Attorney Profile

As a partner at Johnson Knudson, Eric M. Johnson devotes his practice to assisting individuals, families, businesses, artists and musicians in Lakewood, Colorado, and the surrounding area with a range of criminal and immigration matters. Before entering private practice, Mr. Johnson spent 12 years serving the people of Colorado as a deputy district attorney. He is now often sought out by criminal defense attorneys for advice about how to approach cases involving noncitizens and the consequences that entering into a plea agreement could have on their immigration status. Mr. Johnson assists those seeking a new life in the United States to obtain appropriate visas or pursue asylum claims, and he also advocates on behalf of immigrants facing deportation in removal hearings.

Mr. Johnson earned his Juris Doctor from the Tulane University School of Law in 1998 and went on to be admitted to practice law before the state courts of Colorado, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit and the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado. While studying at Tulane, Mr. Johnson was recognized for his exceptional written and oral advocacy by being named to the Order of Barristers. He has argued immigration matters before the Board of Immigration Appeals, the Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer, the Executive Office for Immigration Review, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

In addition to being a member in good standing of the Colorado Bar Association, Mr. Johnson is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and currently head of the association’s Colorado ICE Immigration and Customs Enforcement Liaison Committee. He is also the chair-elect of the Colorado Bar Association’s Immigration Law Section. Due to his extensive experience, Mr. Johnson is frequently called upon to lecture on criminal and immigration law matters such as the constitutional duties of defense attorneys and the consequences of criminal convictions on immigration cases.
