I don't even know where to begin....I hired a local lawyer over 5 years ago for my 18 yr old son, who was told take the plea as would not get any better. He did not even show up for court to sign the plea. Anyhow, my son was placed on 8 yrs probation with the plea. After almost 4 years probation completed we hired Mark to have the case dismissed. After the case was dismissed, the DA decided to reopen and charge him with a different title for the same crime. We were shocked. I called Mark back and hired him. Even though he lives in Houston and us in Midland we knew we wanted Mark. Midland has a buddy system with the lawyers, DA, etc. and we have no trust or faith in them. After a total of 5 years of hell, we went to court with Mark at our side, and left the court room with a jury of NOT Guilty Verdict. We cannot say enough good things about him. We feel he is part of our family and has changed our sons life along with all of our lives. We are forever grateful, and recommend others to hire Mark. You truly do get what you pay for. He is a smart, caring, and honest man. There are no words to show our appreciation for him. We love him!!

I recently turned to Mr. Bennett for help with a First Amendment appeal being litigated in federal court. He was enormously helpful not only in bringing clarity to the content of the argument, but in putting together a serious legal document for the judges. I highly recommend his services without hesitation.

WOW ! It's hard to believe it's finally over! I'm so very happy, you've no idea! Thank you for handling my final expunction order. My case was tried and acquitted over 35 years ago, but I have “carried” the burden of the case with me ever since.
I feel like that chapter of my life is finally behind me and I no longer have to hide or walk around with a copy of my disposition paper in my purse. Neither do I have to dread when a potential employer asks “is there anything else that I should know before we start processing your application.”
Thank you for giving me life back, I wish I had known you 35 years ago, I wish the lawyer who originally handled my case would have suggested I get an expunction order. I hope that I have expressed and conveyed how grateful I truly am.
Thank you Mr. Bennett

I was wrongly accused of a horrible felony crime. Family influenced me to stick with a court appointed attorney and I quickly realized that is NOT a smart avenue to take. My girlfriend started helping me look for an attorney and came upon Mark Bennett. We met with him and immediately knew he was the answer we were looking for. We met with him and immediately felt like my case wasn't hopeless. He is very good at reading people and situations, very knowledgable, and genuinely cares about you. In court, he is a force to be recogned with. I would not want to have him against me. He was always 2 steps ahead of my accusers , picked apart their made up stories and ridiculous behavior and showed the jury what was really going on. In the end he saved my life and I'm here now to be able to tell any of you in a similar situation to sit down with Mark before you make any decisions and if you want a fighting chance you should hire him and you won't be sorry you did.

Mark Bennett is a highly talented attorney who is gifted with perception and intuition. He has a knack for seeing the big picture, but also is very detail oriented. Mark is a highly respected attorney, and a leader in his field. He works tirelessly for his clients, and makes himself available and accessible, when needed. If you are in the position of retaining legal counsel, do not do so without consulting with Mark first. We are very happy with the results he obtained for us, in a very complicated legal matter. We are convinced that no other attorney could have obtained these results. Should we ever be faced with a similar decision again, we would retain Mark Bennett without hesitation.

If you are looking for a brilliant, determined, and respectful defense attorney who will fight for you hire Mark Bennett. I was charged with a Misdemeanor Class B for Disorderly Conduct with a firearm. My first meeting at Mark's office gave me hope (and Mark even bought me lunch!). His professionalism and demeanor have a way of making you feel that you have the right defense attorney. He is smart, and doesn’t think like a former prosecuting attorney. In court, you see those run-of-the-mill attorneys who merely plea everything out and never go to trial. Mark is the opposite. He told me “I’ll take this case to trial by jury”. Mark, by the way, is excellent at reading people. He has a YouTube video discussing voir dire which I would encourage you to watch (Search YouTube for: Houston Criminal Defense Lawyer Mark Bennett Teaches Jury Selection). Mark helped me understand the entire process, and how we would get through this. His calm and confident manner helped me to be patient with the process. When he comes in and talks to the prosecuting team and approaches the judge, I noticed how they all respected him and he commands their attention in a positive way. After our trial date was reset month after month, I kept my focus on the goal set by Mark - to get the case dismissed or win the trial. I believed if I did everything he said and maintained a clean record, we could win. After a full year, we finally had the trial date set for October 6 and Mark worked diligently to get me prepared for the witness stand. He taught me how to approach cross examination without falling into the DA’s traps. I had the best surprise on my trial day when Mark walked up to me and said that the case was going to be dismissed! I walked out of that court house a new person, confident, and ready to get my life back on track. Within two days, I was back in a job interview with a global company with a strong Houston presence. I know I will remember Mark the rest of my life, as the person who treated me with respect and dignity at a time when I needed that the most. Thank you, Mark Bennett!

Mark is an exceptional attorney. If you have judicial problem, talk to Mark. You will be in safe hands.
He will patiently listen to you and make you feel that he is always there for you to help. He is the best in class and has a big heart. Recently I was charged with 2 cases in the Houston court. The crimes were performed in Harris County in Houston .It was shocking as I had never been to Harris County or Houston in my life. I had warrants against me so I could have been arrested. To add a challenge I had to go to out of the country in 2 weeks.I did not know what to do. I wanted someone who can listen my version and then provide me consultation for the next steps. I talked to 7-8 attorneys based on their reviews from Avvo.com. Their individual sites boasted about free consultation for 30 min -1 hr. But when I called them few of them demanded that they needed to be engaged and paid before they could provide any consultation. Others gave suggestion which looked very similar, “Pay me, get a bail by posting bond and then appear in Houston court on court date”. That meant expense and time.
When I talked to Mark, he had very unique suggestion. He said he will try to have cases dismissed without me even going to Houston. It looked unbelievable but I agreed. He shared the cases details with me. According to the case the 2 crimes were done by a physiotherapist at physiotherapy clinic at Huston. In contrast, I am an IT manager and never trained on physiotherapy. He was very quick to understand that it was the case of mistaken identity. He did a research to find that there is another guy with my name in Houston who had degree in physiotherapist and worked in the same clinic when crime was done. He even tasked his investigators to visit to physiotherapy clinic and collected all the required details (Passport, DL, Certificates etc) about that guy. He then contacted Chief, all the ADAs and investigators to inform that case was filed against the wrong guy and shared the details on the right guy.
Mark is highly respected attorney in the state of Texas and everyone including judges respects him. And I witnessed that. In few days, 2 cases against me were dismissed without me appearing in the court or even going to Houston. It would not have been possible if I did not have Mark representing me.
In turn, Mark just asked me to pay him for 1 hr of his time. In reality Mark had spent much more time on this case. This fee was nothing in compared to what other attorneys demanded. For Mark it could be one of his easiest cases but in reality he saved the life of an innocent. The case which looked complicated in the beginning, Mark made it look so simple. Believe me, Mark is one of the attorneys whom you can trust.
I am writing this review to thank him. This is the least I could do. Thank You Mark and God bless you!
Me and my family will be always grateful to you.

In case you are in one of the worst situations in your life (that's why you probably reading this), please try to make it as "pleasant" as it could possibly be by contacting Mark Bennett.
All I can say is thank you Mark.

I hired Mark over a year ago to defend me against an alleged domestic assault. He gave me up front pricing for the case as well as the expungement and never changed the price even though it took longer than expected. He was always there for court and occasionally asked the judge if I could be excused from appearing to save me from lost time at work. He presented the offers made by the DA but gave me confidence that I could beat the charge. He found evidence that supported my case. He made recommendations that made me victorious. I could not be more happy with his services and will recommend him to my family and friends. His professionalism and efficient work has inspired me to go to law school in 2016.

I hired mark two years ago when I was arrested for felony theft. I was never so scared in my life. From the moment I first met mark I knew and you will to , he's not just any run the mill lawyer. You should see the amount of respect and presence he has in the courtroom. He knows his stuff. He got my felony reduced to a misdemeanor deferred . Now mind you I had overwhelming evidence against me and he still got it reduced. I received 16 months probation and I was done in 8. Just recently I filed petition for non discloser and was in court again. Mark never charged me for representing me again and SCHOOLED not only the DA but the judge as well on the laws ! the DA was trying to say I had to wait 2 years before I could petition the court for non discloser and the judge agreed! I thought that was it until the super lawyer came to save the day and proceeded to tell them BOTH what the law was! I can i just tell you I have never seen a judge and a DA look so stupid in my whole life! You will not regret hiring mark Bennett as your lawyer! If you are not convinced go talk to him , you will not regret it !
