Ada attorney in spotlight with magazine


Ada —

Johnson said in exchange for the bequest, college officials agreed to store Picher’s documents at NEO A&M. He added the college is renovating one of its buildings to accommodate a mining museum, and officials have established a scholarship honoring a longtime Picher employee.

With the college’s assistance, the Picher Miners’ Reunion relocated its annual get-together from Picher to the NEO A&M campus.

Johnson said he was surprised and pleased when Hale called him with news of the nomination.

“It was nice that he did that for me,” Johnson said.

Johnson learned that he was one of Oklahoma Magazine’s 40 Under 40 earlier this month, but he was asked to keep it to himself until the magazine formally announced the selection.


Recent developments

The Oklahoma Magazine feature isn’t the only new development in Johnson’s professional life.

In January, Johnson became the assistant district attorney for Coal County. He works as the assistant DA twice a week, and his duties include prosecuting felony and misdemeanor cases and advising the Coal County commissioners.

Johnson also serves as the city attorney for the town of Commerce, and he has a private practice focusing on business law and civil litigation.

Starting today, Johnson will merge his practice with the law firm of Mayhue and Stafford, where he will join his fellow attorneys Charles Mayhue and Susie Bolin.

Johnson said he has a good relationship with Mayhue and has assisted him on several issues, so combining the two firms was a good fit.

“Charlie’s principal area of practice is oil and gas,” he said. “I do a lot of litigation work, and Susie does a lot of estate planning. So it’s going to be a good marriage.”
