New “Civil Process For Texas” Penned by Hopkins County Native John Steinsiek

For the past ten years, Civil Process Consultant John Steinseik has produced a civil process handbook that is used by judges,  law enforcement agencies, lawyers and citizens alike. Every two years, the handbook is updated to reflect changes in Supreme Court rulings and Texas Legislative laws. The 2017/2018 version, published by Blue360 Media, will be available online starting August 24, 2017 and will reflect the new laws for Texans  as passed by the 2017 Texas Legislature as well as rulings made by the Supreme Court that affect civil law in Texas. It can serve as a reference book because of Steinseik’s diligent research and his lengthy career in instruction for law enforcement agencies and county court officials. He began compiling the volume because there was no single volume available that was a source of reliable information. The 320-page “Civil Process for Texas” is fully-indexed with eleven chapters dealing with codes, citations, subpoenas and notices, writs, tax suits, landlord/tenant relations and much more. It will be available for $37 per copy online at

Retired Chief Deputy Steinsiek is a Sulphur Springs High School graduate Class of 1960, and earned a degree in Criminal Justice. In 1963, newly married and employed as a reserve office for Hopkins County Sheriff Paul Ray “Popeye” Jones, he was cautioned of the trials that a law enforcement career could place on a marriage. He went ahead and followed his law enforcement career, eventually transitioning into instruction, consultation and now writing.  Together he and his wife Susan Withrow Steinseik have been happily married for five decades, have two daughters and three grandchildren. They also own a family farm in the Sulphur Springs area which they visit for relaxation. His new handbook features a photograph of the Hopkins County Courthouse as a nod to his roots here.
