I was born and raised in Reno, Nevada, and I am committed to serving this community.  I graduated from Gonzaga University in 2001 with a degree in Public Relations and a women's golf scholarship.  I obtained my law degree, cum laude, at Seattle University.  While in law school, I worked for two small businesses, a boutique employment litigation firm and a small family law firm. 


After graduation, I practiced law in Kirkland, Washington for over two years in the areas of real estate, business, and estate planning.  I moved back to Reno with my husband in 2007 to return to my hometown and to be close to family.  Since returning to Reno, I have practiced law all over Northern Nevada, serving the needs of small businesses and families and gaining valuable experience in the areas of business, real estate, family law, wills, trusts, probate, and litigation.


My goal at Johnson Law Practice, PLLC is to provide accessible legal services to small business and families.

Helped Me With a Owner/Seller Carry Deal in Reno NV
Ms. Johnson was a great and affordable real estate legal help for a successful deal in Southwest Reno. She was prompt and helpful for both the seller and I. I sent her the basic terms of our deal and she promptly created a legal document that both seller and I agreed upon. Thank you Ms. Johnson! -Ethan, real estate investor

Knowledgeable and Honest
I found Alicia Johnson to be honest and knowledgeable. Working with her was refreshingly easy.

Family Law Attorney
Reviewing Alicia Johnson as a professional as well as a person is an effortless task. In our work together, I found her to be kind, strong, knowledgeable and attentive. She is curtious and extremely patient. During the divorce process, I was appreciative of her ability to be aggressive, when necessary and articulate in her field of expertise. She did her work, research and client follow-up in a timely manner. Alicia added just enough humor and light conversation to make much of "the difficult", palatable. I would highly recommend her to those needing guidance and assistance in this area of family law. I was pleased with the outcome of my settlement. She knew what was "doable," and she was very fair and "grounded" in her decision making. Alicia is tops in her field and I felt comfortable in having her represent me during this extremely important and relevant time.

Knowledgeable, Personable, and A Great Communicator
I recently engaged Ms Johnson to review a real estate purschase agreement that I needed to sign in order to purchase a commercial building. She promptly finished her review and I ended up buying a great building for my growing business.

Very positive experience and outcome
Alicia helped me with an issue that grew into two separate situations, both while I was living in the Seattle area and moving to China. They were a bit complex and involved a few parties, and she handled them with skill, care and expertise. I would hire her again if needed, and highly recommend her to those looking for solid representation.

Client for Life!
I have lived 34 years on this earth without ever needing an attorney. Several years ago while dealing with Wells Fargo Bank, it became apparent I should consult an Attorney. I found Alicia Johnson through a recommendation from a friend. Alicia's diligence and professionalism in handling my case impressed me greatly. From that point forward, I decided that I would have Alicia handle all my personal and business matters that warranted legal assistance/advice. I do not hesitate recommending Alicia to those in search of an Attorney.

My personal review of Alicia Johnson's perfessional expertise, competence and ethics.
Alicia Johnson helped me with a wrongful termination mediation. She was supportive , attentive, knowledgeable and trustworthy. I could not have done it without her. There have been other issues that I have used her for such as trusts, restrictive covenants,easements, lease and maintenance on my property and general legal questions. She is very and efficient and timely in all the cases I have used her for.

Exemplary Service
I contacted Alicia for help with a contractual dispute between myself and my ex-employer. There were several different parts of the contract at issue. Alicia was very prompt in responding to my questions with knowledgeable answers, and her professionalism was impressive. She kept me informed throughout the process to the point that I did not find it necessary to keep contacting her. My issues were all resolved to my liking, and the entire experience was actually quite pleasant. I would recommend Alicia without hesitation.
