Attorney Profile

Barrett Thomas is a Founding Partner of Blanchard & Thomas, PLLC and the current Managing Attorney for the Waco and Abilene locations. He is a former First Assistant District Attorney and Chief of Police. He honed his skills as an investigator and litigator over 14 years in law enforcement. Through that experience, he developed a knack for finding the truth – even when it has been intentionally concealed. He now uses his investigative prowess to benefit his family and criminal clients, and to ensure his clients have the advantage whether in settlement negotiations or the courtroom.

Mr. Thomas has been named a Rising Texas Star by SuperLawyers magazine and was voted one of the "Best of Waco" for family law in for the last three years.  He was voted the Outstanding Young Lawyer of the Year by the Abilene Young Lawyers Association in 2014. He has received both the Graduate of the Last Decade (G.O.L.D.) award and the Bob Black Bar Leaders award from Texas Tech University School of Law. He has been named an Outstanding Young Alumnus by Hardin-Simmons University in 2019. Finally, he is the former President of the Texas Young Lawyers Association, a former member of the State Bar of Texas Board of Directors and Executive Committee, and former President of the Abilene Young Lawyers Association for two terms. Mr. Thomas is currently serving on the District 8 Grievance Committee of the State Bar of Texas, teaches at several regional police academies and law enforcement agencies, and volunteers with multiple charitable organizations including Greater Waco Legal Services and the Children's Advocacy Center.

Mr. Thomas enjoys watching Dallas Cowboy and Texas Tech Red Raider football, time outdoors, and drinking beer of all kinds. He loves to travel, and he has even been known to go on "adventures" with his sons and close friends which includes taking trips with no plans for a destination or lodging. He takes pride in being a fifth generation Wacoan and the fact his children are the sixth generation members of Austin Avenue Methodist Church. Mr. Thomas is most satisfied with his role outside the courtroom as a husband to his wife of over twelve years and father to their four children.
