Expertise born from experience

Doug Barlow understands that when people hire an attorney, they are often experiencing very stressful situations. These people need someone who cares about them and doesn't simply go through the motions. For that reason, he makes sure each client not only receives high-quality legal services, but also the reassurance they deserve.  Experience counts.  A lawyer who cares about you makes that experience count.

For over 40 years, Barlow Law Firm has been providing expert legal assistance with the legal skills and abilities of Douglas M. Barlow, an experienced criminal lawyer, board certified in both Criminal Law and Criminal Appellate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.  Doug has handled complex cases that have gained international attention as well as the young student who has run afoul of the criminal justice system from youthful poor judgment.  He has earned and enjoys a reputation among peers, colleagues, and judges as a legal scholar, and a skilled trial and appellate lawyer.
