Brady Johnson


Brady first joined Acheson Law as a summer student in 2020, then received his law degree from the University of Victoria in 2021 and completed his articles in the spring of 2022 – after which he joined the firm as an Associate lawyer. Brady grew up on southern Vancouver Island and looks forward to a career devoted to assisting members of his community.

Brady’s path to a legal career has been longer than most. He initially completed an undergraduate degree in Supply Chain Management at Brigham Young University, where he also competed as an NCAA division-one athlete. Following this, Brady returned to Canada and spent nearly a decade working in agricultural commodities trading – allowing him to develop strong negotiation, communication, and analytical skills. However after years of leveraging these skills to generate corporate profits, Brady realized he instead wanted to use his career to help normal people overcome the power imbalances they face in everyday life. This aspiration led Brady to law school and eventually to Acheson Law, due to the firm’s sole focus on plaintiff-side advocacy.

In law school Brady was privileged to represent the University of Victoria in the national Gale Cup Moot competition, through which he gained invaluable advocacy experience in the context of complex constitutional litigation. Brady also spent his final semester working at The Law Centre – a pro bono legal clinic run out of the Victoria courthouse. During this period Brady advocated for many clients in a variety of civil, criminal, and human rights matters.

Outside the office Brady spends as much time as possible outside – specifically trail running, cycling and paddle-boarding. On weekends he is most likely to be found on local trails with his wife and their rambunctious dog.
