Blizzard & Zimmerman are criminal appeal lawyers. Unlike criminal defense lawyers who dabble in criminal appeals on an as needed basis, Blizzard & Zimmerman regularly research and prepare appellate briefs. Unlike hiring a criminal defense trial attorney, a quality criminal appeals attorney spends time researching the intricacies of the law, appellate procedure, and harm analysis on appeal.  Clients who have been convicted of a criminal offense face an uphill battle attempting to overturn the conviction. It takes knowledge and experience like that of Blizzard & Zimmerman to prepare briefs that convince an appellate court to change to overturn these convictions. Clients who face this battle can have confidence in the skills and abilities of Mr. Blizzard and Mr. Zimmerman. 

Mr. Blizzard is Board Certified in Criminal Law, the kind of lawyer with the experience and dedication to criminal defense and appeals that anyone facing a criminal conviction needs.
