I have a legal question that isn’t answered in TJCTC’s Deskbooks.
TJCTC’s staff attorneys answer questions on civil process through our legal board and via phone.
To post a question on the TJCTC legal board, click here.
To speak with a staff attorney, call 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!
The public is asking for resources on evictions/civil/tenant remedies.

I need a form.
