WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Law Offices of Richard Tendler welcomes Attorney Christine Johnson, who joined the law firm's team in recent months. Ms. Johnson officially became one of the firm's West Palm Beach criminal defense lawyers in January 2014. She has six years of experience providing defense in various types of criminal cases through the Palm Beach County Public Defender's Office.
While working for the Public Defender's Office, Attorney Johnson was part of the serious felonies division. Throughout her career, she has provided legal representation for individuals charged with all types of crimes, including misdemeanors, juvenile crimes, direct file crimes (or crimes in which minors are tried as adults) and various serious felonies. She is no stranger to complex criminal cases, as she has handled cases that involved charges for attempted murder and first-degree murder. Attorney Johnson's professional background has not only given her experience in a broad range of criminal matters, but it has also made her highly familiar with how the local court system works, since she handled cases for the Palm Beach County Public Defender's Office. This is a major benefit to the Law Offices of Richard Tendler, which provides defense to clients throughout the West Palm Beach, Florida area.
Attorney Johnson attended Florida State University to receive both her Bachelor of Arts degree and her Juris Doctorate degree.

In the Children's Advocacy Project, law students and lawyers teamed together to formally request that the Governor offer clemency for juvenile offenders who had received life prison terms.
Ms. Johnson's new position at the law firm allows her to join forces with Attorney Richard Tendler, who is also a former Palm Beach County Assistant Public Defender. The firm's attorneys use a team approach, working with a staff of investigators and paralegals in order to work toward positive outcomes for clients.
