Criminal Defense

The Benson Law Firm represents clients in criminal cases ranging from misdemeanors to complex felony cases. You should never settle a case or plead until you have consulted an experienced criminal defense attorney.

A criminal charge can have long term consequences for you or your loved ones. It can cause you difficulty finding and keeping employment. It can deprive you of your driving privileges. These consequences must be minimized when possible.

Some criminal charges should be dismissed. An illegally conducted or administered traffic stop or search must be vigorously challenged. We personally speak with all witnesses, review police records, analyze video, take statements and fully prepare each case for the best possible resolution. In some cases the best resolution is a plea deal. In other cases, you need to be prepared to take your case to trial. Otherwise, the prosecutor has no incentive to offer you a fair plea.

You need an attorney you can trust and one that will fight for you. We will work vigorously to defend you. Call today for a free phone consultation.

Contact us if you have been convicted of any of the following crimes:

  • DUI/DWI, Driving Under the Influence
  • Drug Possession
  • White Collar Crimes
  • Assault, Battery
  • All Other Misdemeanors and Felonies
