The Bexar County District Attorney and City Attorney's offices file thousands of misdemeanors each year. Just because misdemeanor crimes are not as serious as felonies does not mean that they cannot affect your life. Even misdemeanor probation can last up to two years.
Certain misdemeanor convictions can still adversely impact you in a divorce or child custody proceeding, lead to lengthy driver's license suspensions, disqualification from receiving federal financial aid to attend college, and restrictions on your ability to own a firearm. A misdemeanor criminal conviction will appear on your criminal record forever, and theft and assault convictions may adversely affect your ability to get a job.

“I would highly recommend him if ever you need an attorney.”I contacted Mr. Ambrosino about an issue we were having about two months ago. He was very responsive and always easy to communicate with. If ever I had a question during the process, he was quick to respond with an answer. He was kind enough to even email me while on vacation with his own family which showed he truly cares about his clients. Mr. Ambrosino took the time to educate me on the current laws and the court process. He sent me all the court filings and paperwork for my own files and always kept me up to date. In the end we received the outcome we were hoping for and I attribute that to Mr. Ambrosino’s hard work and knowledge. I would highly recommend him if ever you need an attorney. Thank you for your help Mr. Ambrosino.- C. S.
