Attorney Tonya S. Johnson graduated from Hampton University in Virginia with a degree in journalism. She enjoyed that field because it allowed her to meet people and to understand a bit about what has shaped them; this skill, she believes, serves her well today. A graduate of the Southern University Law Center, Johnson has been a practicing attorney for 18 years. Her practice focuses on personal injury and medical malpractice, and she takes great pride in being able to help her clients navigate the complexities of the legal system, oftentimes aiding them in obtaining a sense of closure. When giving back to the community, Johnson is drawn to projects that focus on issues affecting women and young people. She feels supported, both in the office and out, by her husband, prominent attorney Garron M. Johnson, and her three beautiful children.
