Andrea Johnson, or "AJ" as her friends call her, has practiced in the areas of employment and commercial litigation for more than 29 years. Earlier, she spent two years as a briefing attorney for the Honorable Hugh Gibson, Jr., U.S. District Court, Southern District of Texas.
AJ's focus is simple: to seek the most expedient and effective way to resolve matters and to work closely with clients on prevention and training protocols to avoid litigation entirely. She developed her determined and successful approach from years of experience handling a variety of dockets in the areas of employment, general commercial, and product liability law. Her favorable results include obtaining a summary judgment invalidating a patent; obtaining a summary judgment in an employment case of first impression involving a transsexual; obtaining a complete defense verdict in a $54 million alleged slander suit in Galveston County (cited in the "Biggest Suits" section of Texas Lawyer); and obtaining a complete defense verdict in a multimillion-dollar Deceptive Trade Practices Act case in Harris County. She has represented clients in and outside of Texas and has successfully enforced mandatory arbitration programs for clients in several states. Her experience is not just at trial, in arbitration, and in mediation, but also on appeal, both in state and federal appeals courts.
AJ has a particular passion for training management and supervisors in order to avoid litigation problems involving employees. She offers a one-hour, interactive management seminar that provides an overview of employment litigation in regards to both the law and the financial impact on companies. The program, "Everything You Wanted to Know about Employment Law, But Were Afraid to Ask!," is designed to impress upon managers and supervisors the importance of their role in avoiding employment litigation and about the critical necessity of documentation, appropriate language usage, and proper timing of action in employment matters. Please contact AJ if you are interested in booking this informative, fun, and thought-provoking seminar.
