 Jeh Johnson Biography

Jeh Johnson is a partner with the law firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison. He was the US secretary of homeland security from 2013 to 2017. Johnson also served as general counsel of the Defense Department from 2009 to 2012, general counsel of the Department of the Air Force from 1998 to 2001, and an assistant US attorney for the Southern District of New York from 1989 to 1991.

He’s a director of Lockheed Martin, a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers, and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Johnson frequently lectures at Harvard, Yale, Oxford, and other universities and is a nonresident Senior Fellow at Harvard Kennedy School.

EXPERIENCE

Secretary Johnson led the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, where he was responsible for counterterrorism; cybersecurity; border, port, aviation and maritime security; enforcement and administration of immigration laws; response to national disasters; detection and prevention of nuclear, chemical and biological threats; and the protection of critical infrastructure and the nation’s leadership. Secretary Johnson is credited with building a more effective, cohesive Department of Homeland Security and with raising morale. He served as the public face of the U.S. government’s homeland security mission, engaging with the press on numerous occasions and testifying before Congress 26 times. Secretary Johnson managed 230,000 employees in 22 different components and agencies, including U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Transportation Security Administration, the Coast Guard, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Citizenship and Immigration Services, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Secret Service.

Between 2009-2012, Secretary Johnson served as General Counsel of the U.S. Department of Defense, where he was a primary legal architect for the military’s counterterrorism missions in the Obama Administration, and was responsible for the prior legal approval for every military operation authorized by the President and the Secretary of Defense. He co-authored the 2010 report that paved the way for the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law by Congress. In his book Duty, former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates called Johnson “the finest lawyer I ever worked with in government – a straightforward, plain-speaking man of great integrity, with common sense to burn and a good sense of humor.”

Between 1998-2001, Secretary Johnson served as General Counsel of the U.S. Air Force. He also served as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York from 1989-1991, trying 12 cases before a jury and arguing 11 appeals in three years.

Over his many years at Paul, Weiss, Secretary Johnson has handled a variety of civil and white collar matters for some of the firm’s most important clients. He is an experienced trial lawyer, and in 2004, he was elected a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers. In 2005, he successfully defended Citigroup against a $900 million arbitration claim — at the time the largest ever filed before the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD). That same year he successfully defended Citigroup against an $86 million claim before the NASD.

Secretary Johnson has received numerous awards and acknowledgments, including three Department of Defense medals for distinguished public service and nine honorary degrees. His November 2012 address at the Oxford Union, “How Will the War Against al Qaeda End?,” received international attention and acclaim.
