Firm History

On May 21, 1989, the firm was founded by Steven A. Johnson and William S. Spangler, Sr. Bill retired shortly thereafter, and Steve focused his efforts on civil litigation and labor relations. Through the years, the firm has served a wide variety of corporate and individual clients. We represent corporate and business clients, from small “mom & pop” start-ups to Fortune 500 mega-corporations. We represent construction companies from local to national, along with architects, engineers and owners. In the area of health care providers, we represent individual physicians and large regional hospitals.

But representing clients whose needs were focused in the areas of litigation and labor relations was only a starting point. Through a process of attracting exceptionally talented attorneys from outside and hiring the finest young lawyers to build from within, we have evolved into a firm which handles all of our clients’ needs in a highly successful and individualized manner.

We are small, and intentionally so: our clients aren’t fungible and neither should be your lawyers. Johnson Ivancevich, LLP, stands ready to serve the needs of our clients at the highest level, with the most individualized representation possible, now and in the future.

How We Are Different

Our firm is professional and proficient, yet relatable; conservative and professional, yet youthful and energetic. The office environment boasts a comfortable elegance with all the convenience of technological advances that presents modern sophistication.

Our firm has stood through the changing landscape of Northwest Indiana (physical surroundings, economic up and downturns, and fickle legal trends) allowing us to effectively serve a variety of clients ranging from lower income individuals to Fortune 500 Corporations.

There are few firms of similar size that offer the variety of legal services under one umbrella. Some attorneys in the area that advertise services in a variety of legal areas they are often general practitioners that provide services in different legal arenas, but hold no particular expertise in any one area of the law. (“Jack of all trades, master of none”.) Where we are different is that we have attorneys who handle specific areas in which they have gained extensive knowledge and experience, and will refer their clients to other lawyers in our firm when the client’s need is better served by another attorney’s experience in that area of law.
