• Torres Law Offices is now Auburn Law Offices at 220 First St. NE.

The firm was first formed in 1951 by Zane B. Johnson, who would later serve as a pro tem judge in South King County. Later joined by Ernest Crane, the firm became Johnson and Crane. Crane would go on to become a state legislator. In 2007 Johnson Torres PPLC, d/b/a Torres Law Offices, was formed with the addition of John Torres, who also would later be appointed a pro tem judge.

Johnson Torres PLLC continued until in 2013 it was decided that changing the name would best fit the overall philosophy of being vested in the Auburn Valley.

Auburn Law Offices PLLC has become the successor firm of Johnson Torres PLLC.
