In 2017, she was named a Great Woman of Texas by the Fort Worth Business Press and a Best Lawyer by D Magazine.
Prior to becoming a criminal defense attorney, Christy Jack was a prosecutor at the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office for more than two decades, working her way through the ranks to become a chief prosecutor.
