Austin Robbery Attorneys

Fighting Relentlessly on Your Behalf

In Texas, robbery is a felony offense that is penalized by years in prison and steep fines. The consequences of a conviction could stay with you for the rest of your life, making it hard to find a job, get credit, or even attend school. Because the stakes are so high in these types of matters, it’s crucial to retain the services of an experienced lawyer who can present a compelling argument on your behalf. At Smith & Vinson Law Firm, our team has intimate knowledge of the legal system and knows how to effectively handle robbery cases.

If you were accused of this offense, call us at (512) 359-3743 to get started on your case.

Texas Robbery Laws

Under Texas penal code 29.01, it is unlawful for a person to knowingly cause or attempt to cause bodily injury to another to obtain a tangible or intangible item of value. To land a conviction, the prosecutor must prove that the individual meant to commit a theft and harmed the alleged victim in the course of the act. The harm does not have to be physical; if the alleged victim claims they feared for their safety, that might be enough to bring robbery charges.

The potential punishments for this second-degree felony offense include:

  • 2 to 20 years in prison
  • $10,000 in fines

Aggravated Robbery

The offense could be elevated to aggravated robbery if the person:

  • Seriously injures another person;
  • Uses or displays a deadly weapon; or
  • Injures, threatens to injure, or puts someone in fear of injury if the alleged victim is:
    • 65 years of age or over or
    • Disabled

Aggravated robbery is a first-degree felony, and could be penalized as follows:

  • 5 to 99 years in prison
  • $10,000 in fines

  • Exceptionally versed in the intricacies of Texas criminal law

    “Having never been exposed to the criminal system, hiring an attorney was daunting task. Attorney Brad Vinson was informative, professional yet sympathetic with his approach to my case. Mr. Vinson was open to opinion and ensured that all legal avenues were considered and addressed before presenting a course of action. Ultiamtely, Mr. Vinson was able to negotiate a reasonable settlement dispite many hoops and hurdles presented by the prosecuting county. I would highly recommend Smith and Vinson for representation in a criminal matter.”

  • Top Notch Lawyers

    “I want to start off by saying Smith and Vinson Law Firm is top notch lawyers. I had a case that the DA and prosecutor was very stern about their decision and not letting up on my charges. My lawyer Matt Watkins treated my case as if he was on trial himself. He went in and fought until we won the battle. Matt Watkins spent countless hours working and reviewing my case and ensuring that my case was dismissed. I was highly satisfied on how Matt showed a passion for my case and handled it aggressively and professionally. I just want to thank this law firm one last time for handling business when it came down to crunch time. I want to also recognize Jarrod Smith for overseeing my case and giving me words of encouragement and showing 130% competence and confidence, while doing so. I will recommend this law firm to anyone that is in need of the legal issues that this firm specialize in. THANKS ONCE AGAIN!!!!!!!!”

  • 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!”
