Todd County attorney Harold Mac Johns recently announced that retired Circuit Court Judge Tyler Gill will be joining his practice. Judge Gill served the Seventh Judicial District as both District and Circuit Judge for more than 20 years before retiring on July 31, 2019.

“In making this announcement,” Johns said, “I am excited to have Judge Gill join Mark Collins and me. Judge Gill is a great addition to our office. His years of experience, wisdom, and insight will be of great value to our clients and us.”

Johns began his solo practice in 1990. From 1983-89, he practiced with Dillingham and Johns. Mark Collins joined Johns in 1997, and they have practiced together ever since. From 1990-2018, Johns served as Todd County Attorney in addition to the private practice.

The Todd County attorney received his Juris Doctorate from the University of Louisville College of Law in 1982 and his Bachelor of Arts Degree Honors Program from the University of Kentucky in 1979. After graduating from Law School, Johns returned to Todd County, where his family has roots stretching back more than 200 years.

Gill began serving Logan and Todd counties in 1995. He was a district judge for those counties from 1993-95. He received his Juris Doctor from the University of Kentucky College of Law.

“Mac Johns and Mark Collins asked me to come and work with them and Be of Counsel with them,” said Gill. “I have a few other things I am involved in so this will have to be a part-time situation, limiting the number of cases I take on, quality cases of interest. I am excited about the cases I have already. The law firm has a great bunch of clients. I like to help people, I get enjoyment out of it,” added Gill.
