Attorney Richard G. Johnson Will Fight for Your Rights

Attorney Richard Gibbs Johnson, the founder of the law firm of Richard G. Johnson Co., L.P.A. in 1990, is a leading practitioner in the area of plaintiffs' legal malpractice and related legal ethics and professional responsibility issues. Mr. Johnson stands leagues apart from other Ohio law firms in devoting his practice exclusively to this niche area, and he is the only attorney in Cleveland and all of Ohio who limits his practice to this area. Mr. Johnson represents clients who have suffered serious financial losses due to negligent, reckless, intentional, fraudulent, or unethical conduct on the part of their lawyers or sports agents.

Mr. Johnson holds a Master's Degree in Business Administration as well as a Juris Doctorate, giving him unique insight into the business considerations surrounding high-value claims. Businesses, individuals, professionals, and sports stars turn to him for experienced guidance and representation in major damage claims against their former lawyers or sports agents.

Mr. Johnson is very selective in the cases he accepts: prospective clients must have minimum economic damages of $250,000 for consideration, and prospective clients are typically charged a substantial initial review fee, which may be waived for significant claims. Cases may be taken on a contingent, hourly, or blended rate, depending upon the nature and value of the claim. Typically, bankruptcy, criminal, and domestic relations malpractice cases are handled on an hourly basis only; however, exceptions may apply in very limited circumstances.
