Austin DWI Lawyers

The Powerful Representation You Need

Have you been accused of drunk driving? If so, you do not have to face these charges alone! Our Austin DWI attorneys at Smith & Vinson Law Firm are here to protect your rights, your freedom, and your driver’s license. Representing clients across Austin, we have a unique understanding of both sides of DWI proceedings, as one of our partners is a former prosecutor. We use this knowledge to benefit our clients as we fight to protect their interests.

DWI defense counsel is a primary focus of our practice. A conviction for driving while intoxicated can have many consequences, some of which are not immediately apparent. The consequences of a conviction for drunk driving can be serious, including jail time, fines, license suspension, increased insurance costs, and more. If you want the best opportunity at avoiding a DWI conviction and these serious penalties, you need to put a strong attorney on your side.

Time is of The Essence After a DWI Arrest

A colorful and vibrant city, Austin is a wonderful place to live, work, and visit. With its restaurants, bars, and nightlife, it is also a primary focus for DWI enforcement. Areas like 6th Street are heavily policed, and this can lead to police stops and arrests for suspected drunk driving.

Please note that you have only 15 days from the date of your arrest to request an administrative hearing regarding your driver’s license. Your license will be automatically suspended if you do not request this hearing!

Representing Drivers Facing DWI Charges in Austin, TX

Smith & Vinson Law Firm fights for the rights of drivers across the Austin area who have been arrested for driving while intoxicated. Remember, the police may only need probable cause to arrest you for DWI, but the prosecutor will need to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt in order to secure a conviction. Our Austin DWI lawyers can build a strong defense against even the most seemingly “open-and-shut” case, challenging evidence and the arresting officer’s testimony to protect your interests.

We may be able to weaken the prosecuting attorney’s case by:

  • Questioning the administration and grading of field sobriety tests.
  • Challenging the reliability of a breath test or blood test.
  • Challenging the validity of the initial police stop.
  • Uncovering a violation of your constitutional rights.

A former prosecutor, Jarrod Smith understands how the “other side” thinks. He and Brad Vinson use their skill and understanding of the technical aspects of DWI cases to assert and defend our clients’ rights every step of the way.

Hear What They Have to Say

  • 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!”

  • 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!”

  • 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”

  • Professional and effective attorney

    “Brad was extremely professional throughout the entire process. He was direct and prompt in responding to my inquiries and I felt at ease knowing he was taking care of my case. I will definitely use Brad and his firm in the future and highly recommend them if you need an excellent defense attorney! Thanks Brad!”

  • 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!”
