Hunter & Johnson, P.C.

I was born in Jacksonville, Illinois, in 1953 and raised in Quincy, Illinois. I am a trial attorney and mediator of civil and domestic relations disputes.

I have over 46 years of court experience. I am licensed to practice law in the state and federal courts of both Illinois and Missouri.

I practice in the area of general civil litigation, including personal injury cases, workers’ compensation cases, real estate and title insurance cases, agricultural law, municipal and zoning matters, business transactions, business organizations, and contract cases.
