He challenges anyone to find friendlier people with only one focus in mind and that focus being to help people find the best insurance for the money. He makes one promise and one promise only and it is that each time you call 1st Alliance Insurance, you will find the staff ready and willing to help you in every way possible even if that means referring you to someone else that could meet your needs better. He wants you to take the challenge and call 1st Alliance Insurance today! You'll be glad you did.

Owner/Agent, Paul Johnson was born in Memphis, TN., to Dr. and Mrs. Richard Johnson. As the son of a pastor, Paul and his three siblings moved several times while growing up in MS. With each move he gained more and more knowledge and interest in the people of this great state. It was during these years that Paul realized his need to give back to his community.
As a young adult he moved to Jackson, MS, to attend Hinds Jr. College and Mississippi College, where he met his wife, Holly. He went on to finish his education at Mississippi State University. After they married, Paul and Holly relocated to Corinth, Mississippi where Paul began his career in the insurance industry, while Holly pursued her career in physical therapy. In 2004, Paul was given the opportunity to go back to his roots and open an insurance agency of his own in Olive Branch. Paul, Holly, and their three children now reside in Olive Branch where they are raising their family and continue to serve the Lord and the people of this strong community.

1st alliance insurance owners are a real pleasure to talk to and do business with. Very knowledgeable about auto and home insurance.
I had been looking for a company that would write renters insurance on a mobile home for awhile now. I was referred to Marie Caruth. She worked and got me quotes and I am sold. I will shop my Auto Insurance when it comes time for renewal. If you need insurance call Marie.
I just switched to 1st Alliance, and they were fantastic! The staff is knowledgeable, courteous, friendly and considers my needs and financial limits. I would highly recommend going with 1st Alliance. They consider all the options out there and help you select the best insurance carrier to meet your needs.
I have been with 1st Alliance almost since the beginning. Marie is my agent and has been for 20+ years. She takes care of all of our insurance needs as well as my entire family. Everybody at the agency makes you feel like family. Give them a try!!!
I just returned from signing the paperwork, moving my auto and homeowners insurance to 1st Alliance. Vicki was very helpful in processing the new account and the rates for both auto and home were less than we were paying with our old provider. I recommend 1st Alliance for anyone looking to lower their rates and have great coverage and their office staff is the icing on the cake!
I have been using 1st Alliance for the past 7 years. Life, Car and even Home Insurance has been handled by the staff over the years. If your looking for the best rates, while not sacrificing top notch customer care then look no further. I'm thankful for their patience in answering all of my questions with great care and expertise. So stop reading and give them a call today.
I can't say enough about First Alliance Insurance and the agents that work there. I've used First Alliance for almost 10 years and I've been using Marie Caruth even before she was a First Alliance Insurance Agent. I couldn't ask for anyone better to handle my insurance needs. I have recommended First Aliance Insurance to several of my friends and family. My parents and my brother and his family currently use Marie at First Alliance as well and they are equally pleased with them.
Marie Caruth is a great insurance agent, she sold me on 1st Alliance Insurance. Marie is very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and does what it takes to get the job done in a reasonable amount of time. Marie was able to help me find the best rates available for my insurance needs. I have my car, home, and life insurance with 1st Alliance. Great job Marie and 1st Alliance! Thanks!!!

Great customer service. Always easy to contact someone. The staff greatly assisted with insuring a special recreation vehicle that had difficult VIN # and 1st Alliance was persistent in getting it all resolved and insured. It would have been a long hard drawn out process for anybody else.
The team at 1st Alliance is super friendly! They have always been very helpful the times I've had to call or visit the office. Very good in remembering me as a person, not just a customer; a sign of great customer service. Thank you 1st Alliance for always being there when I need you!

Love it! Anything I need I can call or text my agent.
They are always accessible and helpful when I call. Always get back to me asap.
They now handle all my insurance needs. Our home, cars, medical, etc. I've been unable to beat their prices. Always reasonable. Recently we moved to a rural area in Mississippi. Our home insurance is almost half. I am grateful for their service to me and my wife.
