I live in New York and my son went on a vacation with his girlfriends family. They got into a situation and I was unable to get to Maryland with him to defend him. I contacted Frank Benvenuto and he was able to help us. Any question I had he and his team answered honestly. I never waited for a response when I had a question. They were the most down to earth pleasant people. I couldn't be more happy with the outcome of our case also. I put my trust in their team and was never let down. There were no hidden cost either. Frank Benvenuto was upfront with the possibility of all costs and he was also reasonable. Everything that pertained to our case was immediately e-mailed over. I would recommend Mr. Benvenuto to anybody that has a situation in Maryland. I hope one day I have the honor to meet him and his team..

Frank was extremely knowledgeable regarding the laws, judges and the expected outcome of our difficult case. I would highly recommend Frank and would definitely call him again if I needed an exceptional lawyer!! This was the only time I've hired a lawyer and was pleased with the outcome.

I needed representation for my minor son
whom found some trouble while visiting Ocean City,
after doing some research online I retained Mr. Benvenuto
and I could not be more satisfied with that decision !
Mr. Benvenuto provided professional, caring, skilled
guidance. He took the case to trial and secured a not
guilty verdict and we are extremely satisfied.

Frank Benvenuto was an overall great lawyer and succeeded in providing the best possible outcome for my case. He really does make sure he has everything possible to help you win your case! Not only is Frank honest , you can trust his opinion. He doesn't tell you what you want to hear for your money he tells you what you need to know. Frank is very experienced and knowledgable on what will help your case. Also well known in the community which is always helpful! Would recommend him to friends and family.

I highly recommend Frank! He is not only an experienced criminal lawyer but he is one of the most caring, professional attorneys you would ever come in contact with. Recently my son got into trouble in Ocean City, Maryland. We reside in Virginia (3 hours away). He decided to take a trip to Ocean City Maryland with a couple of so called buddies. They ended up being stopped and the only person charged with possession of Marijuana and intent to distribute was my son. As parents, this was our worst nightmare! We were fearful of my son going to jail and having a criminal record that would affect his future and career. I contacted several of the most highest rated attorneys including Frank and chose him because he understood as an attorney and parent what we were experiencing. The other Attorneys were pessimistic and non-caring from jump and stated that my son would get time. Frank made no promises but indicated that he would fight for my son to the end. He did just that and more! My son ended up with probation before judgement (PBJ). This was not an easy outcome because attorney Frank had to fight for my son when appearing before one of the toughest judges. He did an excellent job! The real blessing, experience, and professionalism of having attorney Frank came when the trial was over. He found out information that could have had a positive bearing on my son's settled case. Attorney Frank did not have to inform us of this information but as a moral and ethical Attorney he disclosed this information to us. He decided that he would continue to pursue an even better outcome for my son. He pursued and called us back with the great news! My son and the entire family commend Frank on this victory and will be forever grateful! If you want justice and one of the best attorneys, hire Frank Benvenuto!

We are from Pennsylvania and, while on vacation in Ocean City, my husband was charged with a DUI. Being from out-of-state, we were very unfamiliar with Maryland law and state court proceedings. Through a recommendation, we retained Frank as our attorney and he did an excellent job of representing my husband. Frank was very knowledgable and always kept us informed. He made himself available to us and even took his own personal time to meet with us over the weekend since we had to travel. Although we were very worried about the charges and my husband's record, Frank did everything in his power to provide my husband with the best possible outcome given the circumstances. Frank has years of experince under his belt, is extremely skilled in his areas of practice and was very personable and accomodating to our needs. We feel we could not have found better representaion and would recommend Frank to anyone seeking a qualified attorney in-state or out-of-state.

My son was charged with marijuana possession this past summer 2013 while staying the summer in Ocean City, MD. My son thought the charge was no big deal as the officer gave him a citation and he wasn't taken into custody. I explained to my son that even though he was given a citation (ticket) he was still charged with a crime. I immediately combed the internet searching for a defense attorney that had a knowledgeable background in drug possession cases with good outcomes for the cases on the Eastern Shore. All my searches kept coming up with Frank Benvenuto. I called Frank the following day (early am) and to my surprise he answered my call and spoke with me in great detail. I decided to retain Frank for my son's lawyer that day. My son met with Frank the following day and he explained to my son what he was facing regarding penalty and fines and possible jail time. My son's court date was last week and the outcome was good. My son received PBJ unsupervised for 1 year and a monetary fine. Thank you Frank :)

Frank was recommended by a lawyer friend from Pennsylvania. Frank is very well acquainted with the Wooster county court system. His vast knowledge and diligance helped me through a difficult legal proceeding. He took the time to explain every step throughout the process. He tirelessly worked for a favorable decision for me. He and his staff kept me calm and informed at all times. I would highly recommend Frank for legal matters.

I just moved to the area and unfortunately got a DUI. I researched online and Frank had great reviews so I gave him a call. He had me come in and took my case, which was my second DUI in my driving career. He laid out what I could be looking at and was honest of the penalties I could be facing which was scary but I also appreciated that he didn't give me false hope. Frank and his secretary were there for me and helping me through this case. They directed me what I should do to position myself to receive the best penalty that I could and helped me keep my license. They understood that I am not a bad person and that I made a mistake that I have definitely learned my lesson and will never do again. Frank fought for me and tried to work with the judge to get me the lightest penalty possible with what he had to work with which is all I could ask for. I got the sense that he cared what the outcome of my case and I wasn't just another case for him. I would highly recommend Frank to anyone!

Frank will take time in reviewing all the elements of your case as if it is the only case he is working on.
