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 lawyer you choose is critical.

Here you really work with an entire team of nationally recognized lawyers.

Whether you’re seeking a criminal defense lawyer, a federal criminal defense lawyer, a divorce lawyer, an accident injury lawyer, or you’re pursuing a state or federal criminal appeal or post conviction 11.07 writ, you want an experienced lawyer 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.

The lawyers and staff at Blizzard and Zimmerman attorneys work together with diversified skills that complement each other. We work as a team.

Our attorneys have a deep understanding of the laws and criminal justice system. However, there is no one attorney who knows it all. That’s why we rely on each other for different perspectives or previous experiences that can help us better represent your case in court!

Criminal Defense Lawyer Jacob Blizzard is certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in BOTH Criminal Law and Criminal Appellate Law.

Becoming a board certified lawyer is one of the highest achievements an attorney can reach in their career.

Texas Board of Legal Specialization Certification is a special stamp of approval issued by the Texas state bar to recognize an advanced level of knowledge, expertise, professionalism, and ethics.

Of the 100,000 lawyers in Texas, Jacob is one of only 87 lawyers in the state who are board certified in BOTH criminal law and criminal appellate law.

What if you have a good case? The last thing that any client needs is an attorney who tells them to plead guilty because he or she will not take the time and effort into trying their hardest on your behalf. There are many reasons why some criminal defense attorneys may not want to go to trial. However, a lawyer’s unwillingness to try cases should not be the reason why a client pleads guilty. Before you hire a criminal defense attorney, go ahead and ask them “Do you have experience in taking a case like mine to trial?” Better yet,  “Have you ever had a win at trial, in a case with these charges?” “When was the last time you actually tried a case?” And a final telling question,  “How many trials have you actually done and not done a plea agreement?”

Abilene’s Largest Criminal Defense Law Firm

We question everything.

We believe every client & case is different.

We believe the outcome should reflect those differences rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.

Abilene’s Family Law Attorney

Sometimes the most difficult decision you will ever make is whether or not to end your marriage. You may be feeling guilty, fearful of what could happen and how a divorce will affect your kids. You’re uncertain about who should get custody if either spouse wants them despite any abuse they’ve experienced at home. This life-altering choice sometimes leaves you with more questions than answers – but that’s where our family law attorneys come into play! They have experience dealing with these issues so don’t hesitate. Call today for a consultation.

We’ll be your number one advocate. When you need a lawyer who will fight for what is right, our team of skilled and passionate legal professionals provide support in every step along the way. That means protecting custody rights during a high-conflict divorce or by providing guidance on how best to reach an amicable settlement.

Caring & Communication Matter

Consistently the largest complaint people have with their lawyers 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 criminal defense lawyer is retained; however, the true colors of the lawyer emerge as someone who won’t return phone calls, respond to emails, or otherwise appear to take an interest in the case or situation.

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

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

To us, it’s more than a case.

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

Hiring a criminal defense attorney who actually takes cases to trial can be difficult. That’s why it is important for you, as a client of such a lawyer (or potential client), to look at their track record and see if they have any successes under their belt before giving them your business – or any other legal professional’s. Expecting someone without experience in this area will only end up costing more money down the line when trials are lost because no one knows how best to handle certain situations like guilty pleas, plea bargain deals, jury selection, and more.

When you hire us you hire a team of professional criminal defense lawyers, criminal appeal lawyers, divorce lawyers, family 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.

    Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys were the best experience. These guys saved my life and I truly am thankful for everything they did for me. They helped me in every way possible. I couldn’t stress enough how well of a job Dax did as well … More as Mr. Jacob Blizzard himself. I would recommend this law firm to anyone and everyone. These are the go to guys if you’re ever in need and are looking for a great defense team. My life has changed because of these guys and there isn’t enough words I could say to appreciate and praise them. God Bless Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys, they are here to truly help and make a difference in your case.

    I would like to thank Karisa for her time in dealing with my concerns in my son's case. Karisa is very caring and considerate. I spent about an hour on the phone with her and she did not rush me off that in itself is rare in this day … More and time. I believe Dax has the best legal secretary hands-down such a wonderful person I cannot say enough.

    There’s a reason Blizzard and Zimmerman is rated so highly… for their associates. I worked with Dax Pueschel and it was a great experience. He always kept me up to date on my case whether it was by phone, text, or email. He even went out … More of his way to reset a court date for me even though I hadn’t hired him to do that. Dax is honest and doesn’t sugar coat anything. He tells you how it is and gets you the best outcome possible. I was facing time but luckily I got probation. And even though the reason you hire him is to represent you, he is a very caring guy who genuinely wants you to help you better yourself.

    From my first meeting with Dax Pueschel, I gained more insight and hope into my case than I had with any other attorney. His approach to my case was from the standpoint of recovery which was a refreshing and novel for me. I personally struggle … More with mental health, and Dax offered me numerous avenues for help beyond that of just a legal standpoint. I admittedly felt a bit intimidated on my first meeting since this was my first offense that required council, but Dax was both comforting and very informative. He made me feel that the process would be a partnership where we would both work hard to achieve the most favorable outcome. From beginning to end, Dax and his paralegal, Karisa Hagle, stood by me and supported me through every step of the process. They both remained constantly and consistently available to my needs and completely changed my outlook on attorneys in general. In the end, I can honestly say that I am beyond satisfied with the result and would highly recommend anyone seeking legal assistance to reach out to Dax. I know that decision for me will forever change the trajectory of my life towards a path of hope and righteousness and hope.

    Dax and his team were extremely helpful with my situation. He laid everything out on the table from best case scenario to worst. He also prepares you for the worst, that way you are lined up if your situation goes that route. Honestly, … More I will be using Dax and the Blizzard team for any and all legal issues that may (hopefully never) arise in the future. 10/10 highly recommended!

    My experience was very professional. For the service I required was time efficient and everyone was very polite. I would and will recommend them to anyone who needs assistance.
