I have known Kim for over twelve years. During that time (as a fellow lawyer), I have trained with her and the best lawyers in the nation. Kim cares passionately for her clients, fights for them as if they were her own family, and is a highly skilled trial attorney. If you are arrested for a DWI in Belton, Missouri or the surrounding areas, Kim is the best DWI / criminal defense attorney to choose.


Kim has been a friend and trusted colleague for well over 10 years. Her knowledge is both diverse and comprehensive. Kim is a fount of information and is always willing to share what she has to assist others. I would not only recommend her for legal services but business ..advice as well.


I have known Kim Benjamin for several years as a colleague. I am the Course Director fort a series of courses designed to train lawyers in how to present complicated scientific cases to juries. On the advice of a great lawyer that I know, I asked Kim Benjamin help with teaching…


Our Practice Areas

No matter what type of charges you are facing, chances are that our Kansas City, Missouri, defense attorneys can help you. Our practice areas cover a range of criminal, traffic, and DWI offenses. We represent individuals accused of nearly any type of crime, including drug crimes, sex crimes, assault, and other violent crimes in the Kansas City area.

If you have been charged with a crime, you should retain the services of an attorney who has relevant knowledge and experience in that particular area of the law. You’ll also need an attorney who has successfully represented clients facing similar charges. A skillful criminal defense lawyer in Kansas City can listen to your side of the story and explain your options, so you’ll know what to expect.

The Kansas City, Missouri defense attorneys at the Missouri DWI & Criminal Law Center at Benjamin Law Firm, have an extensive understanding of the legal standards and guidelines regarding several areas of the law. We use that knowledge to develop a strong defense strategy to represent you in court and fight for the best possible outcome.


Drunk driving is one of the most common crimes committed in the United States. And it is not always committed intentionally or knowingly. Many responsible social drinkers get pulled over and are horrified to discover that they are over the legal limit. 


There is perhaps no category of crime that elicits the same public reaction as sex offenses. And the strong public condemnation has led to similarly harsh laws and sentencing guidelines. Depending on the nature of the offenses and the victims involved, criminal sexual crimes can actually result in harsher penalties than murder.


America has always had a complicated relationship with drugs. After decades of zero-tolerance policies that filled our nation’s prisons, states have begun to decriminalize and even legalize certain drugs like marijuana. Meanwhile, opioid and heroin abuse have become a deadly public health crisis threatening nearly every community in the U.S.


The Missouri DWI & Criminal Law Center defends clients accused of a wide variety of offenses, including violent crimes. If you or a loved one has been arrested and charged with assault, battery or a similar offense, contact us immediately to discuss your legal options with one of our highly skilled defense attorneys.


The words theft, burglary, and robbery are often used interchangeably. But in Missouri, these are three different crimes that each carry serious consequences. Here’s a look at the differences between theft vs. burglary vs. robbery.


In the United States, a criminal record can follow you for the rest of your life. It seems like every application asks you to disclose your criminal convictions, and a conviction can make it much more difficult to find a job or a place to live and pursue higher education.


At the Missouri DWI & Criminal Law Center, we’re here to provide legal help to all drivers. Our traffic attorney can help you fight speeding tickets and other traffic citations and keep your driving record as clean as possible. We represent traffic ticket clients throughout the Kansas City metro area.


In the age of the internet and electronic data records, it is very difficult to leave your past in the past. A criminal record, offense violation, or infraction can follow you for years to come, impeding your ability to get hired, get into college, qualify for student loans and welfare, and even find housing.

A team who will fight for the best possible outcome for you

We fight to help good people win their case, keep their record clean, and stay out of jail!
