Chalmers Johnson: personal injury, employment & civil rights attorney

He began his career in South Carolina in 1995 clerking for a personal injury attorney. He soon focused on civil rights and employment law. Just five years later he opened his own law firm, Chalmers Johnson Law Firm, LLC, with two offices, and several lawyers, serving all counties in South Carolina. They focused on employment law/ civil rights cases and Chalmers soon began to represent clients in state and federal appeals courts. In 2007 he sold his practice in South Carolina and moved to Washington State where he continues his appellate practice and has returned his focus to personal injury. He retains his old love for civil rights and employment law, however.

Chalmers is an experienced and zealous litigator who really enjoys being a trial lawyer. He lives in Port Orchard on the water and kayaks three times a week and hikes as often as he can. He also enjoys the firm’s participation in the Reindeer Run each year.
