Judicial history teaches that broad issues and accepted definitions suffice and that a workable jury system demands strict adherence to simplicity in jury charges.


—Judge Jack Pope, in Lemos v. Montez


Written by a committee of 25 members of the bench and bar, this book is intended to assist in preparing the court’s charge in jury cases.  It provides definitions, instructions, and questions needed to submit jury charges in family law, probate, guardianship, trust, and involuntary commitment cases. All charge language is included as Word files linked to the comments, and Texas and federal case and statutory citations are linked to the Fastcase online database. The 2022 edition provides case law and statutory updates throughout.

Litigators will find PJC—Family & Probate to be indispensable to their practice.
