James R. Johnson / Biography
Jamie Johnson has been litigating cases for over 30 years. His strength is resolving disputes efficiently and achieving maximum results. Whether your dispute involves a contested will, a boundary issue, a construction defect, a traffic ticket or even a criminal charge; he can help guide you through the process, vigorously defend your rights and pursue your best interests. Jamie will thoroughly analyze the strengths and weaknesses of your case and make recommendations as if you were family.
In 2009 he was recognized by the Wisconsin Law Journal as a “Leader in the Law” and is rated Distinguished™ for high professional achievement by Martindale-Hubbell.
“I became a lawyer so that I could help people solve their problems. I enjoy being the advocate and spokesperson for people who feel they are not being heard. It is gratifying to bring peace and resolution to the lives of those that may be struggling with issues they cannot handle on their own. I am proud to do it effectively and efficiently.”
When he is not litigating cases, he is active in his community. Jamie is a video host/correspondent of a cable TV and internet show called “Western Wisconsin Journal.” He has served in volunteer and leadership roles in his church, school district and other local service organizations and is currently serving as President of the Hudson School Board. He also enjoys his family, running, working out and following his favorite sports teams.
