RESULTS: Eliminating Burdens

Criminal Appeal Attorneys Jacob Blizzard and Sarah Durham handled a criminal appeal for a client and this client was returned to probation after a year of waiting for the Texas Court of Appeals’ decision.

Although the Court of Appeals upheld the trial court’s initial decision for probation, our representation did NOT stop there.

One of our criminal defense attorneys met with the client and advocated for their progress while the appeal was pending to show the State and Court that the client was engaged in positive activities.

Our team at Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys was able to remove the weight of working community service and instead allow our client to donate to the Food Bank so they could continue working their full-time job.

At Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys we care about what others consider “the little things,” to give our clients the opportunity to succeed.

When you come to Blizzard & Zimmerman Attorneys, we will take your needs seriously and work hard to earn your trust. If you need an attorney who will fight tirelessly on your behalf to seek the best possible result in your case, contact us today.[/column]
