About Garson Johnson

Clients, Not Cases.

We believe each client is worth of our respect and experienced legal representation that is focused on their individual need.  At Garson Johnson, we return calls and respond to emails.  We communicate with you about the status of your case.  We genuinely care about you, your family and achieving a positive result for your legal situation.  You are not just another case to us.  You are our client, and we take that responsibility very seriously.


"Respect is earned. Honesty is appreciated. Trust is gained. Loyalty is returned." ~Unknown.
For over 40 years, Stuart Garson has been helping injured workers in Northeast Ohio.  He has been a loyal servant to men and women that did not have a voice in a complex workers' comp system.  His loyalty has been returned by earning countless referrals from former clients, friends, attorneys, and other professionals. Today, Garson Johnson continues to be loyal to their clients and every day work hard for their clients' rights and benefits.

History Of The Firm


On March 1, 2014 the firm of Seaman Garson LLC formed two new firms: Garson Johnson LLC, partnered by Stuart Garson and Jeff Johnson, and Dennis Seaman's new firm Dennis Seaman and Associates LLC.

"Our firms will continue to have an excellent working relationship with one another and refer matters that are within the strength of each organization," said Stuart Garson. "Jeff Johnson and I will continue our extensive workers' compensation practice and related personal injury work including medical malpractice and wrongful death. We will also expand our reach into business litigation, partnership disputes and breach of contract."

Garson Johnson attorneys are now located in the Midland Building, (corner of Ontario and Prospect) 101 W. Prospect, Suite 1600, joined by attorneys Grace Szubski and Jim DeRoche. Dennis Seaman and Associates LLC will remain in the Rockefeller Building, 614 W. Sixth Street, and move two floors down to Suite 1400. Dennis will be joined by Michael Madden and David Meyerson.

Prior to Seaman Garson LLC, Garson & Associates and Dennis Seaman & Associates shared space for many years at the Rockefeller building at 614 W Superior Ave Suite 1600 Cleveland, Ohio 44113.


When attorney Lanny Solomon merged his workers' compensation and personal injury practice with Stuart Garson and Jeff Johnson in 2013, he felt confident that he was doing the right thing. "Both Stuart and Jeff have the same approach to law that I have since I became a lawyer 37 years ago," says Lanny. "They make their clients' needs their number one priority and do everything they possibly can to get the best and most equitable results. And like me, Stuart and Jeff were drawn to law because of our shared believe that everyone deserves a fair shake."

Currently, Lanny spends the bulk of his time in Florida, where he runs marathons, plays bocce and participates in many other athletic and volunteer activities. He is enjoying his retirement in the sun and traveling.


Call Us Today

Thanks to the hard working men and women of Ohio for allowing us to serve you. The workers comp system is very challenging. By no choice of their own, workers find themselves injured, off work, and desperate for answers and treatment. We are honored to focus on our clients not just their legal case. The best complement we receive is a referral from existing clients. The second best is their words of thanks and appreciation.
