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.
