When Johnny Waller was younger and people asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up, he always had the same answer: “lawyer.” While most kids would say “astronaut” or “professional baseball player,” Johnny knew that he wanted to spend his days practicing law and defending those in need from day one. Fast-forward to the present, and he is licensed to practice law throughout the state of Georgia.
In order to make this dream a reality, Johnny dedicated himself to his education. By studying at the University of Georgia Terry College of Business in Athens, Georgia, he received his Bachelor of Business Administration. Following graduation, he temporarily moved to Minnesota to study at the University of Minnesota Law School in Minneapolis. It was here that Johnny received his Doctor of Jurisprudence; his childhood dream could finally become a reality.
Today, Johnny is a member of the State Bar of Georgia, as well as the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. His current practice areas include traffic cases, criminal defense (misdemeanors and felonies), landlord tenant cases, administrative hearings, and other types of civil litigation.
Each day, when the time comes for Johnny to leave the office, he chooses to relax in the form of watching sports. He is a self-proclaimed fan of “all things Georgia,” so it is not a surprise that he loves to watch the UGA Bulldogs, Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Hawks, and the Atlanta Braves. Although he may have lived in Minnesota for a few years, he is still proud to call himself a resident of the peach state.
Inside of the office, Johnny finds himself to be most passionate about a select few different areas of his job, with trial advocacy and motions practice at the top of that list. For him, achieving great results for his clients is such a rewarding feeling that is hard to beat, and he draws his passion from helping others. If this weren’t possible, he would not continue to be drawn to the legal profession. After all, the idea of helping people was what sparked Johnny’s childhood dream in the first place.
