PHOTO #1: Known as “fighters” for its clients, Johnson Law held its annual Holiday Party December 3 at the Westin Book Cadillac in Detroit. The festive event, hosted by the firm’s founder, Ven Johnson (right), also served as an opportunity for party-goers to help the Mittens for Detroit organization. The charity’s “sole purpose is to collect, purchase, and distribute new mittens and gloves to children and adults in the city of Detroit,” according to Executive Director Wendy Shepherd, who is pictured with Johnson.
