Reckless Driving

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.

Possession of Marijuana

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.

Reckless Driving

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!

Reckless Driving

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.

Traffic Infraction (Speeding)

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.

Public Intoxication

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.

Confidential Criminal Charge

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.

Confidential Criminal Charge

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.

rent handled my case in a efficient and reliable manner. I had two charges for traffic court and he ended up doing a great job with the prosecutor getting me basically a small fine and court costs! Excellent at keeping me in the loop and returning my calls/emails in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend again!

Confidential Criminal Charge

Mr. Vincenzes was absolutely exceptional to work with. He was very flexible and understanding. He was available day and night, and made it very easy to contact him. His attention to detail, determination, and empathy were key. I am very pleased with his representation and the results of my case. It was a pleasure working with Mr. Vincenzes. I would not hesitate in contacting Mr. Vincenzes should I ever need legal services again.

Reckless Driving

The prosecutor refused to offer a plea deal on general reckless driving despite having a weak case. Mr. Vincenzes accepted the prosecutors and was ready to argue the case in its merit. In the end, I was not convicted of reckless driving (a Class 1 misdemeanor, which could have possibly cost me my job); the judge found me guilty of improper driving (a driving infraction)

Had a consulation with Mr. Vincenzes the first time I called.  I was impressed that I got through to him so quickly.  He gave me excellent advice regarding my traffic violation and did not try to sell me his business because the citation was minimal and I could essentially represent myself.  How many attornies in Northern Virginia would do this??  Thank you so much!  I will be calling again if needed!!

Reckless Driving

Panicked over a reckless driving ticket I received in VA, I searched frantically for an attorney who could take my case. Upon reading Mr. Vincenzes reviews and looking through his previous cases, I decided to send him a message one evening. He was incredibly prompt in responding and called me the very next day. He gave me a free consultation, which included everything I would need to do to help my case. His fee was very reasonable and over the next month, he handled my case efficiently, effectively and promptly. He was incredibly helpful and communicative, especially considering I was an out-of-state resident. He was available both over the phone and online and always responsive. On the day of my court date, Mr. Vincenzes showed up on time and talked to me briefly about how everything would happen. He helped lower my anxieties significantly and when my case was called, he was professional and appealing (not to mention very nice and personable to me) and in the end, my reckless driving ticket for 89 in a 65 was DISMISSED! I couldn’t have been happier with my representation and I would definitely employ his services in the future if I needed something. Thanks Brent!

Reckless Driving

I had a speed violation that I didn’t realize VA handled so differently from other states. After talking to people who had their license suspended or even had to serve a little time in Fairfax Co for other traffic incidents that are also considered class 1 misdemeanors, I looked for a lawyer. Originally I chose him by his ratings and my price range. Very reasonable payment plan. He was young but he told me where to go, what to do, and how to prepare myself. In the end my speed was reduced, no suspension, small fine and no criminal charge hanging over my head. Awesome guy.

Reckless Driving

Mr. Vincenzes did an excellent job in representing me for reckless driving charge. I really liked the fact that I could communicate with him through the client portal. Of course you never remember to ask all the questions you need to, so it was great to be able to send a quick message to Mr. Vincenzes. He always provided a response to my questions in a timely manner. I definitely would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a good criminal defense/traffic lawyer in Virginia.
