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.
Who are the CLEAT Attorneys?
Our staff attorneys are:
Former police officers
Several former Assistant District Attorneys
Former Assistant Attorney General
Former public safety union president
Former private practice litigators
These men and women 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.
Why CLEAT Attorneys?
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 40 years.
