my current lawyer
I was very fortunate to get Jayson as my lawyer. I went to jail on my original charge but jason was able to get a stay of execution and I'm currently fighting for my freedom from the streets. He has been more than a lawyer to me thru this experience. I would not only recommend him I would not use anyone else . He has kept me out of jail for over 18 months while we fight my now reopened case.

My amazing lawyer, Jason Benzaken
Jason Benzaken, stuck with me for almost 7 years fighting a battle that went all the way to the supreme court ( Troy J. SCHOELLER vs. BOARD OF REGISTRATION OF FUNERAL DIRECTORS AND EMBALMERS. SJC-10980. October 26, 2012. ). He believed in me and fought the good fight with me. He was always reliable, and it gave me confidence to know that he had my back through everything. He researched 100's of cases and backed all his creative arguments with solid legal facts. An amazing attorney and a good friend.

"Jason Benzaken is one of the smartest lawyer that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. His intelligence and legal acumen are what really separate him from other lawyers. He is also an extremely creative advocate, who is able to see a theory of defense where most practitioners just see hopelessness. Most importantly, Mr. Benzaken never stops fighting for his clients. I have seen Attorney Benzaken pull victory after victory from the jaws of defeat through his tenacity and legal skill. He is smart, creative, able and tireless as a lawyer and advocate for his clients."
