Don’t Delay in Hiring an Attorney

The Board of Pardons & Paroles (BPP) can vote on a case up to two (2) months prior to the month the case is scheduled for review! If you are considering hiring an attorney, don’t wait. It is not unusual for an inmate to be denied parole before their scheduled hearing and before they had a chance to submit letters and other information for the Board to consider when making their decision. If you have a family member or friend whose parole review date is coming up, plan far in advance to avoid this situation.

How can Mrs. Lacayo help you?

  • The attorney will identify documents and material that are important without overwhelming the Board with information;

  • In Texas, inmates are not allowed to appear in person and speak for themselves before the Board that will vote on their case. However, a Texas parole attorney can speak for them;

  • She will guide the inmate on which courses to take to increase their chance for parole;

  • She will guide the family members and friends on how to write an effective letter of support;

  • She will assist the inmate with writing an appropriate letter to the Board to increase the inmate’s chance of parole;

  • She will make sure the parole documents are sent to the correct Board so they will be considered;

  • She will present mitigating facts or evidence on the inmate’s behalf; and

  • She will request an in-person or telephone interview with voting parole board members to argue the inmate’s case in the light most favorable to him or her.

Timeline of Parole

  • The parole eligibility date is not the date the parole board will meet and decide whether parole should be granted.

  • Inmates will go into review six (6) months prior to their parole eligibility date.

  • The lead voter of the Board is responsible for taking the lead in gathering information for the other members assigned to that case. If the lead voter on the client’s case grants a meeting with Mrs. Lacayo, Mrs. Lacayo will make an oral presentation to that Board member based on the packet. In some circumstances, the member will ask questions, make comments, and take notes for the file. These notes will be available, along with the parole packet, to the other Board members who may vote on the case. The attorney will seek to humanize the client in the parole packet and in the oral presentation. Mrs. Lacayo’s goal is to persuade the Board that the client is no longer a threat to public safety and will be a productive and law-abiding citizen upon release.

  • The Board’s vote can occur up to two months prior to the month the case is scheduled for review by the Board.

  • Plan far enough in advance to allow for preparation of information for the Board’s review.
