Linda Johnson, Appeals Attorney
I met John Birdsall at the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College in 2015 as a classmate. The goal of attending was to improve and learn new trial and advocacy skills, in order to achieve the best results for our clients. John was dedicated to learning the new methods and fully immersed himself in that process. He has a brilliant mind, broad experience, and the gift of oral presentation that is second to none, which he uses to fight tirelessly for his clients.
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Reprimand means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
