Christy Jack is a nationally recognized trial attorney who has handled thousands of criminal cases during her 25-year legal career — first as a prosecutor and now as a highly sought-after criminal defense attorney.
She has tried more than 200 cases before a jury, ranging from sexual assault to capital murder. Prior to becoming a partner at the Fort Worth defense firm of Varghese Summersett, Christy served as a prosecutor for more than two decades in the Tarrant County District Attorney's Office. She was highly regarded by three administrations and rose to the rank of Deputy Chief — becoming one of only five attorneys on the 325-member staff with that supervisory title and role.
Recognized by former Governor Rick Perry for her experience in sexual assault cases, Christy was appointed in 2011 to head the Governing Board of Texas Civil Commitment Office, which is responsible for overseeing the state's most violent sex offenders. Governor Gregg Abbott reappointed her to this position, which was confirmed by the Texas Senate in spring 2017.
Christy also recently completed her term as Chair of the Criminal Justice Section of the State Bar of Texas, which is made up of more than 3100 criminal practitioners across the state of Texas. Christy was recently awarded the Daniel H. Benson Public Service Award from Texas Tech Law Alumni Association.
