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.

    “Jarrod has worked on both sides of the judicial divide, both prosecutor and defender, and is well-positioned to evaluate a client’s chances and recommend what to do about them. I first met when he was Jarrod dedicated and diligent member of South Texas Law Review. He was dedicated because he volunteered as an assistant editor-in-chief. He was diligent because he pitched in during semester breaks. I know Jarrod has the temperament of a great advocate.”
