CLEAT lawyers are a world apart from the lawyers in the phone book or the lawyers from the late night television commercials. CLEAT attorneys specialize in working only for Texas law enforcement personnel. There are former police officers, a retired judge, former law professors, former district attorneys and a former TCLEOSE commissioner who are standing by 24/7 to look after our member’s best interest. Whether you’ve been involved in a shooting, a critical incident involving a custodial death or just facing a disciplinary hearing, you will find no greater advocate than a CLEAT attorney.
CLEAT was the first and only law enforcement organization in Texas to hire attorneys full time to work exclusively for our members. When our members need help, we don’t want them to go to the back of the line waiting for an attorney to bail out a crack dealer or finish up a divorce case. We know you need us now or you wouldn’t have called. Our attorneys personally go to the site of shootings, when they occur and represent our members when they need us—not the next day or whenever they can get around to it.
Our attorneys are highly educated, trained and experienced in every aspect of the law. From representing officers in arbitrations, court proceedings, all the way to the Supreme Court or just designing a free will for your family—nobody does more for Texas officers than CLEAT.
The founders of CLEAT wanted lawyers working just for Texas officers and that has been the extraordinary model of success for more than 35 years.
