About Mimi Coffey:

Mimi Coffey was born and raised in far west Ft. Worth, Texas, on the outskirts of Parker County. She is about as far west as you can go before you are actually in Parker County. Her main residence is minutes from Hudson Oaks, and Weatherford (Parker County). She describes Parker County as very Fort Worth but with its own special small-town feel. She recently joked at a Parker County Bar Association luncheon where she was the guest speaker, that she feels very home here, especially with the fact that two out of her 3 husbands lived in Parker County before they met! Mimi loves Parker County. The Coffey Firm handles all types of Parker County criminal cases.

Here are some basic pointers to know about the Parker County Criminal Justice System:

1. Felonies and Misdemeanors are Handled by Different Offices

There are two separate elected attorneys that are responsible for the prosecution of criminal cases. The elected District Attorney handles felonies while the elected County Attorney handles misdemeanors. They are two separate and distinct offices.

2. Elected District Attorney

The elected County Attorney who handles misdemeanors is John Forrest, who was a criminal defense lawyer before getting elected. He does an excellent job: https://youtu.be/G5Evr_9alws. What is most admirable about the County Attorney is that he hires well-seasoned, experienced prosecutors who have a broad perspective on life (most over the age of 45) and criminal defense experience. John knows that good people make mistakes and he does what he can to make sure that mistakes don’t ruin a person’s ability to be a productive citizen.

3. Court Staff

The staff at the court, everyone from the bailiffs, court coordinators, clerks, and probation officers are super friendly and helpful. It is a very pleasant environment to work in with such courteous and positive staff. It is extremely helpful that the courts will work with us on scheduling trials. The courts are very sensitive to the fact that Tarrant County has morning dockets and are very understanding in scheduling afternoon dockets when there are conflicts.

4. Parker County District Attorney’s Office

The District Attorney’s office can be very responsive to creative solutions prior to the filing of a felony case. Compliments to intake attorney Kathleen Catania, in particular.

5. Challenges in Parker County

There can be major delay in the filing of felony cases. This is particularly alarming when it comes to citizens accused who can’t afford to bond out.
