About me

I am a Partner at Fernandez Benjamin, PLLC, a firm specializing in Foreclosure defense, Bankruptcy, Real Estate matters, Real Estate Closings, Personal Injury, and other Civil Litigation matters. I am a former bank attorney, so I bring a unique perspective to defense work, especially foreclosure defense.  At the firm,  I am currently working on Foreclosure Defense, Bankruptcy, Real Estate matters, Real Estate Closings, Landlord/Tenant Law, and Consumer Debt Collection defense.  Our firm also handles all loss mitigation options, including short sales and loan modifications. I work very hard for our clients and believe it is my duty to aggressively represent each and every client as I would a family member. 


I met my friend and Partner at Stetson Law, where we shared very similar interests and outlooks on life. We both love sports, are Christians, and are passionate about the law. We are aggressive young attorneys willing to go the extra mile for our clients. We have outstanding credentials, positive results, and believe our clients should always receive personal and professional representation.


If you have any questions and  would like to speak with me, please give me a call. You can also e-mail me at which is preferred. I will respond back to you within 24 hours.



Jon Benjamin, Esq.
