Best DUI lawyer in the Lehigh Valley area.
Absolutely the best money ever spent. I received a DUI, highest rate first offense, and a driving without a license early last year. This has been a very scary time for me, as I am not from the area and have had nothing but grief result from this incident. Somehow Mr. Benner pulled through and got me a plea bargain that reduced and dismissed my charges. I can safely say that he is well worth the money and I would recommend him to anyone.

Could be better
When I first met with him for a consulation he gave me the feeling that he was going to be on top of things and keep things moving, so I hired him and he rarely returns my phone calls or e-mails. The secretarys at his office are rude and not personable when they answer the phone. I called the office one day, and the secretary asked who was calling, so I said my name and she responds " Oh, i'll have to take a message." as if there is a list of people who to forward calls and who not to... When I do actually get Garett Benner on the phone I feel as if he is rushing me off the phone. He does not keep me updated unless I call and e-mail him 20 times a week.

Garret Benner is not a good lawyer. At least for custody cases. My mother paid Mr. Benner $1,500 to spend a total of 3 to 4 hours with me including one PFA hearing and one custody conference. Not only did he NOT put up a fight after I initially sought custodyou of my kids he had the nerve to tell me I'm lucky I'm getting what I am getting. He put me so far in a hole that I could not get out of till this point. Made agreements that were not in the best interest of my kids or myself. My mother and I were wrong to give this man a chance or even pay him. But we live and we learn. Good luck trying to contact him during a case

EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED! Stay far away from this guy!
We retained Garrett to be our attorney after a bus driver hit our son ON VIDEO. Mr. Benner dragged the case out telling us that the school district was settling and he was negotiating with the school attorney. He never returned emails or phone calls even when we made an appointment with his secretary to have a phone conference. Once the case was past the statute of limitations for filing a suit against the school district, he let us know that the district no longer wanted to settle. Big surprise. And here's the kicker! He never told us that his partner's brother was married to the principal of the middle school that our son attended in the district that we're suing! Can anyone spell "CONFLICT OF INTEREST"? Needless to say, we've moved onto another attorney. Word to the wise, "Dont't use this guy! A deceitful man and a complete waste of time".

Please stay away from this guy. I retained Mr.Benner to do my divorce and it has been a nightmare since day one. He never answers calls or emails never returns calls or emails simply put you can never get a hold of this guy. Every time you call the office you get his secretary saying that he's not available or in a meeting. There aren't that many meetings in the world! Mr. Benner is not aggressive at all, and does not seem knowledgeable in his field at all. I felt like I had no representation I am currently seeking a new attorney to represent me because if I stay with this guy I will get railroaded and I told him that face-to-face!!! Take my advice and go elsewhere

very disappointed with this lawyer
I also was very dissatisfied with Mr. Benner. After a month of no progress on my case, I asked for my retainer back. He refunded me only half and charged me $250 for 2 phone calls that were missed anyway. I was very disappointed and would not recommend him to anyone.

Don't do it!! Stay away from this lawyer !!!
I would never ever recommend Garett Benner we are currently working with him and I'd do anything to not be working with him anymore . He was very informative when we first met promised us he'd stay informed , keep in contact and many other things. Well all was a lie!!! He never answers call or emails, refuses to explain anything to us an just is slow and unprofessional . We are already dealing with a tough situation and to top it off now I have someone representing me who does and seems to know nothing . The only reason I did get a call back last week after 17 calls in and 5 emails was because I threatened to file a complaint to the board about him. Please just stay away take advice from us and the other reviews ! I looking for advice how to switch lawyers.

Not a good lawyer
Garrett did my divorce, he advertise divorce done in 3 months (uncontested) he took 14 months to get my divorce done after constant phone calls and messages he sometimes never return. He is quick to bill you and collect his money but he is very slow to get your case done in a Timely manner. My divorce was finalized exactly 18 days before he call me to inform me. I actually call the court 2 days after my divorce was granted and went there and get my divorce decree, then call Garrett and pretend I don't have any info and asked him about my divorce.He told me he would call the court and check and call me right back he never did. If he did he would have found out my divorce was granted. He never call me back until 16 days later. To top it off I went to pick up my divorce decree and he had it open up on the counter for every one to see was not in an envelope I could just walk in and picked it up without anyone seeing me. Very, very unprofessional.

Never use again!
This lawyer is slow and never responds to e-mails. He's expensive and not worth a penny. Don't bother! I was told the divorce papers would be in the mail in a week....waited 3 weeks. Was told separation agreement would be done in a week...Yeah right....Was told this would all be done quickly, in a few weeks since not much to fight over....I should have saved my money and just did on line no fault.
