Elwood (“Woody”) Johnson, Q.C. - Non-Pracitising

Woody is an Edmonton native who practiced law for forty-four years. His clients looked to him for advice on real estate, corporate, commercial, wills and estates matters. He joined Barr Picard in June 2011 as a prelude to retirement from active practice.

All of his former clients have been invited to stay on with Barr Picard now that Woody is a non-practicing member of the Law Society of Alberta. He remains a member of the Edmonton Bar Association and the Canadian Bar Association. He has over the years served in numerous capacities both in the field of law and the community at large; he is past president of the Edmonton Bar Association, past chair of the Real Property Section of the Canadian Bar Association in Alberta, and a former board member of the United Way of Edmonton and the Edmonton Community Foundation. In the past, he has also lectured at the Bar Admission Course for articling students.

While he is no longer a practicing lawyer, those who wish to contact him may do so at his existing telephone number and e-mail addresses: 780.428.0706 and woody@woodyjohnsonlaw.com. He remains at Barr Picard on an Of Counsel basis and is also a part-time Justice of the Peace. He also retains his status as a Notary Public and remains registered with the office of the U.S. Consulate General of Calgary for the purpose of notarizing documents required in the U.S.A.

Woody’s focus is now on family, fitness and travel. He still enjoys getting his elbows on the table and sharing a plate of food and a glass of wine with good friends.
