What is required for an attorney to receive calls from an offender?

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) has specific requirements for attorney registration that are different from normal Friends and Family. Specifically, attorneys must send specific information on their letterhead; details are in the FAQs and a sample format of the letter is also available for download.

Please note that calls are limited to 30 minutes; the time starts when anyone at the office accepts the call, regardless if it is the attorney to whom the offender wishes to speak, or someone else within the office.

Attorney-client calls will not be monitored or recorded.

Please see the FAQs for additional information.

Cell Phone Registration

If a cell phone registration is received, the attorney will need to send in a copy of their phone bill along with the attorney registration letter.
