Simply the best in what they do!

This Law Office provided legal services to my nephew, which included counseling, advocacy, and court representations. The Principal Attorney, Dr. Vincents and Associate Attorney, Ms. Ayoola are simply the best in what they do! Their professionalism, responsiveness, diligence, and quality of service are quite commendable.

Choosing A Lawyer

Once a client determines that the lawyer he or she is considering is competent in the area of law concerned, the next most important consideration is ensuring that the lawyer cares about what happens to the litigant or defendant and their matter.

At OBVLaw, we take tremendous pride in our abilities. Whenever we accept a file, we are always confident that the heart we bring to the file and the competencies we have garnered over the years will stand our clients in good stead and enhance chances of a desired outcome. Above all, we continually keep our eyes on what would be the best outcome for our clients.

To assist us in the quest for results, we do ask our criminal clients to be candid with us. It is our job to fashion a defence after we have studied the facts. Clients should avoid telling us only a version of the story that fits the defence they want us to present.

For our family clients, we ask for candour as well. We also ask that the client pay careful attention to our recommendations and directions as to strategy before providing their instructions.
