Austin Misdemeanor Defense Attorneys

Fighting Against Life-Altering Consequences

In Texas, there are misdemeanor and felony offenses. A misdemeanor charge is considered “less serious” than a felony but can still carry life-changing consequences that can affect your life. It is important to remember that not all misdemeanors are the same. For example, certain misdemeanor offenses require that your driver’s licenses be suspended; others can require that you to never possess a firearm. A misdemeanor offense can carry mandatory jail time, significant fines, and probation restrictions.

Further, a conviction comes with having a criminal record for the rest of your life. Today, background checks are more prevalent than ever. With a few simple clicks, employers, universities, and apartments can look up your criminal history. Let the lawyers at Smith & Vinson Law Firm fight for you.

  • 5 Stars in making me feel like a top priority!

    “Jarrod Smith of Smith and Vinson Law Firm provided me with the best service I could have possibly asked for. Having no background in law and finding myself in a situation that left me feeling extremely vulnerable, I felt quickly at ease in their care. They were very reasonable with my situation and helped work around my needs in providing me the most support and information on how to best handle my case. I'd recommend this firm to anyone seeking help with a traffic violation of any kind. I feel that if it weren't for them I would have been heavily misguided and probably would not have made it through the system with the best possible outcome for me. 5 Stars for their service, generosity, and in making me feel like a top priority!”

    Andrew

  • 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!”
