I was recently in OC and got into some trouble which was very unfortunate for me considering I carry a medical license. Alcohol can get the better of some from time to time. I read review after review on criminal attorney's in the area and found Frank to be a favorite. Well let me just say, I could have never made a better decision. Frank stood by my side the entire time over the course of my case. He fought hard and it definitely showed. I was in and out of court and only got community service when I know I deserved more. I have never had experience with lawyers in the past and was expecting the worst, NOT THE CASE. And hats off to Jen his secretary she made me feel so much better every time I called. Do not go to another lawyer you will not regret Frank, you are treated like family.

Frank did an excellent job in representing my DUI. He worked very comfortably with the Prosecutor and was personal friends with the presiding judge. The results of my trial were the best we could obtain, considering the circumstances. Thank you Frank for your help and support.

I was charged with possession of Marijuana/Hash in Ocean City, Maryland. I had over an ounce on my possession. I had passed out on the curb and was woken up by cops. I gave all my information to the cops. The cop then asked to search me and I said no. He then illegally searched me saying he could see a small jar through my basketball shorts. When I spoke with Frank about this, he made me feel very comfortable and he was very understanding and very confident. The day of my trail Frank just made a deal with the prosecutor and I got off with 20 hours of community service. I would definitely recommend Frank to anyone and everyone. Even though I had priors in the state that I live in. He still managed to work something out with the prosecutor and got me off. Frank is very well known around the whole court house and is also well known with the cops. Any kind of offense in Ocean City, Maryland. I would hire Frank to represent me in every case.

Words can't describe what Frank and Jennifer (legal assistant) have done for me as far as how my case was handled, to the genuine compassion that Frank offers as a lawyer. I'm from out of state, who vacations in OCMD every year and never knew how much trouble you can get in down there until one night of drinking landed me 7 charges (all misdemeanors, but still in my eyes bad charges that could (and should) have landed me in Snow Hill State because keep in mind: they have no county jail). Because I had Frank Benvenuto on my side, I left with only 1 minor charge. Of course I was nervous, but I was in frequent touch with both Frank and Jenn as they always made sure to talk to me to ensure me that things will work out. Compassionate is an understatement when referring to Frank, and his legal assistant as well, and the first time you speak to him, you will hear and feel how comfortable you will feel having him as your lawyer. The number of various situations he's handled in the up most righteous way, along with countless years of various experience and his unmeasurable knowledge is amazing. This is something you must keep in mind when considering who is the best all-around lawyer for your case and what this man brings to the table in undeniable. Because of him, I can continue with my life with what I did being a major lesson and a learning experience instead of a drinking mistake that halted and ruined my life temporarily and for years to come. I even had someone approach me after and told me that "the number of times I've been in this courtroom, I ain't ever seen anything like that". Frank's all-around, 100% the best lawyer to have on your side when you end up in trouble in Maryland. I couldn't be more blessed with the result of my case and for what he has done for my life.

During this summer, I was brought on several charges and I hired Frank. He was very responsive whenever I tried to reach him. He was able to get the more serious charges dropped and I was given probation before judgement for the more minor charges, which will allow me to expunge them in the future.

My son was arrested on a cocaine charge while in Ocean City, MD. We had no experience with this type of situation and had no legal contacts in Ocean City. We found Frank through this website. He and his assistant Jennifer were very helpful throughout the entire process. They were very responsive no matter how many questions we had. They genuinely cared about my son's welfare and were able to have his probation terminated much earlier than anticipated. We are very grateful for Frank's guidance.

Mr. Benvenuto is a very attentive and dedicated lawyer. I appreciated his honesty when speaking to me and he was always available whenever I called with questions. Mr. Benvenuto was able to drop some of my more serious charges and gave me the best outcome I could have asked for given my situation. Not only is he a hardworking attorney, but his price is reasonable and he offers high quality service. I would highly recommend Mr. Benvenuto.

My son was stopped for multiple traffic violations during a trip to a car show in Ocean City, Md. in October. I hired Frank Benvenuto based on his excellent reviews. I am very happy with the expert counsel Frank provided to my son and with the final results of the court hearing. My son was facing a license suspension which would have cost my son his job and would have made it very difficult for him to get to school. Frank helped my son avoid a license suspension , greatly reduced the fine and receive no points on his driving record. I highly recommend Frank Benvenuto. Believe what you read in his excellent reviews. I am a believer after seeing Frank in action.

I hired Frank based on the reviews I had found online and I was very pleased with the outcome. Frank has been in this business for 24 years and it certainly shows. He knows all of the judges in the area and he knows the states attorney well enough to know the right moves/plea to ensure you get the best outcome possible. I had a drunk night out and ended up in the wrong condo...got into a small altercation with owner based on me being confused and in the wrong condo unit. The police that arrived on the scene charged me with 3rd and 4th degree burglary and public endangerment. Through a preliminary hearing before court Frank was able to get the worst of the charges, the 3rd degree burglary charge, completely removed before court in order to keep the case in district court. A month later on the actual day of court, he got the second burglary charge dropped and on the intoxicated endangerment misdemeanor I received PBJ for a year. I was very pleased with this outcome and would highly recommend Frank to anyone who got into an alcohol related incident in OC! His assistant Jennifer is very pleasant and they both stay in contact with you via phone or email throughout the process. He charges a flat fee for district court and is not the cheapest guy in town but I believe his friendly demeanor with the states attorney and judges goes a long way to ensuring you receive a 'friendly' outcome.

Frank was able to structure a deal that supported the desired outcomes of the situation. Furthermore, he streamlined the process in a manner that required very little of my time. Both he and his staff provided timely communication in responses to all of my inquiries and concerns. Highly recommended.
