Advocating for Your Rights Under The Law

In Texas, crimes are divided into felonies and misdemeanors. Both can carry serious consequences and require personal attention and dedication to secure your freedom and protect your fundamental right of liberty. Federal criminal cases require unique attention to detail and knowledge of the federal criminal system, which moves very quickly compared to state systems.

Federal Criminal Defense

A federal criminal charge is difficult for the average state criminal defense attorney to handle correctly.

Jacob Blizzard is 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. Federal criminal cases include drug possession and distribution as well as conspiracy to distribute controlled substances; child pornography possession, distribution, and production; illegal gun possession; fraud; and more.

A person accused of a federal criminal offense faces:

  • Serious penalties
  • Quick trial settings and timelines
  • Dedicated federal investigators and prosecutors

Federal prosecutors need to be countered with dedicated and experienced federal criminal defense attorneys who have the experience and licensing to handle your case.

Our team has the experience required to give you high-quality representation in confronting such serious charges.

If you need a federal criminal defense lawyer team to work for you, rely on the experience of Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys. Contact us today for a consultation with our attorneys.
