  • Adam Charles Stone

    I had the opportunity to hear Attorney Benjamin speak on the topic of advocating for indigent defense experts at a conference in Cleveland, Ohio in 2012. At the time, he was the president of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. It was readily apparent in the course of his presentation that Attorney Benjamin is a proud, intelligent, aggressive, caring, and well-spoken advocate for his clients - rich and poor. He was inspiring, and at the same time practical. And, in the course of his time as NACDL president, his column in the organization's publication "The Champion" was a constant challenge to the practitioner to be better at what he or she did to better fight for and preserve his or her client's rights, liberties and freedom. I endorse Attorney Benjamin as a strong, experienced, and effective advocate for his clients.
