About Me

Former Prosecutor.  Experienced Trial Lawyer. My passion is helping others understand the law and their options in situations that are often overwhelming.  I spent over five years as a prosecutor prior to entering private practice.  I feel my experience as a prosecutor gives me the ability to advise my clients fully in all situations.  

Raised in a small, West Texas town, I was taught to love others as myself.  When we founded Barnett, Howard & Williams, we did so on the idea of creating a faith-based law firm that offers professional representation with the personal attention your case deserves.

  • Derek Lee Montgomery

    Jason is a great attorney, and I highly recommend him. His experience as a former prosecutor, knowledge of the law, and passion for doing things the right way allow him to serve his clients in ways that few other criminal defense attorneys can.

  • Keith Dewayne Harris

    I first met Jason when I was a prosecutor. I was always impressed with how he carried himself. He really walks the walk. Jason always knew how to pick his battles. As I've gotten to know him over the last few years, I really have seen how much he cares for his the courtroom, and in life.
