Austin DWI Lawyers

The Powerful Representation You Need

A colorful and vibrant city, Austin is a wonderful place to live, work, and visit. With its restaurants, bars, and nightlife, it is also a primary focus for DWI enforcement. Areas like 6th Street are heavily policed, and this can lead to police stops and arrests for suspected drunk driving.

DWI defense counsel is a primary focus of our practice. The consequences of a conviction for drunk driving can be serious, including jail time, fines, license suspension, increased insurance costs, and more. Our Austin DWI attorneys are here to protect your rights, your freedom, and your driver’s license.

Please note that you have only 15 days from the date of your arrest to request an administrative hearing regarding your driver’s license. Your license will be automatically suspended if you do not request this hearing – call (512) 359-3743 for immediate help!

Representing Drivers Facing DWI Charges in Austin, TX

Smith & Vinson Law Firm fights for the rights of drivers across the Austin area who have been arrested for DWI. Remember, the police may only need probable cause to arrest you for DWI, but the prosecutor will need to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt in order to secure a conviction. Our Austin DWI lawyers can build a strong defense against even the most seemingly “open-and-shut” case, challenging evidence and the arresting officer’s testimony to protect your interests.

We may be able to weaken the prosecuting attorney’s case by:

  • Questioning the administration and grading of field sobriety tests.
  • Challenging the reliability of a breath test or blood test.
  • Challenging the validity of the initial police stop.
  • Uncovering a violation of your constitutional rights.

A former prosecutor, Jarrod Smith understands how the “other side” thinks. He and Brad Vinson use their skill and understanding of the technical aspects of DWI cases to assert and defend our clients’ rights every step of the way.

Contact our firm at (512) 359-3743 for the powerful DWI defense counsel you need.

  • Professional representation at its best!

    “First and foremost, I would like to thank Brad and Jarrod for handling my case. Both of these men represented with much professionalism and didn't at all treat me like a criminal. At times I was skeptical since I was facing so much uncertainty. Both men obviously could not predict the outcome of things, but assured me that they will work hard for me. They sure kept their promise on that! Both men took the time to get to know me and my situation before designing a plan to represent me. When I was in doubt with much fear they reassured me that "things will be all right". I am grateful for the representation both men have provided me and without hesitation I would speak volumes of their service. Thank you so much!”
