More About Yanique Johnson
I was born and raised by my grandparents in the beautiful island of Jamaica. Through observing my grandma, I developed a fascination with personal finance and through friendly arguments with my “Papa”, I fell in love with the law. From both, I learned the importance of tempering strength with compassion.
When I permanently migrated to the United States, I opted to spend two years at Broward College before completing my undergraduate degree at Florida International University, where I graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a minor in Psychology. Dissuaded by my professors from taking a “gap year”, I enrolled immediately at the Florida International University College of Law at 19 years old. I completed law school and was admitted to the Florida Bar at 23 years old.
Throughout my legal career, I have primarily practiced in areas of law related to personal finance: foreclosure, credit card defense and settlement and bankruptcy. Not only have I fought hard to achieve the best results possible for my clients, but I have literally and figuratively held their hands as we navigated the legal process together. I am a public servant at heart and like helping people to find both the confidence, strength and strategy to address their personal financial struggle.
