We represented a young mother who had been involved in an abusive and controlling relationship.
Our combination of family law and criminal representation came together for this joint representation when Client confronted her husband about his abuse and attempted to stop him from leaving while intoxicated with the children.
We represented a foreign exchange student who faced deportation after not stopping his vehicle soon enough and the police ultimately charged him with evading arrest (a third degree felony) and driving while intoxicated.
Meet our client, an 18-year-old African refugee who found himself facing a daunting sentence for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. But something didn’t sit right with us. After digging deeper, we discovered his case was far more complex than it seemed.
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 in a divorce 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 provides support at 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 cases. Whether it be criminal defense family law or personal injury.
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 our Abilene law firm 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.
