GRANT M. SCHEINER

TCDLA President
Only one group of people seem anxious to re-open courthouses and start criminal jury trials again, and it isn’t defense lawyers. It isn’t prosecutors either. In conversations with elected District Attorneys from all over the state, I have learned that many prosecutors don’t want to risk their health, the safety of their communities, or having convictions overturned due to constitutional violations. 
 

AMICUS CURIAE

TCDLA's Amicus Curiae Brief Committee provides amicus assistance in state and federal courts in cases that present important issues to criminal defendants, defense lawyers, and the criminal justice system.

declaration Readings

Since 2010, Texas criminal defense lawyers have gathered on courthouse steps across the state early each July to publicly read the Declaration of Independence. The tradition—unlike any other in the nation—is supported by members of the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association.
