I have been a lawyer for 25 years, during which time I have predominantly represented injured people in pursuing compensation claims. In the last 10 – 15 years, I have focused on medical malpractice / medical negligence law and particularly claims arising from negligent medical care.

In 2001 I established my own firm, Julian Johnson Lawyers. Since then my firm has specialized in medical malpractice / medical negligence litigation and pleasingly, has grown to be the largest firm in this area of work in West Australia. It is Western Australia’s only firm specializing in this area of work. We presently handle more than 150 medical negligence cases. In the last 15 years we have handled and successfully concluded 100s of such cases, across the full range of health services.

I am regularly asked to speak publically on topics relating to medical litigation in Australia and particularly West Australia. Pleasingly, these requests come not only from legal groups, but also the medical fraternity. I have spoken at many medical conferences and in 2001 I appeared on the highly regarded 4 Corners expose concerning obstetric care at King Edward Memorial Hospital (given I was at that time handling a whole range of cases against the hospital concerning its obstetric services).

I am the only lawyer in Western Australia handling these type of claims, who routinely appears as their Counsel at trials. I have conducted more than 50 trials in the various Courts in Western Australia (I am happy to say, with good success!). I can be reached by email at julianj@jjlaw.com.au.
