About Christy Jack

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. Nationwide, there are few who have her level of experience handling death penalty cases. 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 rose to the rank of Deputy Chief — becoming one of only five attorneys on the 325-member staff with that supervisory title and role. She serves as chair of the Governing Board of Texas Civil Commitment Office, a gubernatorial appointment. She is also the immediate past 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. She is frequently quoted in the news media and was recently featured on 48 Hours about an infamous Texas murder. Learn more about Christy Jack.
