OUR TEAMA Dedicated Team

SENIOR ATTORNEYChristopher G. Johnson

Chris, an attorney since 1989, brings extensive experience in handling tens of thousands of complex cases. While his practice is broad, he specializes in personal injury, including car and motorcycle accidents, as well as criminal and DWI defense.

Beginning his career in a small firm, Chris spent a year in general practice before joining the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office. There, he served as an Assistant District Attorney for 11 years, gaining valuable insights into the legal system.

Afterward, Chris worked for one of the largest personal injury firms in the United States before establishing his own law office. His decision to open his practice was driven by a desire to offer more personalized service to his clients.

The primary focus of Chris’s firm revolves around personal injury and criminal defense/DWI cases. However, the office also handles diverse matters such as estate planning, house closings, and traffic tickets.

Chris actively participates in professional development, regularly attending Jerry Spencer’s Trial Lawyers College. He is a proud member of the Academy of Trial Lawyers of New York State and the New York State Defenders Association.

Beyond his legal career, Chris is deeply involved in community service. He volunteers as a scout leader in Boy Scouts of America/Scouting USA, regularly supports a public defender’s office by cooking and serving meals at the Open Door Mission, coaches youth soccer for Irondequoit Soccer Club, and holds leadership roles in various non-profit boards.

Emphasizing his commitment to personalized service, Chris makes himself available during evenings and weekends if necessary. His guiding philosophy is encapsulated in Vince Lombardi’s words: “Success demands singleness of purpose.” For Chris, this singleness of purpose is dedicated to achieving the greatest success for each individual case.
