About Me

Charles Johnson is a graduate of The University of Texas at Austin, and the University of Houston Law Center. After graduating from the University of Texas, where he was an All-Southwest Conference and Pre-Season All-American Football and Track star, Mr. Johnson played football for the NFL’s Denver Broncos and New York Giants. At the time of Mr. Johnson’s retirement from the NFL, he was under contract with the former Houston Oilers, now the Tennessee Titans. After the NFL, Mr. Johnson settled down in Houston to start his legal practice, The Charles Johnson Law Firm, and is now known as The Houston Lawyer.
