The Law Offices of Darwin F. Johnson Scholarship Criteria

Calling all law students entering or currently enrolled in a college or university!

My Story

After earning my Juris Doctorate law degree from Florida State University, I served as a Senior Staff Attorney to the Honorable Michael P. Baird in Clayton County, Georgia. Working within the Georgia court system, I witnessed firsthand how far insurance companies would go to avoid paying those that were injured due to someone else’s negligence. I found this behavior to be disturbing, and because I wanted to use my law education and experience to help people, I decided to fight for the rights of injured individuals. In order to go up against the unjust strategies of insurance companies, I’ve dedicated my practice to personal injury cases.

Do you want to help the average person fight big insurance companies?
