State Counsel for Offenders
How TDCJ Offenders Can Get Help
Offenders wanting help with a legal problem should first see their unit law librarian for assistance and read the Legal Handbook, published by SCFO. If they determine their problem cannot be solved at the unit law library level, they should send an I-60 by truck mail to the State Counsel for Offenders Section that would help with the legal problem, i.e. Trial, Immigration, General Legal, Civil Commitment, or Appellate. Mail may take longer to be processed if not properly addressed.
Offenders must contact State Counsel for Offenders directly - the request for help cannot come from friends or family members.
The offender's NAME and TDCJ ID # must be printed on the request or we cannot help!
An offender who has been served with legal papers should immediately send the legal papers with his/her request.
