Very personable, always returned calls promptly, and extremely knowledgeable. Ameer is a former Manhattan DA that secured me a conditional discharge on a Class E felony. I would highly recommend Ameer to family and friends.

Ameer is an excellent attorney. He is very knowledgeable, and skilled. My case was a double felony, not only was the outcome very positive he took the time to help me recover my personal property well after the conclusion of my case. He is also friendly!

Mr. Benno was superb! I highly recommend him to assist you with any legal matter. In my case, he cross examined the police officer with incredible skill and passion and this was the definitely the reason my case was dismissed. He was not going to end his questioning until he got the results he wanted and he did! I am thrilled. Other reasons why I would recommend him is that I believe he is an honest and hard-working attorney. He is genuine and down to earth. He is one of the good guys and will fight for you.

I have been both Co-counsel and a client of Ameer Benno. You cannot find a more dedicated lawyer anywhere. Ameer's knowledge of civil rights law has been a source of information that has been invaluable to me over the years. Anyone who has Ameer Benno as his lawyer should consider himself lucky.

He is a kind person who cares about his clients. I have had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Benno before and after I became an attorney. As a colleague, Mr. Benno has raised the bar in candor and integrity. He is willing to do the right thing, irrespective of scrutiny, costs or politics. He is a principled and exceptionally skilled litigator. For these reasons, I highly recommend Mr. Benno as an attorney and counselor for most any litigation.

I was facing a very scary charge that could have lost me my job and ultimately made me loose everything I have worked so very hard for. Mr. Benno got me out of everything and because of him I'm now back to work. He was so kind and sure of himself he made me believe in myself as well. I appreciate his willingness to help me and his knowledge of the law and what I was facing. If you ever need a lawyer that won't make you feel like their taking advantage of you, he's the one. I'm sold and he's mine for life. Thanks again Mr. Benno!!!! For everything. I look forward to out next case together!

I called Mr. Benno for consultation concerning a possible criminal appeal stemming from a felony case in NY County Supreme Court. I'm scheduled for a jury trial and wanted to consult with an appellate lawyer in advance. I called Mr. Benno after seeing his profile on Avvo and got a call back almost instantly. I spoke with him for quite some length pertaining to his experience, details and thoughts of the case, and appellate practice. He was very genuine, open-minded, attentive and friendly. It was easy to communicate with him and he was responsive to my concerns. Moreover, I was comfortable speaking with him and felt he could be trusted and had my best interest at heart. He felt like an old friend, not an attorney.
I also inquired out about his background as a lawyer. He's a former Manhattan DA with extensive experience in criminal and appellate work and has handled complex criminal appeals for the government and defendants alike; but now, he uses this experience strictly to benefit his clients'. He has worked on both sides of the playing field and can evaluate obstacles and legal maneuvers necessary to get the best outcomes. Additionally, he was an adjunct professor at New York Law School and taught countless students on legal reasoning, writing and advocacy.
Needless to say, I enjoyed my conversation with him and gained invaluable insight. I know if I was to ever need a criminal or appellate lawyer, which I hope I don't, I would not hesitate to retain Mr. Benno. I can tell you after speaking with him, reading other client reviews and reviewing his credentials that he is a top-notch defender for anyone in need of a criminal or appellate lawyer. I truly hope I do not need the services of Mr. Benno for an appeal, but if I do, I know exactly who to call.

Ameer Benno pulled off a miracle with my case, which involved the NYCMTA, the NYPD and the state. I was wrongfully stopped by police in the subway, handcuffed and humiliated. Benno stepped in with a wealth of knowledge regarding civil rights cases like mine. He was supportive, honest to me as his client, and very accommodating. He was able to get the city to settle out of court with us and I was very satisfied with the result. I already recommended him to friends, strongly suggesting to them that this is one lawyer who can deliver.
