Mr. Harrison provided me a prompt and extremely thorough explanation consultation that went above and beyond what I was expecting. They listened to my concerns and addressed them in a humane and professional manner despite the sensitivity of my issue. I believe they cared about my well-being beyond potential legal services and so even though I (fortunately) did not need to hire them this time I would recommend them in a heartbeat.

Mr. Harrison represented my 18 year old daughter. I cannot speak highly enough of him and Ms. Carrie Hall who were both exceptional. I knew my daughter was in good hands and trusted decisions and recommendations that were made on her behalf. They were very quick to respond to phone calls and requests. As a mother, I believe they truly cared about my daughter’s outcome and future. I highly recommend Mr. Harrison and his team. My daughter’s outcome was extremely favorable.

I would highly recommend Brett Harrison if you are in need of a lawyer. Recently, I was in need of a defense attorney for some things in my past that I had to reconcile. Mr. Harrison’s office was very professional and addressed all of my concerns promptly and thoroughly. Every step of the way I was fully informed and my voice was heard concerning the outcome of my offense. In my case, I was given 5 years deferred probation and believe this was a best case scenario outcome given my history and the nature of my offenses. I am truly grateful for this man taking time out of his busy schedule to help me. I would recommend anyone needing a criminal defense attorney to consult with this firm.

In this day in age we are guilty until proven innocent. Brett was a beast with the DA in proving my innocence. Carrie is so sweet and helpful, this is an amazing team!!! Thanks again Carrie and Brett!! Highly recommended!!!

I highly recommend Mr. Harrison and his team. I contacted his offices to represent me on my first charge ever, Possession of a Controlled Substance. His wonderful Paralegal, Sarah, walked me through all of what I needed to know and was always available to answer my questions. I was very satisfied with the outcome. I also hired Mr. Harrison and his team on my Probation Revocation, and they were able to get it reinstated as well as my Deferral. Chloe at the front desk is another all-star, and I am thankful for her every day. I have referred Mr. Harrison and his team to quite a few people and will continue to recommend their services.

After a year of getting nowhere with a court appointed attorney, J. Brett Harrison took my case and despite the difficulty of the case, CoVid, and other delays the case was settled in about 4 months. Mr. Harrison and Carrie, his assistant, were very respectful, professional, knowledgeable, and caring. Phone calls were returned promptly. I would use him again if ever needed an attorney and I highly recommend him.

I hired Mr. Harrison for a DWI case. Him and his staff went above and beyond in ensuring I got the best deal they possibly could. They were great to work with and very informative. I appreciated the response time in returning my calls and e-mails. With something scary like this hanging over your head, it’s important to have a lawyer who is honest and transparent and provides timely feedback. Him and his staff were all of these. I highly recommend using him!

We hired Buck Files and his team to help us with a felony

revocation of probation case against my son. Mr. Files and his team were always very courteous, took our many phone calls and emails, and really listened to us. They consulted experts and investigated all the possibilities of my son’s case. They took our questions and

concerns seriously. They went the extra mile to make sure that my son was given a fair hearing. Despite what it appeared to them at first glance, being sent to prison, Mr. Files and his team listened to my son and family, resulting in his release from jail and to remain on probation. Even the judge stated that this was highly unusual. I would highly recommend Mr. Files and his team.

Review for Brett Harrison

Posted by David

May 25, 2020

A warrant for my arrest on felony drug charges was issued in August of 2019 while I was in drug rehab in another state. I was referred to Mr Harrison by family/friends and since I was not available my wife made the initial contact with him. This was my first and only involvement in the criminal justice system so we were both way outside our comfort zones and had no idea what to expect. Mr Harrison and his very capable assistant Carrie Hall quickly put my wife at ease and made sure she was taking care of herself and put together a plan to deal with my predicament. Arrangements were made for the warrant to be executed after my discharge from rehab. Brett emphasized the importance of me and my wife remaining healthy physically, ,mentally and spiritually.

In short, I was very impressed with Mr Harrison’s handling of my case. He made no promises about the outcome, let me know likely outcomes, and kept me informed as my case developed and made sure I understood the process. My case evolved slowly but I trusted Mr Harrison’s counsel to be patient as he felt the course he was pursuing would lead to the best possible outcome, which it did. My wife and I were both pleased with the results and feel very grateful that we were fortunate enough to be represented by Mr Harrison and wish to also acknowledge our appreciation for his assistant Carrie Hall who anticipated our needs and promptly dealt with any issues that needed to be addressed.

Mr. Harrison was great!

We hired Brett Harrison and his paralegal Carrie Hall to represent our foster son for a felony offense that he was arrested for prior to coming into our care. There were many extenuating circumstances surrounding the arrest. Mr. Harrison took time to truly understand and communicate to the DA all mitigating factors. This resulted in the DA declining the case. While our son’s was not a high profile or high revenue generating case for Bain, Files, Jarrett and Harrison PC, we never received anything less than their full attention. We will forever be grateful for the outcome of this case, as it allows our son to continue his path to college and future success.

Mr Harrison is amazing. When he accepted my case, he identified what all he needed to do to get the best outcome for me. Not only did he get me a very fair sentence he got me the help I needed to overcome some serious obstacles such as addiction. I have no idea where I would be today without his advice. He saw the big picture when I couldn’t see it. I highly recommend him.

Buck listened, understood, and cared about who I am and where I was coming from that led me into the Smith County Justice System. I couldn’t have asked for a better team to represent me … or a better outcome. I feel fortunate that I was able to have them working to protect me and will be forever grateful for all their hard work and for the results won by it.

I found myself needing a criminal defense attorney in May 2018 after having felony charges brought against me on a matter which never occurred. I chose Mr. Harrison for that task and I commend his professionalism and concern displayed in my behalf. At one of the lowest points of life, I found a law firm that believed in me and not only got my case dismissed within 34 days of origination but ultimately helped me to achieve a total expunction in April 2019. I would highly recommend J Brett Harrison and his legal assistant Carrie Hall to anyone needing a first rate defense attorney!

Outstanding man of integrity.

Mr. Files assisted me with a probation violation sometime last year. I can’t find the words to explain what an amazing experience it was in detail; I was literally brought to tears by how grateful I was for my experience with Mr. Files and I(i1nberly. His concern for my well-being was coupled by prompt action and a fair price for his representation. Highly recomn1ended. I feel like he is part of our family now, just from a minimal interaction with him … that’s the kind of impression he left with me. Great lawyer.

Brett Harrison and his staff (Carrie Hall) where absolutely amazing. They got me through one of the toughest moments I have every had to go through in my life. They will work hard and thorough till the end, and they will fight hard for your case. I was accused of a felony offense; I was able to walk away with a class C Misdemeanor, because of their strong will. They will also believe in you and give you hope when you feel you don’t have any hope left. I highly recommend their assistant in your case.

DWI Representation

Brett Harrison represented me for a first offense Class A Misdemeanor DWI charge. Both he and his legal assistant, Tammye Mayfield, were very helpful in guiding me through all aspects of the case. I had no prior criminal record, and was not familiar with the Court system, but they assisted in all aspects. They were able to handle my license revocation as well as being able to get the minimum penalties for sentence given my circumstances.
