About Us


Our Story


B. Henderson Johnson, Jr. and his oldest son, Barry H. Johnson, founded the Law Firm of Johnson and Johnson in 1980 as a general practice law firm. Henderson had a strong concentration in criminal defense, and Barry focused his practice in civil litigation.

In 1982, James E. Whittle, Jr. joined the firm and brought with him a background and focus in criminal defense work.

The firm expanded further in 1982, when Vicki Johnson Snelgrove joined the firm. She exclusively practiced family law, including divorces, custody, visitation and adoption. On July 1, 2010, she left the firm and is serving as a Family Court Judge for the Second Judicial Circuit.

The variety of offered services was increased in 1989, when Paige Weeks Johnson became a partner in the firm with a concentration in the areas of real estate law, family law and probate law. She also is a certified Family Court Mediator.
