Exceptional lawyer
From start to finish, Mr. Benton was exceptional. He was responsive, knowledgeable, and supportive. He went above and beyond my expectations, explaining each step of the legal process in laymen's terms and keeping me very well informed. I felt confident that he was looking out for my best interests when battling a large, and occasionally overwhelming, opponent. I would highly recommend Mr. Benton.

Auto accident injury
Because of the driver leaving the scene of the accident and the Covid 19 crisis my accident claim took a little longer than expected, but I am still recommending Jeff, and Charles. They are extremely friendly and will answer any questions.

Hi, First of all, I had no idea what to exspect had never been in this situation before. Jeff and his staff are absolutly awesome. They get results and do not stop until your takem care of to the best possible out come. In my experience. I am unsatisfied. Very pleased. He took the time to speak with me and listened to my concerns and helped me really feel comfortable about the whole process. Did not enjoy the wreck. I had been in or the physical therapy. But, I am thankful for Jeff Benton amd so glad to be counted as one of his clients. He is easy on the eyes as well as having a beautiful spirit about him. If I ever had to do it again. The Benton Law firm is the only way to go.

Jeff Restored my Faith in the Legal Profession
Even though lawyers are a totem of American life, I had avoided them out of fear and mistrust. But my husband was seriously injured in a car accident two years ago and I didn’t know which way to turn. A friend recommended giving Jeff Benton a call. I sounded desperate over the phone; but he responded to my anxiety by making a house call. Sitting at my dining room table, he listened with patience, then helped me work through my options. Being sharp, knowledgeable and effective, Jeff Benton was able to settle my case and the hospital bills within record time. I am grateful for this attorney’s caring professionalism and would recommend him to anyone facing a personal injury crisis.

Best. Law. Firm. Ever.
Best. Law. Firm. Ever. My husband and I were rear-ended at high speed in Hill Country, totaling our Miata and earning my husband a helicopter ride to the hospital due to a concussion. I also had to go to the emergency room to have a cut on my head stitched up. The wreck was clearly the other driver's fault, but the police report did not reflect that, and the other driver was not cited. When the insurance companies didn't want to play nice, we hired the Benton Law Firm to clean up the mess. Jeff and his staff got us a nice settlement, which took care of our medical bills, allowed us to replace our beloved Miata, and let us put the wreck behind us. We couldn't be happier with how they handled our case. I hope we're never in that situation again, but if we are, we know who to call.

One in a million lawyers!
I cannot recommend Jeff Benton highly enough. He treated me like family from the start, made sure I had the best of the best healthcare even though I had no health insurance. I was badly injured in an accident that resulted in a three level cervical fusion and Jeff was able to secure a settlement for me that was life changing. I will be forever grateful.

Mr. Benton represented me in a personal injury lawsuit that happened while I was traveling from NJ (my hometown) to Dallas. This was my first (and hopefully only) experience filing a lawsuit and I was unfamiliar with the entire process and didn't know what to expect. Mr. Benton was very professional, but genuinely empathetic, competent and most importantly, honest. He did not set false expectations and he was very patient, taking care to explain every step of the process to me so I was able to make informed decisions. I must say it was positively refreshing being able to trust him completely handling my case – especially since he was 2,000 miles away! Mr. Benton is a great, caring and compassionate attorney as is his staff. They are respectful and honest. They did not see my case as "just another case". I was kept at ease throughout the legal process and he really made it is painless as possible and obtained great results for me in an expedited time. Mr. Benton and his staff kept me well informed without overburdening me and were always available to answer questions or address issues promptly and in the friendliest manner possible. I would definitely recommend Jeff Benton’s Law Firm! Thank you thank you thank you Jeff!!!

Jeff Benton aka "The Strong Leg" fought for me and got me what I deserved! I was able to turn my light fender bender into a brand new Mercedes. God Bless the USA and God Bless Jeff Benton!
Posted by Adam | December 9, 2014
Thankful for Jeff!
From the start Jeff did a great job at ensuring my personal well-being was first and foremost. I'm a big, athletic guy, so when my accident kept me from working out or even tying my shoes, Jeff ensured I received the best medical attention possible to get me back on my feet. Once I was 100% again, then we got down to the business of making both of us whole on getting my medical bills paid. After it was all said and done, all of my bills were paid. I even got a settlement to help with the lost work wages! I'd refer any of my friends and family to Jeff.
