  • Roger T. Yokubaitis

    I endorse this attorney without qualification whatsoever. Bob Bennett has been a standout, experienced and highly successful attorney in many fields of the law, and I particularly respect and admire Bob's steadfastness to securing the release from prison those convicts that never have had a fair trial and, even more, those convicts that clearly or even certainly Bob is able to prove, not merely not guilty, but unquestionable actual innocence by proving that the State flat convicted the wrong and completely innocent person, thereby releasing from prison a totally innocent person that has served many years or even decades in prison. Were I ever to need an attorney, Bob Bennett is the very first one I would contact.
