Johannah Kramer started her law journey representing private and public clients in land use and environmental litigation. She is extremely proficient in law and motion practice under the California Code of Civil Procedure, as well as with the California Environmental Quality Act’s specialized procedure requirements. Always wielding an optimistic disposition, she is a strategic litigator that revels in administrative and legal challenges. Johannah provides a sharp review of complex documents, declarations and impact reports, with a keen eye for detail in all aspects of her cases.

Johannah was an investigative reporter for the UC Davis California Aggie Newspaper and is a scientist at heart, even dreaming to be a dentist as a kid. After doing some soul-searching, she found that law would give her an opportunity to merge analytical and social skills. Her electives were largely focused on bioethics, intellectual property, and environmental law & land use.

Outside of work, she’s an avid backpacker, ceramic specialist in cone 10 functional wares, and a glorified tennis-ball dispenser for her rescue pup Boogie. She’s also a disc jockey at KDVS 90.3FM in Davis, California!
