William Eugene Johnson

About me

I am a third generation attorney in Palm Beach County. My Grandfather was an early pioneer of West Palm Beach where he practiced law with my father and Uncle. My father went on to be the State Attorney of Palm Beach County, State Senator and Circuit Court Judge. I'm married to Judge Laura Johnson and we have 3 children.


My office is based in CityPlace, in the heart of West Palm Beach, and I serve clients in the areas of personal injury and wrongful death throughout the state of Florida.

  • Armando R. Payas

    I endorse this lawyer.I have know Bill for over 33 years and had the privilege of trying a case with him a year ago. Bill did a great job. He obtained a substancial verdict for his client in a difficult case. His client received 5 times what the insurance company offered her. She was thrilled. He is an excellent trial lawyer. Juries relate to his honest down to earth style. He is bright, hardworking and really cares about his clients. I wholeheartedly recommend Bill.
