Missouri Attorney Who Will Fiercely Fight for Your Legal Rights
My name is Jarrett Johnson. I have spent my entire career as a trial attorney here in Kansas City, Missouri. For 25 years—more than half my life—I have had the privilege of successfully representing everyday people. My success spans across the following types of cases:
personal injuries on business premises;
injury and death caused by defective products;
wrongful death claims for families;
sex and race discrimination in the workplace;
criminal defense—including jury trials, appeals, and post-conviction claims—for charges
such as murder, manslaughter, assault, robbery, 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, one of the country’s largest law firms with offices around the world, smaller law firms with narrow practice areas, and—since 2010—my own law firm. This experience has given me the ability to see all sides of a case, and give me a unique perspective.
In 2000, when I was just 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.
