James L. Johnson: ERISA Litigation Attorney

James L. Johnson Dallas ERISA Litigation AttorneyFor more than 38 years, James L. Johnson has been providing quality legal representation throughout northeast Texas. When you are denied an employee benefit or insurance claim, or damaged by a seller's deceptive representations, it is important to have experienced counsel on your side to help you secure the benefits and compensation you deserve. Insurance companies and merchants won't look out for your best interests. I will.

The judicial system can be a great equalizer, where corporate wealth and power can be overcome when the law and the facts favor the individual. But you need an attorney who will fight for your legal rights, and has the knowledge and experience to do so.

I have a track record of reported court decisions (some listed below) to demonstrate that I have that knowledge and experience, and can effectively present your case to the court.
