Texas Courts for Texas Veterans

Texas Veterans Treatment Courts require regular court appearances, as well as mandatory attendance at treatment sessions, and frequent random testing for drug and alcohol use. For many veterans, without this structure, they will reoffend and remain in the criminal justice system.

This video highlights the importance of serving this special underserved community, our Texas Veterans. Through testimonials from participants, judges, including Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice Hecht, and prosecutors, the video shares the life changing impacts this program has on veterans. Together, TYLA, Baylor Law School, Access to Justice Commission, and Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans are serving those that served us first.
