Texas Jail Project doesn’t recommend a particular lawyer on this list, and we cannot know if any of them 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 do. Also, be aware that most attorneys will represent clients in any part of the state.
