Let me start off by saying that if your looking for someone who is kind thoughtful professional down to earth easy to communicate with & is very pro active in how they do business & is 100% invested in you & getting the best outcome for whatever your situation may be than I would recommend jonny & rowanna. This was my first time that I needed to find a lawyer who could assist me with my situation. What stood out to me was at the end of our zoom meeting I remember saying to both jonny & rowann that I'm not interested in moving forward because I was more at fault than the lady who hit me so in my mind I'm thinking we'll this guy probably isn't going to want to take my case because it seemed like it would be an uphill battle, & he responded by letting me know that he would like to take my case & see what he could do & bottom line is that you"ll either have more than what you have now or you"ll be in the same situation. So I thought about it for a minute & decided to trust them to see what happens. So from that day on all the way til the case was resolved I've had a great experience with them. Rowanna explained everything to me in a way that was not complicated & always asked me that if had any questions or if I didn't understand she would ask. They are easy to talk with & made me feel like I was important & trying to get the best outcome for me. When my case was complete I was so grateful & appreciated for what they were able to do for me. Johnny & Rowanna are the best & will always have & want the best for you I know because they did that for me. Thanks again CHRISTOPHER

I worked with The Sorenson Law firm for about 5 months resolving a personal injury claim that occurred during a car accident I was in and I couldn't have been more happy with results. The firm was always responsive, quick to answer any questions I had and I could tell they had my best interest in mind. I would recommend The Sorenson Law Firm to anyone that needs a personal injury lawyer, they're great!

I cannot recommend the Sorenson Law Firm enough. After an accident, I was in a situation where I knew very little about my options. I reached out to my community for advice and Johnny’s wife was quick to put me in contact with him to get me some help. The insurance company we were dealing with was not the easiest, but Johnny and his team did a wonderful job at recovering my losses and fighting for me. Johnny and his team kept me well informed and educated throughout the process, which meant a lot as I was very naïve and knew very little going into this process. I feel fortunate to have crossed paths with this wonderful team, and if life ever throws another curve ball, I’ll be sure to use the Sorenson Law Firm again!!!
