My case was dismissed, period. I was a nervous wreck and he took time for several consultations to help put me at ease. He was very up front and honest. Also his rates are very reasonable. I WOULD recommend this attorney.

My fiancée and I retained the services of Mr. Carlson at the recommendation of another attorney to handle a difficult case whose origins were several years ago and the facts of the issue sometimes difficult to piece together. Not only was Mr. Carlson able to do, he was able to articulate and present the case to the prosecutor in such a way, that it was understandable, articulate and supported our side/opinion fully.
The end result was a complete dismissal of all charges. There is simply no way that this would have occurred without Chris's effort, knowledge and personal relationships across all levels of the Harris County judicial system.
It is with no reservations at all that I place my highest professional and personal recommendation behind Mr. Carlson and his work. He managed to take a potentially life changing situation that we saw limited options for and craft an outcome that was beyond what we had hoped for. In a challenging situation, Chris is a tireless advocate for his clients who knows the law, procedures and most importantly people that are needed to secure a successful outcome. We couldn't be happier with his services and feel that his fee structure was more than reasonable for the work he performed and the care and attention he showed this case.

I met with Mr. Carlson for a consultation and by the end of this consultation I was confident I was in good hands. He is a walking law book. Very knowledgeable in his area of practice. I work offshore and I commonly have to up and leave to a rig for an unannounced amount of time. This was no issue with Mr. Carlson. He has taken care of me like family as to where other lawyers have treated me like a pay check.. This is the only lawyer I will hire.

Chris is an ace Chef in a 5 star workplace (Courthouse). He knows how to put ingredients (of the Texas Penal Codes) together to form incredible outcomes for defendants. He has razor sharp knowledge of practicing law from experience against DA's. I've seen this guy dominate all other lawyers & DA's in the room with his sit-back-quiet demeanor.. reading and studying the case & doing action steps to get to the best outcome. He has friends that are DA's... because he is kind and can get his way more than other defense lawyers. You can not go wrong with this guy. He has background associates that help him prepare things if he needs to be in court. He is way under priced. He is hands-down the best. I would never use a different lawyer for criminal cases.. and had previously went through over 7 since 2002. He got me 3 big dismissals where the odds where stacked sky high. I love you Chris..

OMG- Chris, I love you!! There is no other lawyer on the planet as Great as you... YOU HAVE HEART, AND ARE THE SMARTEST MAN I KNOW OF. I'VE USED 5 LAWYERS BEFORE. CHRIS IS EVEN RESPECTED IN THE COURT ROOM BY OTHER DA'S. HE USES LOTS OF RESOURCES IN HIS PRACTICE OF LAW. I TRUST HIM WITH MY LIFE 100%. HE'S NOT ONLY THE BEST IN COURT ROOMS 1-8, BUT AN ACE UP IN THE HIGH COURTROOMS OF 100-300, AS WELL. HE GETS THE BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOME. I'VE SEEN HIM CHARM DA'S WITH KEEN TALENT. HE IS RAZOR SHARP WHEN IT COMES TO KNOWING ANGLES OF LAW, TOO. I'VE EVEN SEEN HIM FIGHT UNDER THE BELT FOR ME ON OCCASION (BUT, I WON'T SAY HOW). ANOTHER TIME, I CALLED HIM WHILE SEARCH WARRANT COPS WHERE KNOCKING AT MY DOOR. THE COPS WERE PICKING ME UP ON A 2ND CHARGE WHILE I WAS ALREADY OUT ON BOND (THAT MEANS YOU HAVE TO STAY INDEFINATELY IN JAIL UNTIL YOUR NEXT 2-WEEK COURT APPEARANCE). I SAT IN JAIL FOR ONLY 4 DAYS WHEN THE JAILER ANNOUNCED MY RELEASE. I THOUGHT CHRIS WAS GOD WHEN I WAS IMPOSSIBLY WALKING OUT. HE DID SOMETHING WITH THE GRAND JURY UP THERE ON THAT 4TH DAY, SUCCESSFULLY. HE HAD GOTTEN ME OFF OF TWO 2-10 YEAR 2ND DEGREE FELONIES, WHERE THE STATE HAD OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE. MONTHS LATER, HE GOT ME OFF OF A STATE JAIL FELONY AT THE FIRST SETTING (BUT LITTLE STATE EVIDENCE WAS PRESENT). HE CARES ABOUT ONE'S FREEDOM.

I cannot possibly be more satisfied with the work that Christopher and John did on my case. I already had a conviction on my record, and was facing a possible 180 days in jail.
Initially, the prosecutor did not budge, offering a plea of about 60 days in jail. After a few settings, Christopher made it clear that if I was not offered a fair plea bargain, he would have no problem battling it out in trial. The prosecutor ended up agreeing to time served!
I've hired an attorney in the past which tried avoiding a trial at all costs, pressuring me into taking a plea that I was not happy with. I think the difference between him and lawyers like John and Chris is that they are not afraid of trial, like so many defense attorneys seem to be.
If you are contemplating which lawyer to hire, I strongly recommend going with these guys!

I used Mr. Carlson in a criminal case a few years back. All I can say is he is a man of his word. He told me exactly what I needed to do from turning myself in, to posting a PR Bond, to having my case dis-missed. I TRUST him beyond words can express. He definitely is one sharp guy who knows his stuff! A TRUE EXPERT. He made me feel relief w/his extensive knowledge and confidence. He is a FIGHTER, and will fight for You! He goes above and beyond the call of duty... which is rare in the law field!

a year ago i was being accused by someone else of sexual assault, which was not true, i gave my statement to the police of what really happened that night, after that i was scared of being charged for something i did not do,so i talked to about 5 lawyers but i did not feel i could trust any of those 5 lawyers, then my sister told me about john t floyd lawfirm and christopher carlson, after my first visit i knew he was going to go to the max to win this case, chris made me feel secure about my case once i left his office. 30 days laters after that i was cleared and never even got charged. i would recommend chris carlson and the john t floyd lawfirm to any body .

My son was faslely accused of a serious situation that he should not have been involved in from the beginning. It carried a rather lengthy sentence. However, Chris saw through the allegations from the onset and began working to have the charge dismissed before trail. He was successful in having the case "no billed" by the Grand Jury in just two months and my son has a new chance to get his life back on a new track again. Trust me you can't go wrong consulting Chris Carlson and the John T. Floyd Law firm.
