I was recently involved with a criminal issue and Chris really helped out. When I was basically harassed by police after the incident he even showed up to a traffic stop I was involved in after I called him. He was there in 10 minutes. When we went to court he was prepared and argued diligently on my behalf. I've also used him for traffic violations and recommend him to all my friends. Without his guidance I probably would not have gotten off so easy. Thanks Chris!

Chris was fantastic, he always kept me informed of everything going on. He was very professional and would definitely use him again and recommend him to others.

I was arrested in December of last year and while looking for representation I stumbled upon Mr. Benevento. After a quick consultation I hired him on the spot. I immediately felt I could trust him and he did nothing to shake that over the next few months up to and through my legal proceedings. He was always professional and punctual and kept me well informed throughout the process (letter of the law, possible pleas and outcomes etc.).
He was available virtually any time of day and returned every email or phone call I had very promptly when he wasn't. Reliable, professional, and affordable. Give Chris a call.

I had recently been pulled over for a four point traffic violation and was unsure of where to turn for legal assistance. If you've ever received a ticket before, the first thing that happens is that you receive a bunch of mailers from lawyers soliciting your business. I ignored these advertisements and turned to a local lawyer (Mr. Benevento) in my area. Upon our first meeting, he was professional and well informed. His prices were reasonable and above all, I felt that he was genuinely concerned about the outcome of my case more so than the compensation he would receive in exchange for his representation.
On the day of court, I was a bit on edge, so I made sure to be at the municipal building an entire hour early. Surprisingly, I found that Mr. Benevento had beaten me there and was already waiting to meet with the prosecutor. He appeared to be very prepared and had details of my driving history as well as additional information concerning this particular occurrence; which made me feel more comfortable and relaxed that everything was under control. Mr. Benevento went in to speak with the prosecutor and their conversation lasted quite a while (I'm sure he was lobbying hard because my driving history is definitely not as favorable as most).
Long story short, Mr. Benevento exited the room and explained that they were able to reach an agreement. Let's just say that calling it favorable would be an understatement! We were called first above all other lawyers and I not only avoided all DMV points, but also paid about half of what I was charged for similar violations in the past. This savings alone covered almost all of the legal fees that I paid to him. I could not have imagined a better outcome and I'm positive it is because of Mr. Benevento's professionalism and preparedness.
Overall, I would recommend Mr. Benevento to anyone that wants a lawyer that does his research and prepares to win! I will definitely be seeking his expertise the next time I run into a traffic issue. Thanks again for everything Mr. Benevento!!
