State Counsel for Offenders
Attorneys in this section represent indigent offenders indicted for felonies allegedly committed while incarcerated in the TDCJ.
Trial attorneys represent offenders at all court appearances, file all necessary motions and pretrial writs, and fully litigate all relevant issues on behalf of the offender. Trial attorneys, utilizing the services of professional defense investigators, obtain discovery in offenders’ cases and meet with them to investigate their cases. Work includes discovering and questioning potential witnesses and preparing cases for trial, if necessary.
