Steven Johnson

Attorney at Law

Before becoming an attorney, I had a career as an accountant. With a desire to leave a more positive impact on the lives of others, I decided to pursue a career change and went to law school. Shortly after graduating with my J.D., I went to work with a group of attorneys to gain more experience. I initially took on estate and tax law cases, but after opening my own firm, I wanted to expand my services to help more people. As clients came to me with various needs, I worked to provide solutions that made a difference for them. Today, my practice focuses on the areas of criminal and DUI/DWI defense, estate planning, and family law.

"Attorneys who are professional and respectful to everyone involved throughout the legal process get better results for their clients."
