ABOUT ALICIA JOHNSON

I was born and raised in Reno, Nevada, and I am committed to serving this community. I graduated from Gonzaga University in 2001 with a degree in Public Relations and a women's golf scholarship. I obtained my law degree, cum laude, at Seattle University. While in law school, I worked for two small businesses, a boutique employment litigation firm and a small family law firm.

After graduation, I practiced law in Kirkland, Washington for over two years in the areas of real estate, business, and estate planning. I moved back to Reno with my husband in 2007 to return to my hometown and to be close to family. Since returning to Reno, I have practiced law all over Northern Nevada, serving the needs of small businesses and families and gaining valuable experience in the areas of business, real estate, family law, wills, trusts, probate, and litigation.

My goal at Johnson Law Practice, PLLC is to provide accessible legal services to small business and families.

ORRIN JOHNSON

Orrin Johnson has been practicing criminal law in Northern Nevada for over a decade.

Orrin grew up in Rapid City, South Dakota, where he was active in theater and debate, and worked as a taekwondo instructor. He received a BA in Political Science from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities in 1998.

After graduation, Orrin served as a Surface Warfare Officer in the Navy from 1998 – 2004. He served aboard two destroyers – as the Electrical Officer aboard USS Russell (DDG 59) and as the Navigator of USS Paul F. Foster (DD 964) – deploying three times in four years. During these deployments, Orrin was assigned to lead boarding teams to search and sometimes seize vessels violating sanctions then in place against Iraq. After his sea tours were completed, Orrin finished his Navy time as the Commanding Officer of Naval Reserve Center, Everett, WA.

Upon leaving the service, Orrin attended law school at the University of Washington – Seattle, receiving his JD in 2007. He then moved to his wife’s home town of Reno, Nevada, where he worked for the Washoe County Public Defender’s Office until 2012. During that time, he was assigned to be the office’s legislative liaison during the 2009 and 2011 sessions, lobbying on various issues related to indigent criminal defense. In 2012, Orrin became a Deputy District Attorney, first in Lyon County, and then for Carson City where he worked as a prosecutor for six years. Based on a survey of other attorneys statewide, Orrin has been recognized by Nevada Business Magazine in its “Legal Elite” edition as one of the state’s top public sector attorneys in 2009, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. In 2019 he received the same recognition for his work in his own firm.

After eleven years both defending and prosecuting criminal cases in the public sector, Orrin started Orrin Johnson Law, a division of Johnson Law Practice, in Reno, Nevada. The skills, knowledge, and tricks of the trade only former prosecutors know are now available to help defend you from any criminal allegation.

In addition to his legal practice, Orrin is a weekly columnist for the Nevada Independent, writing about law, politics, and public policy.
