Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) November 11, 2010
Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, named Lynn r. Johnson as the “Kansas City, Missouri Best Lawyers Medical Malpractice Lawyer of the Year” for 2011.
Best Lawyers conducts exhaustive peer-review surveys with thousands of leading lawyers in America. Confidentially the finest lawyers evaluate their professional peers. The current, 17th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2011) is based on more than 3.1 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.
Lynn Johnson received particularly high ratings in this year’s Best Lawyers surveys.
Lynn’s trial lawyer peers in the surveys recommended him for his body of work in Medical Malpractice law, his abilities in the courtroom, his overall professionalism as an attorney, and his integrity.
Steven Naifeh, President of Best Lawyers, said, “We continue to believe – as we have believed for more than 25 years – that recognition by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of praise in the legal profession. We would like to congratulate Lynn R. Johnson on being selected as the ‘Kansas City, MO Best Lawyers Medical Malpractice Lawyer of the Year’ for 2011.”
Johnson earned his national reputation for securing justice on behalf of his clients against powerful interests and corporations who refuse to take responsibility for unsafe practices and products. Lynn Johnson has been recognized in The Best Lawyers in America for 25 consecutive years and is a member of the Inner Circle of Advocates, which is limited to the 100 top trial attorneys in the United States.
Raised on the family farm just east of Oberlin, in western Kansas; Lynn learned at an early age to take responsibility for his own conduct. His family’s basic moral concept directly relates to Lynn's work as a trial attorney -- fighting to protect the rights of individual consumers, injured as a result of irresponsible corporate conduct. This irresponsible conduct, left unchallenged in court, often leads to profits over people.
Lynn's formal education which began in a one-room country schoolhouse in Kanona, Kansas, led to an undergraduate degree from Kansas State University in 1967 and Juris Doctorate degree with honors from Washburn University School of Law in 1970. He is a life member of the Alumni Associations of both universities and has served as President of the Washburn Law School Association.
Lynn has been married for more than 25 years to Jacqueline Lovelace Johnson. Jackie has served for many years as Chair of the Board of Directors of Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute in Albuquerque, NM the second largest respiratory research institute in the United States. Jackie and Lynn have one son, William Randolph (Randy) Johnson Lovelace who is currently a senior at Connecticut College.
