Noyl Houston developed a strong work ethic on his family’s farm near Trumann, AR. When he began practicing law in 1978, he was elected City Attorney for Trumann in 1979, and he was appointed Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for Poinsett County in 1980. He moved his law practice to Jonesboro in 1985.
Mr. Houston has been active in his church, community and profession throughout his life and career. He obtained professional distinction by winning a case before the United States Supreme Court, the highest court of the land, and he has also had the honor of being appointed to serve as a Special Justice to the Arkansas Supreme Court on three occasions.
From his beginning as a young lawyer and prosecutor, Mr. Houston’s practice has evolved into an extensive civil practice emphasizing major and catastrophic personal injury, including tractor/trailer and product liability litigation, as well as property, domestic, and probate litigation. He also advises and assists clients with wills, trusts, estates, guardianships and other matters.
Mr. Houston finds the greatest satisfaction in obtaining just compensation for people and families when they or loved ones have been wrongfully injured or killed in collisions or by defective products. Illustrative cases include one in which he helped a man in the prime of life obtain just compensation denied by an insurance company when he was tragically injured and disabled, Witt v. Allen & Son, Inc., (Ark. App. 9/2/2009), and another in which he successfully battled the State of Arkansas all they way to the United State Supreme Court to strike down a state law that deprived a state trooper's widow of the benefits she justly deserved. Rose v. Arkansas State Police (479 U.S. 1, 1986).
