Gary C. Johnson and his firm are listed in the Martindale Hubbell Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers and he has been named a Kentucky Super Lawyer for the last two years. In 2008, Gary C. Johnson was awarded the Peter Perlman Outstanding Trial Lawyer of the Year Award by the Kentucky Justice Association for his work as an advocate for the rights of the people and his service as a mentor to young lawyers in the state.

Gary C. Johnson continues to devote the majority of his time to the day-to-day practice of law. His firm’s practice consists entirely of Plaintiff personal injury cases in the fields of vehicular negligence, products liability, and medical malpractice. In the last few years, however, Gary has devoted some of his time to the education of other trial lawyers. He has presented seminars for the Kentucky Bar Association, Kentucky Justice Association and the American Association of Justice on trial strategy and how to maximize damages in your case.

Over a period of four years, Gary was involved in national research of juror attitudes. Gary C. Johnson, David Ball, Don Keenan, and Jim Fitzgerald set out to determine if there was a way to counter the insurance companies’ propaganda which had literally poisoned modern jurors against injured victims. After four years of focus groups across the country the group concluded that there was an answer. A decision was made to share the research with other plaintiff lawyers and this led to the publication of the book, “Reptile  The 2009 Manual of the Plaintiff’s Revolution”. David Ball and Don Keenan, two members of the research group are the authors of this book. This research “wrote the book” for the modern approach to jury persuasion.
