After gaining his law degree at the University of Cambridge, Peter worked at the international law-firm Herbert Smith in the City of London before leaving to open the first solicitors' office in Docklands and he now operates from water-front offices on the Isle of Dogs. He is a member of Resolution and a Law Society Accredited Family Lawyer. He undertakes private client work, commercial work and litigation in the High Court and County Court. Peter also advises both employers and employees and is a member of the Employment Lawyers Association. Peter's wide-ranging experience benefits those clients who face issues that cannot be pigeon-holed, whether the company director seeking a divorce, or worried about a challenge to the business, the Canary Wharf worker concerned to save his or her job, as well as those who are coping with the trauma of family and business disputes. As Senior Partner of the firm, Peter works closely on a particular matter with other members of his team whilst retaining the overall control and connection with any client. When he is not in the office he will always remain a phone call away for his clients - even when on his fishing boat on the Cornish seas! 

Rates: Charging rates depend on the seniority of the fee-earner having overall conduct of the file. Don't forget though that a low hourly rate from a less experienced lawyer may be a false saving if that lawyer takes longer to do the job! The firm offers a free first interview - to assess what assistance can be provided and the likely costs involved.

    I know one thing. I thank god he was working for me rather than my ex. Some may think rates are high, but you really do get what you pay for. This firm was able to fend off a top flight solicitors firm. Kept me in the loop at all times and offered me paths to take with pros and cons. Rather than increase your costs, this firm actually suggests ways to save costs overall. If you are undergoing a divorce, choose them. They are fair and very good value for money. Shrewd tacticians.

    Peter is clearly a very knowledgeable and experienced solicitor and resolved our family law matter in a timely and sensitive manner.

    I first found Peter from Yellow Pages and thank goodness I did! I was involved in a complicated divorce involving 2 EU countries. His specialized knowledge was absolutely invaluable and saved me from disaster! Its totally thanks to him that I have had the funds to reestablish a good lifestyle and I can open a better quality of wine to-night! His advice was always practical and down to earth and I found him great to work with. I trust him absolutely and would definately recommend him.

    Comment

    I wanted access to a London lawyer to match the other side in divorce proceedings. What I think distinguishes Peter's service from the average is that he not only displays the knowledge and experience required but he combines this with cute psychological and tactical awareness. He allows the client to control timing and pace. He negotiated a brilliant financial settlement adopting toughness when needed. Fees more than a local firm outside London but you get what you pay for!

    Having known Peter for some time, he has been of great help to me in my 'business issues' Common sense always at the fore. A great depth of knowledge and if he doesn't know then he has a network to call upon. Only four stara on fees, as I never like paying fees! What i like most is that if i have a question, his advise is quick, secure and works. Really good to find someone who works with you. Thank you Peter

    Comment

    Peter recently handled my divorce. I knew throughout the process that I could not have anyone better on my side. Peter was quick to deal with my concerns and put my mind at ease whilst at the same time battling hard for the best outcome for me. What could have been a very traumatic experience was not, and I can only put that down to my lawyer. His experience, compassion and outstanding ability to fight my corner means that I could not recommend Peter more highly.

    AJLO and Peter Johnson have represented me for over 25 years both in a professional capacity providing expert assistance with employment and company issues for my business and in a personal capacity in family disputes and conveyancing. Peter's knowledge is excellent and he is always pragmatic and realistic - a valuable asset in a lawyer. I strongly recommend Peter and the firm without hesitation.
