" I hired Lara after an auto accident in which I suffered a traumatic brain injury, neck and spine injuries, shoulder and clavicle injury, and a leg being knocked out of alignment. I had been told by one lawyer, with another firm in town, that my case wasn't worth broken bones, no blood...and not to expect much compensation in the state of Oregon. I then spoke to Lara and asked if she'd be able, with her fee, to get me a higher settlement than if I negotiated with the insurance company on my own. Lara's answer, "Absolutely!" There was no hesitation; direct, resounding, confident. Much different than the first lawyer I spoke to and I knew "absolutely" that Lara Johnson was who I wanted representing me. Lara further impressed me with how thoroughly she handled my case. Within a week, Lara had sent out rep letters to the hospital ER, physical therapists, massage therapists, doctors and police requesting records relating to the accident. She even went to the scene of the accident to take photographs of the location. Additionally, Lara had me complete a questionnaire, which not only covered my medical history, but my educational and personal accomplishments, as well. She looked at my case from all angles. She was able to represent me because she spent the time to find out who she was representing. Lara responded quickly to my calls and e-mails and updated me monthly on the status of my year-long case. Thankfully, I didn't represent myself. Lara settled my case for the full amount of the insured's policy...You really, literally, can't do any better than that!!!"
