About Me

Attorney Becket Jones grew up in Lansing, Michigan. He graduated from Michigan State University in 2004 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration Pre-Law while studying under the Evans Scholarship, a four-year, full tuition scholarship. From there he went to obtain his Juris Doctorate from Thomas M.Cooley Law School in 2009.


While living in Lansing, Michigan, Becket was a Law Clerk at several firms, including Anderson, Stull & Associates, PLLC and The Gallagher Law Firm, PLC. Through his clerking experiences he gained a practical grasp and view of the law, an increased respect for the difficulties everyone encounters in their lives, and a defined understanding of the role a lawyer can play in easing the difficulties others face.


Becket began as a Law Clerk with Hills at Law, P.C. in September of 2010, and was hired as an Associate Attorney of the firm when he was admitted to practice law in the State of Michigan in 2011. Becket’s practice is limited to Criminal Defense and its tangential areas, which include Driver’s License Restoration, Motions to Set Aside Convictions (Expungements), Petitions for
Discontinuation of Sex Offender Registration, Criminal Forfeiture, Restitution and Personal Protection Order matters. He has focused his efforts and skills on these areas exclusively since joining Hills at Law, P.C.


Becket is a member in good standing with the State Bar of Michigan, and the Federal Bar Association for the Western District of Michigan. He is an active member of the Kalamazoo County Trial Lawyers Association, acting as a Secretary from 2011-2013, began as the Co-Chairperson of the Young Lawyers Section of the Kalamazoo County Bar Association in 2012, and was appointed to a seat on the Board of Directors for the Kalamazoo County Bar Association in 2013. During the school year, Becket also gives his time and efforts to the Kalamazoo Central High School Mock Trial Team as one of its Attorney-Coaches.


Becket’s experience as an attorney in the criminal justice system has touched upon everything from city / state misdemeanor traffic tickets to federal death penalty eligible murder cases. Becket currently handles his own client caseload primarily out of counties in Southwest Michigan, and aids the other Hills at Law, P.C. attorneys with their extensive criminal defense trial work and preparation.
