This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Family Assault (misdemeanor) / Retaliation (felony) =Dismissed!
Handled two very difficult cases for me with excellent results. I was facing huge criminal charges by bitter ex wife. Joe & Spence are excellent lawyers, very knowledgeable, well respected and experienced in Criminal Law. It took a while to get the cases dismissed (which is up to DA) but they got it done, i was not interested in any offers from the state and I was willing to take it to trial anytime to prove my innocence. I am incredibly grateful and thankful that all of this mess is behind me and now i can continue with my life.

DWi 2nd Offense, possession of a controlled substance
I recently hired Mr Vinas to handle my criminal defense on the two cases listed above. During the process he was always respectful and treated me with dignity. He was on top of the case at all times and was actually able to have both cases dismissed. I would recommend his services to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation.
