A good parole lawyer can be the difference between getting parole or being denied. The parole panel will start reviewing your husband's case 60 days before he's eligible. That means that you need to hire a parole lawyer at least 6 months before he's up from parole. It takes time to force TDCJ to send all of his records and put together letters of support. Also, if he needs an independent exam by a doctor or psychologist, it takes even longer. The costs depends on the type of case, his history, and the experience of the lawyer. But hiring a cheap parole lawyer is not worth the money.

I've said this before - call Mary Samaan in Houston. She is not overpriced and she is an excellent lawyer. I've been at this for 23 years & I think she is shortly behind me.
