Allyson S. Johnson took a circuitous route to becoming an attorney. She is originally from San Antonio, Texas and lived there until she attended Baylor University. During her time at Baylor, she studied abroad in China and took numerous Mandarin Chinese language classes. She received her B.A. from Baylor in 2009 in International Studies with a focus on Asian Studies. After graduating, she worked a variety of jobs until she became a paralegal at a boutique securities law firm in Houston which inspired her to pursue her J.D.
Allyson attended South Texas College of Law Houston where she worked as a law clerk for the same boutique law firm where she was formerly a paralegal. In addition to working as a law clerk, she interned for Chief United States Bankruptcy Judge David R. Jones. She received her J.D. in 2018 and was admitted to practice in 2019. Allyson began her career at an oil & gas law firm in the energy corridor handling litigation matters and representing creditors in commercial Ch. 7 & Ch. 11 bankruptcies.
Allyson joined Henneman Rau Kirklin & Smith LLP as an associate in February of 2021.
