    • I recommend Benjamin Okin.
    • I hired Benjamin 1-6 months ago.
    • Benjamin handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I cannot recommend Benjamin Okin enough, he is very knowledgable, professional, and honest. He was able to clearly explain the charges filed against me, and the basic timeline and process. Because I live out of town Mr. Okin was able to attend all of my hearings and handle the case completely so I did not have to miss work and travel back and forth. He was absolutely indispensable. In the end Mr. Okin succeeded in having the DA dismiss the charges against me. For those seeking a DUI / DWI lawyer I would highly recommend Benjamin Okin.

    • I recommend Benjamin Okin.
    • I hired Benjamin 6-12 months ago.
    • Benjamin handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    Extremely professional and diligent attorney. He made me feel at ease through my legal affairs and never hesitates to take time out of his schedule to meet or explain things further. I immediately felt comfortable talking to him and would absolutely recommend Ben to anyone. My case was rather straightforward, however I did appreciate the fact that after reviewing all evidence Ben was able to write a plea and have it met in a timely manner.

    • I recommend Benjamin Okin.
    • I hired Benjamin 1-3 years ago.
    • Benjamin handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    I have... unfortunately... worked with dozens of Lawyers all over California. However, Mr. Okin is not only one of the most honest and reliable but dedicated and extremely knowledgeable. I have seen him time and time again go above and beyond for me and all of his clients. He was easy to contact when I was having concerns about my case and made multiple jail visits to talk unlike most other lawyers I have worked with.

    He is a true asset to the Criminal Defense community and I have referred many people to his office.

    • I recommend Benjamin Okin.
    • I hired Benjamin more than 3 years ago.
    • Benjamin handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    The public defender refused to file a motion about the cop illegally stopping me in my car because she said it was the cops word against mine and I would lose. I got Ben to represent me and he located a mechanic who said it was impossible for the cop to see what she said she saw me do. Judge threw the case out! I was happy about that but more happy that Ben was willing to fight for me.

    • I hired Benjamin more than 3 years ago.
    • Benjamin handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I interviewed several attorneys and hired Mr. Okin because he was honest and straight forward. He did not try to use scare tactics like some other attorneys to get me to hire him. He kept me well informed and returned my phone calls promptly. It was apparent when he walked into court that he had the everyone's respect. My case was plea bargained such that after a short period of time, my case was outright dismissed. I highly doubt any other attorney could have achieved that result.
