As Texas appellate lawyers know, there are two highest courts in Texas — the Texas Supreme Court and the Court of Criminal Appeals. Their courtrooms are located across the hall from each other; the court chambers are on different floors in the same building. But litigants in the two worlds rarely cross.

If criminal cases are on your plate, then you should definitely check it out.
