My ordeal started in April of 2013, when I was falsely accused of Indecency with a child. I originally hired another attorney in San Antonio who guided me through the first few months. I was happy with him but I wanted more so I did my research and Ben's name kept coming up. The Sifuentes law firm is exactly what I needed since I also needed employment guidance since I was a police officer of 19 years. The stakes were high and I was facing certain prison time if I didn't hire the right legal team. Knowing this I made the decision to hire Ben. It was a move that I did not regret! Since the beginning I knew this was another type of attorney. He reviewed the evidence over and over. Ben would assemble an entire staff on a Saturday and we would go over every shred of evidence. I can tell you Ben will work for you and he will out work the DA's office. Ben will be prepared! My ordeal ended on the third anniversay to the day with a "Not Guilty" verdict. It took the jury less than 15 minutes to render this decision. I can tell you Ben is like a family member now! If you need an attorney in Bexar County I would tell you to hire Ben!

In March 2015, I found myself in need of an attorney. I searched and searched but couldn't find anyone willing to help me fight a very powerful corporation. I was about to give up when a friend told me about Ben Sifuentes. I was very skeptical when I first walked into Ben's office. I had been to so many attorney's and none of them would entertain the idea of helping me.
By the time shook Bens hand and walked out of his office, I knew I was in THE best hands I could be in! Ben went to work on my civil case and I was amazed to see him work. Ben is extremely skilled and very experienced in both criminal and civil trials. While preparing to defend you, Ben will sit down with you and listen to you. Don't get offended if he turns his head away from you or leans back in a chair while you're talking to him. He is not ignoring you! Quite the contrary! Ben is playing out every scenario and thinking 10 steps ahead of those who you are fighting!
I can truly say Ben takes your best interest at heart and does not do things without thinking them over hundreds of times. He wants to make sure every angle is covered to give you the best defense imaginable. Ben is also tenacious, almost Pitbullesque. If you need an attorney to grab a hold and not let go, then I highly recommend Ben Sifuentes. I was terminated from my job on a Thursday, by Monday I was rehired. Ben will use every legal avenue he has and knows to defend you.
Well back to my story, I witnessed Ben tear apart a state witness in my civil hearing, without the witness even knowing what had happened lol! Needless to say, after my hearing, I was reinstated to my job with back pay which is rare to be awarded!
Ben, my family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts! You helped me breath again and now I can smile. You are a phenomenal attorney and person. I wish the best for you and all those blessed enough to have you represent them!

I'm in the military so i like and do things in orders, and Ben did just that. He is more than a lawyer he is also a friend that you need in and out of a court room. Ben treat you like one of his family member.

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.
