He is one of only 87 lawyers out of 100,000 lawyers in the State of Texas to be board certified in both criminal law and criminal appellate law.

His strong belief in advocacy for people is important to him, and he has built a team of highly skilled lawyers to litigate any criminal case.

The Texas Penal Code defines reckless homicide as:

  • Recklessly causing the death of an individual.

The penalty for reckless homicide is that of a second-degree felony, which can result in 2-20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

So the penalties here in Texas are severe.

If you or a loved one have been accused of reckless homicide, it’s critical that you hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Attorney Jacob Blizzard is the only Abilene attorney who is dual board certified in both criminal law and criminal appeals. He is also one of a handful of attorneys out of over 100,000 lawyers in Texas with both of those board certifications.
