William “Billy” Johnson grew up in the Dorton area of Pike County, Kentucky, and early on decided to stay in the beautiful Appalachian mountains. Like many others in Eastern Kentucky, Billy’s dad worked as a coal miner, a hard job but one that taught his son how to meet challenges head on and persevere. Billy’s mother, Mary Anne, was a homemaker, creating a warm and welcoming place for everyone who walked through the doors. Billy’s decision to focus on personal injury law was deeply rooted in the compassion for others and strong beliefs in fair and equal treatment that he learned from Bill and Mary Anne Johnson.
After high school, Billy started his own successful DOT drug- and alcohol-testing company. This venture supported him financially through college and law school. He started his law career in 1998.
