Being charged with a crime is one of the most stressful and difficult experiences for a defendant and his or her family.  From the stress of dealing with police to the prospect of serving jail time there is simply nothing that compares to facing a criminal or serious traffic charge.  In addition, these cases often arise unexpectedly and carry an immediate financial burden.  Most people can ill afford to miss days of work and being charged with a crime can lead to loss of employment or inability for career advancement.  Paying fines and potentially losing your driver's license can also have severe financial impacts.  Benjamin understands the severity of being charged with a crime and is also sensitive to the unexpected nature in the way these cases arise.  As a result he is always willing to discuss potential payment plans to decrease the financial burden a defendant may face.  Prior to making a decision about retaining a lawyer Benjamin is available to explain all aspects of the case including defenses and potential consequences.  Do not hesitate to contact Benjamin even if you have a question that may seem trivial.

Client Reviews
"I am writing this letter to thank you for doing such a great job in my case. If it were not for what you did I would still be in jail right now. My family and I are very grateful I have a second chance at life now, and if it wouldn't be like this if you were not so good at what you do. Thank you again Benjamin!" T.S.

"Thank you for all the time and effort that you put into defending my case. You were willing to fight for me when nobody else would believe my story, and you did not back down from the prosecutor. Another lawyer would have urged me to plead guilty, but you were willing to fight for me, and in the end justice was served. I appreciate everything you did and wish you all the best." Fred D.
