Texas Felony Offenses

Felony crimes are those offenses considered to be the most serious by the court system. They carry the heaviest penalties and the worst social stigma. Prosecutors are generally very aggressive in seeking a conviction for a felony. Because of this, it is crucial that you mount an equally aggressive defense. You will need a team that will fight hard for a favorable case resolution using all of its skills and legal savvy. With a former prosecutor on board at Smith & Vinson Law Firm, you can rely on us.

Felonies are divided into five classifications in Texas:

  • A state jail felony carries penalties of up to 180 days to two years in a state jail and/or a fine of up to $10,000
  • A third-degree felony carries penalties of up to two to 10 years in a state prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000
  • A second-degree felony carries penalties of up to two to 20 years in a state prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000
  • A first-degree felony carries penalties of up to five to 99 years in a state prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000
  • A capital felony is punishable by a life sentence in prison or the death penalty

Common felony charges include aggravated or sexual assault, family violence, DWI, drug offenses, robbery, evading arrest, various types of theft, and weapon charges.

  • 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 NONE, 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”

    Manuel R.

  • 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!”


  • 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!”
