Value of Attorney Representation

An attorney is not required to be reviewed for parole or to argue for a prisoner’s release when the prisoner is parole eligible. And no attorney or representative can guarantee any approval vote by the independent individual Parole Board Members that make the decisions in parole matters. But I do believe a clear, fact based presentation of an argument consistent with the Parole Guidelines is worthwhile. I have been specialized in this field for the last eight years. I travel all over the State of Texas and see all of my clients in person. I go to all of the prison units in the TDCJ system and I do presentations to all of the parole board offices around the state. The Texas parole system is complex and ever changing. I believe it requires specialization and experience to properly evaluate cases, know voting trends and priorities of the Board, and effectively argue for a client's parole.

The biggest problem I see in the state parole review process is paperwork overload. In each prisoner's parole file there is the support information, protest information, court and probation information and unit parole information. This is a lot of information to review for each vote. In each file there is a parole summary created by the IPO office that is sent to the Parole Board Member who votes the file. I believe all eighteen commissioners in the State of Texas are dedicated and sincere in their efforts to review each case as thoroughly as possible. The problem is the task they are faced with each week. I believe it is too difficult to look at all of the information in each prisoner's file when making a vote. I think it is a full time job to just review the IPO summaries and cast votes in this way. To ask or expect the Board to review all of the information in every file in my opinion is unrealistic. The paperwork in this process is simply too much work under this current system.

Because of this paperwork overload in my opinion, the key to parole presentations are direct discussions with Board members when they are reviewing and voting cases. I feel all of the Board members are generous with their time and very open minded towards family and attorney arguments. I think my experience in this field and my regular contact with the Board members around the state is my best asset to my clients. My office is small enough to address individual concerns and to allow me to individually visit each client and to personally make each presentation. But I do a high enough volume to keep fees low and to maintain a great deal of contact with the Board around the state.
