About Me

George S. Johnson has more than fifteen years experience in civil litigation, including five years doing insurance defense work. The combination of these two disciplines prepared him well and since 2008 he has headed his own law practice. He has handled more than 1000 cases in all phases of personal injury, and he also specializes in representing victims of nursing home and extended care abuse cases.


A former U.S. Army Reservist, George graduated Magna Cum Laude from Georgia State University. He received his law degree and master’s degree from Indiana University’s Maurer School of Law with a dual major in Law and Telecommunications, graduating Cum Laude.


He is a member of the Bar of Georgia (since 2000) and Pennsylvania (since 2013) and is licensed to practice law in both states. He is also a member of various Federal courts in those jurisdictions.
