I highly recommend the Law Offices Of Catarina Benitez
I was in need of legal services and was referred to Catarina Benitez. I found her to be friendly, knowledgeable and "real". She was very accessible and professional and she conveyed the law process in an easily understandable manner. Through her efforts I was able to come to a favorable closure to my situation. Should I need legal representation in the future I will definitely be calling her again.

Forclosure defense she is horriable
Since feb 2018 she will find a way to charge the hell out of you with no results what so ever in federal court. Her pleading are the worse i have seen in a long time. Absolutely horriable i have nothing but facts on top of facts with affidavits to prove much fraud. She wont get anything in by a dead line, she wont represent you she probably make a deal with the defendents and leavr her client out to dry. She even try to take crrdit for galskis case but whay she did was get the whole case dismissed. The only rrason why galski had a chance is went to appeal with different attorney. I asked her many times during our time since febuary i stated to her you do not rrpresent me very well at all. You do not have any fight for your client. She was in it to take as much from me get the case dismissed because she will not do pleadings or deadlines well at all. After sometime she will ask do you know anyone that go go to sale date and short the pre tender lender, all this she states after you give her thousand and thousands of dollars. She is in it for the money not for the client for wrongful forclosure, forclosure defense. If you are looking for an attorney for foclosure defense to take your money and have your case dismissed hire catarina office. Absolutely disgusting job , no fight , and will ask you to take a modification agreement 1.5 times more than your original payment from your pre tender lender debt collector servicer. Im here to fight so that is what we will do until these corrupt people banks, servicer, judges, and attorneys are held accountble period. Ron
