Sarah Beth Johnson is a Labor and Employment attorney at Fox Rothschild in Atlantic City. As an attorney, she has been included in the list of “New Jersey Rising Stars” by New Jersey Monthly Magazine and Law & Politics Magazine (2011-2012) as well as AC Weekly’s “Top 40” (2008). Johnson was also the recipient Pepperdine School of Law Faculty Scholar Award (2002-2005).

Sarah Beth Johnson was not sworn into the New Jersey State Bar Association until 2006, almost ten years after graduating from Brown University in 1998. She began her career as a receptionist at Prada and eventually became the Vice President of Manufacturing for Ralph Lauren’s runway line.

"It wasn’t as glamorous at it sounds,” explained Johnson of her job overseeing the manufacturing of her line, who spend much of her time touring factories in addition to making calls and updating spreadsheets “ I felt bad when I had to ask (usually old) people bent over machines to ‘sew faster’.”

After another job working in fashion, Johnson was ready to leave fashion in 2002. She was offered a full scholarship to Pepperdine University School of Law. She graduated Cum Laude from Pepperdine in 2005.

Now in her sixth year at Fox Rothschild, Johnson spends her time between working on behalf of her clients, interviewing prospective students as the area co-chair for the Brown Alumni Schools Committee, and spending time with her family – two year old Asher and husband, newly elected Freeholder, Colin Bell.
