Johnson, Toal & Battiste, P.A. is a professional association of lawyers engaged in the general practice of law. This professional association, chartered in 1975 by the trio of I.S.

Originally, the firm limited its practice to accident cases, criminal defense and domestic disputes. The practice has now expanded to become a full service law firm with individual lawyers concentrating in specific areas like personal injury, workers compensation, car wrecks, criminal defense, DUI defense, probate, nursing home neglect, and medical malpractice. The firm has grown throughout its existence to a current size of 5 attorneys and a support staff of eight.
