Community Involvement

From 2006 to 2009, Marc was the founder and head coach of the Reed College Mock Trial Program, where he taught and shared litigation skills with college students. After starting the program, Mr. Johnston led the team to a national competition, where it received an honorable mention in only the second year of the program’s existence.

Marc is a board member of the Oregon New Lawyer Division, where he represents more than one-third of the attorneys in the state. Johnston Law Firm, P.C. is also proud of its work on the board of the Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP), which assists lower income attorneys to continue their work in public service sectors.

Attorney Johnston also works on the Oregon State Bar Mentor Task Force, which is preparing to implement an extensive and broad-ranging attorney mentor program in Oregon.

Additionally, he chairs the Sports Committee for the Portland Chapter of the Gonzaga Alumni Program in Portland.

These and many other affiliations keep our firm active in the community, helping others pursue opportunities and remain engaged.
