Reed Johnson is a litigation attorney with Causey Wright. Reed focuses his practice on workers’ compensation and Longshore Act claims, and he believes that every worker should be treated with dignity and respect. Reed grew up in the interior of Alaska where he learned to survive in the frigid cold and work until the job was done. Before pursuing a career in protecting workers rights, Reed put in the hours as a carpenter’s apprentice for a general contractor.
While in law school, Reed served as an editor of the Seattle University Law Review, and he wrote an unpublished article on the needed expansion of liability insurance coverage. Throughout law school, Reed showed his commitment to excellence and social justice by graduating summa cum laude and by completing the Seattle University pro bono pledge, and he continues that commitment as an Eagle Member of the Washington State Association for Justice.
Before focusing on representing claimants in workers’ compensation and Longshore Act claims, Reed fought for clients who were being bullied by insurance companies in personal injury claims. As a rule 9 intern, Reed worked as a public defender where he was constantly appearing in Superior Court, advocating on behalf of his clients. Reed combines his life experiences and legal experiences in seeking justice for injured and disabled workers.
When Reed isn’t working for you, he can be found hiking, biking, and camping in the Cascades.
