DALLAS, April 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dallas attorney Kimberly Priest-Johnson is pleased to announce the opening of Priest Johnson PLLC, a boutique law firm focused exclusively on representing corporate and individual clients in complex commercial litigation and defending companies and corporate officers in white-collar criminal investigations and prosecutions.
Ms. Priest-Johnson is an accomplished trial lawyer with experience in numerous jury trials, complex arbitrations and major settlements. Her background includes representing individuals and Fortune 500 companies in a variety of civil commercial cases, as well as prosecuting and defending individuals and corporate entities accused of white-collar crimes.
"Opening my own firm has allowed me to focus my practice on those areas that I'm most passionate about," Ms. Priest-Johnson says. "My experience at some of the country's most highly-regarded law firms, and my work as a federal prosecutor, have prepared me well for this next chapter, and I'm excited about the opportunities."
Ms. Priest-Johnson has practiced at the Dallas firms Sayles Werbner; Meadows Owens; Weil, Gotshal & Manges; and Fish & Richardson. She also served as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney, prosecuting white-collar crimes, and worked as a law clerk to the Hon. Barbara M.G. Lynn of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas in Dallas.
Her clients include individuals and companies in the mortgage banking, telecommunication, real estate development, health care, accounting, aerospace, gaming and amusement park industries. Ms. Priest-Johnson's commitment to achieving positive results on behalf of her clients earned her recognition on the 2007 Texas Rising Stars list, an accolade limited to just 5 percent of all Texas lawyers.

In addition to her legal credentials, Ms. Priest-Johnson also holds a Master of Science degree in counseling/psychology, and regularly organizes and conducts mock jury trials. Her insights into jury psychology and behavior provide a significant added value for clients, whose futures often are decided by 12 jurors who are unfamiliar with the parties involved and the issues in question. In most cases, mock trials include both an attorney and a professional with a psychology background. Ms. Priest-Johnson has both, providing clients with legal and psychological perspectives from one trusted source.
