About me

Nothing is more satisfying than hearing the words, "Not guilty," which is why I thoroughly prepare for every trial.  I look at the facts: the motives of witnesses, the credibility of witnesses, the scene of events, reports of law enforcement and experts.  I pick apart the prosecution's case.  Preparation and research is key to success.  Call me.

  • Patrick L. Hancock

    I have known Ben Sifuentes for over 25 years. Ben served as a mentor to me as a young trial lawyer. I will always remember his dedication and tenacity to trial preparation. He has an outstanding trial record. I will always be indebted to him for his patience and the time we spent together on trial strategy. Ben is a lawyer and scholar who is generous with his time and experience to assist younger lawyers learning their craft. I endorse this lawyer.
