Review from a former Workers Compensation Judge describing the work of Tom Johnson
“The results obtained for the applicant were significant where the attorney took a case that defendants contended was less than a life pension case and obtained a permanent total disability award. This result is particularly significant for an injured worker who was under fifty years old when he was injured. The time involved included the deposition of an out of town doctor and two days of trial testimony. His care and responsibility were demonstrated by his development and presentation of the evidence. In the present case the applicants attorney was was very competent and knowledgeable in the area of workers compensation law.”
