Attorney Profile

Heather J. Barbieri is the owner of the Barbieri Law Firm, P.C., in Plano, Texas. As a seasoned trial attorney, Ms. Barbieri focuses her practice exclusively on criminal defense. Serving clients throughout the North Dallas metro region and Collin County, including Plano, Richardson, McKinney and Frisco, Ms. Barbieri is passionate about seeking justice for those she serves.

With relentless determination, she fights hard in both state and federal courts to protect the rights and liberties of those charged with all types of felony and misdemeanor offenses. Certified in criminal law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and having more than 15 years of legal experience, Ms. Barbieri can handle even the most complex and challenging cases, and she has a long history of successfully defending her clients against charges ranging from federal fraud crimes and murder to relatively minor traffic violations.

Ms. Barbieri began her legal career in 1998 after obtaining her Juris Doctor from what was then Texas Wesleyan University School of Law (now the Texas A&M University School of Law) and her license to practice from the State Bar of Texas. She is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Northern and Eastern Districts of Texas.

Along with practicing law, Ms. Barbieri supports her legal community by delivering lectures and facilitating courses and seminars on a variety of topics related to criminal law and trial skills. Dedicated to her practice, she is active in a number of professional legal organizations, including the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. Also, she once served as president of the Collin County Criminal Defense Lawyer's Association.

In recognition for her service and professionalism, Ms. Barbieri has received numerous awards and honors. She has a 10 out of 10 rating from Avvo, and the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association named her Trial Lawyer of the Year in 2015.
