Attorney Gordon S. Johnson, Jr.
212 Whitetail Run Ln.
Sheboygan, WI


TJ was not an innocent victim of someone else’s wrongful conduct. He suffered his severe TBI in a high speed wreck, avoiding the police. Michelle, his step mom, paired her involvement in his recovery with advocacy for other survivors and their families. That advocacy in has made a huge difference in her community in Florida, where she is now the leader of one of the better TBI Support groups we have encountered. Our interview focuses as much on her role as did our interview with TJ about his deficits. TJ remains disabled, but is recovering some quality of life, due to the quality of his post acute care. Bicycling, as it is with other of our participants, is a key part of his day to day life.
