I had a bad day in TN one morning. I had never been in trouble in my life or ever been detained for anything. Needless to say, I was terrified. My career was in jeopardy; my record was doomed; and I was generally hopeless. I met Johnny the next day and he dropped what he was doing to consult me and review my charges. I knew after the first phone call that I had contacted the man for the job. Sitting with him during the consultation I immediately felt a sense of relief and ease. The two months between consultation and my court date were filled with sleepless nights and a feeling of disgust with myself. Johnny worked hard and navigated this situation with ferocious work ethic and strategy. The outcome was total dismissal! Johnny Houston felt like he was not only a professional partner in my life, but also a friend. His down to Earth approach couldn't have been more comforting in such a time of great stress and uncertainty. In the court room you could tell that he had the respect of everyone present. The other attorney's, law enforcement, and the court staff all treated him with high regard. I had always had a not-so-great opinion of attorney's and a wary opinion of the field. Not so here. Should you ever find yourself in a life situation where you need the best. There is only one option. Johnny Houston and his entire staff. Never consider another. If I could give him 50 stars, I would. Thanks, Johnny!

After getting a DUI I became overwhelmed with fear. DUIs lead to long term problems with future planning. Houston and Alexander both have outstanding demeanors and took away all my anxiety. There is no substitute for having a great pair of attorneys working on your case. Since I am not from the Chattanooga area, traveling for court sessions is a hassle. However, they rescheduled my date for after I got out of school in December and settled my case the very first day. I am so impressed by their service and out come of my charges. Anyone serious about their, and their family's, future should put money concern aside and hire these men.

Johnny and Bret did an outstanding job for my son in getting has DUI case resolved. We are not from the Chattanooga area so finding an attorney to handle his case was difficult. We are very blessed to have found Houston and Alexander. They have the experience and relationships within the court system to be able to find a workable solution for all parties involved. I would highly recommend them.
