Bennett is good!
Using smartphone so not lots a verbiage. Got me properly represented for two separate speeding violations. I never had to go to court and both were dismissed. Nuff said.

Steve utilizeshis legal skills for his clients.
Simply put I was in a DUI mess, with variables to the situation that put me in a real tough spot. With Steve's knowledgeable background in this expertise, he will guide and represent you through the procedures, that will hopefully reach the best possible out come for your individual situation. Although I will always know that there are some officers of the peace who will attempt to block or deny your civil rights, at least there are attorneys like Steve who will represent their clients to receive a favorable outcome.
