"I want to thank you for your service and give a 100% recommendation! Mr Rivera will not only give his heart and soul in the courtroom but he also does the little things like calling back the client in a timely manner. If you don't hire him for representation I would say you are making a huge mistake. Thank you and God bless you and your family Mr Rivera."Tony W.
"Vincent Rivera is the most caring lawyer around! After I got in trouble, I spoke with a few other criminal lawyers, but was reluctant to hire any of them because of their lack of understanding and compassion. After being referred to Vincent and our first conversation, I KNEW that he will take my case seriously while educating me on what to expect, putting my mind at ease at a time of great anxiety and fear!Darrick W.
He is super accessible, and went out of his way to follow up quickly via phone or text messages, keeping me updated on what's happening every step of the way. He is very personable and non-judgmental, and really takes time to get to know an individual. This and many other qualities makes for a great lawyer, and that's the type of lawyer Vincent Rivera is!!
Thank you for saving my life when I was down low and giving me a second chance in life! I will wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone in time of trouble or anyone who's looking for an effective, efficient lawyer who will get RESULTS! Thanks from the bottom of my heart, Vincent!"
"When I hired Vincent in a time of stress from court proceedings, I found him to be aggressive and knowledge on how to best handle issues and other matters of the court. He continued to keep me informed of case progress and status. He seemed concerned regarding my best interest and concerns about the case. In times of stress, you want someone who cares about your case and represents you aggressively. Look you already have enough stress in your life, you'll want someone who will actually fight for you in court and represent you adequately."Jeff K.

success as a trial lawyer
My client and a friend were standing outside a motel entrance. An officer, acting without any indication of criminal activity, conducted a “pedestrian check.” Soon multiple officers arrived, and unconstitutionally subjected the men to search after search after search, none of which produced any incriminating evidence. Eventually, the officers obtained “consent” to search their room where drugs were found.
After appealing the District Court’s ruling, the Kansas Court of Appeals agreed the eventual search of the motel room was unconstitutional. The Court’s opinion can be read at: http://www.kscourts.org/Cases-and-Opinions/opinions/CtApp/2013/20131213/108949.pdf
Represented a client who had 4 co-defendants, all co-defendants had council with 10+ years of experience. All codefendants plead to criminal charges. Noting the lack of evidence I encouraged my client to take the matter through prelim. After hearing the evidence, the Judge found there was no probable cause and the case was dismissed.
