Because we all need lawyers we can trust.A federal criminal defense lawyer you can trust.
I defend people on trial and appeal in state and federal court in Houston, Texas, and anywhere else I am needed.
I also defend the First Amendment in civil court by defending defamation (libel and slander actions).
I am board-certified in criminal law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and AV-Rated by Martindale Hubbell.
Please check out my website for information, including video interviews with me. Also, please read my blog. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call and tell me how I can help you.

Mark Bennett is a great lawyer. He is an excellent mentor and a brillant advocate. He helped me with a couple of cases and his work saved a defendant from life in prison. Truly relentless and a force to be reckoned with.

Mark Bennett is the lawyer's lawyer. His command of the law, language, and creativity are inspirational. He is the mentor for all lawyers, new and experienced. I had the privilege of sitting second with him in a very difficult and draining trial involving a sexual allegation. He was tenacious, calm, and a rock for his client. He embodies professionalism and elicits huge respect in a courtroom. He is the lawyer I strive to be in the years to come. I endorse this lawyer.
