I am licensed to practice in all Texas state courts, as well as the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. I am currently a member of the State Bar of Texas and the Austin Bar Association. I am also a certified mediatorand I mediate disputes in family and business civil law.
I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a BBA of Business Administration with concentrations in Finance and Management and a BA in Government. While there, I was a member of Sigma Alpha Mu. I am also a life member of the Texas Exes and an annual contributor to the Longhorn Foundation. I also served as District Justice for Texas for Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, International.
While in law school, I received two Dean's Service Awards and was twice recognized in Who's Who Among American Law Students while attending Drake University Law School. During law school, I was very active in the Student Bar Association, I wrote for The Gavel, and I held several leadership positions in several student organizations, including the National Lawyer's Guild, the Latino Law Society, and Phi Alpha Delta, among others.
I am also an avid runner, and when I am not practicing law or spending time with my family, I am a coach for Team In Training (endurance training program and fundraising arm of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society), helping people train to complete a marathon or half marathon. I have been a marathon coach for over 15 years.
I have two children, who are both high school seniors in the 2015-16 school year and will be attending college here in Texas next year.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I endorse this lawyer. I have known Jeff Barnett since his law school days and we have always kept in touch. I have also had the pleasure of working with Jeff Barnett when I needed to form my own law firm. He was not only professional and courteous, he went above and beyond. He also helped me deal with a difficult legal problem when I discovered that another law firm was using my same corporation name. I would highly recommend Jeff Barnet and I refer clients regularly.
Terence Davis Divorce and separation Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I endorse this lawyer. I originally met Jeff when he was an opposing counsel. Following that case I was given an opportunity to use Jeff on a case as a mediator during settlement week. The original case we worked on was highly contentious, and I was reluctant to use him as a mediator. Begrudgingly, I agreed to use Jeff. Jeff did an outstanding job mediating that first case. We decided to use him on other cases as well. Jeff continued to display outstanding mediating skills and has helped us settle countless cases in mediation. Several cases I did not believe would get resolved in mediation. Jeff is an outstanding lawyer and an incredible mediator. We look forward to using his services in the future.
