal case requires a sound understanding of various laws, rules, and procedures. At The Law Offices of Johnson & Johnson, our criminal defense lawyers have extensive experience working within the justice system and can help untangle the nuances concerning your case. We'll start by taking the time to learn about the situation from your perspective, asking pointed questions about the details of your circumstances, from your arrest to the formal charge. Then, we'll examine the evidence gathered against you to spot holes in the prosecutor's arguments. Evaluating the unique merits of your case, we'll determine what defenses may be available and how to present your side of the story persuasively.

Our Walnut Creek criminal defense lawyers are meticulous in preparing for cases. You can be sure that we will leave no stone unturned as we work toward a favorable outcome on your behalf.

Walnut Creek Juvenile Dependency Attorney

Juvenile dependency cases can be hard on both you and your child. If a social worker from Child Protective Services is investigating you or has come knocking at your door, that means someone has accused you of child abuse or neglect. If a judge determines that the claims are true, your child could be taken away from you, which can affect their wellbeing as well as your own. Before it gets to that point, you will go through several hearings, and during the entire process, you have the right to have a lawyer represent you. Attorney Carin Johnson of The Law Offices of Johnson & Johnson is a child dependency lawyer who is passionate about protecting parents' rights and the best interests of families. She is ready to put her knowledge and skills to work for you, helping you through this difficult time.

Walnut Creek Juvenile Delinquincy Attorney

Hearing that your child has been accused of a crime can be scary, but it's essential to know that the allegation does not mean they will be found responsible for the offense. Your child has rights, including the right to have their case go through judicial proceedings and be represented by an attorney. The juvenile justice system is a unique area of the law that differs from adult courts. At The Law Offices of Johnson & Johnson, our juvenile delinquency lawyers in Walnut Creek are familiar with the processes and outcomes of these types of cases. We can skillfully guide you and your child through their matter, ensuring that their rights are protected and seeking to obtain an optimal result for them.

Walnut Creek Civil Rights Attorney

Government officials have the authority to take specific actions to ensure people's safety. For instance, a police officer may arrest a person suspected of a crime, or a CPS social worker may remove a child from their home if claims of abuse or neglect have been substantiated. But the authority these officials have is not unlimited. Unfortunately, some of them may engage in conduct that goes beyond that allowed for their roles. And in doing such, they may have violated the person's Constitutional or parental rights. At The Law Offices of Johnson & Johnson, our Walnut Creek civil rights attorneys do not tolerate unlawful actions carried out by government officials. If you suffered physical injury, emotional injury, or property damage at the hands of a police officer or social worker, speak with us about your case. We will zealously advocate for you and can seek a just outcome on your behalf.
