About David Johnson

Alongside my small practice, I continue to do some teaching. For the last ten years or so I've taught Advanced Negotiation, mostly for law and business students, at the Stanford Law School. More recently, I created a course exploring the application of design-thinking to law and policy, which I co-teach at the Stanford School of Design (d.school).

Professional References

I recommend David Johnson.

Kristen Killian, colleague of David

This is the easiest and most certain recommendation for any professional that I could give, because my opinion of Mr. Johnson is uniquely positive. He is more competent, ethical, knowledgable, trustworthy and committed than any other professional I have ever engaged. (Of any kind- not just in "lawyering".) He has successfuflly represented and advised me in matters of intellectual property, technology, negotiation, general business law and development, and- as I have prevailed upon him given his excellent performance in these matters- I have also come to highly value his counsel in personal issues, as well. Mr. Johnson posses a keen intellect and is broadly informed. He is creatively energetic, finding unique and unexpected ways to address a client's issues. And, all of this occurs without obscuring his ability to easily and respectfully communicate with diverse people from virtually any walk of life. As someone who has had plenty of experience with other attorneys who did not posses similar skills and personal personal acumen, I can aggressively recommend Mr. Johnson without any reservations what-so-ever.
