Joshua A. Johnson

I have been a long time resident of Hastings moving here in 1993 when my father Chris Johnson joined the law firm of Conway and Connolly. I met my wife Bailey while attending Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa. I convinced her to leave Okoboji, Iowa and follow me to the Good Life where we were married in Lincoln in 2011. We moved back to Hastings when I joined Conway, Pauley & Johnson in 2013. We have a beautiful daughter, Harper that has really enriched our lives.

I enjoy the practice of law and furthering my understanding of the many areas of practice. I strive to have a calming presence and occasional voice of reason for clients facing difficult situations in their lives. When I am away from the firm, Bailey and I share a passion for traveling the world and we look forward to instilling that passion in our daughter. I am a Husker fan to a fault, I also enjoy playing soccer, hiking in the Rocky Mountains and spending time with the many great friends we have made in Hastings.

My wife and I really enjoy living in the Hastings community. We are fortunate to be surrounded by a group of young professionals that share an eagerness to develop this city as an attractive place for professionals to raise a family while also marketing the many qualities Hastings has in store. Hastings allows me to give back and in that vein I serve on the Hastings Public Schools Foundation, the Executive Board of the Downtown Center Association and I am an active Rotarian.
