Michael R. Johnson

Founding Partner

Mike graduated from Purdue University with a Bachelor of Science from the School of Technology and from DePaul University School of Law with his Juris Doctorate. The law is in his blood, as his grandfather was a State Senator from Southern Illinois. Mike was born in Chicago and grew up a Cubs fan, a condition that has only improved with time. Following his graduation from Purdue University, he worked as Vice President of the American Arbitration Association while attending law school at night. After graduating from law school, he decided to try his hand as an entrepreneur. After founding a company that has since gone on to become one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of custom, variable-information barcode labels and asset tags, he decided it was time to get serious about practicing law. He moved to Springfield, Illinois and began working for the Illinois Department of Securities, followed up with a stint as an Assistant Attorney General. During this time, he was admitted to practice in Federal Court where he represented the State of Illinois, including the Secretary of State. This experience prepared him for his next step, becoming a Legal Advisor to the Secretary of State and eventually becoming a Hearing Officer for Administrative Hearings. All of these experiences are the foundation of his priceless understanding of the law that helps his clients realize success at Secretary of State Hearings. More than 20 years ago, Mike made the transition from working for the government to starting and running a private boutique law firm with a focus on representing petitioners at Secretary of State Hearings. His amazing networking skills, coupled with his passion for fun and adventure, has brought him a great degree of personal success that carries into his relationship with his clients.

Judd P. Goldrich

Managing Partner

Judd is the newest addition to our practice, joining as our Managing Partner in 2017. He is a graduate of Rutgers University where he received a Bachelor’s degree in psychology and was a member of the Psychology Honors Society. After returning home to Chicago, Judd earned his J.D. at The John Marshall Law School. Upon graduating, he worked as a staff attorney and law clerk for the Presiding Judge in the Circuit Court of Cook County in Skokie. He wrote countless legal briefs for many of the Judges in the courthouse and assisted in trials ranging from contract issues to attempted murder. At his next position, he found himself in legal consulting, analyzing contracts for the merger of two of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies. Attention to detail was the name of the game. This helped prepare him for his next step as a Legal Advisor to the Secretary of State for Administrative Hearings. Judd represented the Secretary of State as a Legal Advisor and prosecutor every day for close to two years, totaling more than two thousand hearings. He was soon promoted to a special prosecutor position, one of only two in the entire state, conducting the more complex hearings on behalf of the State. It was at this point that Mike knew he needed Judd on his team (despite Judd's lifelong loyalty as a White Sox fan) and persuaded him to leave the Secretary of State. This is how Johnson & Goldrich, PC was formed.
