In Memoriam – Mitchell Johnson

October 11, 2023
It is with great sadness that we share that our friend and colleague, Mitchell Johnson, passed away on October 8, 2023.

Mitchell had a successful 45-year legal career at Sinkler Gibbs & Simons (now Haynsworth Sinkler Boyd), where he considered his colleagues his second family. His contributions serving as bond and underwriter's counsel are well known nationally throughout the public finance community. He was a member of the Charleston County Bar Association, South Carolina Bar Association and National Association of Bond Lawyers. His decades of legal work on major financings for student housing projects, universities, foundations, retirement communities, and healthcare facilities will continue to provide incredible benefits to young students, elderly residents, community members, and patients for many years to come.

Mitchell was a devoted husband to his wife Felicia, loving and protective brother and uncle, talented and dedicated lawyer, and an equally devoted friend. He could be counted on to provide wise counsel to those who sought it, in particular, the younger lawyers at our firm, and some graciously credit him for much of their success. That counsel will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him. 

His funeral service will be held on Friday, October 13, 2023, at 2:00 pm at Grace Church Cathedral and details may be found here.
