Eric D. Johnson

General Counsel

Eric Johnson is General Counsel for CARE USA since 2013. Prior to that, Eric was Deputy General Counsel and Associate General Counsel, focusing largely on general practice areas with specific expertise in compliance. Before joining CARE, Eric practiced law in-house at the World Vision in Washington, DC from 2002 to 2005, a large Christian charity, and in the boutique firm of Jarrard & Richard in Bethesda, MD from 1998-2001. Before law school, he worked for AMIDEAST in Washington, DC, a charity focusing on education and training in the Middle East.

Eric spent five years as a child in Cairo, Egypt, and his family later lived in East Jerusalem, Israel for 10 years. This experience led to his interests in the work of international charities. He received his J.D. from Syracuse University in Syracuse, NY in May 1998, and his B.A. from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN, in May 1992. He and his wife Megan live in Decatur, GA with their three sons.
