About Me

Jeff Johnson works in the areas of serious personal injury, wrongful death, medical negligence claims, and DUI defense. Prior to joining Johnson & Johnson, Jeff worked for three years as an Assistant Attorney General for the Washington State Attorney General’s Office. While with the Attorney General, Jeff worked primarily on unemployment benefit and worker’s compensation matters (work place injuries). This experience provided him with a great deal of knowledge and experience in handling injury claims.


Jeff is an active member of the Washington State Bar Association. In September 2013, Jeff was appointed to serve as the Southeastern Washington District representative on the Washington State Bar Young Lawyers Committee. Additionally, Jeff is active in the local bar associations in Yakima, Benton and Franklin counties.

Jeff was born and raised in Yakima. He is the son of Dick Johnson (attorney) and the brother of Alex Johnson (attorney). He graduated from West Valley High School (Yakima) in 2001. Jeff received his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Washington State University in 2005 and his law degree from the University of Oregon School of Law in 2009. During law school, Jeff clerked with the Lane County Circuit Court in Eugene, OR; interned as a Special Deputy District Attorney for the Benton County District Attorney’s Office in Corvallis, OR; and worked as a law clerk for the Oregon Attorney General’s Office in its torts and employment sections in Salem, OR.


In 2005, Jeff married his high school sweetheart Andrea. They have one child. Jeff enjoys spending time with his family, playing the guitar and supporting WSU Athletics.
