Berrien County Michigan

Berrien County Michigan

For 25 years, the Peter J. Johnson Law Office, PLLC has been conveniently located at 800 Port Street directly across the street from the Berrien County Courthouse, 811 Port Street in St. Joseph, Michigan just west of the city’s charming downtown shops and eateries. Also located nearby are bondsmen’s offices, the post office, and several banks with ATMs, making our law office one of the most convenient legal practices for all your criminal and civil matters. In fact, many of our clients park at our office and visit with their attorneys before making the two-minute walk across the street for their hearings. Ease of accessibility is one thing many clients cite as a bonus for hiring our law firm.

More important than our prime location, however, is the reputation of integrity, honesty, and reliability that only decades of experience can generate in a small county like Berrien County, Michigan. Serving communities in Berrien County like Benton Harbor, Saint Joseph, Stevensville, Coloma, Watervliet, Galien, and Baroda for over 45 years, the Peter J. Johnson Law Office, PLLC has developed strong ties with the local practicing bar, the county judicial system, and local law enforcement agencies that greatly benefit our clients in quality of representation, positive outcomes, and saved time and money. Few attorneys in Berrien County – let alone across the state of Michigan – can claim almost 50 years of legal experience in a single area of practice in the same locale without interruption. Yet, this is precisely what you’ll find at our office. We are, without a doubt, one of the most reputable criminal defense firms in Southwest Michigan.

Beyond the borders of St. Joseph, we also represent clients in their criminal and civil matters in southern Berrien County with frequent trips to the South County Building located at 1205 N. Front Street in Niles, Michigan. With 25% of our business generated by south county clients, the Peter J.
