The Best Defense Team
After a car accident on a wet road, a young family member was charged with criminally negligent homicide, which is a state jail felony. We were devastated by the accident and then devasted by the news that our family member could face jail time and have a felony conviction. We immediately reached out to Buck and his team for guidance. Buck, Brett, and Carrie worked tirelessly to review documents, research information, and work to get the best resolution for our family member. Due to their relentless efforts and dedication to the situation, they were able to get the charges reduced. Our family member will not be a young adult with a felony conviction for a vehicle accident. We are so thankful for Buck, Brett, and Carrie.

There’s no one better for Smith County defense!
The former DA has treated me with courtesy and respect while being my biggest advocate.

Highly Recommended
He is honest, straight forward and has very extensive knowledge of the law. He consulted me about my case and I knew then I needed to hire him. Due to his professionalism he basically saved my freedom and it is very much appreciated.

Great Attorney
We hired Buck Files and his team to help us with a felony revocation of probation case against my son. Mr. Files and his team were always very courteous, took our many phone calls and emails, and really listened to us. They consulted experts and investigated all the possibilities of my son's case. They took our questions and concerns seriously. They went the extra mile to make sure that my son was given a fair hearing. Despite what it appeared to them at first glance, being sent to prison, Mr. Files and his team listened to my son and family, resulting in his release from jail and to remain on probation. Even the judge stated that this was highly unusual. I would highly recommend Mr. Files and his team.

Best Lawyer in East Texas!
Buck Files gave me a chance, and by doing so he gave me my life back. He got my case dismissed and then expunged. I can now live a normal life! I highly recommend this lawyer and his team.

Absolute best in Smith County
Buck listened, understood, and cared about who I am and where I was coming from that led me into the Smith County Justice System. I couldn’t have asked for a better team to represent me... or a better outcome. I feel fortunate that I was able to have them working to protect me and will be forever grateful for all their hard work and for the results won by it.

5 Stars!
Mr Files, Mr Harrison, and Carrie Hall are a dream team! I found myself in the worst imaginable situation in 2013. They were with me every step of the way. I got a very fair sentence. They have continued to help me to this day. I'm so thankful to have had them on my side. I will no hesitate to recommend them to someone in need.

Outstanding man of integrity.
Mr. Files assisted me with a probation violation sometime last year. I can't find the words to explain what an amazing experience it was in detail; I was literally brought to tears by how grateful I was for my experience with Mr. Files and Kimberly. His concern for my well-being was coupled by prompt action and a fair price for his representation. Highly recommended. I feel like he is part of our family now, just from a minimal interaction with him... that's the kind of impression he left with me. Great lawyer.

Mrs.
We hired Mr. Files and Harrison a couple of years ago. From the start him and his team did everything in their power to make me feel at ease! I ended up having my case dismissed because of their tireless efforts. The best asset they have is their paralegal, Kimberly. Anytime I had a question she emailed me back within a couple hours and when I stressed (which was often) about the case she reassured me they were working hard on my case. They sat with me when I had to see the judge and they made sure I had a low bail. Until the very end they were confident and made this experience a pleasure. Professional, hardworking, and inexpensive. Highly recommended.

Professional All the Way
Buck Files took us in his office and listened to each member of our family. He was compassionate, honest, and encouraging. He did not hide the truth of the situation, but was very knowledgeable about the legal situation we were experiencing. It is comforting to know someone who is well-trained and wise about the situation is on your team.

As fine a Attorney as ther is.
My charge was aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Mr. Files met with me and over the course of two years the case was dismissed. During those two years he and his staff were in constant contact, Very professional and genuinely cared for me. I have no negative comments about Mr. Files. I will say his staff is extraordinary. He and his staff through years of experience and relationships with the DA and prosecutors give him an “upper hand” vs others counselors. I never questioned his approach but I am very pleased with the outcome.

Excellent lawyer and firm.
I hired Mr. Files and his partner, Mr. Harrison, to represent me in a criminal law matter, and I could not have been more pleased with their professionalism, knowledge, and commitment to my case. My experience with their firm, including the paralegals and other staff, was superb. I highly recommend Messrs. Files and Harrison.

DWI Representation by Buck Files
Mr. Files believed "the criminal justice system was not meant for my situation" and gathered sufficient background information to support that belief. He worked to get my case accepted by the Smith County District Attorney's Office for the Pre-Trial Intervention Program. Their agreement was then approved by Judge Ellis. Mr. Files and his staff were always very respectful and caring in their attitudes toward me. This is a firm with heart.

Real lifesaver
My husband found himself in a situation of some horrendous accusations being made. Knowing they were false we started looking for a criminal defense attorney to begin our case to fight them. After speaking to a couple other attorneys, we went to see Buck. The moment we walked in, we felt an immediate difference. Before he even discussed the case he spent time to get to know us as people. After hearing our story he made one phone call and confirmed for free what other attorneys were wanting over 5k to do. We hired him on the spot. Kimberly was great, they got right to work, calling us the next day to say case was actually inactive/closed & were wanting to refund our retainer. Mr Files stated he made 2 calls that took less than 5 minutes & we should go celebrate!

Buck Files Is Probably Best Attorney in East Texas
Thoroughly explained all charges in a clear and concise manner. Quickly identified options and gave me the necessary information to make a decision on the best course of action. Once, we agreed on an approach, he quickly resolved the issue to my satisfaction while answering my questions and keeping me informed. I would highly recommend Buck and his team

Unbelievable Results!!!
Mr. FIles represented me today in court on a felony probation status hearing, my results were amazing. I could not have asked for a better outcome. Mr. FIles and Kimberly went above and beyond for me. I was very impressed with how compassionate and supportive they are, and how they made me feel like my case was of top priority. He is well respected in the Courts, and when you see him in the Courtroom you can see why, he is a straightforward, genuine, and ethical.
