Parole

Parole

If you have a loved one who is currently serving a prison sentence in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ)  – Institutional Division, do not hesitate to contact my office for a FREE CONSULTATION regarding the inmate’s eligibility to be considered for parole.

The granting of parole is a privilege, not a right.  There is not an attorney in this state that can guarantee an inmate’s early release from prison.  Even an inmate who is innocent of the charges that put him or her in prison cannot expect a successful appeal that will lead to prison release.   The decision to grant an inmate’s request for parole rests solely on the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole.  Among the many things the parole board takes into consideration before ruling on a parole application is the severity of the offense committed that incarcerated the inmate, the amount of time already served by the inmate, and the progress the inmate has made while incarcerated (educational programs, counseling and participation in  services offered by TDCJ).

If hired, I will provide an inmate’s family with a step-by-step plan that could increase the chances of parole.  I will also assist the inmate and/or the inmate’s family in preparing a parole packet that could be presented to the parole panel.  This packet will provide the panel with significant insight on the self improvement initiatives the inmate took  while incarcerated and a post release plan detailing how the inmate will strive to reintegrate into society.

I have also represented paroled inmate’s facing parole violations and revocation proceedings.  These proceedings are initiated when the State alleges that the parolee has violated the terms and conditions of parole.  These inmates need an attorney who understands the parole revocation laws and will zealously advocate for that inmate to avoid further incarceration.
