About Jason

Learn Jason’s areas of practice.

I am Jason Johnson and I am a proud Texan and native Houstonian who is the owner of Jason Johnson Law Firm PLLC. I received my undergraduate degree in business administration at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University in 2005 and my Law degree at Howard University. I was licensed to practice by the State Bar of Texas in 2008. Mr. Johnson is also licensed to practice in the Federal Courts located in the Southern District of Texas.

I focus my law practice in the areas of criminal defense and personal injury law. In my criminal practice I have handled Matters at every punishment range except Capitol cases (a Capitol case is where the defendant faces being put to death by the state if convicted). This means I am experienced in dealing with clients that could get a fine (small matter) or could spent the rest of their natural life incarcerated in prison (very big matter). I have had many cases dismissed for my clients. 

In my personal injury practice I mainly focus on representing people that have been injured in 18 wheeler and motor vehicle accidents. Over the past several years I has obtained successful results for numerous clients by way of settlements with insurance companies or by filing suit against the parties responsible for the accident.

Criminal defense
Criminal history plays a major role in sentencing around the country. I was enhanced from a 3rd degree felony to a first degree. I was facing up to 99 years in prison. The D.A was stuck on 12 and Id been going to court for over 2 years. I was approaching trial. Jason got me a 12-44a! He’s a life savor!

Jason is excellent
I was very impressed with Jason's skill and diligence. He was in constant communication and worked hard until the case was successfully resolved. As an attorney myself, I understand what practicing law requires and Jason is a great attorney.

Attorney Jason Johnson consulted with me and my daughter concerning my son’s felony case. He looked at the case right then and there and told us that he could possibly get the case dismissed. He worked timely and the results was CASE DISMISSED!! I also like how he was so easy to communicate with.

Shoutout to Mr. Johnson.
He was great. Really worked on my case. Kept me in the loop. Worked out deals to ensure I didn’t have to do anything I didn’t want to do. For the best price in Houston. Shoutout to Mr. Johnson.

Very Great Lawyer and Smart!
My case was assault and the cops said I used a deadly weapon against somebody I don’t even have a relationship with. I hired Mr. Johnson as my lawyer and he fought to get my case dropped down all the way to a misdemeanor and I was facing life! He is the man and I will never use another lawyer again!

Great result, excellent attorney
Our adult daughter faced a probation issue for two misdemeanor offenses. Someone she knew suggested Jason and she contacted him. The matter was time sensitive. We met with Jason and he acted immediately contacting the pertinent officials, and he got things in motion. Two outcomes were expected; the court appearance took place within a week. Jason negotiated the matter and it was resolved with even better results than the two outcomes that were expected. The determination had minimal community service, withdrawal of a prior guilty plea, no fine and an end to the probation period - swift and outstanding results. Jason was receptive to all our questions and communicated very well throughout this process. He has the legal knowledge and know-how that you need.

HE IS THE BEST
My case was tough and I called many lawyers that didnt take the time to explain what I was facing. Jason was a breath of fresh air- patient, kind, and understanding. He knew what to do for me and in the end my case was dismissed because of his excellent and hard work. I have been in trouble before and hired other lawyers and none have been as good as Jason.

Great Lawyer!!
Me and my family have hired Jason Johnson twice and on both occasions he followed through. He will always look for the best option and go after until he gets the best offer. He is definitely worth what you pay for and I do recommend him for any legal assistance.

Great Attorney
I was charged with my first criminal charge (Class A Misdemeanor) and was terrified. I had never had to deal with the legal system before; I had no idea who to call or where to turn. I came across Mr. Johnson’s information by chance and decided to give him a call. He assured me that he could handle my case and could get the outcome I was seeking. The evidence was piled against me and the court was determined to throw the book at me but Jason never backed down and never suggested that I accept a sentence that wasn’t in my best interest. Reset after reset, we continued fighting. After months of resets and deliberation, he got the court to crack and give us what we sought to get the whole time; a deal that would help me put my crime in the past and move on without great potential that it will haunt me in the future. Mr. Johnson is an amazing attorney. One who will fight for you till the end. No matter where the end may be.

Great Work.
I hired Jason as my lawyer for my felony case. He is very helpful, patient, and an overall good person. He kept me updated, recommended actions to take, put me in a path to better my self. All this work he put into me, paid off. Jason managed to have my case dismissed. Im glad I chose him. Thank you Jason.

I've been convicted of 8 felonies in different states and I caught one in Texas. He got me an unbelievable deal and I still owe him! He's worth every dime and more!

Great Attorney!
I hired Jason Johnson when I was charged with a Felony in Houston. It was my first felony ever and I didnt know what to do. Mr. Johnson calmed me down and told me to handle it and he did. My case took a long time and after every court date he told me to keep fighting and to not settle until we got what we needed. He ended up getting my case dismissed and now I am not a Felon. I feel like he gave me my life back. Hiring him was the best decision I have ever made

True Professional
Jason was a true professional. His ability to not only negotiate a deal to have my case dismissed, but follow through with the expunction process and eventually clear my record was key in me keeping my job and being able to get a job new job!

Missing in action
I hired Mr. Johnson, gave him $500.00 2 years ago. He contacted me last year saying he would work on case. Number has changed, never heard from him again. Also contact Ms. Love the one who referred me to him and no one will contact me back. It is a shame that you can't get good help these days. by the way, my name is Frances Deary.
