The Bellmead Municipal Court does not appoint attorneys, nor can the Court refer you to a specific attorney. You have the right to hire an attorney to represent you in court. You may refer to the Texas State Bar Association website to assist in locating an attorney. Your attorney must file a written letter of representation with the court. If you are a juvenile (under the age of 17) and have an attorney representing you in Court, you and your legal parent/guardian must still appear. In certain cases, your attorney may be required to file a surety bond with the court.
Please be aware that a parent of a person age 17 or older may not represent their child in court and that a power of attorney does not allow a person to represent another in court. Only an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Texas can represent a person in court.
