HDBD Celebrates its 25th Anniversary with a New Name and a New Look

As it begins its second quarter century in practice, Texas-based civil litigation and trial firm Hartline Dacus Barger Dreyer LLP is excited to announce its new name, Hartline Barger LLP. Along with the name change, the firm has adopted a modern visual identity, including a distinct new logo and refreshed website.

The new brand identity is a direct reflection of the firm’s promise made on its founding 25 years ago: to reject outdated approaches and attitudes, and embrace smarter, simpler, and more efficient solutions. “A long, convoluted name didn’t fit our style,” said firm Managing Partner Larry Grayson. “So we simplified it. It is a natural evolution that mirrors how we practice law.”

As a result of this change:

  • The firm’s website and external communications will reflect our new name and logo. The firm website address is now hartlinebarger.com.
  • Firm email addresses are now FirstinitialLastname@hartlinebarger.com. Messages sent to previous email addresses will redirect ­to the current addresses.

Despite the new name and new look, Hartline Barger will continue its tradition of practicing law with a unique Texas sensibility. The firm’s approach – emphasizing efficiency, collaboration, and results – remains the same.

Hartline Barger: Looking forward to another 25 years.

Hartline Barger LLP is pleased to announce the promotion of Dallas attorneys Clayton Callen and Tyler Stuart to partners in the firm, effective immediately.

“Tyler and Clayton have both exhibited the kind of judgment, work ethic and trial skills we want in our partners,” said managing partner Larry Grayson. “Their promotion to partnership is well-deserved and strengthens our firm.”

Tyler earned his J.D. from The University of Texas School of Law in 2006 and his B.A. from Baylor University in 2003.

Clayton Callen focuses his practice in the areas of civil litigation and political law. He has litigated a wide range of cases in state and federal courts across the country. This includes extensive litigation experience in cases involving complex commercial matters, products liability, constitutional law, election law, and “whistle-blower” claims under the False Claims Act, at both the trial court and appellate court levels. Additionally, Clayton serves as part of the national trial team for a Fortune 500 manufacturing company, implementing strategies for and managing litigation pending nationwide. Clayton has been recognized among Super Lawyers® “Texas Rising Stars” by Thompson Reuters five times since 2012.

Clayton earned his J.D., cum laude, from the University of Missouri, Kansas City and his B.S., magna cum laude, from Southwest Baptist University.

Additionally, the partnership has elected Larry Grayson to serve as Managing Partner of the firm’s four offices.  In addition to being one of the seven founding partners of the firm, Larry served as the firm’s first Managing Partner from 1994 to 2011.

Larry Grayson has represented clients throughout the State of Texas in a variety of cases, including wrongful death suits, insurance coverage and commercial disputes, product liability suits, dram shop litigation, wrongful termination and employment claims, as well as general negligence actions. Along with representing automotive, truck and heavy-duty equipment manufacturers, Larry has obtained successful outcomes for various retailers and suppliers in a wide range of industries. He has also served on defense steering committees in mass tort litigation. In addition to maintaining an active trial practice, Larry serves as the firm managing partner, a position he previously held for almost a decade after founding the firm.
