Samuel B. Johnson, Attorney, PLLC



Samuel B. Johnson, Attorney, PLLC

Practicing law is a noble calling. I try to follow in the footsteps of such lawyers as Thomas More, Abraham Lincoln and Mohandas Gandhi. Closer to home, my model is the fictional character, Atticus Finch, from Harper Lee's novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. Basically I want to serve people by helping them solve problems.

Rather than getting rich by serving the rich, I would prefer to earn an honest living by serving normal, everyday people with their legal needs.

I strongly support and want to work aggressively for full legal equality and social acceptance of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgendered people.

LGBT people have special legal needs. Their committed relationships need to be accompanied by appropriate legal arrangements such as, where needed, joint ownership of property, legal resolution of the relationship of both partners to any children, needed will and estate arrangements, mutual powers of attorney and health care decision making authority, etc. LGBT people may have special issues related to health care and receiving health care benefits to which they are entitled. Family law issues may be particularly complex or difficult for LGBT people, including divorces and child custody disputes. Even in legal matters that do not of themselves raise LGBT issues, e.g., contract disputes or landlord tenant disputes, LGBT people may face discrimination and attempts by others to use their LGBT status as a weapon against them. In all these matters LGBT people need legal representation by someone whom they can trust, who is well informed, and who is active in the LGBT community.
