In the last twenty years, Vincent Tucci has personally tried close to 100 cases to jury trials with a majority of those jury trials having a successful outcome for the client in all Southern California courts with an emphasis in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego Counties. In 2017, Mr. Tucci tried a .18/.18 PAS with a .18/.19 EC-IR II in the Metropolitan Courthouse against the nation's top DUI prosecutor in the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office and obtained a NOT GUILTY verdict for his client who was a commercial license holder. That victory saved his client's job and life. This trial lasted eleven days. Also, in 2017, Mr. Tucci tried a DUI case in Pomona for another commercial driver. We obtained a hung jury with 9 of the 12 jurors voting not guilty. This trial lasted 10 days. DA wouldn't dismiss the case. However, they did offer us the deal we were seeking but only after trial. I told the DA that was the pretrial offer. We want a dismissal. They rejected that offer so the case was reset for trial. We invited the court to dismiss the case and the court declined our invitation. The court and the prosecutor then scheduled the case beyond the statutory time violating our client's constitutional speedy trial rights. We filed our motion and the entire case was dismissed. Lastly, in 2017 in the Downey Superior Court, we obtained a not guilty for our client who crashed her car and allegedly refused to take a chemical test. All twelve jurors felt as we did that our client was not guilty of driving under the influence. This trial lasted 6 days. Vincent Tucci has represented citizens against the DMV in excess of several thousand times.
Our firm enjoys a reputation of surpassing excellence in Southern California for quality trial skills and aggressive representation provided on behalf of our clients. Braden & Tucci concentrates and limits our practice to representing citizens standing accused by the government of DUI both in court & at the DMV.
