About Me

Mr. Barnett is a founding partner in the law firm of Barnett, Howard, and Williams, PLLC. Prior to starting the law firm, he served for six years as an active-duty U.S. Marine judge advocate. As a Marine, he served as a criminal trial lawyer, handling a broad range of cases involving assault,drug offenses, fraud, larceny, possession of child pornography, sexual assault, rape, and more. Mr. Barnett faithfully served his country and was deployed to Iraq where he served with the Third Marine Aircraft Wing as the Deputy Staff Judge Advocate.  As Deputy SJA, he supervised all legal assistance on board Al Asad Air Base and traveled the country to assist the Multi-National Force-Iraq with detention operations and other matters involving the law of armed conflict. After he returned from Iraq, Mr. Barnett served at Headquarters Marine Corps – Judge Advocate Division in the Pentagon. There he handled officer misconduct and promotions and helped develop training programs designed to improve the trial skills of Marine judge advocates. Mr. Barnett is now exclusively focused on representing individuals in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex and military servicemembers in criminal cases.
