A Legacy Of Commitment To Our Community
The law firm of Johnson, Larson & Peterson, P.A., was founded more than 100 years ago and is located in Buffalo, Minnesota. Our attorneys provide a broad range of legal services to individuals and business clients throughout Wright County and the surrounding areas.
Johnson, Larson & Peterson, P.A., is a continuation of a law firm started in Buffalo by Stephen A. Johnson in 1905. Stephen Johnson was born in Austin, Minnesota, on July 2, 1870. After attending high school for one year, he left at the age of 17 and was engaged principally in the mercantile pursuits until the Spanish-American War. He then enlisted in Company C, First District of Columbia, U.S.V., and saw active service at the siege of Santiago de Cuba. After returning to Minnesota, he studied law with Ed Huebner at Winthrop, Minnesota, and was admitted to the state bar in 1901. In 1905 he began practicing law in Buffalo. In 1935, Stephen’s son, Walter S. Johnson, joined him in the practice of law.
