Who are Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys?

Seek justice. Defend the oppressed.
– Isaiah 1:17 –

When faced with a legal challenge, you may be feeling overwhelmed and vulnerable. In these situations, the attorney you choose is critical.

Here you really work with an entire team, rather than just one attorney. Whether you’re seeking a criminal defense lawyer, a federal criminal defense attorney, a divorce lawyer, a personal injury lawyer, or you’re pursuing a criminal appeal or post conviction writ, you want an experienced attorney who will vigorously defend your rights.

We do this work because we care about people. We believe in fighting for our clients. We believe in compassion. We believe in second chances. And we believe in justice.

We have attorneys and staff with diversified skills that complement each other, and we work as a team.

Led by Jacob Blizzard, one of a few attorneys who has won federal criminal cases out of the Abilene, San Angelo, and Lubbock divisions notoriously “law and order” oriented divisions of the Northern District of Texas.

Of the 100,000 attorneys in Texas, only 806 are Board Certified in Criminal Law – less than 1 percent. And only 87 attorneys are board certified in BOTH criminal law and criminal appellate law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Jacob Blizzard is one of them. Find out what it means to be a board certified criminal law attorney AND criminal appellate law attorney in Texas and why we are proud to have Jacob Blizzard at Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys.

    I feel extremely lucky to have worked with such an amazing law firm. Jacob Blizzard was professional, attentive, knowledgeable , and always available during my almost 5 year legal battle. His staff was always kind and helpful. They truly … More care about each case and will put in hours of work! There are not enough words to describe what a wonderful law firm Blizzard and Zimmerman is. Blizzards attention to detail and education helped build a strong case that lead to an extremely positive outcome for my family and I. I always felt important and taken care of. I would highly recommend and trust Blizzard & Zimmerman with any legal issues!

    I am taking Jacobs course for filing 11.07's. After years of endless research I am finally moving forward and very close to finally being able to file. Not everyone can afford the full cost of having an appellate attorney , this … More course offers a viable solution at a fraction of the cost. You will be able to file your writ with confidence and there is always someone at the office that helps you and answers your questions.

    Thank you Mr. Matt Zimmerman! He is a very knowledgeable attorney who goes above and beyond in his work. He provided detail explanations of certain process and the affect they would have on the parties involved. He made sure we were comfortable … More throughout all conversations and there were never any doubt that he was the perfect attorney. He will always be my first call when I’m in need of legal assistance and I recommend that he should be yours as well. I promise you won’t be disappointed in his work or knowledge of the legal world.


– Caring & Communication Matter

Consistently the largest complaint people have with their attorneys is a lack of communication and updates in their case.

Clients often get a convincing sales pitch upfront that their case will be handled well and with a good result.

Once the attorney is retained; however, the true colors of the attorney emerge as someone who won’t return phone calls, respond to emails, or otherwise appear to take interest in the case or situation.

At Blizzard & Zimmerman, client communication is of the utmost importance.

We strive to keep our clients informed and partner with them in their case to reach the best outcome possible for their situation.

To us, it’s more than a case.

It is often some of the most important life-altering situations a person will face in his or her life.

When you hire us you hire a team of professional attorneys, legal assistants, and staff who take the time to explain your case, communicate with you regularly, and work tirelessly to achieve the best possible results for you, our client.
