Frank Benvenuto

About me

Serving clients on the Delmarva Peninsula for OVER 21 years in Worcester, Wicomico, Somerset, Dorchester, and Talbot Counties.


Frank Benvenuto, P.A. Attorney at Law, a skilled "driving while intoxicated" (DWI) defense attorney. Additionally, if you have been caught in possession of a CDS - I CAN HELP. I am knowledgable.and have handled hundreds of drug cases in 20 years. See my website drug page for details. As a native of Ocean City, Attorney Benvenuto understands the peculiarities of Maryland and Worcester County. For example, did you know that Worcester is the only county in Maryland with two district courts? Where you are charged, be it the circuit or district court, will make a difference in your case. The prosecutor will make a difference in your case. And your selection of a criminal defense lawyer will make a difference in your case. I have lived in this area my entire life. I have worked with (and against) the various District Attorneys' offices and know the characteristics of the local courts and judges. It's this kind of experience that may help get the charges against you reduced, plead down, or thrown out completely. Call my office at 410-641-2999 or 443-783-2451 after hours or use the "Email Lawyer" button by my photo to email me so I can get to work on your legal problem right away.
