Blizzard & Zimmerman Attorneys are criminal appeal lawyers. We continually research and prepare appellate briefs for clients from across Texas who have been convicted of a criminal offense. They face an uphill battle attempting to overturn a conviction in state or federal court.

Habeas corpus is used as a post conviction remedy for persons who have been convicted and imprisoned for state or federal crimes to challenge the legality of the laws that were used in the legal proceedings that resulted in their imprisonment.

It is normally used after a direct appeal has failed.

Due to the large number of habeas corpus petitions that state and federal judges receive there are firm procedures that govern which are denied and which are allowed to move forward.

It takes knowledge and experience like that of Blizzard & Zimmerman Attorneys to prepare briefs that convince a state or federal appellate court to overturn these convictions.

Clients who face this uphill battle can have confidence in the skills and abilities of Jacob Blizzard, Matt Zimmerman, Sarah Durham, and Morgan Walker when it comes to post conviction writs of habeas corpus.
