What Legal Resources Does TJCTC Provide?
Our resources are funded through generous grants from the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals and the Texas Department of Transportation.
Meet the TJCTC Legal Department
Our legal department is made up of four attorneys who are passionate about justice courts. They teach at the seminars across the state, develop legal resources, and answer legal questions. We are always interested in finding out what justice courts need, so if you see a resource missing, please contact us at 512-347-9927.

Can I get in touch with a staff attorney?
Who can contact a staff attorney?
As an additional resource, our staff attorneys answer legal questions for justices of the peace, court personnel, constables, deputy constables, and constable clerks. The Training Center Legal Department does not provide legal advice or assistance to the general public.
How can I reach an attorney by phone?
The on-duty attorney will take phone calls when they are in the office between the hours of 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. and 1:30 - 3:00 p.m. Please keep in mind that we have a significant travel schedule and will often not be in the office.
Tips for asking questions via phone:
- Call 512-347-9927 and Press 1 for Legal Questions
- If it goes to voicemail, the on-call attorney is either away from his or her desk or on the other line. Please leave a detailed message, your phone number, and your extension.
- We hold over 25 events a year so keep in mind that this service is only available when we are in the office. Thank you!
How can I send the attorneys a written question?
You can post questions on our legal board and our legal staff will answer them within five business days.
