Federal Criminal Appeal Attorney

If you’ve been wrongfully convicted of federal criminal charges and live anywhere in the state of Texas you need an experienced federal criminal appeal attorney to handle your case.

Due to the wrong interpretation of the law, a judge or jury may have provided a verdict against you or your loved one and you may need the services of a skilled and experienced appeals lawyer.

The work that a federal appeals lawyer does is very different from the work of a criminal trial lawyer.

Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys have extensive experience preparing appellate briefs, 2255 motions, and presenting compelling legal arguments in Texas state and US federal appeals.

Unlike jury trials, where the facts in the case are considered and determined, the focus of an appellate hearing focuses entirely on the interpretation of the law.

A successful appellate lawyer must have a solid understanding of the law, legal research and writing skills, and the ability to use oral argument to persuade a panel of judges to accept a particular interpretation of the law.

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

Jacob is one of 87 attorneys out of 100,000 attorneys in the state of Texas who is board certified in both Criminal Law and Criminal Appellate Law.

Jacob will listen to you carefully and work to bring every fact that may have been previously overlooked to the attention of the federal judges. His investigations are thorough and his findings could set you free.

Jacob practices in the Texas state and US federal appeals legal system. If your sentence violates the sentencing guidelines, or you were convicted because of a faulty arrest procedure, incorrect investigation or evidence tampering, the negligence of your original lawyer, or jury error, you deserve justice.

When you have been convicted of a federal crime, you should choose a firm that uses a team of attorneys, headed by a lawyer who is dual Texas Board of Legal Specialization certified in criminal trial law and criminal appellate law.

The Federal Criminal Appeal Clock is Ticking

Federal criminal cases require unique attention to detail and knowledge of the federal criminal system, which moves very quickly.

In a federal case, you are required to file for postconviction relief within one year of the written date on the judgment and sentence in your case.

Because federal law can be complex and because federal investigations are conducted by some of the toughest law enforcement agencies in the country, your case will benefit from the assistance of our law firm.

Our team has the experience required to give you the best representation possible.
