Open/Close Menu Fighting For Our Clients

Winning a Texas state or federal criminal appeal

The journey to win an appeal in Texas state or Federal court requires capable representation. Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys strongly advocate for their clients by drawing on their experience in Texas and Federal courts and by following a strategic procedure. We also work with a team approach to each case.

Discovering Mistakes and Errors in your Trial and Pretrial Hearings

Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys do an in-depth review of the entire process of our appeal clients’ cases. A majority of our appeals use the 11.07 writ of habeas corpus.

This will include taking a look at each and every word that was said on the record. This includes comments made by all parties through court hearings and your trial.

This has to be done to determine possible:

  1. Mistakes made by your trial counsel
  2. Improper comments from the prosecutor
  3. Mistakes that may have been made by the judge

Certain missteps and mistakes do violate our clients’ rights.

This review helps us build strong arguments in an appeal.

Appeals In Both Texas Law and United States Constitutional Law

Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys know that arguments may be made on appeal based on both Texas case law and United States constitutional law. It’s crucial that your counsel has the experience to win an appeal

Using our experience with appeals and the 11.07 writ of habeas corpus, we focus specifically on arguments that can overturn a conviction.

These are just of few of the reasons why Blizzard & Zimmerman has garnered successful results from the Texas Courts of Appeal and Federal appellate Court.
