i saw seth online after i got arrested around the baltimore area with drugs and paraphernalia. i talked to seth on phone before i actually agreed to hire. made me feel comfortable in how he was gonna handle my case. i was concerned with the price at first, but after everything was said and done it was worth every penny. in a nutshell i got caught red handed and thanks to seth i walked away with no fines no jail no probation. it was like he gave me a 2nd chance. so i would highly recommend seth to anyone around the baltimore,d.c area.
Having recently been incorrectly cited in a rather serious auto collision, I had a few choices regarding my traffic violations. Not understanding the magnitude of the charges, I started looking for an attorney. After contacting several, I received a call back from Price Benowitz LLP. A customer care agent listened to the details of my accident and the violations I was facing.The customer care agent was sympathetic and kind, but also understood the importance of retaining counsel. They felt strongly that Seth Okin would be best to handle my case. Having sent several requests to different law firms and individual attorneys, I didn’t place much credence in the expected return call within a few hours. I was shocked when Seth called within minutes to introduce himself.
At first it seems counter to what you know, considering an attorney from what appears to be a clearinghouse, but upon further research, I found the Price Benowitz website full of useful information. There is also a help assistant for instant chat and a large list of lawyers that specialize in all areas of law in D.C., Virginia and Maryland. There are reviews from past clients and a fantastic blog section written by attorneys who are part of Price Benowitz. This allowed me to get to know Price Benowitz and Seth a little better before I made my decision to work with them both. What I came to appreciate was that even though the concept of a client management team seemed cold and uncaring, it actually made it much easier for Seth to focus on the case, not the paperwork. The client manager is your first contact with Price Benowitz. They field your internet or phone request for an attorney, handle your client agreement and any questions you may have about what they offer. They know all of the attorneys, and their specialties, and can pair you accordingly. Price Benowitz LLP takes out the “ambulance chaser” ideal we have been taught about auto and personal injury attorneys; it breaths fresh life and credibility into this practice area of law. Price Benowitz LLP is dedicated to changing the way you hire an attorney.
After my initial conversation with Seth, he sent me his contact information via email and text. He reiterated Price Benowitz’ stance on a flat rate, start to finish, complete client care 24/7. The only thing I took issue with, was not meeting Seth before my court date. That may be a dated way of doing things, but it is still comforting to meet your attorney before you arrive for trial. Seth is understandably a busy attorney, he is definitely a rising star in the community, which may leave him a little stretched in regard to personalizing his client base. In the weeks after my accident and leading to my court date, I was terrified and occasionally felt Seth had forgotten about me because we had not spoken for some time. If you encounter any frustration working with Seth, I encourage you to call, email or text him and share your concerns. Seth is a great communicator. He is always willing to listen and wants you to understand the law and how it affects your case. Seth is honest and forthcoming. He will give you the best and worst case scenario and his expectation of the trial. Seth actively engages with other attorneys and court personnel. This allows him to have a good working relationship with the courts in Maryland and helps him tailor his defense based on who will be in the courtroom that day.
Seth is confident and smart. Driven and hungry, he looks for facts and will gather any and all information related to your case; right down to the weather report for the day. In my hearing, the judge praised Seth for “doing his homework.” It’s that attention to detail, the client, the court and ultimately his respect for the law, that helps Seth Okin win cases including mine.
Price Benowitz LLP is fortunate to have Seth Okin under their umbrella. If you can chose an attorney, ask for the best Price Benowitz has to offer, Seth Okin.
Seth made a really good impression on me during the initial consultation, he called me back immediately after I reached out to him, and I felt comfortable that he was familiar with this type of case. I was facing an allegation of Solicitation, and I needed an excellent attorney. We went to court, and the case was dismissed because of Seth's hard work. Seth seemed very well known in the court, and the best part is that he got my case heard first. He just seem to know everyone in Pg County. I was extremely happy with the case was dismissed, Seth did such a good job and overall it went pretty quick. I would recommend Seth Okin to anyone in need of a great criminal defense attorney.
I was really worried about a citation I received in Maryland, and my dad helped me look for a good attorney to fight this. I found Seth online, and only 20 minutes after reaching out to his office I got a call back from Mr. Okin. It was an amazing consult, he immediately started asking me about my achievements, my aspirations, and what we could do to fight this. We had a 45 minute conversation, which he clearly outlined what he was going to say to the judge, and what his court demeanor would be. He made everything really easy to understand, which of course is great. Seth accommodated communication for my dad and I, keeping us both in the loop. He recommended some things I do beforehand so everything would look great in front of the judge. He knew exactly what would happen, and made himself available for my needs. Seth just made it as easy as possible, he did everything I expected from a top notch attorney, and he did it well. My case resulted a NOT GUILTY verdict, no fines, nothing. He used some creative means, and really went the extra mile to take care of me. I think financially this was a great investment, and glad my record won’t be affected.
I was looking online for an attorney to help me out with a minor traffic case and I came across Seth Okin. I was very much concerned with my tickets as my insurance could go up by a ton. When I spoke to Seth I felt so much more comfortable and he assured be about the case. He was very confident. I felt like I could trust him. Seth and I attended court together in Greenbelt, MD and Seth got ¾ of my charges dismissed and even got my fine reduced. My license did not have any implications and Seth took care of everything for me. I would highly, recommend Seth and I have already recommended him to a couple friends. He makes you feel comfortable and he is very knowledgeable when it comes to law in Maryland. He is AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME.
I originally found Price Benowitz LLP by doing a quick google search. I called and spoke with the Client Manager. It was a very quick and easy process and was able to speak with Seth Okin the next day. He seemed very concerned about my situation and he allowed me to ask as many questions as I wanted. It was similar to talking to a friend, we had a connection right away. He was able to calm me down about the situation. Even though he was a little outside my price range, Seth was extremely helpful and directed me towards an attorney that could help me. I was extremely impressed by how caring and easy to talk to Seth was. Even though I couldn’t afford him, he really went the extra mile to help me. I liked that he was available to me by text and at odd hours.
I was very happy with the amount of help Mr.Seth gave me with my 4 serious citations i received a few months back. he is an amazing lawyer and some one who i felt i could trust in court with out me.during court Seth was able to prove that i was not guilty of all the charges.
Seth gave me comfort in knowing that everything is under control and for me to just continue to live life.
I received not guilty even though I had a previous charge in 2009 for the same offense. I would recommend him to anyone that cares about their rights and freedom.
Never have I ever had more trust for someone else than Seth Okin. He's an honest, intelligent, and experienced lawyer who feels like family. A genuine man with a passion for justice- Seth Russel Okin.
I called Seth 4 days before my trial and was happy that he took my case. My trial was for driving uninsured with a chance of jailtime and a big hefty fine. I gave him all the information I had to share with him and he told me everything I needed to know before going in. We won the case with me only paying court cost. He is very friendly, informative and I would recommend him to my family and friends.
