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.
