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.
Johnson // Becker is honored to have received this nomination.

I would highly recommend the Johnson Becker law firm. This is the best law firm I've worked with over my years for legal guidance. They are honest, compassionate, and they care about their clients. The quality of customers service felt as if they were representing family! I have successfully used Johnson Becker and knew that once the initial paperwork was sent in that it would likely be at least 5 years before a settlement. They kept me informed and anytime I had questions very prompt with the replies. Yes they get a % but they really work for you the client. Everyone very friendly and you are not a number but an individual.

My dealings with Johnson Becker were totally professional, thorough, and represented everything you would expect from a highly reputable Law Firm. They were extremely accurate in the fact-finding investigation of your case, never making false promises, and ensuring that all of your concerns and questions are answered. I can honestly state that I could think of no one that I would rather have represent me in as important a time as legal proceedings. They answered every question I had and I was treated with respect. Good attorneys with excellent communication by the paralegals and support staff. I was satisfied with their representation and would use them again if needed Awesome everybody at Johnson Becker is awesome, What I liked the most about Johnson Becker was that they kept me informed even through they are very professional they still have that family air I will recommend them They are five star. Great results Friendly and sticks to the times given.

Absolutely the best of the best. Always answered any questions I had. Returned every phone call promptly. Very professional. Sought legal advice and representation. Was absolutely NOT disappointed. Would highly recommend them. Great attorneys that keep you informed and up to date about anything you’ve hired them for. Would highly recommend! I am a lawyer who had need of a law firm to refer a client to handle a complicated pharmaceutical product liability suit in which causation was far from clear. The client had an extremely complicated medical history (his medical records filled a banker's box) and he also happens to be my husband. I therefore wanted to ensure not only that his lawsuit would be handled competently and professionally, but also that the lawyers responsible for the case would be diligent, leaving no stone unturned in their representation.As an attorney who has tried cases from small claims to wrongful death, I know that a trial lawyer's success is directly related to a commitment to prepare every case as if it will be tried to conclusion before a jury. Given that the vast majority of cases are settled before trial, insurers are keenly aware of which lawyers are not afraid to go to trial to get their clients the best possible result. As a referring attorney, I need to know that my clients will be kept informed of the progress of the suit, the discovery process, and will be thoroughly prepared for any testimony to be given.From the beginning, Attorneys Timothy Becker, Alexandra Robertson and Lucia McLaren instilled confidence in the client and me. They gave a frank explanation of the length of the litigation process, they worked with the client to ensure that discovery was complete and deadlines timely met. Once discovery was complete, they continued to timely communicate the status of the case right through to negotiating a settlement which ultimately was possible only through resolving complex lien issues, which could have easily sabotaged any settlement. Most importantly, every member of the Johnson Becker team, from the attorneys to the paralegals to the office staff, always made the client feel genuinely cared for. I would definitely recommend Johnson Becker to any injured client in need of a trial lawyer. Hello! First, I must apologize for the length of this review, but I have to provide the details of the excellent service received by Johnson Becker PLLC (Adam Kress and Team). I chose the above choices (Good Quality, Professional, and Responsive) regarding what I like most about the business because the Law firm is deserving of it. I was introduced to Johnson & Becker PLLC through an introduction of another law firm which handles personal injury cases that involves large manufacturing companies. I live in Chicago, with many known prestigious and great law firms, but I did not find what I was looking for as it pertained to representation for this particular case. I knew the case might be a bit challenging for an attorney, and under different circumstances; I would never consider dealing with a firm outside of my state. Many of the law firms I contacted in Chicago did not want the challenge, but Johnson Becker took on the challenge; and I'm glad they did. My initial contact was Adam Kress at Johnson Becker. I communicated my feelings regarding trust of attorneys and law firms overall, but felt Mr. Kress was genuine, and truly had my best interest as primary, as well as confident regarding what he could do as my attorney. The level of excellence Mr. Kress and his team showed in operations of my case from the beginning to the end was absolutely superb. The firm is extremely organized, detailed, and thorough as it pertains to research, explanations, and follows up. I felt comfortable with each individual I worked with, and became fond of each. Please remember, I'm in another state. My case lasted years, but I was kept informed on every level, and each step of progress in the case. I knew the firm was fighting on my behalf, and I trusted Adam Kress and his team fully: Jessica and Bryanna. As the case was wrapped up; I had dealings with Ms. McLaren, who was also exceptional in answering questions, providing information, and client service overall. I was extremely pleased in all aspects of my case, as well as services, and highly recommend Johnson Becker PLLC law firm for whatever situation you might need an attorney. In my personal opinion, the attorneys are genuine, trustworthy, and represent their clients on the highest level. Although I'm an Illinoisan; I will continue to use Johnson & Becker for legal services, as well as, my family. Thank you!

My case was lengthy and difficult. Through it all Johnson Becker, and Lucia McLaren were amazing. They went above and beyond .They were available for even the littlest questions and concerns. I am very grateful for their help in seeing this through. It was a long 6 years...but the result was worth it. Jake Jagdfeld and his team represented our special needs daughter who was attacked by another client at her day program. He made the effort to understand our situation as parents being a voice for a vulnerable adult. We wanted to encourage the day program to make improvements in their protection of both staff and clients.Dealing with a vulnerable adult is not a normal case for lawyers and we were very thankful we chose Jake and his team. They went beyond mere professional duty in getting to know our daughter and listen to her.They maintained a balance approach and guided us to a peaceful and satisfying resolution. Amanda, Kellie and Jake made the process of going through my case so easy and stress free. They are professional, kind, attentive, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you so much!!! Hello, I live in Chicago, I was visiting Minneapolis, MN when I was rear ended. Thank God my car was drivable , however I was injured. I was referred to Johnson/Becker Law Firm, where I received EXCELLENT service. Even though I live in Chicago, they were very responsive and kept me informed throughout the process. Amanda who works directly with the attorneys was extremely knowledgeable, easy to talk to and accessible whenever I reached out to her. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND their EXPERTISE if you are in need of an ATTORNEY. THEY ROCK!!!!!

Since Day one they were on my side. They worked hard on my case and never gave up. I thought I would never get a dime from the company that caused my injury. But, This Group of People did an outstanding job and fought for me and did so much work to prove my case.I would use them again if I ever need too. Always was willing to answer my questions and never gave me the run around. From the beginning, they did what they said they were going to do to get the desired results. Being from out of state, this is exactly what we were looking for. Working with them required faith and patience and ultimately, it paid off. HIGHLY Recommend this firm and their team!!!!

Adam Kress and his team did an awesome job with our case!!! professional and diligent!! KUDOS!!! thanks for everything Johnson Becker is, to me, a trusted and reliable partner. We went through a very protracted litigation process together. The firm was always responsive and always quick to explain the complexities of this complex case. No one advocates for their clients like those at Johnson Becker! They are a phenomenal team and a team you want on your side when you're going through a challenging time. They truly care about your wellbeing and put you in the best position to move on with your life. This was my first time needing a lawyer. Bryanna and Adam were very helpful in working with me. They ended up getting me a fair settlement for my trauma, and were helpful in answering my questions along the way.

Of most importance might be their great reputation in the Legal community and , the fact that they have the size and resources to take care of you and your family! The service I received was excellent, but I have to give a special “Thank you” to Lucia and Ryan, who both went above and beyond to secure my settlement funds that I thought were lost because of a lien!

I referred my client to attorney Adam Kress with Johnson Becker after my client was injured by a NutriBullet. Mr. Kress and his team represented my client to a successful resolution to her case. Mr. Kress and his entire staff at the firm were fantastic to work with and made my client feel confident that she was being personally represented and was not just a number. They were always available to answer her questions and always returned her calls. My client and I can't say enough good things about our experience with Mr. Kress, his team and the Johnson Becker law firm. We highly recommend Mr. Kress and the firm and I would not hesitate to refer my clients to them in the future. Johnson Becker handled a medical lawsuit for me. The lawyers and clerks were very knowledgeable and fought for me. The communication and updates were outstanding! They kept me up-to-date throughout the case. I really appreciated the follow up and check-in from all involved in my case after we settled. My case is done and they are still looking out for me. I can't say enough great things about Johnson Becker!
