I have been an attorney since 1998 and have practiced in many areas of the law, but I have found the most rewarding work is helping clients and their families through the most difficult of times.
Derek F. Johnson
I live in a small town in Indiana with my wife and daughter. I grew up in northern Kentucky, the son of an elementary teacher and a pastor. I was one of those kids that always knew he wanted to be an attorney when he grew up. That is in no small part because of one of my Sunday school teachers who was an attorney and always volunteered his time to spend with the kids at church. Service to the community was a big part of my childhood and has been a major part of my life since.
I have had the opportunity to work in many areas of the law. It wasn’t until a few years ago, however, that I discovered what I wanted to do for the rest of my career. When I met my first mesothelioma victim, I knew I wanted to do everything I possibly could for them. I am extremely fortunate to work with a team of exceptional people at DOB+S and look forward to helping many more clients and their families.
