San Antonio Intoxication Assault Defense Lawyers

We Know How to Protect Your Rights

In Texas, if you drink and drive and then cause another person to be injured, you may be charged with the crime of intoxication assault. As such, you will be facing a felony charge that is considered a serious offense. This is especially true should the victim suffer severe physical injuries. An individual may face intoxication assault charges for causing harm to another while operating a car, truck, motorcycle, aircraft, boat, or any type of watercraft while impaired by alcohol or drugs.

Intoxication assault is a matter that calls for a capable attorney, preferably one who focuses on Texas DWI defense. You will find skilled and dedicated legal representation for such a matter at Smith & Vinson Law Firm. Our San Antonio intoxication assault defense lawyers offer focused and diligent legal service for all DWI-related charges.

Texas Intoxication Assault Cases

Your intoxication level in this type of case will be determined by your blood alcohol content (BAC). If your BAC exceeds the legal limit of .08 percent, you are considered impaired. You can also be arrested and charged for intoxication assault while operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs.

An intoxication assault is charged as a third-degree felony. A conviction occurs by proving that your intoxication led to actions that caused another person serious bodily injuries. These are injuries that cause permanent damage, disfigurement, or loss of life.

Penalties for Intoxication Assault

The penalties for an intoxication assault conviction include:

  • Two to 10 years of imprisonment
  • A fine of $10,000
  • Both a fine and prison sentence

In cases where the assault was committed against a firefighter, policeman, or an emergency medical technician, it may result in second-degree felony charges punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

Our Clients Are Our Biggest Endorsers
Hear What They Have to Say

  • 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!”


  • Outstanding Lawyer

    “He is well versed in evidence and criminal law nuances, skills which allow him to level the playing field for his clients and make certain they get a fair chance at justice.”


  • Awesome communication

    “They handle my case incredibly well and warned me on the possible negative outcomes, overall completely satisfied me through the whole process. ”

  • 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!”


  • 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!”
