Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) March 12, 2014
Kyson Johnson, Special Prosecutor for the Texas Department of Insurance and Special Assistant District Attorney in the Specialized Crime Division of the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office, has chosen to become a partner at Parker Straus, LLP. The firm specializes in legal representation of insurance fraud, civil litigation, and coverage matters to a wide range of insurance carriers, corporations and individuals.
Johnson spent nine years with the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) and prosecuted nearly 500 insurance cases. The judgments in those cases awarded millions of dollars in restitution to victims of insurance fraud.
“In making my decision for this change, I felt that I could seamlessly transition into a new role and maybe even help stop fraud before it happens,” Johnson explains. Johnson’s prosecutorial experience will prove to be invaluable in working with Parker Straus, LLP’s clients, including some of the nation’s largest insurance providers.
“I believe this transition is an opportunity to fight fraud from the beginning stages instead of the end stages,” Johnson says. “In terms of combating insurance fraud, the work I do can go from reactionary to preventive.”
Johnson was named the National Prosecutor of the Year by the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud in 2011 and the Texas Advisory Council on Arson named Johnson the Texas Prosecutor of the Year in 2008.
“This is an exciting time for our firm,” says Parker Straus LLP Managing Partner Michael Parker. “Kyson is a well-respected attorney in Texas and across the United States. He brings with him an incredible wealth of knowledge that will benefit our clients.”
Open since 2001, Parker Straus, LLP has offices in Dallas, Los Angeles, San Diego, Houston, and Phoenix. The firm moved its corporate offices to Dallas in late 2012. Johnson will work in the Dallas office along with Managing Partner Michael Parker.
