Veteran Trial Lawyer Randy Johnston Inducted into Lawdragon Hall of Fame

Legendary Dallas attorney honored for pioneering professional malpractice expertise

DALLAS – Johnston Tobey Baruch partner Randy Johnston has earned selection into the prestigious Lawdragon Hall of Fame class of 2023 for his expertise in legal malpractice litigation. This is the latest recognition for the veteran trial lawyer who has earned a national reputation for his pioneering work and for his tenacity and dedication to the legal industry.

“To be recognized on a list of such esteemed lawyers is a great honor,” said Mr. Johnston. “Dedicating my life to this profession was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, and I am truly grateful.”

Mr. Johnston handles cases involving professional malpractice and breaches of fiduciary duty, as well as a wide range of business disputes. Throughout his career, Mr. Johnston has also been recognized for his work in commercial litigation and litigation involving mergers and acquisitions.

The Dallas-based attorney is Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. His many other accolades include being featured on D Magazine’s annual Best Lawyers in Dallas list each year since 2013 as well as selection to the publication’s inaugural Hall of Fame in 2022. Mr. Johnston was also listed in Lawdragon’s 500 Leading Plaintiff Financial Lawyers and is a repeat honoree of Texas Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America legal guides.

However, Randy’s work does not tell the entire story. The father of eight children is also a published poet, songwriter, and passionate guitar player. His regional bestseller, Robbed at Pen Point is an entertaining and informative examination of white-collar fraud, drawing on Mr. Johnston’s high-profile cases and professional experiences.  “The point of the book,” says Johnston, “is to beware of scams that come in all shapes and stripes and be responsible for your own money.”
