Prior to his new role, Johnson was a deputy prosecutor for the Bonneville County Prosecutor’s Office. He handled felony cases and assisted people with substance addiction issues. Before that, he worked for a national Social Security litigation firm.
“In more than 1,000 cases, Johnson built a successful track record adjudicating federal disability claim and fighting for individuals to get the benefits to which they were entitled,” Skaug stated in a release.
“I like fighting for the underdog,” Johnson said. “The federal disability system is a maze and a minefield, and learning how to navigate it to bring positive results for my clients was immensely satisfying.”
Johnson, who is from Phoenix, Arizona, earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in criminal justice in 2013 from Arizona State University and his Juris Doctorate from the University of Idaho Law School three years later.
“Sean brings a level of commitment to his clients that is essential in personal injury law,” said Bruce D. Skaug, founder of Skaug Law. “Our clients have been injured through the malfeasance or negligence of others, and Sean has the kind of passion necessary to fight insurance companies and bureaucracies to get them the rewards to which they are entitled. Those characteristics will make Sean a great fit here in our firm.”
