Please call me to discuss your case. I am an experienced, board certified criminal law specialist.
I am board certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Speciliazation. http://www.tbls.org/Directory/Attorney.aspx. That means I'm one of very few attorneys who can say "I specialize in criminal law." My practice is primarily state and federal criminal law and appeals.
I grew up in the small southern Arizona border city of Douglas, Arizona. I joined the U.S. Army and served in as a U.S. Army Ranger in the 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment at Fort Lewis, Washington and then with the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR) at Fort Campbell Kentucky.
After the military, I went to law school and started out doing plaintiff's legal malpractice, suing other attorneys/ lawyers who had committed some form of fraud or breached a fiduciary duty to their clients. While with that firm, I second chaired two million dollar plus cases, one of which took over 5 weeks to try.
I subsequently moved to El Paso, Texas where I was an Assistant District Attorney and served in the office's "Family Violence Unit," where I tried over 20 domestic violence or Assault Causes Bodily Injury (AFV) trials to a jury.
As of June 1, 2010, I opened the Benjamin Law Firm and handle state and federal criminal, civil and appeal cases, and I am going to use my experience to benefit you, my next client.
