5.0 stars 29 totalReview Johnny Houston
Posted by Joe
After a DUI arrest last July, I didn't shop around for a lawyer, I just got lucky that my first stop was Johnny Houston. Johnny was able to get my DUI charge reduced to reckless driving, which considering the circumstances was an awesome outcome. It took almost a year to get it resolved, and after numerous court dates I was getting discouraged. I thought perhaps I should have just saved the expense of a lawyer, and without representation pleaded guilty if I could have gotten the minimum sentence. What a huge mistake that would have been ! They saved my drivers license and I don't need SR22 insurance or an ignition interlock device. Those items have a monetary and inconvenience measure, however I personally cannot put a price on no jail time, and no DUI conviction...
Prior to posting this, I read some reviews of Johnny and agree with the comments on his knowledge, tenacity, and ability to maneuver within the system to work for the best outcome. If you are reading this and find yourself in a similar situation, go talk to Johnny or Bret. I recommend them without hesitation.

I was facing serous DUI charges with new laws on the books which allow a 20 year look-back period if a prior was found within the first 10 year look back period. Johnny Houston assured me he resolve the DUI matter without damaging my reputation, and would not allow any other false charge filed by police to result in convection. After going to court, Johnny destroyed the district attorney's case in under 60 seconds with superior knowledge of the law. Johnny cited laws unknown to most attorney's and the district attorney. The judge dismissed all charges. As I left the court room, I noticed the district attorney was still stuttering after suffering such an embarrassing defeat! WOW.....

I highly recommend Johnny Houston to anyone in need of an AMAZING lawyer!!! He was very knowledgeable, easy to contact & talk to, and provided me with timely feedback regarding my case. He left no stone unturned and worked very hard to get my case settled. If I ever need an attorney again he will be the man for the job!!!

Mr Houston did a great job with my case. I feel like his personal connections within the judicial system with judges, officers, and district attorneys go a long way with helping your case. Very knowledgeable and professional. Did a great job

I was facing a dui charge from back in September and Mr. Houston was definitely the right guy for the job. He keep me up to date on everything going on with my case and was there to answer any questions I had along the way. We end up with a great result of getting my charges dropped down to reckless driving with no loss of license or interlock put in my car. I attribute this result to the hard work and perseverance from Mr. Houston and his entire staff. If you are ever in a legal situation you will not regret hiring Mr. Houston and his team.

Johnny was an excellent representative for me in my case. Unforeseen circumstances did not allow him to be with me in court but he made sure his associate took care of my needs. We were successful in seeking the best possible outcome in my case. I would recommend his office to anyone seeking justice in a criminal case. Wonderful experience in a not so wonderful time of my life.

MR HOUSTON IS EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND SEEMS TO HAVE A GREAT REPUTATION WITHIN THE COURT SYSTEM. HE DOESN'T MAKE ANY PROMISES BUT MY RECORD IS STILL CLEAN AND THAT MEANS THE WORLD TO ME!
A police officer friend of mine told me about Mr. Houston and I couldn't be more thankful! Mr. Houston was professional and honest throughout the entire process. I called his office, made an appointment, and met with both Johnny Houston and Meredith Ziebold. I told them what had happened and Mr. Houston gave me his thoughts on what my outcome could be. He never rushed me or tried to push me into hiring him. I'm sure he could tell that I was nervous and suggested that I sleep on it. When I called him, to tell him that I would like for him to represent me, he told me that he would take care of everything and would let me know when and where to show up. I now know that I had nothing to worry about because he had everything under control but I was so nervous that I called his office several times with many different questions. He was always kind and reassured me that if there was anything I needed to do he would let me know but that there are times that we just have to wait. It's nice that Johnny Houston and Meredith Ziebold are a team because having two lawyers on my side meant that I always had one of them in the court room. I am so thankful for everything Mr Houston did for me...I could not be happier with the outcome!!!

I was arrested for a DUI and unknowingly did everything possible to compound the problem. Johnny Houston told me everything that I needed to do and we walked out of the courtroom with a reduced sentence of reckless driving. Mr. Houston knows exactly what to say in and outside of the courtroom to get the absolute best result possible for any mistake. I cannot thank him enough for what he did for me!

My adult son in his early 20s was charged with DUI after collision with a phone pole. Tennessee has implied consent laws so when my son declined BAC testing he was immediately taken to jail for processing on DUI charges, facing up to 11 months 29 days of jail time, large fines, skyrocketing car insurance costs, license revocation for 1 year, and DUI on his record for the rest of his life. We spoke with a number of local lawyers and a highly regarded DUI lawyer out of Knoxville. After discussion with Mr. Houston at his office, my son selected Johnny Houston to represent him in court. Mr. Houston made no promises that he could not keep. He was straight forward and honest with my son regarding potential outcomes.
Mr. Houston charged a flat rate (which was excellent for my son who was expected to pay us back for all costs related to the DUI charge). For this flat rate he represented my son in court three times plus a number of postponements when my son did not need to appear. Mr. Houston went head to head in court with the arresting officer, was always respectful but punched holes in the officers recollection of events. The end result was that the case was dismissed; my son kept his license, no fines, no jail time, no DUI on his record.
I can't recommend Johnny Houston enough. If you need the best outcome possible, hire him.
