If there be any doubt in your mind about selecting Mark Bennett to defend you against a legal assault mounted by the federal, state or local judicial systems against your life, liberty or happiness---cast them aside. If you are reading this, you are very likely under such assault. Just know there is only one goal to this assault, and that is to prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law, regardless of guilt or innocence or extenuating circumstance. It is their job. And they like it. And the only thing standing between you and a conviction is your defense attorney, upon whom your fate will utterly depend, so you had better make the right choice.
I can personally attest that they don’t come any better than Mark Bennett. Period. He is the best of the best. A lawyer’s lawyer, with compassion, integrity, and a deeply intuitive situational intelligence that enables him to create highly effective strategies and tactics to win your case; he can think within the box, outside the box, and even upend the box if necessary---whatever the situation requires. Not only does he keep up with the very latest developments in federal, state, and local legal standards, practices and laws, his cutting edge commentaries and articles on a wide variety of evolving legal issues help to shape and inform the attitudes and opinions of innumerable practicing lawyers and judges, both locally and nationally. On at least one occasion while in court, he actually had to educate the judge and prosecutor of a change in the law, which as a matter of course led to yet another dismissal. This is a defense attorney that you want at your side.
My case involved a false accusation and a wrongful arrest, personally exponentiated by a sensationalized flurry of local and internet journalism which threatened to destroy not only my reputation and livelihood, but my career as well. I had no experience in legal matters whatsoever. I had a month before my initial court date, and so I spent that time doing in-depth research on legal defense options. When I came across Mark Bennett’s website, it was the tenor and tone that struck me first. Second were the stellar reviews from his previous clients. I continued doing research, but after a few days, I kept coming back to Mark. I knew he was the one. I contacted him, and he accepted my case. For which I am and shall remain immensely grateful.
Mark wasted no time. After filling out the big picture, he then identified the specific areas that needed clarification and investigation. He spared no expense or effort, using his investigative staff, even to the point of subpoenaing phone records. One of the great things about Mark is that he includes you in the loop. He informs you of what he is doing and what he finds, and answers any and all questions you may have about even the most incidental of details, whether factual or speculative. But most of all, he is tolerant and patient with your questions, regardless of how dumb or irrelevant. In a word---he is kind. And eminently personable. A rigorous, no-nonsense professional who exercises kindness. It’s a lovely thing to find. Especially when your life is hanging in the balance.
The court dates went on for months, and at each instance, he gathered more and more information and moved the ball further downfield. And then finally, when he uncovered exactly where the critical point to the entire affair lay, he pressed the DA into action. And the result of the DA’s action? Dismissal. Utter and unequivocal. Just like that. It was unbelievable---I was a free man once again.
After the dismissal, we filed and were granted an expunction order (the complete clearing and destruction of all records pertaining to the case). Tabula rasa. It was the complete legal restoration of my civic status. But the situation wasn’t quite over yet.
Suffice to say that Mark’s representation was indeed---stellar.
