Made the impossible happen
Baron Eliason was by far the best attorney we have ever come across and hired. My case was early probation release and after consulting with over 20 attorneys who all said it would be impossible for this to be achieved regardless of me following all probation rules, they said I was up against the most strict and uncompromising judge in this specific county and that early termination would not be granted. Not only did Baron take my case on, he was very transparent and explained all that would be involved. Kerri Cockerham, who is one of the paralegals and worked closely on my file/case with Baron, she was absolutely amazing to work with. She is extremely professional and on top of every detail and deadline involved, and always kept us up-to-date by following up with us and letting us know the progress of the file/case. She was Baron’s right hand and together they are a dynamite team. It was initially Karrie who we spoke to, when we were looking for yet another attorney. Her professionalism and Dedication not only impressed us but her true passion for what she does and how she helps others is a testimony on its own. I would want to hire this firm over and over again if and when required and would do so without hesitation. Again they got me the outcome that I required when every other attorney stated that they could not help me. One of the other things that really impressed me about this firm and Baron as an attorney was that he never shied away from giving us a phone call himself talking to us giving us his time without charging us for additional time. I would want again they got me the outcome that I required when every other attorney stated that they cannot help me. I don’t know what I would’ve done without you guys you’ve given me a new chapter in life. I will forever be grateful. Thank you.

HANDS DOWN BEST ATTORNEY IN TEXAS
Baron is the man!!! He got me early termination of probation in front of the most strictest judge in the state of Texas. The best part was I didn’t even have to show up. Baron and Kerri were always upfront and honest and always kept me posted. If you go with Baron trust me you won’t regret it.

DWI
There are attorneys that claim they will help you and all they want is your money, but Baron Eliason is someone that can be trusted. He's a Christian and he follows through about what he says he's going to do and treats you with respect and like family. He helped me get a great deal and it was better than having a DWI on my record God bless you Baron. Daniel

Early release of probation
I was very satisfied with Baron and Kerri. Kerri was well informed and smart. She was also helpful and kind. Baron got me off of probation early without even having to go to court!!! I would recommend her and Baron!

Great lawyer
Baron and the whole staff were amazing. They walked me through every step and kept me up to date with all matters even though I was an out of state client. Had excellent report and relationships with local officials and was very professional throughout my process to reach a much hoped for conclusion in my situation. Would definitely recommend

Excellent Attorney
Baron worked with me on my case for over two years. During that time he helped me understand the legal processes that were going on, communicated between me and the DA, helped me negotiate multiple problems and ultimately helped me reach the best possible outcome to my case. I enjoyed working with Baron because he is a competent attorney and a genuinely friendly person who not only handled my legal situation but took the time to get to know me personally. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking legal council and if I needed to I would be happy to work with him again.

Great Guy
Baron was given my case with short notice and in spite of the time crunch, he dug deep and found some loop holes. My first plea offer on a felony was 7 yrs TDC, we ended up signing 2 years misdemeanor probation. I reccomend Hamilton and Grant.

Baron Eliason Review
I have been working with Baron for several months now regarding my charges for possession of marijuana. The charge was initially dropped down to a ticket for paraphernalia, but I just was not comfortable taking that plea. Baron was able to get me a dismissal as long as I jumped through some very reasonable hoops, which were able to be taken care of quickly. Baron, along with his paralegal, Tracie, were extremely pleasant to work with. If Baron happened to be in court or busy, Tracie was always there to assist me and did so kindly and professionally. I felt like they truly cared about me as a person not just as a client.

Shoplifting case dismissed
I contacted the law office of Hamilton, Hull&Bryd as regards a shop looting allegation I had sometime in February. I was assigned Baron Eliason as my attorney. He carried me along at every step and always assured me he will do his best. Even when he was given the option of terms of dismissal for the case, he still wasn't satisfied until he had the case dismissed. The staff in the office were always cheerful all the way and always ready to help. I've never worked with people who are very empathetic and non judgemental. I'm happy I decided to choose them as my attorney and will recommend them over and over again to anyone that needs their legal services. I wished I could give them 10billion stars cos 5 stars isn't doing justice to how good they are. Another good thing is they are far from being pricey and they work with whatever your budget is. God bless you Baron and your other team mates. You are the real MVP.

Criminal defense Attorney | Jul 03
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Baron is the most compassionate, well rounded attorney that I have ever worked with. Baron works hard on clients cases and keeps the pressure on the prosecutor's office to get the best results possible."
Criminal defense Attorney | Feb 11
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I have had the absolute pleasure of working with Baron when I was as a prosecutor at the Lubbock County District Attorney's office. Baron is a dedicated advocate for his clients, and truly cares about each individual. He has an immense knowledge and understanding of the law, particularly DWI/DUI. I have also had the privilege of watching Baron in the courtroom and can attest to his brilliant skills as an orator as well as his uncanny ability to tell his client's story. Any client would be lucky to have Baron fighting for them."
Criminal defense Attorney | Feb 04
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Baron Eliason is a sharp legal mind, empathetic counselor, and talented orator. He is a fantastic attorney."
DUI and DWI Attorney | Jan 21
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have known Baron for over 10 years. I first met him when he became my senior pastor at WPC in Lubbock. He was a licensed attorney as well as a pastor. I always thought it would be amazing to practice law with him and when the time was right he came to work with us. I have tried cases with Baron and I have seen first hand his abilities. He can cross examine witnesses with the best trial lawyer I know. His true calling is his ability to connect with the client. He feels true empathy for people and he is able to communicate that to a judge, a prosecutor or a jury. I highly endorse Baron as both a lawyer and a great person."
