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.

    Ronald D.

  • 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!”


  • Exceptionally versed in the intricacies of Texas criminal law

    “Having never been exposed to the criminal system, hiring an attorney was daunting task. Attorney Brad Vinson was informative, professional yet sympathetic with his approach to my case. Mr. Vinson was open to opinion and ensured that all legal avenues were considered and addressed before presenting a course of action. Ultiamtely, Mr. Vinson was able to negotiate a reasonable settlement dispite many hoops and hurdles presented by the prosecuting county. I would highly recommend Smith and Vinson for representation in a criminal matter.”


  • Professional representation at its best!

    “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 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”
