    Attorney Profile

    The founder of his eponymous law firm that is located in Greenville, South Carolina, Brian P. Johnson divides his practice between criminal defense cases and family law matters. Providing dedicated representation to clients throughout the state, he is admitted to practice before all South Carolina state courts.

In addition, he has been named to The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100.

    In his criminal defense practice, Mr. Johnson assists people who have been accused by the state with having committed misdemeanor or felony offenses.
