Misdemeanor Crimes Facing Criminal Charges? Protect Your Freedom Before Time Runs Out

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.
