Review Michelle Johnson

About Me

Since 2000, I have practiced in the area of representing individuals and the families of those seriously injured or who lose a family member at the hands of someone else’s wrongdoing. I handle cases resulting from car accidents, claims against bars and drunk drivers, defectively designed and manufactured products, rollover accidents, unfair treatment of customers in retail settings, and excessive force and discriminatory practices of law enforcement. I have successfully tried cases to verdict in both state and federal court, and settled multiple multi-million dollar cases.
