Vincent R. Maher grew up in the Downtown Vallejo area right here in Solano County. He is a 1991 graduate of Saint Patrick/Saint Vincent High School. During his younger years growing up in Vallejo, Vincent was exposed early to the criminal justice system by way of the crime in his own neighborhood which sparked his interest in pursuing law. He went on to graduate in Criminology from Fresno State University in 1995, and then earned his law degree from Empire Law School in 1999.
He won his first-ever jury trial in a Three Strikes case less than a year after becoming a lawyer. During the course of his career, Mr. Maher has tried over 100 jury trials.
He has also argued numerous appeals and filed countless Motions to Suppress as well as Writs of Mandate in the First District Court of Appeals in San Francisco. Many of his cases have even been profiled in the media. He is a true trial lawyer, passionate attorney, and relentless advocate for the criminally accused. Mr. Maher truly loves what he does and enjoys being an attorney because he is able to help others champion their cause during their time of need. Many lawyers will call themselves trial lawyers, and yet they have never tried a single case. This is an important fact because if your case settles you will get a better result with a lawyer who is known to go to trial than one who is known not to.
