Feedback

Brent is knowledgeable about numerous real estate areas, as well as business matters. He works diligently for his client, yet is civil to the attorneys and their clients on the other side of the matter, trying to bring about a successful conclusion for both sides. Yet if litigation is needed, he is a well prepared able advocate. I know if Brent is the lawyer on the other side, there will be a respectful, energetic pursuit of the legal issue. Usually a “win-win” for both sides. 

Brent Johnson of the Lommen Abdo Law Firm in Hudson has done an excellent job for our company and personal legal needs for many years. I can unconditionally recommend Brent.
