Accolades aren’t new to Mr. Johnson, who was valedictorian of his class at South Texas College of Law. He obtained and served clerkships for two federal judges – the Hon. John D. Rainey and Hon. Gray H. Miller, both of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas. Mr. Johnson also has been recognized as a leading insurance coverage dispute lawyer by Chambers USA.
