Thank you for the lovely obituary you shared with us (“Art Johnson, 1928-2022,” 3/17). When I was struggling to start my own practice, Art Johnson took me aside and kindly told me the government should provide grants to new lawyers representing injured and disabled clients. (These clients’ cases are contingent fee.) It made me feel understood, so I share his encouraging words with any new attorneys getting started in disability related law.
We’ve lost an extraordinary member of several communities. Rest in power, Mr. Johnson.
