Client Testimonials:

Smith & Vinson both are great guys. Very knowledgeable and professional in their field of expertise. I will have to say: this duo will do an excellent job on looking out for your best interests in the court room. – Anon.


Fantastic job by these two. I was charged with a DWI, first time offense. They will work with you, plain and simple. DWI lawyer costs are expensive. They will work with you as long as you keep in communication with them. Both gentleman displayed the utmost professionalism from the first phone call, when I called in, to when the judge slammed down the hammer saying: “DWI is dismissed.” When you need to hear from them, they respond in a quick manner. Always available to answer questions. A friend in a low place, are these guys.

If you are charged with a DWI, especially first-time offense like myself, they will do everything they can do to have that case dismissed and sealed for good. The dumbest lapse in judgement on my part so far in my life, and they made it so I am not permanently ruined. – R.D.


The lawyers of Smith & Vinson went out of their way in representing me over a traffic violation. I worked directly with Brad Vinson. They did everything possible to see that I received a fair trial. Their patience and dedication to my case was very impressive. Even though I didn’t win, they understood that the principle of telling the truth is imperative to me. It was so important to me that I flew from my home to Santa Barbara to tell my side of what had occurred. I would highly recommend Jerrod Smith and Brad Vinson to anyone seeking justice. – S.O.


I was arrested for a DWI in October 2017, and by early April all charges were dropped. Because of the diligence executed by the attorneys at Smith & Vinson, the DA decided not to go forward with the case. They were consistently professional and maintained constant communication with me. I would highly recommend them if you find yourself faced with any alcohol-related charges.

One more note: I am located in San Marcos, which is where I was charged, and although they are located in Austin, they worked with me. – K.S.

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 & 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! – D.


First and foremost, I would like to thank Brad and Jarrod for handling my case. Both of these men represented me with much professionalism and didn’t at all treat me like a criminal. At times, I was skeptical, since I was facing so much uncertainty. Both men obviously could not predict the outcome of things, but assured me that they will work hard for me. They sure kept their promise on that! Both men took the time to get to know me and my situation before designing a plan to represent me. When I was in doubt with much fear, they reassured me that “things will be all right”. 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! – V.

I first met Jarrod when he was a dedicated and diligent member of South Texas Law Review. He was dedicated because he volunteered as an assistant editor-in-chief. He was diligent because he pitched in during semester breaks. I know Jarrod has the temperament of a great advocate. – B.
