Texas Parole Attorney

Fighting to Reunite Families Throughout Texas


We built our unique Texas law practice around providing services to prisoners and their families relating to several important aspects of the parole process:

  • PAROLE REVIEW - Texas law establishes rules and guidelines as to when a prisoner is eligible for parole review and what criteria he or she must meet in order to be released. However, it is a discretionary decision, which is why every little detail can matter, and why the advocacy of an experienced and qualified parole attorney is so valuable.

  • WINNING PAROLE RELEASE - Receiving early release on parole is never a guarantee. Many inmates falsely believe that parole is within their easy reach.  However, there are many scenarios where this just isn't true.  Winning parole release often requires not only an effective presentation to the parole panel members, but also a detailed history of the person's life story, before and after the crime(s). Victim input can also play an enormous role, usually in a negative way.

  • TEXAS PRISONS - Understanding the programs and opportunities for self-improvement available to inmates is a crucial first step to eventually being released on parole.

  • REINTEGRATION STRATEGIESThorough and realistic reintegration strategies are not only of interest to the parole board, they are also necessary for inmates who hope to remain free once they receive parole.  

  • TEXAS PROBATION LAWS - Some people are fortunate enough to avoid prison even after conviction by receiving probation. Understanding Texas probation laws and what happens when people have their probation revoked is important to the advocacy process when that same person seeks parole.

  • INFORMATION FOR FAMILIES - Families play a key role in the parole process and provide much needed emotional and financial support for loved ones who have become involved in the Texas criminal justice system. We provide information for families to empower them to fill their support role more effectively, as well as to address their own issues that arise when a loved one is incarcerated.

  • INFORMATION FOR PRISONERS - Inmates in many Texas jails and prisons have limited access to outside information. We provide information and guidance for prisoners to help them start taking control of their futures as early into their sentences as possible.

Guiding Prisoners and their families

Serving as a parole attorney in Texas is different in many important ways from serving as a criminal defense attorney at the courthouse. Criminal defense attorneys tend to practice in a very specific locality, with the focus being on protecting a defendant against the prosecution of criminal law violations prior to a conviction.

Criminal defense lawyers at the courthouse try to help you avoid a conviction or a prison sentence, or if prison ends up being inevitable, they seek to get the shortest possible sentence, either through a trial or a plea agreement. Once prison becomes unavoidable, inmates and their families sometimes place false hope in the possibility of winning an appeal. Unfortunately, appeals almost never succeed. Parole often becomes the only realistic way to get back home, and very few lawyers are focused on the post conviction efforts that will likely help the prisoner get back home as early as possible, where building or re-building one's life can begin.

The Law Office of Kevin Stouwie is intimately familiar with Texas parole laws and all aspects of the parole review process. We support inmates and their families throughout Texas, as they strive toward winning parole release and the pursuit of a successful reintegration back into society. Each client is an important human being, not a TDJC number, and not a person who ought to be defined by the title of the offense for which he or she is incarcerated.

We are a Texas law firm focused on parole issues

At the Law Office of Kevin Stouwie, we provide legal services that help Texas prisoners win early release from incarceration, and we counsel their families to ensure that they receive the needed support to re-enter society and begin building a new life. We look to the future, while learning from the mistakes of the past. The past is almost always an extremely valuable teacher, and the painful lessons of the past must never be forgotten. But the future is where hopes and dreams reside. Quite simply, we believe all people have a lot of good inside, and all of us can do great things, to love and honor ourselves, our families, and our society, if only given the chance to prove it.  Freedom is precious. We can help.

Attorney Kevin Stouwie chooses to focus his law practice on representing Texas prison inmates seeking early release through parole because he believes people can learn from past mistakes and society as a whole benefits when former inmates receive opportunities to build new lives.

Law Office of Kevin Stouwie serves clients throughout Texas, and is based in San Antonio.
