Eric Johnson, ESQ.
Eric was born and raised in Charlottesville. He received his undergraduate degree from Randolph Macon College in Ashland, and his law degree from the University of Richmond, T.C. Williams School of Law.
If you ask Eric why he decided to go to law school, he will quickly tell you that at age 22, he was not ready to get a real job. Law school provided a great opportunity to postpone the real world. Three children, graying hair and almost 28 years later, Eric will answer that question a bit differently now. Losing someone close to you in an accident can have a profound effect on the path of one’s life. It wasn’t until a few years ago that Eric actually realized that his desire to assist clients with injury, disability, and wrongful death claims may relate back to his own personal experience.
Eric has litigated cases throughout the state of Virginia for nearly 28 years. From the Eastern Shore to Richmond, Petersburg, Powhatan, Chesterfield, Greene County, Charlottesville, Amherst, Bedford, Campbell, Lynchburg, Danville, and Northern Virginia. Trying cases is a uniquely rewarding experience that is really hard to explain, but it is the clients he gets to know and help that makes the practice of law so satisfying for him.
Eric’s practice focuses primarily on handling all aspects of injury and disability law. He handles personal injury litigation including, automobile accidents, tractor-trailer accidents, premises liability cases, wrongful death cases, Workers Compensation cases, and Social Security Disability matters.
Eric has been recognized by The National Trial Lawyers, Top 100 Trial Lawyers, and the “Top Lawyers” of Greater Lynchburg.
He is a member of the Lynchburg Bar Association, the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association, and the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives.
Eric has volunteered and served on the board for numerous organizations including the Jubilee Family Development Center, the Lynchburg Bar Association, and the E.C. Glass Foundation.
Away from the office, Eric enjoys spending time with his three kids, Will 20, Mack 18 and Kakie 15; and anything that allows him to enjoy the outdoors including spring gobbler hunting, running, mountain biking, fishing, and grouse hunting with his German Shorthair pointer.
