Vincent John Fuller (June 21, 1931 – July 26, 2006) was an American lawyer best known for defending John Hinckley Jr., Jimmy Hoffa and Mike Tyson. [1]

Born in Ossining, New York, Fuller graduated from Williams College in 1952, then served two years as an officer in the United States Navy. He graduated from Georgetown Law School in 1956 and was the second lawyer hired by Edward Bennett Williams at Williams & Connolly in 1967.
