Ephraim Benjamin is one of Washington State’s most successful criminal defense attorneys. Over the last 23 years, Mr. Benjamin has successfully defended clients  in both state and federal courts in Pierce, King, Mason  and Thurston County, and Federal courts coast to coast.  Ephraim Benjamin has  successfully fought on behalf of criminal defendants accused of  a variety of  infractions, misdemeanors and felonies.  Ephraim Benjamin believes that  no criminal defendant should have to face the government’s limitless power and resources without a skilled, aggressive, experienced and committed criminal defense attorney by their side.   Ephraim Benjamin has successfully defended clients in all types of matters; he recognizes that  no one criminal case is exactly like another, and that the path to achieving positive results depends on identifying the  specific facts and circumstances that make each case unique and which ultimately, may  lead to mitigation or even negation of criminal charges.  

What sets Ephraim Benjamin apart from other criminal defense attorneys is the amount of time, consideration and access he provides his clients.  He is particularly sensitive to the fear, anxiety and stress that his clients experience when facing charges that have the potential to result in dire consequences such as: loss of personal  liberty, forfeiture of immigration status, diminished access to  children and family members,  loss of professional licenses, and/or  limitations to  future career opportunities.  As a client of Ephraim Benjamin, you can rest assured that  that he will be there to provide friendship, counsel and assistance by fax, cell or email 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Because of his  reputation for success in both negotiation and trial work, Mr. Benjamin is often the attorney other top lawyers choose to represent them both in  criminal court and before the Washington State Bar. Currently he serves  as “special counsel” to three other top law firms in the areas of white collar criminal defense, violent crime defense, property crime defense, DUI defense, and defense of narcotics cases involving  forfeiture of assets.

A Top Gun Defense
There will never be another defense attorney like Ephraim Benjamin. I took a chance in hiring Ephraim as my defense counsel knowing he had no prior experience in an court martial. It was only because of his reputation as a defense attorney I took that chance in hiring him to represent me along with my JAG attorneys in a court martial. Ephraim was ready for trial within five days on a case that I was looking at multiple life sentences. With tactfulness and years of trial experience. Ephraim played critical role in my defense team. With his experience and ability to present my side of the story along with his ability to show that the government’s case was based off of false allegations. The jury deliberated for less than an hour to return with a not guilty verdict on all charges. For that I am forever grateful.

I am truly blessed!
When I was incarcerated and didn’t know what I had gotten myself into being around the wrong people and wrong time, I really was facing some time god knew my heart and he place people in your life for a reason , and god placed this Attorney in my life. I couldn’t afford a lawyer at all but I prayed and the more I prayed And left all my worries to god, the more he worked through my favor. Emphiam kept in contact with me when I was incarcerated not all the time but just enough to let me know what was going on and just by all this I was grateful. I gotta say, I was and am truly thankful and lucky through it all. This was 8 years ago. Now I watch who I accept in my life, I make sure I make the right choices, I’m working , and everyone that I choose as friends are really family! Thank you Mr .Emphriam for helping me ! you are truly amazing!!!!

HIRE THIS MAN
I was charged with 5 counts of rape of a minor and one count of depiction of a minor. Looking at quite a few years if found guilty. Ephraim Benjamin surgically and tactfully picked apart the accusing parties testimony. And won the case, all 12 jurors unanimously found me not guilty of all charges. He helped with restoring my life....

Very knowledgable Attorney
Mr. Benjamin does an excellent job pleading your case. I have had him represent me in a few different cases, and each one of them he was either able to get dismissed and/or reduced. He takes the time to get all the facts and advise accordingly. (He is also very easy to talk to and help you feel at ease)! I highly recommend him

An exceptional attorney
After speaking with Mr. Benjamin for 5 minutes it became crystal clear that he cares deeply about his clients. He is a phenomenal "counselor" in every way. While many attorneys offer a 30 minute free consultation, Mr. Benjamin will take as much time as needed to get to know you and provide the legal counsel and emotional support needed when facing a criminal charge. Under his guidance and leadership I feel like I'm in the best hands possible. You will NEVER feel like anything but his #1 client. Without reservation, I highly recommend Mr. Benjamin for any criminal charges you may be facing. He WILL fight for you!

Mr. Benjamin accomplished a favorable result where other attorneys were unwilling to take the case. I highly recommend Ephraim Benjamin for taking on cases involving his expertise.

Very Impressed
Mr Benjamin is extremely quick and intelligent. He kept me very well informed throughout the entire process. He always responds quickly with answers to my questions and has an overall impressive "style". I felt unbelievably comfortable with Mr Benjamin as my lawyer and would attempt to retain his services again in an instant if I ever need him again.
