Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

My name is Tom Johnson. I am a former law professor and I have practiced law in the field of workers compensation for over 25 years. I represent working people that are injured on the job. I believe everything should be explained thoroughly and in understandable terms.

Getting injured on the job can be a scary and life-altering event. Getting your worker’s compensation benefits can be a complicated process to get through that requires excellent representation.

Through my education and experience, I strive to make a difference in the lives of my clients by leveling the playing field against the powerful insurance companies who profit by denying benefits to injured people.
