Perfectly executed
Ms Johnson did everything I asked her to do and kept my ego in check. She tenaciously fought for me and did not allow me to be my worst enemy. Her and I disagreed, but in the end she explained and I understood why she did the things she did and it worked perfectly. I hope I never need an attorney ever again, but if you’re in the Jacksonville NC area and need some civil service or litigation, I feel like she’s the fighter you want standing in your corner. I’d give her ten stars if I could.

Awesome!
Attorney Johnson is extremely knowledgeable and I really am satisfied with my decision to hire her. I was pleased with how her law firm responded to my situation and knew that this law firm was going to be one I would hire if need be. When working with attorney Johnson, I found that she was very patient and proudly won our case. I believe that any of this low star reviews she gets is from people that are extremely entitled and disagree with all of them. My experience was wonderful!

Satisfied Customer
Great service by The Houser Law Firm. I was very satisfied with the outcome of my son's traffic situation. The price in which I paid The Houser Law Firm was well worth it. The attention to detail, customer service, and communication was phenomenal. If I have any other legal concerns, The Houser Law Firm will be my family's first choice.

Speeding ticket
I contacted the Houser law firm (NC Legal) after I received a speeding ticket. They were quick to respond and have all the documents I needed to fill out sent straight to me. They informed I would not need to show up to the court session and they would take care of everything. I now have no points taken off my license and my insurance isn’t going up. Ultimately saving money in the long run. Have some patience let them do their job and you will be in your way. Highly recommend for a quick and smooth process

Speeding ticket reduced. No points on my license or Insurance !!!
Amanda handled my speeding case. I live in another NC county not Onslow. The Law firm she works with is Houser. Very Professional firm with lowest cost in Jacksonville. They kept in touch with me from beginning to end. Easy online and phone communication. She appeared before the court for me. My speeding ticket was reduced to a non moving violation. Amanda saved me from stress, driving 100 miles and being possibly convicted if I had appeared on my own behalf. Houser Law firm and Amanda settled my case for not much more than I would have had to pay the court system and the gasoline to get there. Also Saved me hundreds of dollars by not having to pay my Insurance Company for a speeding ticket. Speeding ticket reduced. No points on my license or Insurance points !!! Very grateful. Thank You

Phenomenal Attorney
At first I though I wouldn't have much trouble with my divorce, and I consulted with Mrs. Johnson to get the process started. However, it quickly turned south and Mrs. Johnson ended up representing me in court over false clams filed by my wife. I have never seen someone so dedicated and passionate in the court room. Mrs. Johnson really stood out amongst the other lawyers in the room. So much so that I was asked by others who I hired so they could hire her as well! Mrs. Johnson ended up getting the fraudulent protective order made by my wife denied, and I didn't even need to testify. I could not have picked a better Lawyer. Mrs. Johnson is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and compassionate about her work, and you will not regret hiring her.

Easy, painless representation from afar.
Got a speeding ticket while out of town and after getting "a few" solicitations for legal representation in the Jacksonville area, I settled on Houser law firm for a couple reasons. One was a recommendation from a local and the other was that when I went to contact Houser, everything was very simply explained online and handled in a prompt manner without me having to do anything additional. Very pleased with the ease of use and the outcome. Highly recommend.
