It means so much to know that the appreciation we have for our community is reciprocated. We value our one-on-one relationships and focus our work on people – not large corporations or big business.
Pikeville, KY (PRWEB) July 07, 2015
The Johnson Law Firm, a well-known Eastern Kentucky personal injury practice, is honored that the readers of the Appalachian News Express voted it the Best Law Firm in the Valley for 2015. Recognizing that the multi-weekly morning paper has a per-issue circulation averaging 11,000, founding attorney Billy Johnson says, “It means so much to know that the appreciation we have for our community is reciprocated. We value our one-on-one relationships and focus our work on people – not large corporations or big business. Back in March, we launched a redesigned website intended to better serve the legal needs of injured individuals from across the state, and now we are certain that our attempts at making those new connections was well-received.”
While the entire firm can revel in being chosen as tops in the valley, one particular member has twice the reason to celebrate. Out of all the lawyers in the valley, Brittney Schaeffer was selected as Best Attorney. Brittney is a local who has always stayed close to her roots. She obtained her Juris Doctor from the University of Kentucky College of Law, where she graduated cum laude. She also graduated summa cum laude from Pikeville College, earning a Bachelor of Science in History and Political Science. Prior to joining the Johnson Law Firm, Brittney clerked for Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Will T. Scott and interned for United States District Court, Eastern District of Kentucky Chief Judge Karen K. Caldwell.
“I’m originally from Louisa,” explained Brittney. “I attended UPIKE and played softball there. Now, I live and work in Pikeville, love cheering on UK basketball, and spending time with my family and friends. I also have two dogs of my own as well as occasional foster dogs that stay at my house instead of a shelter until they can find their forever homes. Being chosen Best Attorney is a fantastic surprise and just confirms for me what a welcoming and wonderful area this is. And to be part of the Best Law Firm as well is just icing on the cake! Thanks so much to everyone who voted for me and for us.”
