Joseph DiBenedetto has been an invaluable asset to my law practice. Having worked and consulted with Mr. DiBenedetto on several matters I can without hesitation endorse him as a skilled and knowledgeable practitioner of criminal law. Being a personal injury attorney I have no business representing clients on criminal matters. On multiple occasions I have confidently referred my clients, and referrals from clients, to Mr. DiBenedetto regarding complex and serious criminal matters. Each time the feedback from the person was the same, they were grateful that they were referred to Mr. DiBenedetto and his firm.
