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!”

  • He's a real lawyer!

    “A civil issue arose in Austin with a family member. We sought the advice of a well named Austin attorney. This unnamed attorney provided egregious legal advice. In court, a lifetime civil injunction was ruled by the judge on this non-criminal civil issue. Once learning of this judgement we immediately started looking for another attorney and found Brad Vinson, with Smith and Vinson. Simply put, Brad had this entire debacle reversed and a new judgement set for what is customarily ruled in similar cases. It didn't take long either. I only wish we had called Brad first. He's a real lawyer!”

    David

  • Second to NONE

    “I would love to add my thanks and heart felt appreciation for the help that your law firm provided me. Before I met you guys my situation looked very bleak and quite honestly your dedication to my case really carried over this past year and the reward was not only one felony dismissal but two. Thank you from the Ramirez family, I will always be great full and you guys have earned a spot in my family. For anyone reading, this firm is second to NON, they know what there talking about and do exactly what they promise to do. Very professional, on time and and educate you along the whole process. I had alot to lose and you guys gave it all back to me and finally represented what true Justice is here in America. God bless you both and God bless your firm”

  • Fantastic Attorney = Fantastic Results

    “I hired Brad Vinson to handle a legal matter and I could not have made a better decision! Brad was attentive, listened to the facts of the case, and strategized a plan that would lead to the best result possible. Brad was communicative, available, and ultimately delivered on what he stated he would do. During this process, there were no unexpected hiccups because Brad understands the law, and understands how to defend his clients. There is no doubt that I would recommend Brad and the whole team at Smith & Vinson to represent any individual that needs legal representation. The whole team is fantastic, and delivers fantastic results.”
