  • Seth J Price

    I have known Mr. Benowitz for over 20 years. I have sent numerous clients to him over the years and all have been extremely pleased with their representation and fees. He is one of the best court room advocates you could ask for and works tirelessly to make sure his clients get the absolute best defense. He is a great guy who is able to relate well to clients, prosecutors, clerks and judges.
