  1. Criminal defense
    70%
    Being charged with a criminal offense can be a difficult experience. I understand this and will fight for your innocence and to save your criminal record. I routinely represent clients charged with both misdemeanors and felonies. In all cases, I analyze every piece of evidence to determine how it can best be used in your favor. While representing you I will take time to answer all of your questions. I offer free evaluations of your case and my fees are always up front and reasonable.

  2. DUI and DWI
    30%
    I take a very solution oriented approach in representing people who have been charged with DWI. Every piece of evidence in your case is carefully analyzed to determine how it can best be used in your favor. I always take time to answer all of your questions and encourage clients to call the firm with any additional questions they may think of during the scope of our representation. I offer free evaluations of your case. Also, my fees are always up front and reasonable.

I consider myself a criminal defense trial attorney. Whether it is trying a misdemeanor Driving While Intoxicated case to a much more serious felony assault charge, I truly love going to bat for people. My practice consists of representing individuals charged with the full spectrum of criminal offenses. The thing that separates my law practice from most others is that I pride myself on personal service. When dealing with me, phone calls get returned promptly and questions are answered timely. Frequently people tell me that they have never met a lawyer who was so approachable or gave them honest answers about their case until they met me. I invite you to come in for a free consultation. If nothing else, I can promise you will know more about your case than you did when you came in and it won't cost you a dime.

UT student
I had never been involved with the criminal justice system before (except for a small weed situation a couple years ago). I was so scared for my future after this, but Eric really helped. He made the situation way less scary, kept me informed, and really did everything to fix it. I am so so grateful. He also worked with me on price and payment which helped so much since I'm a student w low income. He was knowledgable and confident and on my side, and that made me feel so much better. Thank you so much eric!

The BEST LAWYER IN AUSTIN!!!
Mr. Harron is the BEST. ATTORNEY. EVER!! I spoke to dozens of lawyers, and Mr. Harron is by far the most knowledge, sincere, and helpful. I’m so happy I hired Mr. Harron to represent me. He settled my case in a fraction of the time other lawyers claimed it would take. He was incredibly reliable, he kept me in the loop, and he was sympathetic to my situation. He knew legislation better than other attorneys, and it shows in the results. I highly encourage you to give him a phone call. Thank you, Mr. Harron for all your help. You truly turned my life around.

Excellent Attorney!
We consulted with and hired Eric Harron to represent my relative in a DWI case. Eric told us he likes to get cases dismissed before they get to court. That’s exactly what he did! We were informed by Eric that the case was dismissed. Eric Harron is an excellent Attorney and I recommend his services to anyone with a criminal case!

Dedicated and Determined
If you are looking for hard working “bulldog”I HIGHLY recommend Eric Harron. My son had several charges of which another attorney could not negotiate and recommended him to take a conviction for. We fired that attorney and hired Mr. Harron. He got the job done in Williamson and in Travis county!! He communicates with prosecutors, he knows the law and stays up to date on the law. He is super smart, yet super tough!

excellent
Eric was a Godsend when my daughter was facing a slew of legal problems. She was fortunate enough to have had a referral from a coworker who was completely satisfied with services he received. Having been placed on DWI probation on two prior cases in two different counties, she was arrested again for a third DWI, which was now a felony, and which could carry prison time. State's recommendations on revocations not too good, but Eric fought zealously on her behalf and was able to get a great deal on both, and have the felony DWI reduced to a misdemeanor. I truly believe his success in obtaining these results was nothing more than a reflection of the immense amount of experience and knowledge he possess in criminal law acquired during his career as a defense attorney. As a mother, I have much admiration for him since not living in Austin I had no one to place my faith in, but in him, to do the best he could for my daughter. I have nothing but the upmost respect for him and truly appreciate his professionalism and genuine concern in handling these matters. He and his staff were very attentive. Never once were my calls gone unanswered or my questions unanswered. We were always kept abreast of the direction the cases were going immediately after anything of important transpired. I hope my daughter never needs his legal services again, but should she, he will be the first to call.

Case Dismissed!
I'm here to tell you right now, stop looking for an attorney. Mr. Eric Harron is the only attorney you will ever need. Mr. Harron was the easiest attorney I have ever worked with. He keeps you informed of your case in a timely manner. Not once did I have to call his office for updates. The information came to me and I was never in the dark. He didn't steer me wrong or give me false hope in my case. Payment was not an issue, he was very understanding clients need payment plans to pay off their balance. Incredibly easy to deal with on all levels, easy to talk to, easy to reach, always available. The man is a true professional and comes highly recommended. I felt as if he was actually fighting for me, not just taking payments like other attorneys. He truly cared about my case and worked diligently to get me the best deal possible. I can honestly say the end result (a dismissal) was better than the best case scenario. Again, Eric is the best. Use him now, you will not be disappointed.

Great criminal lawyer
Mr. Harron got me the best results possible.... a dismissal! He is a knowledgeable and personable attorney that got the job done. He is comfortable and confident in the court room and his experience showed. My charges were in Williamson county with a notoriously strict judge but this didn't intimidate him at all. He was straight forward and upfront with me throughout and got to the facts. He is passionate about what he does and will fight for your rights. I highly recommend Eric Harron to anyone facing legal troubles.

Clear, Honest, and Knowledgeable Defense Attorney
I chose Mr. Harron to represent me in my criminal defense case in Williamson County. I am extremely happy with this decision. He kept me informed, demonstrated his knowledge of the law, and succeeded in having the charges brought against me dismissed in a court notoriously difficult for defense attorneys. I had been charged with a Class B Misdemeanor for possession of marijuana. However, when I was arrested my rights had been violated when my vehicle was searched without my consent and without probable cause. Mr. Harron inspected the State's evidence against me in order to construct a strong case. I believe his success stems from his ability to communicate clearly and effectively. He demonstrates a compassion for citizens' rights as well as superb attention to detail. These things show that he has the stamina and courage to stand up for your rights. He kept me well-informed throughout the process and he treated me with respect and honesty. I never felt like I was alone in this case nor did I feel as though I was being filled with false promises. Honestly, I felt confident in my case from the moment we first spoke on the phone. What's more is that in the courtroom, I felt like I had the best defense lawyer in attendance. Eric never presented to me anything but the honest truth and what he could do to help me get the best result possible. Hiring a lawyer can be an arduous, even strenuous, process, but it doesn't have to be if you find an attorney you can be confident in. I am overjoyed with the result and everything he did for me and for working out a payment plan with me. He went above and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend his services and would eagerly hire him again.

Excellent - Auto accident lawyer
I am very grateful for all the assistance/help from Mr. Harron. As a lawyer, he is very professional and personal. I felt very comfortable with Mr. Harron and he and I communicated very well to understand my expectations. He explained the process/procedure to me where I could understand it. I appreciated his advice when I needed it. I would recommend Mr. Harron to family and friends if asked.

Eric Harron Criminal Defense Experience
Eric helped me with a criminal case this past year. It was important that the case was resolved quickly so that I could accept a job offer. Eric was able to get my a great deal on my case that would not hinder my future career prospects. He also went out of his way to help me with other legal matters without charging anything extra, such as working to get me an occupational license to drive to work and college. He was very informative and willing to help with any questions or concerns I had at any time. He will also help put you in contact with others and will be honest if he knows of someone who can serve you better for your specific needs. I highly recommend that you hire Eric.

Eric Harron=Excellent
I recently ran into some legal trouble and Eric Harron was my court appointed lawyer. Anytime i would call his office i would get immediate assistance and was sent to his direct phone line; even when he wasn't in office I would leave a voice mail and he would respond almost immediately. I went to court a few times and finally got a deal that i was happy with. I would highly recommend Eric Harron as an attorney and will call him if future legal problems arise.

Straight to the Point
Eric Harron is very good at what he does. He was able to get me a great deal in my case which dropped my DWI charge to a lesser offense with the opportunity for probation to wipe the charge clean. The thing I liked best about Eric was that he did not sugar coat anything. He told me exactly what I was facing and what the possible outcomes were. I definitely recommend Eric for whatever your case may be.

All about the money!
With all the good reviews I am more offended that this guy did nothing for me and was such a money hungry monster.Hired for a simple criminal case and he did absolutely nothing for me.. He put fourth no effort and did not care about the outcome of my case..JUST wanted my money!

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"When you hire a criminal attorney, you need a good negotiator, someone who can assess your case and give you a realistic picture of what the likely outcomes are. You need a lawyer who can convince the prosecutors to do the right thing. But at the end of the day, negotiations may only get you so far. You need a lawyer who can make your case to a jury. Eric is an excellent trial lawyer who gets great results for his clients. He's not afraid to try tough cases that lesser lawyers would shy away from. I highly recommend him."
