Summary

Gary R. Johnson is a personal injury lawyer and has been advocating cases since 1994. He began his career as am attorney in Portland, Oregon, representing people injured in car accidents, and has tried and won many jury trials.

In 2003, he started leading the litigation department of a law firm in Bend, allowing him the opportunity to practice personal injury law while raising his family in beautiful Central Oregon. He now uses his 20+ years of experience to ensure his clients are fully and fairly compensated for their injuries.

Philosophy:
I believe in fairness. People harmed in car or slip and fall accidents should receive reasonable compensation for their injuries, and for the hassles they are forced to endure.

More and more, insurance companies are not honoring their commitments anymore. That frustrates me, and makes me work harder to ensure my clients are not taken advantage of. Fairness works both ways though. I also believe people should not necessarily recover unreasonable amounts just because they were injured.

If you want an experienced attorney who will fight for your rights – and will fight harder when the going gets tough – I’m your man.
