Criminal Law

Being charged with a criminal offense is a frightening and potentially life-changing event.  Even seemingly minor charges can have far-reaching effects on your life including placing your freedom, job, or driver’s license at risk.  Attorney Francys Johnson understands that every criminal case is unique and that every criminal defendant deserves an attorney that understands the ramifications of the charges on all aspects of our clients’ lives.  We strive to offer our clients diligent representation, confidentiality, and Attorney Francys Johnson is readily available to answer questions about the charges our clients are facing and how to best mount a defense to those charges.


A Sharp and  Aggressive Criminal Defense Lawyer

Attorney Francys Johnson fights for each person who honors this Firm with the responsibility of protecting his or her legal rights in a court of law.


A Grand Jury Procedure begins when the government, through a Prosecutor, indicts, accuses, or cites a person for conduct that lawmakers have decided is illegal.  The Prosecutor has a large staff of lawyers, law enforcement officers, detectives, sophisticated crime labs and experts, a huge budget, and a tremendous advantage.  Our job is to challenge the government's case, to present your Credibility of Witnesses, to build your evidence, and to take on the Prosecutor fact for fact. The strength of a case lies in our investigation, preparation, and courtroom presentation.
