HOUSTON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 9, 2007 -- Nick Johnson, a partner with Johnson, Burnett and Chang, has left to form a new law firm, Johnson Law Group, with primary offices in Houston, Texas.

"We're excited about this new venture," said Johnson. "While I enjoyed the partnership with James and Riley, it was time for me to narrow my focus. Our new offices will be in the Lyric Center in downtown Houston."

The new firm was created to leverage the Johnson team's concentration in the areas of Mesothelioma, PPH/Fen Phen, Paxil pharmaceutical cases and Nursing Home Abuse in more than 20 U.S. states and Mexico.

"As our firm began to grow into these areas, we knew it was time to drill down and focus firm resources even more in these areas," stated Johnson. "Riley (Burnett) and James (Chang) have been great to work with and it wasn't easy leaving. We're still great friends. But it was something I've always wanted to do," finished Johnson.

Nick Johnson was born and raised in Houston, Texas. He attended Duke University in Durham, North Carolina and graduated in 1988 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. He is a 1991 graduate of the University of Houston Law Center. In 1991, Nick formed the law firm that became Johnson, Burnett & Chang, L.L.P.
