Paul W. Johnson has been a practicing trial attorney since 1985. Paul is licensed to

practice in the state and federal courts in the States of Missouri and Illinois. After

graduating from the University of Missouri Law School in 1985, Paul spent the first 22

years of his career as a defense trial attorney defending insureds and companies in various

types of cases-nursing home, products liability, construction, automobile, health care, and

employment-all to successful trial verdicts and often against all odds.


In 2007, Paul became a plaintiffs’ trial lawyer. He has found that his extensive

defense background assists him greatly in developing and resolving cases filed on behalf of

severely injured individual clients. In his 10 years as a plaintiffs’ trial attorney, Paul has

earned a $1.288 million jury verdict and several million-dollar- plus settlements on behalf

of his clients. Paul’s clients appreciate his tenacious advocacy on their behalf and the way

he keeps them informed and updated on their cases.
