Bjorn Johnson practices general business law with an emphasis on estate planning, municipal law and recreational sports law.
Bjorn is a native of Door County and graduated from Gibraltar High School in Fish Creek. He comes from a family with deep roots in the county, that has engaged in community involvement spanning across three generations, and which owns Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant in Sister Bay, the place with the goats on the roof.
While as an undergraduate, Bjorn majored in political science and spent his freshman and sophomore years at Arizona State University before transferring to UW-Madison for his junior and senior years. While at UW, Bjorn was heavily involved on campus serving as the student representative on the Wisconsin Athletic Board, and he interned for Door County’s own Representative Joel Kitchens in the State Legislature.
While in law school at Marquette University, Bjorn focused his legal studies towards earning a Sports Law Certificate from the National Sports Law Institute, and on all areas of the law affecting the federal, state, and local governments. Bjorn was able to gain significant legal experience by interning for the Wisconsin Solicitor General at the Department of Justice handling cases before the Wisconsin Supreme Court and the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, and interning for the Milwaukee Bucks’ in-house legal department.
On his own time, Bjorn enjoys downhill skiing in the winter, capitalizing on everything Door County has to offer outdoors in the summer, Badger and Packer gamedays on Saturdays and Sundays, expanding his knowledge on a unique curiosity for philosophy, and a year-round persistent dedication to physical fitness.
