Criminal Law AttorneyA few words from our Virginia Criminal Law Attorney, Brenton D. Vincenzes

Lawyers are prohibited from guaranteeing results, because it is considered unethical (and for good reason).

What is the next best thing?

Just ask the consumers…the people who have looked for a criminal law attorney in or around in recent months. Most criminal law attorneys would probably agree that many ask for specific case results, examples, and experiences with similar charges.

The first thing I tell them is this:

past case results should not be used to predict future case results, because no two cases are alike.

Some lawyers do not share case results. Others use some of their best results to advertise their services using direct mail (for the record, we do not ever send direct mail (junk). Of course, no criminal law attorney wins every case, and that is why you do not see more lawyers listing unfiltered case result lists. While we are proud of our results, there is no such thing as perfection, yet Mr. Vincenzes understands the value in past case results when they are listed in full — from the consumer and potential client’s perspective.

So far this month, Brenton D. Vincenzes finalized:
  • 16 clients
  • 18 charges
  • 3 jurisdictions

When facing a criminal charge, regardless of the seriousness, it is best to ask legal counsel what the charge means to you, your future, and your family, in the unfortunate but possible event that you are convicted.

Not only that, but you also should apprise yourself of the knowledge of what a worst-case scenario entails. From there, a logical discussion can follow, touching on probabilities, defenses, and ways one might mitigate penalties and/or improve the odds the case will be resolved in a way that meets certain needs or goals…a few come to mind:

  • to qualify or maintain a security clearance
  • to qualify for or maintain financial aid for college tuition
  • to avoid jail time
  • to avoid a suspended driving privileges
  • to avoid deportation
  • to reach an outcome that preserves the ability to expunge the arrest record; and, many more
