My name is Jarrett Johnson. I have spent my entire career as a trial attorney here in Kansas City, Missouri. For nearly 25 years, I have had the privilege of representing everyday people in cases as varied as automobile accidents, injuries on private and public premises, defective products, serious personal injuries and wrongful death, and criminal trials and appeals involving murder and other serious felonies and misdemeanors.
I have been very fortunate to work in both the public and private sectors: for the State of Missouri, a large law firm with offices across the country, and smaller law firms. This vast experience has given me a unique perspective and diverse legal background.
In 2000, when I was 30 years old, the Missouri Bar Foundation presented me with the Lon O. Hocker Memorial Trial Lawyer Award in recognition of outstanding trial skills. Since the award was created in the 1950s, less than 200 lawyers in the history of the State of Missouri have received this honor. I am an experienced trial lawyer who has first-chaired nearly 40 jury trials to a verdict, and have helped other lawyers in many others.
I realize that people seldom come to a lawyer with good news. I welcome the opportunity to listen to you, and use my abilities as a lawyer to help you through whatever you are facing.
