Current Adjunct Municipal Judge, Former Collin County Assistant District Attorney, Former Police Department Advisor, and Former Municipal Prosecutor for Richardson, Allen, The Colony, and Balch Springs.
Welcome. I hope that you find my site informative and helpful. My goal is to provide you with the highest quality legal services in a timely fashion. I treat each case as though I were the individual being sued or charged with a crime, and I place high value on doing everything necessary to establish a good defense. I treat my clients the way I would want to be treated if I found myself wrongly accused. Right now you may be experiencing emotions such as uncertainty, fear, panic, anger, and helplessness at the situation. You probably understand that there are hundreds of attorneys out there, but ask: "Who will represent me the best in my particular situation?" "How much is this going to cost?" "What are my options to make this experience just go away?" "Will I lose my job now that I am accused of something I believe I didn't do?" "How will this affect my family?"
This is a difficult, stressful time for you, and the last thing you need is to spend a tremendous amount of money on the wrong attorney who won?t personalize or devote time and needed attention to your defense.
At the same time, you need to feel that you are in good hands. You don?t want to have to worry about whether your attorney is zealously defending you. Going to a "big name" attorney will probably make you feel more confident, yet zap your funds completely. Unfortunately, as many people find out the hard way, the "big name" often means that you get lost in the shuffle of hundreds of competing cases. Personal attention and care are virtually nonexistent. For professional, caring, quality representation at a price you can afford, please contact The Law Office of Jennifer Barnett, P.C.
Make sure you understand what you are getting into when you hire an attorney, and demand performance out of your attorney. This is especially important if your case is one that requires the extensive use of expert witnesses, such as physicians, psychiatrists, or forensic scientists. Many attorneys manage their finances so poorly that they have no money left to hire crucial experts to defend your case. This can mean the difference for you between life in prison or an acquittal. The State will have experts in murder and sexual assault cases, and your attorney must be prepared to manage his fees in such a way that you get the benefit of a battle of the experts.
I believe that every case is important and requires individual attention. Aggressive representation is paramount to acquiring an acquittal in a criminal case or favorable settlement in a family law situation. The criminal justice system is not designed to care about what is best for you and your family. This entity is pulled in all directions, stretched by competing interests, politics, funding issues, and personal motivations. The "system" is molded to prosecute crime. It is shaped so that the State has the overwhelming advantage. The only way to fight back is by hiring someone who can navigate through the confusion, assess the evidence that exists, and prepare a cogent, plausible defense specific and individual to you. I welcome the opportunity to talk with you to determine how I can help.
