Energetic and ambitious. He represented me on a 89/55 with a pretty bad driving record prior. I'm a MD driver with a Fairfax Co charge so I didn't understand the impact of the charge until very close to my court date. We were able to reschedule to court date, and he gave me sound advice on how to prepare before court. Those preparations and his eagerness to do his best for me helped reduce the speed violation, reduce the charge against me to speeding only and walk away with a fraction of the fine I initially thought I'd face. No bullying. No BS. He was really a great, personable guy.
Brenton Daniel Vincenzes has my highest recommendation! I contacted Mr Vincenzes by phone and he returned my call in the evening hours and talked to me at length concerning my case before I had even contracted him as my attorney. While conducting my interviews to hire an attorney, I spoke with several attorneys who were perhaps more experienced and some less expensive attorneys. However, Mr Vincenzes stood out above the others and he just felt like the right choice. I believe he genuinely cared about the outcome from my initial phone call to the last. Once contracted, I never had to leave my home in NC for appointments or court. He made my involvement so simple and followed up on each exchange and even after court proceedings . Aside from having a legal issue, it was truly a pleasure to work with him and I am sincerely grateful for his representation. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal counsel in the Fairfax county area. or any other area that he practices law.
I was referred to Brent by one of his old classmates who I happened to work with.
While my case was a little odd in the fact that I woke up to police in my bedroom after being asleep, Brent was very professional and assertive when it came to my case, even though I am sure he was working on a lot more important ones.
My first correspondence with Brent was about 2 months before my actual hearing, and we were in communication the entire time leading up to the hearing (which Brent had the case dismissed within 10 minutes of being in the courtroom).
I would highly recommend Brent to anyone in the Northern VA area due to his professionalism and extensive knowledge of the legal system. Brent gave me confidence from Day 1 that we would win the case, and delivered on that promise when it mattered most.
I am very satisfied with the outcome of my case. This past year, I had an unlucky day, I was given three traffic tickets, all at once. Mr. Vincenzes was more than I could have wished for. He did not only reduce the infractions from three to one; he also managed to keep positive points on my record. He kept me updated throughout the process and on the court date. He is extremely professional, well prepared, and a pleasure to deal with.
I was so happy with the service I received by Brenton. He was very good in taking care of my special circumstances and getting me the best outcome in court I could have ever hoped for! I am from Michigan and my court date was in Virginia. Mr. Vincenzes made sure he did everything he could so that I did not have to drive 15 hours to my court date! He kept in contact with me very well, answered all my emails timely, answered his cell phone and called me back every time, and updated my online case as often as possible so that I was always in touch with my case's status. I was worried about sending money that far away without ever meeting the person, but I knew the first time I talked to him that he knew what he was doing, and I was right! Great guy that works for his clients and their needs!
I received a reckless driving charge and was very anxious and nervous to get this matter handled (having never received this type of charge). I did a lot of research on attorneys and decided to go with Mr. Vincenzes based on the numerous positive reviews and I am REALLY glad I did. Mr. Vincenzes was on point from day one. He made the whole process less stressful and I knew then that everything would be ok.
After nearly 20 years of driving, I got my first-ever speeding ticket for going 15 mph over the speed limit, which is a four-point violation. Though that's not nearly as serious as, say, a reckless-driving charge, I was nevertheless intent upon doing what it takes to maintain what had been until then a pristine driving record.
But I didn't want to waste my time and suffer additional embarrassment by babbling to the judge in front of traffic court.
So I decided to hire an attorney whose practice focuses on traffic infractions and is situated in proximity to the Fairfax General District Court. I knew the importance of having someone who would be familiar with all the key players at this court, from the Commonwealth’s attorneys to the presiding judges.
After chatting with two other attorneys with similar qualifications, I selected Mr. Vincenzes.
Mr. Vincenzes answered my numerous questions (and subsequent follow-up questions) quickly and knowledgeably. He detailed the array of possible outcomes, but nevertheless made it clear that he intended to pursue the best possible outcome for my case.
However, the pessimist in me still assumed that the most likely outcome was that my charge would be reduced to the next tier down, which would be 9 mph over the speed limit, a three-point violation.
But Mr. Vincenzes successfully negotiated a plea for a non-moving violation, with 0 points on my driving record.
I am ecstatic about this result and wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Vincenzes to anyone in a similar or even more serious situation.
I was facing a misdemeanor in Fairfax County and being a professional person I was quite concerned about having a 'criminal record' as the result of some very irresponsible drinking behavior. I found Brent on the internet, contacted him by email, received a prompt reply and we set up a meeting. I was immediately reassured. I knew he would provide competent representation and he offered to work with me regarding a payment plan. He told me the steps I needed to take to help my case. I took his advice and the Asst. Commonwealth attorney did not prosecute the case. I was free to leave and get back to my life! He always returned my calls and he did everything I hired him to do. Couldn't have received a better result and I am so relieved.
Brenton was everything I could ask for in a lawyer. Right from the initial phone conversation he displayed extensive knowledge of the legal system and thoroughly explained my options for my specific case. Brenton was and did everything he said he would in a more than timely fashion. I was more than pleased with the outcome of my case and Brenton would be the first lawyer i called if i ever needed any sort of legal representation in the future. I would highly recommend Brenton to anyone who is looking for a fair, well priced, knowledgeable, top quality lawyer.
Brenton is a life saver. He is definitely the ONLY attorney I would fully trust with handling my case. I messed up and got into some trouble unfortunately. Mistakes happen in life but i'm thankful that my mistakes didn't cost me my freedom thanks to Mr. Vincenzes.
