About Attorney Genelle Johnson
(also known as Genelle M. Johnson)
We live in a country created by families. At first, that may seem like a strange statement, but families of all shapes and sizes make up the fiber of our communities and our daily lives. So while many attorneys who focus on family law have complicated reasons for doing so, attorney Genelle Johnson's reason is simple. To her, there is simply no other area of law that is as important.
While many law practices are concerned with tangible benefits, she believes family law is different. Family law cases deal with heartbreak and the future of your family and children. Genelle is drawn to these cases because it gives her a chance to help people in ways that are far more valuable than money or possessions alone.
But ultimately, Genelle's goal is to give her clients a life full of health and happiness to look forward to. Divorce can be an extremely alienating process that puts some of the worst moments of your life on the table for all to see. Throughout a case, she promises her clients to not only be an effective advocate for their cause but a friend during an extremely difficult time.
Genelle knew she had the knack for law at a young age. In a high school speech class, she got so worked up during a debate that she managed to convince an entire class to her side. Her teacher made the offhand remark that she should be a litigator. She agreed.
Her career started in the Outagamie County District Attorney's Office before she went on to establish her own firm. Later, she became a Managing Partner with Holloway & Johnson for six years before joining Diversified Investigation as an in-house counsel. There, she established herself as a solo practitioner for another four years before becoming Managing Partner at SLO Fox Valley. And now, she has brought her years of experience to Sterling Law Offices, where she focuses exclusively on family law.
Born and raised in Neillsville, WI, Genelle loves small-town Wisconsin. The people are down to earth, hard-working, family-oriented and friendly. She now lives in Manawa, WI, a country town with a scant population of 1300 people, surrounded by wildlife, farmland, and room to roam. Just how she likes it. So it's no surprise that outside of her work, she loves to fish or take her nieces and nephews up to Bear Lake Resort to swim at the beach. When she's not out exploring nature you might find her in Miller Park, where tailgating is taken more seriously than the actual game, or sampling food and wine in Door County.
