    Eric has represented me twice now and both times have been a great experience. He’s very knowledgeable, and explains everything very well. He was able to get my case dismissed & record expunged. Would defiantly recommend Mr. Benavides to any one seeking legal council. –Google Review

    J. Mart | ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ | …almost in tears when they said not guilty…

    Mr. Benavides represented me on a criminal case starting last year. Earlier this year we ended up going to trial. We decided to turn down good offers because we both felt I was innocent. The case ended up as a not guilty. We won the case and he also expunged my record. I was almost in tears when they said not guilty. It was a big relief after having been going to court for more than a year. I would recommend everyone to Mr. Benavides. Thank you so much. –Read on Google

    Chevy M. | ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Let me begin by saying Mr. Eric Benavides is worthy of 10 Gold Stars, if you choose him to represent you I don’t think you will be disappointed. I was not familiar with the process of how to obtain the services of a good lawyer because i had not been in a situation that required a lawyer. I recently had a charge in Harris County for Family Domestic Violence and what made the situation worse was the fact that i lived in Louisiana. I surfed the web and found some favorable reviews on Eric Benavides so I decided I would give him a try. I am so glad that i chose Eric because I initially consider a few other lawyers. Eric got my information and started on my case right away, i only had to make two appearances in court before Eric got my case DISMISSED!!! He kept me from having to make multiple trips that would have cost me a lot of driving and working time. I cannot thank him and his staff enough, every time I called for an update on my case I was able to speak with a Live Voice (that’s really important to me) his office staff was very friendly and showed a genuine concern for my case. He always returned my calls and he did exactly what we told me he would do. Let Eric Benavides represent you, you want be sorry. –Review on Google
