My kid had a traffic citation. We took Mr. Bennett's advice and signed up for class before we had to appear in court. We were in court less than 15 minutes, and the case was dismissed. It pays to get an attorney, and Mr. Matthew Bennett is the best I've found, hands down! I will recommend him to anyone I know who needs a great lawyer!

Matthew Bennett is a fantastic lawyer!! I didn’t know what to expect, I just knew we needed a good lawyer who would work aggressively on my daughter’s behalf. I have to say he has exceeded all of my expectations. We had court this week and I think I am still in shock at the outcome. My daughter had a traffic stop with multiple (5) citations. From every meeting from the first to the last, Matthew walked us through our case, what to expect, and what my daughter needed to do before court. We put our faith and trust in Matthew, and he delivered 1000%! He was ready to go to trial to argue the case, but ended up negotiating a plea agreement that satisfied all parties. My daughter pled guilty to one of the five citations and received a fine with minimal (one day) probation! This was such a relief! I knew with so many citations, it was unlikely if not impossible to get them all dismissed. My daughter is only 18, so it was such a relief that Matthew was able to find a solution that will not totally ruin her life, but give her an opportunity to pursue her dreams. After all, everyone makes mistakes, especially in youth. I was also happy that my daughter did not shy away from accepting responsibility for her actions. Court is very intimidating, even when you haven’t done anything wrong. Had she not followed Matthew’s advice, the outcome likely would have ended badly. It was fascinating watching Matthew work his magic in court. Not only did Matthew defend my daughter, he convinced the state’s witness to testify on her behalf to her cooperation, truthfulness, and openness during her police interview!
Great job, Matthew!! I will be recommending you to anyone who needs a top shelf attorney to be their champion! You rock!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for defending my daughter!

Attorney Bennett was wonderful. He was extremely reassuring but also very honest with me about my case. I had 2 charges he got 1one dismissed and the other to a very minimal fine. I would recommend Mr. Bennett to anyone I know. I found Mr. Bennett and all the people at his firm completely professional and well worth the reasonable fees. He worked hard to get the plea agreement to something that would work for me; I could tell that was important to him. He took his time with me and did not push me to accept something I was not happy with. I could tell he is very well respected in court by his peers, the DA and Judge. If I ever need a lawyer again, I will use Mr. Bennett and his firm, there would be no other choice.

Matthew Bennett is nothing short of a lifesaver. I had gotten into my first accident where drugs and alcohol was involved. I was a nervous wreck afterwards and had no clue of what was to come my way. I thought my life was over and I would never get be able to land future jobs coming out of college. Matthew was recommended to me from a friend and he was very responsive and reassuring from the second we started talking. He is very confident and knowledge which lifted all of the stress and anxiety from my back. This was my first offense and he was empathetic through the entire process. I have no idea what I would do or where I would be without his guidance. I am so grateful for his help and support. I highly recommend him!

Mr. Bennett came highly recommended by a friend and did nothing but exceed my expectations. He is professional, timely and highly knowledgable. I found him to be highly realistic yet understanding and would definitely recommend him, in the future.

Matthew is a pleasure to work with. He really has helped me over the past 3 years and would definitely recommend him to anyone of my closest friends and relatives. He is very understanding and empathetic to your situation, but always completely upfront concerning possible outcomes, so that you never have to assume anything. ~ J. Lowe

Icy night, totaled car, no other drivers involved. Police administer roadside Breathalyzer - which read 0.00 Blood Alcohol Content (yes, zero). I was hauled into police station very shaken from the accident. Detained for another breathalyzer administered at station 0.00 (zero again). Cop is out for blood literally/figuratively so I allow a blood test to clear me. While I’m there, I speak without reserve and don’t even think to call a lawyer because I know I’ve done absolutely nothing wrong. After being treated like a criminal, I thought they would release me with an apology based on blood results…. Nope. I am released that day, but with 2 tickets 1. DUI 2. Failure to reduce speed in dangerous driving conditions. Cop says blood test will be sent off to the lab they don’t have rapid results and I’d better have the prescription for the (non-narcotic, prescribed) headache medicine I mentioned I had taken that day. I am holding 2 tickets, 1. DUI 2. Failure to reduce speed in dangerous driving conditions. I need a good attorney!
The first call to Atty. Matthew Bennett was the start to my relief. In person, Matthew was very down to earth, yet I knew by his demeanor and no hesitation confident answers he was a brilliant attorney who was going to take care of me. Police report came back a month later with very serious accusations, “Determined driver was on PCP” (this is an extremely mind altering illicit drug - horse tranquilizer!). ALSO the cop, notated failure on almost every walking & touch your nose, etc. sobriety test. I panic, knowing I am a target for upping the cops conviction percentage. Matthew, not only was available by text but called me to calm me down and assure me that the cop would have to prove it. Matthew carefully communicated with the States attorney, obtained all necessary documentation and was well prepared to fight at trial. The blood test came in 6 months after the accident which was the labs delay ~ no trace of any alcohol or illegal anything. Within a day of the blood test results Matthew had the DUI dismissed! Can you imagine my relief??? Even with the clear blood test, the cop could have tried to pursue conviction with his bogus report. On court day, for the lesser ticket and only remaining accusation, Matthew very professionally spoke with the States Attorney and approached the Judges bench. Matthew went with exactly the right angle and very tactfully and effectively provided evidence for the Judge to forgive Failure to Reduce Speed in Dangerous Driving Conditions. The judge granted a 1 month PBJ. (forgiveness after one month ~ no charges.) WOW and WOW! With such a bad luck situation, it turns out I couldn’t possibly have been luckier than having Matthew Bennett as my attorney!

Through the most turbulent and troublesome time in my life, Mr. Bennett was there to assist 100%. He was genuine, friendly, courteous, empathetic, motivational, truthful, knowledgeable, supportive, patient, and understanding. When I had no one else to turn to, no one else to trust, I walked into Mr. Bennett's office and from that moment believed that I had someone on my side. I have a second chance to do the right thing and live a productive and happy life. I was glad to have Mr. Bennett by my side through this tumultuous journey...
