In Texas the majority of parole cases are voted at a regional parole office.  Every case is assigned to one of the six parole offices.  Once there a case is assigned to a lead voter.  In Texas there is no formal hearing where all three members of the parole panel are present to discuss and rule on a case.  Each of the voters casts their vote on their own although they can discuss cases amongst themselves.  Additionally, the lead voter does not have to grant a member of an offender’s support system request to meet in order to discuss the case.

    It is our practice to always request an interview with the lead voter when they receive our client’s case.  In our experience the majority of board members and commissioners will grant an interview.  When possible we prefer to make an in person presentation to the lead voter with one or more witnesses. 

    If you have questions about the parole process, meeting with a parole voter or the services we can provide please call us on our toll free number 888-661-5030 or fill out a contact form and an experienced Texas parole lawyer will contact you shortly.  We represent offenders across the state and often their families are located in Houston, Dallas, Austin, Fort Worth, McAllen, San Antonio and numerous other cities and towns in Texas.
