Megan Johnson advocates for vulnerable people. Megan dedicated 17 years of her career to criminal prosecution and has tried over 180 cases involving child abuse and protection of the elder and disabled populations. Her litigation skills and tireless advocacy on behalf of crime victims translates now to civil practice, where her personal injury work includes litigation on behalf of children, older adults, and those with disabilities. Megan’s extensive knowledge of criminal practice is an asset to crime victims who need assistance navigating and accessing the criminal and civil justice systems.
Individuals that suffer from dementia are among the most vulnerable in our population.

What it’s like to work with Megan
“When the unimaginable happened to our son, Megan was our first stop. She has been with us every step of the way. She fiercely advocated for the best interest of our child, and at the same time took great care with our family. Megan’s experience, results, and compassion are remarkable.”
