About Us
Kerrie Johnson founded the firm in January 1996, initially trading as KERRIE JOHNSON & ASSOCIATES. Having started as a principal with one secretary, the firm has steadily grown over the years in order to meet the increasing demand for quality legal services.

In 1998, Tim Horsley joined the firm, becoming a partner in 2001.

In 2002, the firm changed its name to JOHNSON HORSLEY LAWYERS and in 2010, moved to its current address close to Wollongong train station and just a short walk from the Federal Circuit Court and Wollongong Local & District Court in the Wollongong CBD.

Over the years we have employed a number of solicitors, most of whom have worked for us as law clerks during their University studies. Our current solicitor Katie Vardanega, started with us years ago as our clerk and is now making a name for herself as an energetic and capable advocate.

Since 2008, the services offered by the firm have diversified following the launch of Wollongong Mediation Centre which provides FDR mediation to family law clients.
