Get to Know Labor and Employment Attorney Corrin Johnson
Corrin Johnson recently joined Meyers Nave’s Labor and Employment Group as a senior associate in our San Diego office. Corrin provides advice and counsel to public and private entities on a broad range of matters involving discrimination, retaliation, wrongful termination, harassment and wage and hour disputes.
We asked her about her career path, why she decided to become a Labor and Employment attorney and why she chose Meyers Nave.
Why did you become a lawyer?
I love problem solving and helping people. Being an attorney gives me the opportunity to do both.
Why did you choose your practice area?
The labor and employment field touches all of us on a daily basis, whether it’s as employees ourselves or as patrons of a business. So many employers want to do right by their employees, but California’s laws are not always intuitive and are ever-changing. I enjoy figuring out the best approach to a client’s issue, while taking the stress away from them. Advising clients on how to avoid problems in the future is my favorite part.
Why did you join Meyers Nave?
The people. I feel extremely lucky to be working with such smart and accomplished yet down to earth people. There’s no better way to say it than as Janice Brown says, “It’s a vibe.” I am so happy to be here!
What is your proudest accomplishment?
During my time representing students with disabilities, I had a case where I was able to secure a much-needed change of placement for a child who had attempted suicide at school. After the case was resolved, the father of the student said to me, “You saved my child’s life.” I will never forget how incredible those words made me feel. That student went on to become an activist and was recently selected to participate in the first-ever Mental Health Youth Action Forum at the White House.
Where did you grow up?
A small suburb of Pittsburgh, PA.
Tell us about your interests and hobbies.
I enjoy yoga and gardening.
