Amazing Counsel when I needed it!
I was in court after being “left at the alter” by my original attorney. I already paid him a retainer, however he explained an unfortunate tragedy and could not travel. I was caught in a situation where I needed counsel. I needed someone who could explain my situation to the DA and get my case dismissed. I didn’t want to miss work, and I wanted this tragic legal inconvenience handled. As I sat patiently and waited to speak to the judge and explain why my prior attorney missed my court date I noticed one particular lawyer extremely active in his integration with the entire courtroom and procedures. At that time I did not approach the gentleman. I waited to be called, immediately explained my situation, and requested time to seek new counsel. Request granted. I walked out. That was the absolute last time I saw the inside of the courtroom. Attorney Scarfe completely alleviated the entire process. I truly appreciate the research and diligence Mr. Scarfe provided to resolve my legal issue in that crucial time of need.

Criminal record expungement
Attorney Benjamin Scarfe cleared my criminal record! What I imagined would be a long and fought out process (especially as I'm overseas), was made easy with Mr. Scarfe's quick communication and diligence. The expungement was completed in no time!

Beyond the norm.
To whomever it may concern, Benjamin Scarfe is a fantastic choice as a lawyer and you can't ask for a more involved and caring person to defend you from the Psychotic viewpoint of law enforcement that everyone is guilty before innocent. Ben is an individual that understands the negative effect on clients' lives that unfortunately have to deal with law enforcement and the courts. He keeps you informed and at ease and having that type of repoire is very important when you're in this situation. In my case, I'd have had nobody else to travel the long road of justice with. Despite institutionalized harassment by local law enforcement and the courts I finally beat this wicked system with basic honesty and truth. However, the only reason that truth and honesty gets a hearing? A good lawyer like Ben Scarfe not allowing the system to railroad or treat you as already guilty. Trust me, the first thought of everyone in the courts is to get you to admit guilt or allow them to decide. Don't do that. Fight for justice with a great lawyer like Ben Scarfe. Sincerely, W.E. Llamas.

Benjamin Scarfe saved my career twice best lawyer for yuba Sutter area
Benjamin has taken two cases for me he also helped me with other problems he wasn't even paid for. I had a suspected DUI in 2012 Ben fought all year won the DMV so I kept my license.Mr Scarfe dissected my case to the point it was thrown out I blew a .21 and walked Ben worked very hard for me and helped me feel comfortable minimizing stress throughout the case. Without been my career would have been over. Recently Ben took a hit and run case and turned another career killer into a minor infraction that will not even go on my record after driving school. Ben is a very nice knowledgeable gentleman he is a spartan warrior in the courtroom and a good friend out of the courtroom I could write 3 pages on Ben and why he is the best lawyer I have ever seen. I called other lawyers in the area I knew right away after talking to Ben he was the one thanks for everything Ben I luv ya man lol sincerely .....jax teller....

By far the best out there
By far the best decision I have ever made. So so greatful for mr Scarfe and everything he did. Not only did he treat me like a friend/family, he fought his butt off for me for a entire year until he got my case dismissed. If you want someone who is not only very affordable, but someone who is down to earth, treats u like a friend/family go see mr Scarfe. I can't thank you enough!

Top notch legal help
Ben was not only a crucial part of my case, but a friend to guide me through the process. He was very knowledgable, provided great recommendations as far as our course of action, and fought very hard for me. We were able to avoid trial and take the most ideal plea bargain possible for my case. He was always polite, well dressed, and punctual. I highly recommend Mr. Scarfe to anyone looking for representation.

If you want the best, someone who won't stop fighting for you, and someone who treats you like family hire Ben....enough said.
If your looking for an attorney who will fight for you, then Ben is that attorney. He is professional, persistent, and represents you with a passion you only see from family or friends. I had two DUI's and was pulled over during a DUI checkpoint. I was looking at losing my license for 10 years, losingy job, and everything I had worked so hard for. Ben didn't stop until he had pulled the pas logs, requested all records and saw what was going on. Turns out the machine wasn't calerbrated right, the records were false, and there were just too many discrepancies. Ben then took my case in front of the judge and made these cops and their department look like a joke. The cops were so upset, they tried lying on the stand but the judge saw right through them. I was the only one represented by Ben that day, and I was the only one to win my case, 5 cases heard before mine, all found guilty. I will forever be thankful for Ben's help, and will forever consider him family. If your in trouble and need someone to help, call Ben and know you have someone working hard on your side.....Ricky T.

Ideal lawyer
In NorCal, resources are very few and many counties appear to engage in kangaroo court tactics. Benjamin Scarfe helped dismiss charges that could have potentially sent me away for life. In doing so, he also kept me fully informed of what the potential outcome could be, how to prepare in the meantime and put me at ease with the next steps to be taken, if the worst outcome played out. He brought out inconsistencies, lack of evidence and appeared to make the prosecuters look like keystone cops. Whether he truly believed in my innocence or not, he fought for me as if he did and used all his resources and contacts available to defend me. He is the best lawyer and I would recommend him unequivocally.
