San Antonio Misdemeanor Defense Attorneys

Fighting Texas Misdemeanor Charges

Misdemeanor offenses are considered to be less serious crimes than felonies. Despite this, they can still impose life-changing consequences well into the future. Some misdemeanors carry certain restrictions, such as license suspension and restrictions against firearm possession. All are punishable by potential jail time, fines, and probation constraints.

Furthermore, a misdemeanor conviction results in a permanent criminal record which can negatively affect your future. Background checks, which are common in today’s society, can easily turn up your misdemeanor history to a future employer, landlord, educational institution, and more. Because of all these adverse effects of being found guilty of a misdemeanor, you need to fight back with an aggressive defense. At Smith & Vinson Law Firm, that is exactly what we do.

Discuss your misdemeanor charges with our legal team by contacting us at (210) 960-9557. We offer free consultations.

  • 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!”
