"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."

success as a trial lawyer

Won a jury trial against THE County Attorney. Felony DUI jury trial, that included cross-examining KBI expert witness, and cross-examining a surprise rebuttal witness.

Case theory: drinking occurred at Defendant’s residence, after he drove. Client remains felony free.


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:


During SFSTs, client clearly told officers that he had medical problems which would prevent him from performing the tests. Officer’s didn’t care, and arrested him based on his performance, no breath test. Based on a letter from the client’s doctor, which said there is no way client could perform the tests the State dismissed the felony. We plead to traffic infractions, unsupervised probation, and no jail time.


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.
