Welcome to the official website for the Law Office of Theresa V. Johnson, the Law Before You Leap firm. I'm Theresa V. Johnson, attorney-at-law, the principal attorney for the "Leap Firm." As a former Intellectual Property Manager for the corporate icon, AT&T, I gained extensive corporate business and intellectual property management experience. I have a rich educational background from several of the most acclaimed universities in the United States. It is my heart's desire to provide you with one-stop, full-service, no-nonsense legal counsel with an emphasis in intellectual property (International and U.S.), immigration, business law and general civil litigation. I provide legal services to a broad spectrum of international and U.S.-based clientele spanning from individual artists and entrepreneurs to large businesses and organizations. I provide each of my clients with personal and friendly service at reasonable hourly fees and/or flat rate fees. As my client, you can rest assured that all "legalese" with be translated into simple, everyday English that you can understand and that you will not be shuffled around to lower level attorneys or have to deal with bureaucracy or politics.

In emergency situations, I am available after 5:00 p.m. weekdays and on weekends by appointment only at my conveniently located Westmont, Illinois office, where the parking is always free. I especially extend a warm welcome to all my fellow artists and entrepreneurs as well as solo inventors. Remember our slogan, "Law Before You Leap": Call 630-321-1330.
