Our Practice Areas

  • Employment Litigation

    Joe Byars has been litigating employment related disputes for many years, representing both the employee and the employer in a wide range of employment matters including breach of contract, trade secrets and confidentiality provisions, discrimination claims, and whistleblower protection. These types of cases require attention to detail, and evaluating all of the facts is essential. If a remedy exists under the law, we do all we can to obtain that remedy.

    If you have lost your job, or if you are experiencing difficulties at work, feel free to contact Joe Byars for a consultation. If your business has been sued by a former employee, do not hesitate to call.

  • Divorce & Custody

    There may be no more contentious or difficult area of the law than divorce and family law. The stakes are higher, and emotions can turn even the simplest situations into complicated cases, fraught with risk and adversity.

    At Byars & Hall, we believe the best outcome is the one both parties can agree on, but if court is necessary, then you need an advocate on your side who is not afraid of a fight.

  • Criminal Defense

    It has been said that no area of the law carries more consequence than criminal law. A person’s constitutional rights to freedom, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are all in jeopardy when he or she enters the criminal justice system.

    If you have been arrested, you need a skilled and effective attorney representing you from the very outset of your case. You have rights at every stage of your case – rights that can be waived or lost if you fail to secure legal representation.

    Our firm has over 50 years of combined experience representing defendants in criminal proceedings. We represent clients in both State and Federal court. We handle all types of cases – white-collar crime, drug cases, theft, and DWI are just some examples.

    Don’t wait to get help. If you have been charged with a crime, give us a call today or contact us here to schedule your initial consultation.

    We look forward to fighting for you.
