Our Practice Areas

Adult and Juvenile Virginia Criminal Defense

Read more about specific areas of Virginia criminal law here. Vincenzes Law offers legal services to those charged or under investigation in the Northern Virginia area.

Adult and Juvenile Virginia Traffic Defense

Moving violations are considered “infractions,” however, some moving offenses are actually criminal in nature and remain on an adult criminal record forever, EVEN IF FOUND NOT GUILTY (absent expungement). Even when it comes to non-criminal traffic infractions in Virginia (such as a non-reckless Virginia speeding ticket), the potential cost of a finding of guilt may include long-term increased insurance fees, fines, and other costs; especially if a driver’s license is suspended, revoked, or otherwise restricted.

Estate Planning

Proper planning is very important. Without a valid Will, Trust, or other device to legally distribute assets, problems may arise. A valid Will allows for the distribution assets described in the Will.

Without a valid Virginia Will, the Commonwealth of Virginia’s “intestacy” laws determine who takes particular types of property based on their status as a creditor, spouse or family relationship. Wills, however, must be probated. “Probate court” is public, meaning anyone can find out who has been left property or monetary sums. The probate process can be costly and time consuming, but having a valid Will is better than not having one at all.

Trusts allow for the private distribution of assets, meaning probate court can be avoided (when it comes to the assets in trust). Trusts also may be used for other purposes not necessarily related to the death of an individual (e.g., incapacity or special needs trusts for a disabled child).
