Mattias Johnson was born and raised on Traverse City’s Old Mission Peninsula. With a farmer for a father and a social worker for a mother, Mattias quickly learned the value of working hard and caring for others. Mattias attended James Madison College at Michigan State University as an undergraduate and attained a master’s degree in Resource Management as well as a Juris Doctorate from the University of South Carolina. Prior to starting his own firm he worked in two premier law firms in Traverse City focusing on intellectual property as well as his passion in civil litigation, criminal defense and family law.
Mattias believes in maintaining a strong work/life balance. While he understands that nights and weekends at the office are sometimes a must for someone in this business, he makes sure to spend whatever free time he has with his wife, son and handsome dog. He enjoys golfing, snowboarding, playing softball and spending as much time as possible exploring all that Northern Michigan has to offer.
