About Us


Holistic Approach to Criminal Defense

At the Benevento Law Firm, we strive to address not just the Criminal Charges themselves, but try to understand what the collateral consequesnces are as well.  When handling these matter, we look at what effect it will have on School, Employment, and the Personal Lives of our clients, and what we can do to mitigate those damages.   We have substance abuse counselors on call and we inform our clients what a criminal charge means fro their future and what we can do about it.  We are well versed in Expungment Law and the Diversionary Programs offered by the Court in order to allow for dismissals for many first time offenders.
