Best Lawyer Ever
A truly awesome lawyer. You can tell he genuinely cares and he feels like family! I will never use anyone else, ever! (Although, I am hoping I never need legal counsel again LOL.)

Jason is the most excellent lawyer!
Jason Horton Law Firm is a really excellent law firm! Jason Horton is the best lawyer ever! He helped me tremendously with a case which I sought his legal counsel. Jason provided excellent guidance, handled the case with such expertise, and provided the best outcome I could hope to receive. His knowledge, experience, and professionalism is outstanding. He is very patient with my many questions, and helped calm my anxieties and questions with the case. His office staff (Teresa) was also very patient and provided prompt responses and follow ups to my daily questions. I’m so happy and grateful for Jason’s legal help. I highly recommend Jason and his law firm for any legal counsel and support needed. Thank you so much!

Case dismissed
I was accused of harassment and other false allegations that threatened my livelihood and clean record. I had never been in legal trouble and was sure of my innocence so my initial thought was to just explain my case to an investigator, provide evidence of zero wrong doing, and move on. Boy was I wrong. The State picked up the case and suddenly I’m in way over my head trying to explain the most unexplainable and outrageous accusations you could imagine. A friend suggested I hire Jason Horton. I never told them or showed them but he and Ms. Teresa helped ease my anxiety to a pretty functional level during this time. Jason was not only able to get the case dismissed but had the foresight to prevent other judgments ( no contact order, protection orders) from being attached to my name as well. Jason struck me as a knowledgeable, down to earth, and straight forward attorney which was everything I needed. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire him again.

Hire Jason Horton
Jason looked over every detail of our case, laid out our options and explained all possible outcomes. Ours was somewhat unusual, but Jason was confident, professional and extremely thorough and we couldn’t be happier with the results. If you need legal representation, hire Jason Horton. He IS the lawyer you need and want representing you.

Professional, Knowledgeable, Ethical and Compassionate
I found myself in the most horrifying situation that I had ever been in, unduly charged with a crime that I did not commit... my entire livelihood stood in the balance. Jason not only took on my case, but was sincere and compassionate about my circumstances. The PA offered a lesser charge, but I refused because I was innocent of them and if I needed to go to trial then I would have. Jason not only went to bat for me, and never once tried to pressure me into taking the lesser charge (as you hear some lawyers do to just be done with a case), but with his steadfast nature, diligence and professionalism, he was able to get my case completely dropped. I am more than grateful to Jason and his assistant, Teresa, for giving me peace of mind and my life back. Not to mention answering ALL of my calls and emails in a timely manner, and I promise there were many of them!! THANK YOU FOR GIVING MY LIFE BACK TO ME!!!!

You need this man if you are charged with a criminal offense
In the most difficult situation of my life, Mr. Horton was amazing. He was a email or phone call away any time I needed. His staff equally so. There were no surprises as we spent two years on my issue, which he resolved in a more than satisfactory ending. The best person I could have hoped for. If you need a criminal defense lawyer, you need Jason Horton.

Five Star Lawyer
Jason Horton is a professional in every aspect of his practice. Jason is honest, knowledgeable and proactive when it came to my matter. His attention to detail, knowledge, and personable demeanor encouraged me to stay positive in unsure times. Jason has always represented me fully and professionally. Jason and Teresa were both very receptive and open to communication throughout the legal process, always addressing my needs and constantly reaffirming that I made the right decision choosing him as my legal council. Jason was able to rectify accusations based on slander involving a fire arm and a crime.

Top Notch Attorney
Jason Horton is a true professional, and he is genuine and caring towards his clients. His knowledge was extensive regarding our legal issues, and he made himself available to us, even when he was out of the office. Jason went above and beyond, making himself and his office a beacon of support for our needs. He took on unusual circumstances during our case and resolved all of them successfully. Thanks Jason for the amazing job you did for us.

From a Mother
I am a Mom of one of Mr. Horton's clients. Mr. Horton is a great defense attorney! His professionalism, even when under tremendous pressure, was impressive. I was most impressed with his ethics. He alway took the high road, even when others did not. He was caring, and supportive to not only my son, but to all of the family throughout my son's case. When I called and asked for a return call, he always returned my call in a timely manner. Mr. Horton's assistant was so welcoming and always courteous when speaking on the phone. My son's case had a very positive outcome. I recommend Mr. Horton with no reservations. Thank you, Mr. Horton for your dedication to justice! With a humble heart, G.L.

Outstanding!!!!!
Mr. Horton is one heck of a defense attorney. He is genuine, honest, and very professional. I could not ask for a better defense attorney. From the moment i met Jason i knew that he cared about me, my future, and the well being of my family. When i called or emailed him he was always prompt to respond back. When opposition came he knew exactly what to do and say, in a very professional manner, to fight back. He is very trustworthy and can take him at his word. I was very amazed with the ethicalal standards he holds himself to. Mr. Horton worked countless hours for almost two years without giving up and successfully resolved the case. I highly recommend him!!!!

Jason is one hell of a lawyer!
I was in a very grave situation. I was on probation from another county and then got charged with DWI (for Rx drugs, not alcohol). The facts did not warrant the charge, but the DA, of course, went along with the state trooper. Jason was upfront with me in saying that this was going to be an uphill climb and that even if we did well on the DWI charge there could still be negative repercussions to my probation. After using the testimony of a psychiatrist, Jason was able to get the district attorney to bring down the charge. He then contacted the other county and was able to get them to stop their plans to send me back to jail for the remainder of my probationary period. Jason gave me my life back. Not only am I not going to jail, I don't have to lie in bed at night staring at the ceiling thinking about how terrible jail is going to be. I am free indeed.

Excellent!
Jason did an excellent job with our son's case. We heard from several people that he was the best attorney in the area. He was very attentive and followed through on everything he said he would do. We would highly recommend Jason to anyone in need of legal counsel in the Texarkana area.
