Amy Rebecca Johnson

St. Louis, Missouri Attorney

Phone:  314-244-3617


Location:  Clayton, Missouri
Fax:  314-727-2101

 

Ms. Johnson’s practice concentrates solely in the area of family law: divorce, child custody, paternity and adoption. Prior to joining Paule, Camazine & Blumenthal, P.C., Ms. Johnson ran a successful solo law practice after graduating from Saint Louis University School of Law. It was during her solo practice that she recognized that assisting clients through the difficult times of family law cases drove her passion for the practice of law. Ms. Johnson understands the difficulties that her clients are experiencing and strives to put their minds at rest about their legal concerns so that they can focus on their own needs and the needs of their families.

When not practicing law, Ms. Johnson enjoys yoga, being active, cooking, spending time with her husband (and their dog and cat) and planning her next travel adventure.
