Professional beyond compare
I have worked with several attorneys in the South Florida area and I must admit that Monica Benitez by far is the best I have ever had. She is professional beyond compare and was extremely attentive to my needs. She described all of my legal options without being condescending or dismissive. She truly does care about her clients legal well-being. I had both, traffic and criminal cases and she was knowledgeable in all aspects and her communication skills were beyond reproach. I am glad to note that she was not the typical 9-5 lawyer just trying to close a case and collect a fee. She was always available when I had a question to ask and I hope to work with her again if I have legal needs in the future.

Thank you for doing such a great job representing me!
Dear Monica, I want to say that I very much appreciated everything you had done for me beginning with that first sad day when you took the time to hear my story. I am certain a male lawyer would not have cared or taken the time. Most importantly Thank you for having my case and all charges dismissed . I value you and would highly recommend your services. Thanks again.

Send her your tickets!
Ms. Benitez's take charge no nonsense attitude carries over into her practice. She resolves issues timely and takes the stress away from you when handling your tickets. She has an extensive criminal defense background which inspires immediate trust. I recommend her for all criminal defense matters.

turning impossible to possible is what she does best!
If you're looking for a lawyer who knows every inch of the law then you're definitely in luck as Monica Benitez not only practices law ,but she gets the job done! I have had the special privalage of seeing her in action and whenever she touches the courtroom it's like everything and everyone stops and she instantly becomes the center of attention. in addition to her magical prowess, she has the ability and capabilities to get the results most lawyers can only dream of and that's what sets her apart from other lawyers. I have been through two lawyers ,but it wasn't until i found out about Monica that I had my victory in court,and let me just say I had been going back and forth to court for over a year. I said all that to say this! Don't hesitate to make the phone call because with Monica your victory is right around the corner, and she will treat you like you're family and fight for you just like one!

excellence in tropical law
So, one day a found my self in a little trouble, suddenly and for no good reason i got a felony and two misdemeanor charges to deal with, all at once. I needed a lawyer and right away, yicks!..Right away i saw the advertisement picture of Monica Benitez on CNN with a wicked look of focus and set determination, so i called for an appointment. When i got to her office she was very patient, letting me talk myself out and getting down to the serious business of council and representation by her, someone with prosecution and defence experience. Attaining Monica as my criminal defence attorney was a good move and i finally i could get a little rest at night. As time went by i was kept up to date, calls were always returned and i knew that my lawyer was doing research and covering my case in the best and most complete way possible which was very reassuring. Going into court with freedom and comforts in the balance is no fun and no joke at all. Going into court in team with Monica Benitez means being well prepared and planning on the overall win. I recommend her to anyone, she has my full compliments. So if you get in real trouble, I suggest you call Monica. i hope your day got a little better reading this.
