If you have a friend or loved one in a Texas prison, there may be a way to help. Generally, there are only two avenues of legal help for an inmate once his appeal has been completed. One is an application for writ of habeas corpus. The other is parole.
Read more below about parole in Texas and how an attorney can improve your chances of early parole. While it is not possible to obtain parole in every case, the Volberding Law Firm's success rate averages 60% to 64%. This means that we win parole 60% to 64% of the time on the first or second review and lose about 36% to 40% of our cases. If we lose, we do not give up. The Board will set off the client's parole, typically for one year, and we will try again. Unless the crime is heinous, eventually the client will be paroled.
If you would like more information, please read about the costs of hiring us and contact attorney James W. Volberding at our Tyler, Texas law office. Usually the best way to proceed is for the family to meet Mr. Volberding at his office and talk about the client's situation. We do not charge for the first meeting with client families who do not hire us.
