Actions taken to engage in the political process are heavily regulated and closely scrutinized. With many highly specific rules, experienced counsel is an integral part of every political organization’s team.
Feldman & Feldman’s attorneys are equipped to advise and defend politically active citizens and organizations. Additionally, we can aid organizations in complying with the laws regarding political activity. Notably, one of our founding partners, Cris Feldman, has been providing these services throughout his successful legal career.
How Feldman & Feldman Can Help
The public law attorneys at Feldman & Feldman are available to advise corporations, non-profit organizations, candidates, and public officials with regard to issues surrounding the conduct of elections, including ballot security, election recounts and contests, recall efforts, voter registration matters, candidate qualifications, and the nominating process, among other issues. Additionally, Feldman & Feldman also has extensive experience handling election related litigation.
Our attorneys are available to advise counsel on the rules regarding conflicts of interest and the decision making processes. The Texas Public Information Act gives citizens the right to access government records. The Texas Open Meeting Act requires meetings of governmental bodies to be open to the public, except for expressly authorized closed sessions. Complying with these and other regulations can be very difficult. An experienced attorney can help entities comply to avoid litigation.
Hands On Experience
One of our founding partners, Cris Feldman, completed a postgraduate fellowship focusing on special interest money and corruption in the Texas political system at the University of Texas. Following this fellowship, Cris decoded and successfully proved how former Speaker of the House Tom Delay used illegal money. The Houston Chronicle would later call Cris a “crusading, young, clean-government lawyer.”
Since his initial work uncovering corruption in the Texas political system, Cris has spent over ten years resolving public law issues. He leads a dedicated legal team of experienced attorneys providing top notch legal services.
