Springfield Criminal Defense Lawyer

Legal Team with Over 100 Years of Experience

Experience and reputation should be some of the top things you consider when choosing a criminal defense lawyer to represent you. At Johnson Law Group, we have much to offer our clients in both of these areas. Our Springfield criminal defense attorneys have over five decades of experience.

Our legal team—which includes former prosecutors—has garnered an impressive reputation for our high-quality legal services. Our lawyers have been selected for inclusion in the Top Trial Lawyers® list. This prestigious honor is given by the invitation-only national organization The National Trial Lawyers®.

Our law firm takes on all types of criminal cases—even the most complex cases, such as those involving murder charges. Have you been charged with a crime related to controlled substances, such as a drug crime or a DUI offense? What about an offense related to stealing or defrauding others, such as a theft crime or a white collar crime?

Whatever type of criminal matter you are dealing with, we can use our in-depth knowledge of the legal system to help you fight conviction. Even if you have not yet been arrested and are only under investigation for a crime, we can help you perform your own pre-file investigation so you can start building a strong defense.
