Attorney  Kendra Johnson  went to court with two clients who were being sued by their landlord for $3,000 in cleaning fees after he  removed their possessions just one day after posting an eviction notice. Kendra filed a counterclaim and represented the clients in front of  Judge Shera Grant , who issued a win-win ruling that the landlord owed the clients $925 but the clients also owed the landlord $925.

Attorney  Kenneth Baumann  obtained an uncontested divorce for his client including obtaining sole custody of his two children.
