Biography

Respect for working men and women is the driving force behind Jay Johnson's commitment to workers' compensation law. It is a respect that runs deep. One of Jay's grandfathers was a Kentucky coal miner; the other, a member of the United Rubber Workers. Because both his grandfathers worked extremely hard in less-than-ideal environments, Jay has great empathy for those who get hurt on the job.

Over the years, Jay Johnson has recovered millions of dollars for people suffering from a variety of work-related injuries. He prides himself on thoroughly preparing for each case and staying in close, personal contact with clients. Jay travels statewide to represent his clients. He has argued cases at all 17 workers' compensation sites throughout the state of Illinois. He has also argued cases in many Circuit Courts and in the Illinois Appellate Court. Because he is bilingual, Jay works with a number of Spanish-speaking clients, many of whom are unfamiliar with the workers' compensation system and are greatly relieved to discuss their legal dilemma in their own language. His clients find reassurance in Jay's understanding, professional demeanor and his willingness to take even tough cases to trial.
