Criminal Defense Attorney: Defending the Rights of the Accused and the Incarcerated

    In Texas the Board of Pardons and Paroles will decide whether or not a Texas offender will be released on parole.  For the majority of offenders the deicision is made by the three voters at the regional parole office.  While there used to be something called “mandatory supervision,” which dictated that when a person had a certain amount of credit their release was mandatory there are extremely few inmates who still fall under that law.  The rule is now “discretionary mandatory supervision” and for offenders who are eligible the Parole Board will consider releasing them on that date in addition to their normal parole review dates.

    It is our belief at Topek and Topek as experienced Texas parole attorneys that offenders going through the Texas parole process can benefit from having an advocate dedicated to presenting the Texas Parole Board with all the reasons that exist in support of their parole.  The Board of Pardons and Paroles reviews thousands of cases every month and unless they receive additional information their decision will be based solely on what they are provided by the State of Texas.  We work had to make sure they are given a more complete picture of our client and any other additional information that they may not otherwise receive that will help them make their decision.  Please call or fill out an online contact form for a free consultation with an experienced Texas parole attorney.
