Parole Defense Attorneys in Austin

Working Tirelessly to Protect Your Freedom

An individual convicted of an offense and sentenced to prison with the possibility of parole will receive a hearing where a Board will determine if the person could be released on parole or discretionary mandatory supervision. Although these hearings are fairly informal, it is best to have a skilled attorney provide legal representation during the proceedings.

Our team at Smith & Vinson Law Firm is familiar with the Texas parole process, and we will provide the legal counsel you need to seek release from incarceration. While working with you, we will be focused on protecting your rights and securing your freedom. We will take the time to get to know you, your family, and your situation to build a defense and help the Board see you as more than just a file or number.

Schedule a free consultation with us by calling (512) 359-3743.

Getting Started Early to Build Your Case

The Texas State Board of Pardons and Paroles identifies incarcerated individuals 6 months before they are eligible to be scheduled for a parole hearing. Rather than waiting until you are parole-eligible to seek legal guidance, it is a good idea to get started on the process early. Having an attorney who will spend time learning about you is crucial to working toward a successful vote at the hearing.

We know that past mistakes don’t define who an individual is today, which is why we will visit you wherever you are incarcerated in order to get to know who you are as a person. We will also spend time interviewing your family members to understand the whole picture. Armed with this information, we will build a compelling argument for your release.

Skilled Representation for Parole Revocation Hearings

If you are out on parole and have been accused of violating the terms of your release, the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole will schedule a revocation hearing to determine whether or not you should be put back in prison. Depending on the specifics of your circumstances, you will either receive a blue warrant or summons and might have to wait in jail until your hearing date.

Our Austin parole defense attorneys will work hard to have you released from jail by securing a bond or having the warrant replaced with a summons. We will also provide competent representation during the hearing. To develop a persuasive defense on your behalf, we will work closely with you to gain an understanding of your situation.

Providing the Legal Help You Need

At Smith & Vinson Law Firm, we keep your best interests in mind as we seek to obtain a successful vote at parole or revocation hearings. Understanding that your freedom and future is at stake, we will thoroughly review the details of your case to build a solid defense on your behalf.

  • 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!”

    Ronald D.

  • 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!”

  • 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.”
