Lawyers Who Have Represented Families in Lawsuits Against County Jails

Texas Jail Project cannot recommend particular lawyers, and there’s no way for us to know if any of the ones will take your case. All we can tell you is that these ARE attorneys who had success suing a county jail, which is not easy to accomplish. Also, be aware that most attorneys will represent clients in any part of the state.
