Welcome to the website of TELA, the Texas Employment Lawyers Association
TELA was founded in 1992 as the voluntary bar association of Texas attorneys who represent people rather than companies. The organization was created to protect and expand the legal rights and opportunities of all Texas workers as well as to build and strengthen the community of lawyers who represent them.
TELA promotes legislative protection of worker rights throughout the state and supports judicial enforcement of those rights through advocacy and litigation.
Members of TELA represent working people as independent lawyers. If you are looking for a lawyer, click here.
