Steven was recommended to me by a relative in law enforcement. He was professional, easy to contact, and was very reassuring. He is confident in his ability to win your case and made me feel very at ease. He explained the entire legal process to me and I never felt I was left in the dark. I would recommend him to any family member or friend.

Hiring an attorney can be tricky, because you don't know them and you are so very anxious, about your case. Attorney Steven Vaillancourt, was recommended to me by a friend or else I would never have found him. He was professional and calm when I was not, and his demenior put me at ease. My case went exactly as he said it would including the verdict, on my very first consolation.
I would recommend him to my friends and family if ever they needed help. I was so very grateful to have him on my side and I know you will be too.

I made the mistake of going with another attorney at first based on the recommendation of a friend who works for the state as a DA. The recommended gentleman wasn't straight forward about anything, especially his rates. I didn't feel like I was being listened to. At the magistrate hearing he could not have looked more disinterested. He encouraged me to go to AA meetings and get a paper signed to prove I was there (had to create my own form. This is something normally only done after being ordered to by a judge). His plan was to beg for mercy rather than prove I was innocent. Just for the sake of inconsistency I guess, he also tried to say the accident might have been the result of medications (even though I told him I started taking the meds as the result of stress and anxiety caused by the legal system, IE after the accident). That gentleman charged me a $1,000 fee to get things started and said everything up to the magistrate hearing would only cost about $500. When I told him after the magistrate hearing that I would no longer be needing his services he suddenly decided that all of the work he had done up to that point was worth $1,500 so we'll just call it even. I cut my losses.
I write out that long story to provide contrast with Steve Vallaincourt. Right from the beginning Steve was incredibly honest. I told him I was going to AA. He asked me if I was an alcoholic. I said no. He said "then why are you going to AA?" He had a flat rate and he stuck to it, even after the case dragged on much longer than expected. He answered every question I had along the way. He showed a caring interest in myself and my family. And in the end we won. I can't imagine finding a better attorney when dealing with these accusations.

I can, without any hesitation, provide my strongest endorsement to Attorney Vaillancourt. I have been familiar with him and many of his clients for many years, and know him to be as capable a practitioner as can be found. Attorney Vaillancourt is utterly without mixed motivations, he stands firmly and completely in the corner of his clients.
