Wade Johnson

Lavaca County, Texas Attorney

Wade Johnson


Wade Johnson, a native Texan, is a commercial trial lawyer and licensed patent attorney raised in Alvin, Texas. His parents, a schoolteacher and chemical plant operator, instilled in him the important qualities of honesty and hard work. After graduating from Texas A&M University with a degree in Industrial Distribution, Wade began his professional career in the computer industry with Dell Computers. After years in the sales force, he decided to head back to school and pursue a law degree. In 2008, he graduated among the top of his class from the University of Houston Law Center and began practicing law at prestigious law firms in downtown Houston.

Although the Houston legal industry provided ample work, it was only a matter of time that Wade and his family would land in a small Texas town to instill in his children the same ideals he learned as a child. He brings the highest level of integrity and varied career experience to the Law Offices of Trent Nichols.

Wade represents clients in disputes concerning contracts, oil and gas, intellectual property, construction, manufacturing, employment, product liability, personal injury, real estate, and corporate governance.

At the outset of any dispute, Wade strives to thoroughly understand the objectives of his clients. From there, he develops a comprehensive strategy to best meet his client’s objectives in the most cost-effective manner possible. Due to the Firm’s low-cost structure, the expense for Wade to handle litigation matters is often half of what larger firms charge. Additionally, Wade’s litigation strategies keenly focus on the elements of a case that are important to the client and not on irrelevant ancillary details.
Wade works hard to resolve matters prior to litigation; however, when litigation is unavoidable, he has the experience and expertise to handle all aspects of your case from the initial claim investigation through pleadings, discovery, expert witnesses, mediation, arbitration, trial, and appeal. He looks forward to helping you resolve any legal matter that may come your way.
