Very happy
I’m so happy I decided to go with Mr. Barnett. Not once did he try to deceive me on the process of my case. Other lawyers I spoke with made it seem like everything would be done in a month. But Mr. Barnett let me know it would be a process and assured me everything would be fine. I’m very please with the outcome I received. God forbid I’m ever in a situation like this again but if Lady Luck isn’t on my side I would definitely go back to Mr. Barnett. Also he has a killer smile! Haha!

Highly recommend Brandon Barnett!!
We hired Brandon the day before our court date. He was there the next morning and had already handled several issues. I was constantly impressed with his commitment to details and always kept us informed. He was easy to talk to and I would recommend him to anyone. I heard of his firm on KLTY and he and his assistant, Sue, were amazing and a blessing to our family.

Excellent service
Mr. Barnett was a great help on my assault charge. He gave me and my wife all the tools And advise I need for the case. The results were better than I had expected. My assault charge was brought down to a class c misdemeanor.

class act
Brandon is class act. I don't have much experience in hiring defense lawyers so I did my homework (looked at reviews and did different consultations) before hiring one and Brandon made me feel comfortable from the get go. He always returns phone calls and emails very promptly. He is polite and professional and didn't pressure me into hiring him. (Some other lawyers out there turn the pressure on strong and come off as sleazy as well!) The outcome of my situation was very favorable. Weather you are religious or not, Christian or not, Brandon is the kind of person you want representing you. My only reservation is the Private Investigator he uses, Bobby. When it comes to responsiveness Bobby is essentially the polar opposite to Brandon. I understand everyone has different personalities but when I am paying someone to do a job I expect more that what I got from his PI. My advice is, if you need a PI hire one other than Bobby. However, Brandon is top notch.

the proverbial "needle in the haystack"
After consulting with approximately 10 attorney's my wife and I prayed for God to guide us. The next day, my wife heard his advertisement on the radio. We had a second consultation with Brandon. He was very professional, consistent and straight forward. He followed through with everything he committed in a Christian, efficient, professional, and timely manner. His expertise and reputation helped us achieve the outcome we deserved.

Excellent Service
Brandon Barnett was very quick to respond to my needs and provided excellent and efficient service. Very knowledgeable, professional and polite. I highly recommend Brandon Barnett.

Brandon was very helpful and kept me out of long term jail.
Brandon was a big help to me and I would recommend him to anyone. He fought for what I wanted and helped me out a great deal. He first got me a probation deal but I messed that up on two occasion and got me out of both with minimum consequences. If it weren't for him I would be out of a job and probably not going to school anymore. I don't plan on getting in anymore legal trouble but if I do I know who I am calling.

Great Attorney
I was very please with Mr. Barnett's handling of my case. I was faces some very serious consequences which could of have an everlasting effect on myself and my family's lives. He showed true concern for that and did everything in his power to get the best result. He was very honest and explained ever possible outcome to me. I don't think any other attorney would of put as must time and effort into my case as he did. He sincerely wanted what was best for me and my family. I would definitely recommend Mr. Barnett if you find yourself facing criminal charges.

Best Experience
Brandon helped me with a sticky situation. After only three weeks with his representation I had cases dismissed that would have made my future very difficult. He gets back to you almost instantaneously, is very knowledgeable, and very kind. I would recommend him to any of my closest friends and family if needed i will use his service again.

Highly recommend.
Brandon was amazing throughout my entire experience: from the moment I called until after my case was dismissed. He always returned my emails the same day and handled my case quickly and efficiently. My case was dismissed without me ever appearing in court.
Posted by Kirk | November 26, 2014
Thank the Lord for Brandon!
When I found myself being accused of a crime I did not commit, my wife and I prayed about who to call. I heard Brandon's name on KLTY radio and contacted him. From our first appointment, I felt confident that Brandon "had my back" and that we would have a good outcome. His integrity and his expertise make him an excellent attorney who can be trusted to do everything needed to represent his clients. We were blessed with an positive result and we credit Brandon for the wonderful job he did for us.

Excellent Representation, Excellent Results!
When we needed an attorney to help us to fight against a false accusation, being Christians, we sought Christian counsel. Brandon recognized the case for what it was, got busy with investigations and meetings and then saw us through to a positive outcome. He was clear about his fee , which we felt was fair, and he remained available to answer questions throughout the process. It was a privilege to meet him and to know that we could count on him to do his best for us.

Criminal defense Attorney | May 20
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I recently referred Brandon a very sensitive criminal case involving a friend and professional colleague of mine. The case could have seriously damaged my friend's career. Brandon understood what was at stake, quickly developed a strategy and attacked the case like a Marine Infantryman taking a hill. He met with prosecutors, interviewed witnesses and within a matter of weeks he negotiated a favorable resolution that would insure no harm to my friend's career. Brandon is one of the finest criminal defense attorneys I know. He knows the law and procedure inside and out and he has a knack for developing strategies that will produce the best possible results for clients. He is highly respected by prosecutors and law enforcement personnel alike. He has deep compassion and empathy for his clients and he and his team treat clients very, very well. I recommend Brandon in the strongest possible terms to anyone facing criminal charges."
