A Defense Against Petty Crimes and Property Damage Charges

The act of vandalism, the act of damaging someone’s property or vehicle, is called criminal mischief in Texas. Our firm aggressively represents people facing criminal mischief charges stemming from, among other things:

  • Defacing property
  • Damaging an automobile
  • Breaking windows
  • Damaging or destroying school property
  • Damaging or destroying homes

While acts of criminal mischief do not rise to the level of felony crimes, they can still be very damaging to your reputation when they show up as part of a background check. That could damage your employment prospects, allowing the damage from a conviction to haunt you for decades.
