Attorney Profile

I am Gregory S. Johnson, a Baton Rouge attorney who has represented individuals throughout Louisiana since 1996. While I have worked in a diverse cross-section of practice areas, family law has consistently been a significant percentage of my caseload.

While maintaining my solo practice, I have also worked for the Louisiana State Bar Association on its Hurricane Katrina disaster assistance hotline, and I worked for Southeast Louisiana Legal Services, providing free legal services to victims of Hurricane Katrina.

I received my undergraduate degree in finance from Louisiana State University and graduated from Loyola Law School in the top one-third of my class.

In addition to family law cases, I handle a wide range of civil cases, including personal injury, medical malpractice and real estate disputes.

Having experienced divorce personally with a young child, I understand how the uncertainty can cause stress during the divorce proceeding. That's why I place an emphasis on regular communication with my clients throughout the case.

With many family law matters, you do not get a second chance to obtain a better result, thus, it is critical to get things right the first time. I make sure you understand all of your options and the short- and long-term consequences of those options before developing a legal strategy.
