More than a lawyer a friend when your in need.
When my crew and I where involved in a work place flash fire we didn't know who to trust not even our employer. Benny was there every step of the way from begging to the end. He was always honest and never counseled us for his personal convenience or personal gain. It was always about us and our well being and what was best for us. On behalf of my family and I we thank Benny and appreciate his professionalism for all his help.

Benny Agosto Excellent Lawyer
Benny Agosto represented me and my family when my husband Ismael Tellez was killed in an accident. Mr. Benny was one of the few people who helped our family. He always gave us moral support, keeping us updated with the case. With each legal situation that involved my family and the memory of my husband, Mr. Agosto was always there along our side to assist us in any way possible. He is a very excellent lawyer full with hope and perseverance that has led my family and I in our time of need. Mr. Benny is a excellent lawyer and a complete gentleman.

Very Professional and Very Thorough
Benny and his firm made me feel very relaxed and assured. They did an outstanding job at getting my family and I the results we were hoping for. Hopefully I never need a personal injury attorney again but if I did, there is no one else I would hire.

My recommendation
I have been represented by Benny Agosto in two cases, both resulting in excellent outcomes and exceeding my expectations. The last time I worked with Benny was a special one due to the fact that I recommended his services to 14 of my work colleagues. They all took my advice with some reservations, but after the results of their cases, they all were very pleased and satisfied and thankful for the recommendation. These are some of the reasons I would not hesitate to use his services again if needed.

Auto Accident
It was wonderful having Benny Agosto for a lawyer. He was very professional and explained everything perfectly. He got us the maximum amount of money and was a very nice person. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him or use him again.

Changed my life!
The absolute worst thing that could happen to anyone is sexual assault. Anyone! I was afraid to say anything for fear that my voice wouldn't be heard. Turns out, I was right. The local PD ignored my report that took so much for me to do to begin with. Many people are assaulted and those people are never the same again. I can honestly say that includes me. I was referred to Benny Agosto over a year after my assault. My first attorney wasn't brave enough to stand up to the wealthy opposition. Benny never wavered. Benny and Shari, his assistant literally held my hand through the toughest legal battle of my life. Benny never gave up on me and with his professionalism, knowledge and strength, the opposition was FORCED to comply. I am a single mother with a 23 year old mentally disabled son. I must work to provide for both of us for the duration of our lives. When something renders a person like me unable to function, leave my home or even eat, it is life threatening. My whole experience was life threatening for my son and me. I am forever grateful for Benny Agosto and his firm for assuring that some kind of justice was served. I only wish that the Galveston PD had done their jobs as well. Now that it's over, my son and I can move on. With God's blessings, we will be able to put our lives back together. Thank God for people like Mr. Agosto and his firm. Sometimes the only justice we can get may be a nod, a few dollars or maybe just, "Yes, this shouldn't have happened and we admit that" plus a couple hundred grand.

Golf Cart Injury
When my sister was injured from being thrown from a golf cart our family was devastated . A combination of factors contributed to her injury all of which were caused by third parties, After much family discussion we decided to engage a law firm to represent her interests. We spent quite a while researching firms in our area and every time we got suggestions from our experts Abraham Watkins was always on the list. Based on this information we called Abraham Watkins and were directed to one of their partners, Benny Agosto. Benny met with us that same day and we were very impressed with his professionalism and his kind heart. We engaged Benny and his firm right on the spot. Through out the legal proceedings Benny kept us well informed, was very responsive and proved his capabilities . We ultimately settled the case and could not have asked for better representation. Benny is a "classy" guy and our family will always be thankful . JFE

Run away!!
He is been handling my case, pushing for 5 years. Before I hired him he said he would be ready for trial if we happened to not settle but he would make the case go fast. Well, he's been on the case for years and he just started working on it, but he always tells me he is ready for trial, which he isn't. I've talked to other attorneys about his behavior, and they have told me he is forcing me to take a settlement or to fire him so he can file a lean against my case so he would just get paid without working on it. He is very capable and knowledgeable, but he doesn't care about his clients one bit, but he will convince you otherwise. His firm is a wholesale business model; they take as many cases as they can and with the intention to settle them yes or yes once they take your case, it doesnt matter if you haven't recovered, if you are still struggling do to your injuries, all he will tell you, it's to take the settlement. He will not discuss your medical condition nor your struggles, he doesn't care. I stand by my words, since I've dealt with him personally as a client for years. He is a lot of bad things, to which I can't even mention and it's not even an insult, but this pages won't let you use adjectives to describe a person, because they won't post your review. You can't be specific, you have to be very generic. I've had to change my review 5 times and it just doesn't go through. Same thing in Google, they mostly keep good reviews and the bad ones are hidden or doesn't go through. So, whatever I'm saying here, multiply it by 4. Do not come here, he is the president of his firms and this is how he handles himself, imagine his employees. Also, I need a second back surgery and he won't provide an LOP unless I sign him a paper stating I will only do as he tells me to, a blank check, handing him authority over myself as his client. And he doesn't talk to me for months and blames me for it. They pay for their good reviews and report the bad ones so that Google hides them and with the very very strict Google rules and this page as well, they reject or hide 95% of bad reviews, leaving them with a really high good rating.
