Super Lawyers – Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The patented selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. Since Super Lawyers is intended to be used as an aid in selecting a lawyer, we limit the lawyer ratings to those who can be hired and retained by the public, i.e., lawyers in private practice and Legal Aid attorneys.
American Association for Justice, Top 100 Trial Lawyers – The American Association for Justice is one of the preeminent associations for plaintiffs attorneys in America. Trial attorneys represent people who are injured and have nowhere else to turn. They seek justice and accountability for clients who are injured by the negligence and misconduct of others and they help individuals and families get their lives back on track after devastating harm.
Our environment is cleaner, our medicine is better and our cars are safer today, thanks to Americans—represented by trial attorneys—who stood up to big corporations and held them accountable in court.
Trial attorneys are committed to ensuring that all people—individuals, families, patients, workers and consumers—can seek justice in our nation’s courtrooms. Trial attorneys fight to preserve a balanced civil justice system and advocate for tough laws to hold industries and corporations accountable when they withhold information that can harm or kill.

We contacted Johnson Becker after my husband had knee replacement surgery and the components failed within 6-9 months. Since then, he has had two more replacements but the damage was done and he hasn't been in way more pain than before he had the first surgery. We then became aware of the lawsuit against Zimmer and contacted their law firm, met with them and they worked diligently for, MANY years on behalf of the all of the clients in a similar situation. They settled the lawsuit in 2019 and my husband received a settlement. While no amount of money can make up for the quality of life he now lives, we are very appreciative of their efforts.

Johnson Becker and their attorneys went above and beyond their duty, and did an amazing job of representing my father in a case against the manufacturer of a medical device. My father and our family are truly grateful for the hard work and dedication of everyone at Johnson Becker. They took the time to fly out to California from Minnesota to meet our family in person; to really get to know the family they were representing. They were able to win the case against the manufacturer and provide monetary relief and a sense of closure for the suffering my father went through because of the medical device used during heart surgery.They were most definitely a blessing in disguise!

While the circumstances of our business together have been less that optimal, my family and I are incredibly appreciative of the work of Johnson Becker (Michael Johnson and his team). They were great advocates for my family and handled a very difficult situation with class, empathy and attention to detail. We highly recommend this firm for anyone's legal needs.
21:07 26 Jan 20

21:16 23 Jan 20
I have never been in a situation where I was forced into a legal battle, but it happened. I was so lucky to find Jake. All of the ups and downs were so stressful. I would call, text and email Jake whenever it was getting to be too much for me. He always put things into perspective so I understood my situation. He replied to any questions immediately. Everything worked out because of Jake. He doesn’t confuse money with his dedication to his clients. After all was finished and taken care of by him, my life is much better. I didn’t just have a great attorney, I have a friend.
03:32 22 Jan 20
If you are looking for a personal and qualified attorney team to handle your pre-litigation or litigation needs, look no further.

For the last few years Adam Kress with the law firm, Johnson // Becker, has been helping me in my fight with the Department of Veterans Affairs in what has been a nightmare of an ordeal. However, with Adam's help and persistence we recently went before a federal appeals judge and as of last Friday; we won!!! If a veteran has everything documented, from military to VA medical providers, don't give up fighting for your life. I would highly recommend Adam Kress and Johnson // Becker. Adam is very thorough, knowledgeable, and doesn't quit fighting; those are traits of a great attorney!!

We were part of a lengthy, sensitive class action corresplawsuit. Written correspondence was clear and concise; emails and phone messages were returned promptly. Total respect for the situation was made obvious by the group, confidentiality, and understanding. Would I consult and contract Johnson and Becker again? Without a doubt, absolutely.

Our experience with the Johnson Becker Firm has been more than amazing. We are grateful to have encountered everyone that guided us every step of the way. The firm was incredibly responsive and detailed when we would reach out for any reason. We are several states away by the way. We never felt rushed or neglected. The absolute opposite. We were truly blessed to cross paths and created amazing results. Thank you all so much for your work and diligences. You’re making things right for those who have no know how. Thank You! Meza Family

Five stars and kudos to Johnson Becker! As an independent contractor working for a major courier company, I was extremely pleased at the outcome of our litigation concerning overtime wages that were due me. In spite of several years of pushback from the defendants, the Johnson Becker team did not back down. The result of their hard work and perseverance was a favorable decision for all of the drivers concerned. I was especially impressed with the fact that throughout the entire time it took to settle this matter Johnson Becker constantly kept us up-to-date via email as to what was happening with the litigation. My heartfelt thanks go out to the entire Johnson Becker team not only for compensation received,but for justice served!

I am very happy that I chose Johnson Becker to represent me. They kept me informed of anything I needed to do along the way and answered any questions that I had in a timely manner. If it became necessary I would not hesitate to have them represent me again.
19:39 09 May 19
We had a very great experience with Adam Kress and his team. They had been very patient with us,our concerns and our questions. They explain everything to us in simple words that we can easily understand. And they also keep us updated. Very accomodating with phonecalls.
15:07 07 May 19
I could go on and on about the absolutely outstanding work the people at this firm do as, make no mistake - Johnson Becker is definitely the real deal.But I'd like to zero in on one very important piece of their firm that I've come to appreciate more than any of the sum of its' parts - their administrative secretary, Julie Shipway. This woman, in my humble opinion, is without question the single most dedicated worker in the field of law I've ever encountered. Anything I needed - ANYTHING, day or night, she was there to help me and assure that all would be made right; and made whole. This is not to say in any way, shape, or form that the lawyers at this firm hadn't done their job to a T, they had! And I'm immeasurably grateful for the justice they saw through, and the settlement they were able to procure for me and for all of us. But Julie was truly extraordinary, and I'm heavily convinced that this firm, in all it's success, really does owe at least one of the legs it stands on to her and her efforts.Thank you for all you've done.
15:35 06 May 19
My husband had a real bad experience with one of these pressure cookers. Once talking to Johnson Becker they had a representative (Adam Kress) fly to South Carolina to talk to me and my family. He was well respectable and took me and my family at the top of his concern. Alawys thoughtful even with questions of other concerns I would recommend the lawfirm to anyone goig through a similar situation.
20:14 05 May 19
2 thumbs up for a well done job . Attorney Adam Kress and his team did their best to win and get the best possible settlement for our case. They are easy to deal with and always there to guide you and answer your questions.
22:05 02 May 19
Johnson Becker was so helpful and easy to work with. They were always immediately available to answer my questions and they kept me up to date every step of the way.

17:35 05 Apr 19
My experience with Johnson and Becker especially working with Mr Adam Kress and Mr Mike has been beyond explainable. They are an amazing team. Mr Adam has been in touch with me throughout the whole process, never left me wondering. This law firm has worked with me to get the best results and I must say I've never felt so stern on anyone's word but everything they said they would do, they did it. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs a great law firm.
21:49 01 Apr 19
Our experience with Johnson/Becker has been completely satisfying in every way ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ As anyone can imagine having a legal issue to deal with is stressful in many ways:1) A difficulty has precipitated the need for an attorney. For us it was a health related and any health issue is stressful. The need for an attorney is also stressful.2) Working with an attorney can be stressful. We all have paperwork to complete as well as the responsibilities of life. Paperwork is not really enjoyable. 3) Waiting can be difficult. For Anyone.The law firm of Johnson/Becker made the process of dealing with these things easier in several ways.First of all, they handled all phone conversations not only in a timely manner, but with compassion.Then, in a very organized way they sent paperwork that made it clear to us as laymen so we understood what needed to be done. It was always handled in an efficient way. We were always notified when it was received. Our phone calls were always answered and returned in a timely manner. And as stated before, they were handled with compassion.The wait was worth it. And since they always kept us notified we felt confident it would be resolved— and it was.We were quite satisfied with not only the outcome, but the process. A special shout out to Lucia McLaren and her assistants Jessica and Emily. They were always kind and understood our concerns. They made us feel not only that they are a good law firm but one that is of the highest quality.

I had a defective medical device that had been surgically implanted in me. When the device failed, I had to have it surgically removed. Johnson Becker, PLLC took my case, and I received a substantial settlement from the manufacturer which was fortunate because since the settlement, I have had to be re-admitted to the hospital two more times, and I have had to have two more surgeries due to complications from this device. The staff at Johnson Becker, PLLC were extremely caring and knowledgeable. I have been a registered nurse for over 26 years, and I am a legal nurse consultant. I was very impressed with their service. They continuously updated me on the progress of my case, and they would always quickly respond to my questions. I would highly recommend Johnson Becker, PLLC.
17:05 23 Mar 19
I have expressed my sincere appreciation to the Johnson Becker team and would like to rate the experience, hoping to ensure others of the professionalism, sincerity and commitment of this legal team. Though my connection spanned several months, the attention to detail the legal representatives exhibited and the communication provided during this time was remarkable. The outcome was more than I anticipated, and the process was painless. Thank you for exhibiting the care and concern for me during this time.
14:57 22 Mar 19
I would like to reccomend the Johnson Becker Law firm. They represented us and we were very happy with their work. Everyone we spoke to whether it be a secretary, paralegal or the attorney we had which was Ms. McLaren. Ms McLaren was very patient and understanding answering all our questions. If she wasn't available at the time of our calls she was very prompt in returning our calls. She made us feel we were important and not treated as if we were a number. Ms. McLaren has compassion and a heart for her clients and you can see that shine through. Even though our case had been concluded she called me to see how I am doing and to check on me. That meant everything to me and touched my heart. If you want a law firm who truly cares about their clients and works hard on behalf of their clients I would highly recommend Johnson and Becker Law firm. If you have MS. McLaren as your attorney then I would say you were doubly Blessed. If Ms McLaren sets the standard for all the other attorneys then you know all of the other attorneys are just as good as Ms. McLaren.
21:26 20 Mar 19
Amazing attorneys If you have an issue this firm will go all the way for you with compassion, knowledgeable advice, and integrity! They were always available for me, and always honest!! It took a long time because of a unforeseen circumstance (not their fault) but they never gave up! And they won me a life changing settlement! I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone!
16:07 20 Mar 19
This law firm was amazing! Always kept me informed on the progress on the action. Whenever I called with a question, my call was returned quickly and was never made to feel like I wasn't important. All the staff I dealt with was compassionate and very understanding. Highly recommend this firm.
18:37 18 Mar 19

I worked with Johnson and Becker as the law firm representing my interests over the course of around seven years. I found the firm to be extremely diligent, responsive and professional in their handling of my case. I’d recommend their services to others and would absolutely turn to them in the future if I needed legal services.
22:58 09 Mar 19
From start to finish Adam Kress was incredible he always kept me informed and on top of everything he had going on called to update me on Saturday's and his own time. I've never had an attorney that I can say feels like family I'm extremely greatful and truely blessed that Johnson & Becker had Adam there to represent me and my case. I'm a disabled veteran and don't have much trust in the system but Adam changed that I had negitive opinions on lawyer's that they didn't really care I can gurentee you that Adam cares and he will forever be family to me and my kids. Thank you to Johnson and Becker for having a great man like this working there and if you need an atty don't hesitate call them.

00:04 05 Mar 19
My husband and I have been involved in a legal issue, and have worked with Johnson Becker. Everyone at this firm has been outstanding, from the people that answer to phone, to the paralegals, to the attorneys. We worked closely with Alexandra Roberston, an attorney at the firm, and we could not have been happier with her. She explained every step of the process , which in our case, took a good amount of time. She is so patient, so there was never a time that we felt uncomfortable asking questions. We know that our best interest was always her top priority, and we have complete confidence in her, and the entire firm. During what is a most stressful time in our lives, we are incredibly grateful that we were able to work this this firm. They have all gone above and beyond for us. I hope that anyone that has a legal issue gets treated with the same integrity and respect that Johnson Becker has treated us. They are very deserving of their great reputation.

I obtained representation from Johnson Becker for a lawsuit 2 years ago - from day one, Adam Kress was absolutely the most thorough and professional attorney so have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. What initially started as a very emotional, draining experience that I dreaded answering or making calls for, actually became one of the smoothest processes I’ve ever had to encounter. I would highly recommend Johnson Becker, and wholeheartedly Adam Kress, without a shadow of a doubt, I am thankful for all that he did to ensure a solid outcome for myself and all involved.
23:59 28 Feb 19
They were honest and very capable of handling my case. A very classy group of attorneys.
03:57 05 Apr 18
They did what they said they were going to do!
06:35 07 Mar 18
Great experience with my attorney, he is very informative and always keeps me informed and answers me back very quickly. Would recommend
16:33 06 Mar 18
Great law firm to work with. They took the time to get to know and help me. They were always there if I had questions and they kept me up to date every step of the way.
01:38 06 Mar 18
Johnson Becker PLLC is an excellent firm who has worked with me diligently to see justice done. Without the support and dedication of Kellie Payne and Jake Jagdfeld with regards to my case, I would have given up long ago. I would recommend them to anyone.
22:17 13 Feb 18
My experience with Jake Jagdfeld and his team at Johnson Becker was beyond anything I had expected! I am blown away from multiple levels as I have dealt with many law firms throughout my life. From the personal customer service to the regular follow through and realistic education and options for my case it made handling the stress of my legal situation far easier! I would highly recommend this firm if you're looking for a team who is 100% behind their clients and willing to go the extra mile to ensure success.
20:33 27 Dec 17
Loved these people they were GREAT to me always answered all my questions and won my case for me... THANK YOU SO MUCH
22:56 22 Dec 17

They are great law Firm and I would use them again
22:57 14 Dec 17
Very good at consistent communication, follow up & availability.
22:44 05 Dec 17
Great experience. Although they couldn't help me with my claim they were very kind and understanding though the process. The paralegal explained everything to me and although I took generic medicine I know they will bring justice for those that do have a claim. Unfortunately we need to be upset at the manufacturers and law makes for making it impossible for those of us who can't afford brand name medication to get the same justice.
