Chalmers Johnson: Most knowledgeable in federal employment law

My review is on going? I met Chalmers in 2009 through a friend, and in short found he is knowledgeable in Federal Employment Law. He is a unique attorney because as a client my persona is East Coast assertive?! For example, I am a Philosophical person by nature and question everything, right or wrong. I had over 16 years of Federal

He is a unique attorney because as a client my persona is East Coast assertive?! For example, I am a philosophical person by nature and question everything, right or wrong. I had over 16 years of Federal Service, and subsequently was discriminated against on numerous occasions. To date, I am about to lose all I worked for. I believe deep down Chalmers is the most knowledgeable Attorney I know in relation to Federal Employment law, and is easy to talk with when he sees you! Though I worry 24-7 about the progress of my case due to be heard in FEB/2018 Tacoma Federal District Court. As a Disabled ARMY Veteran would recommend Chalmers for all Veterans, and or Federal Employees with Discrimination concerns. Also as a 20 year plus Life Member of AMVETS Post #1 Tacoma, WA. and as a proud person who served my country in several Federal Venues to exceed 20 plus years. I fully recommend him as

As a Disabled ARMY Veteran I would recommend Chalmers for all Veterans, and or Federal Employees with Discrimination concerns. Also as a 20 year plus Life Member of AMVETS Post #1 Tacoma, WA. and as a proud person who served my country in several Federal venues to exceed 20 plus years. I fully recommend him as an Attorney with an array of experience to adjudicate any Federal Employee/labor/discrimination case with a never give up attitude. Even under pressure from me( Assertive Client) 🙂 he stays calm. Though he’s yet to win my large case! I feel deep down he will prevail. I only hope to survive the Government

Even under pressure from me( Assertive Client) 🙂 he stays calm. Though he’s yet to win my large case! I feel deep down he will prevail. I only hope to survive the Government collusion by following the rules of Law in relation to EEO (which my employer did not follow)! I was still forced out with all my years of service, and am devastated from the experience. However, Hats off to Mr. Chalmers Johnson, you have helped me become

David Jones takes care of all of the hard and scary parts of child custody

For 2 years I have been fighting for my little girl. My very first trial I had a lawyer from another firm that was very detached and unwilling to truly help me. He was just after my money and not the wellbeing of myself or my daughter. My second trial I represented myself and was able to come out on top, but the third trial was the one that really mattered, and I couldn’t handle the stresses of the situation by myself. My family came together and we decided to search for the very BEST attorney in Port Orchard, and we found him at GSJones Law.

David Jones was nothing short of amazing. He is a family man with extensive knowledge regarding family law, and he takes care of all of the hard and scary parts of child custody. David is kind, funny, hard working, timely, and most of all he is willing to fight your battle. I truly cannot put into words how truly thankful I am for this man!

I promise you will receive the best help and experience from this law group, and if you hire David Jones I can promise you will not be disappointed with the help he can provide your situation.

David Jones: No more stresses or worries with child support

We worked with David Jones after already trying to represent ourselves in getting a parenting plan and child support order entered with the non custodial father. Once we handed everything to David we no longer had the stresses nor worries we dealt with prior to meeting him.  David was able to avoid court by working out agreements out of court, Guiding us with his wisdom for what was right. His assistant, James was also very nice to work with.  He was always easily reached if we had any questions.
We would recommend David Jones whole heartily.

A legal powerhouse

My Husband of 35 Years was laid to rest. All sorts of legal problems come up when dealing with families, pensions, properties, and who gets what and who does what. GS Jones Law Group has all kinds of lawyers. As a legal powerhouse this office can and did handle it all in house, with considerable legal expertise and professional execution. I was guided skillfully thru the process .

Norm Short: Exactly what you hope your lawyer will be

We spoke to a lawyer and after describing our case the lawyer said it was beyond the scope of his ability (very nice man and a good lawyer, but our case was complex). That lawyer referred us to Norm Short.

Norm Short was amazing. We have seen him twice and expect to work with him further. He was thorough, understanding, considerate, and has done an amazing job for us. After reading other reviews I felt sorry for another prospective client because had she waited, she would have found Mr. Short to be exactly what you hope your lawyer to be.

David Jones: Good reputation for truthfulness and fair dealing

I have known Dave since he began practicing in Kitsap County. His primary area of practice is domestic relations law and I believe his reputation in this area is good. Dave’s firm handles guardianship cases which is one of my areas of practice. I believe Dave is knowledgeable and competent in this area, and has a good reputation for truthfulness and fair dealing.

John Groseclose: Liked that I could rely on GSJones lawyers for anything that came up

I used several attorneys in the office for divorce, real estate law, personal injury and when my husband died. John Groseclose helped me most recently with my late husband’s pension and property.

John guided me through difficult times and incredible paperwork. What I like about John is that he let’s you know that you are in steady hands. When I was so upset, he was calm and levelheaded. I felt listened to.

I really liked the fact that I could rely on other lawyers in the office for anything and everything that came up.

Thank God for John Groseclose

I am an eighty-six year old woman, with very little knowledge of the law. After the death of my husband, I turned to a close friend, the son of my husband’s good friend. I allowed him to take control of my finances, so he could buy property and build me a home. I thought it was my home, and I had agreed that upon my death I would will the land and property to him. This was going to be my payment to him for taking care of me a couple times a week, for the rest of my life. I do not drive so I was dependent upon him to take me grocery shopping or to the doctor.
I did change my mind, as I became frightened that they were changing their attitude towards me, and perhaps they were not going to look after me as I continued to age. I told them I wanted to move to Florida to be with my daughter, that I would like to sell the home and I would pay them a generous amount for their time and labor. They immediately withdrew all funds (thousands of dollars) minus one hundred from my bank account. They refused to give me my money, and I was shocked to learn that I only owned one third of my own property that I had paid one hundred percent for. I had signed papers that made us joint tenants with right of survivorship.
I can never thank John Groseclose an attorney with GS Jones Law Group, in Port Orchard, WA., enough. He was able to get a sizable amount of my cash returned, and he made them see that it was in the best interest to sell or buy out my portion of the property. Without John’s help, these people would have just waited for my death and then they would have taken everything. I would have had only my social security to live on. I now have an opportunity to get my own home near my daughter.
This may not be a proper kind of letter, but I am just an old lady with common language, but then John represents common people, God Bless you John. Miss Pearl

Chalmers Johnson: Fights Like a Tiger for His Clients

Chalmers Johnson represented me in a personal injury case. He fought like a tiger for me to get justice. Fierce in the courtroom, he’s pleasant and easy to work with during case preparation. He was with me each step of the way and kept me informed, well-prepared, and comfortable throughout the entire process. I’ve dealt with other attorneys in other capacities so I am familiar with what it takes to make a good attorney: experience, legal knowledge and a passion for the law, fearlessness, ethics, the ability to listen, and the desire to zealously represent the client. Chalmers Johnson has all these qualities. He truly cares about his clients. I give him my highest recommendation.

He got me my kids when i thought all hope was lost

John was recommended to me by a family friend when my divorce became increasingly ugly. My now ex wife disappeared with our 2 children and spread numerous lies about me to anyone who would listen. John and his associate Sara Humphries were extremely helpful and worked with me every step of the way. when things seemed to turn for the worst for me they offered me not only great legal representation but words of encouragement that really helped me thru it. In the end during my divorce trial I don’t think one thing went against me.

After a long hard fight and with the extreme patience and help of Mr Groseclose I was awarded full custody of my 2 children who very happily reside with me now. Words could never explain my gratitude, John continues to be my attorney as my ex wife continues to cause many problems but he still shows the same diligence and professionalism that he did when this matter was first brought to him. I consider him not only a friend at this point but a part of my family. He can be a bit eccentric at times but truthfully that’s because he is so brilliant. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is going thru what I did. John will fight hard for you and you will be pleased with the outcome.

  • I recommend John Groseclose.
  • I hired John 1-3 years ago.
  • John handled my Divorce & Separation matter.
  • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

Got landlord-tenant problems? Go to GSJones!!

My roommate and I, two senior ladies, quietly shared an apartment in Port Orchard for four years. When we moved, we left the apartment structurally sound and professionally-clean. We were shocked the landlords sent us a move-out $1,500 bill for replacing the carpet plus other sundry charges…. due in two weeks! So, we asked GSJones landlord tenant attorney, Sara Humphries to represent us right away.

She was awesome. She got the apartment complex to replace the carpet themselves; they dropped all other charges and, refunded a small amount too. We were sooo relieved and happy. I know other tenants have landlord trouble.They need legal representation. I highly recommend G. S. Jones .They do fight for you! That I know for sure!!

Knowledgable, honest, creative, and comforting in a difficult time

Bob made my bankruptcy quick and painless. He was able to calm my fears and keep me on track after a messy divorce and difficult decision to file the bankruptcy. Bob was thoughtful, intelligent, and knowledgeable, and he found creative ways to deal with an unexpected snafu. Well after the paperwork was filed and the court appointments were complete, Bob continued to follow up with my case, making sure every detail was taken care of. I highly recommend Bob Garrison to anyone needing a skilled and considerate attorney.
