I’m glad I hired them. They made me feel like more than a client, family. They put in a great effort and put their best foot forward. I would recommend them to anyone. A 1 service.

Kim has a passion for her job like no other. She is not your run of the mill lawyer that just takes your money and gets you the simplest plea. In my particular case I was mentally done dealing with it and she advised me to keep fighting and she was right. She got the charge dismissed. It’s hard to put faith into a lawyer but she had my life in her hands and never once took that for granted. I will always be grateful that I followed her advise and put my trust in her. I would recommend her as an attorney over anyone.

A very welcoming office environment with a professional team that made our experience almost painless. Tamara is a huge asset to this firm with her friendly smile and warm personality. She is extremely helpful and supportive. Matt is intelligent, informative and a true fighter. He took a bad situation and made things work out. I have 100 % total confidence in this firm and its employees for any future needs.

Kim and her team worked hard to help me a few years ago. The work they did enabled me to pursue my dream of becoming a registered nurse. They made the whole process less overwhelming and were always available when I had questions. Kim and her team are the best!

The Benjamin Law Firm is amazing! They have helped me through many of past mistakes and mishaps. I feel like I’ve grown a lot since the first time that I needed Kim’s legal council. The firm is always quick to help and good at what they do. Definitely recommended!!!

Expert Focus And A Record Of Success For Clients

Criminal law is complex. Properly defending a client takes a lot of time, knowledge, research and investigative work. Even if you have a strong case, the difference between “guilty” and “not guilty” sometimes comes down to how well your attorney represents you.

We believe that every client deserves to have a criminal defense attorney who will fight for them, and that’s why we established the Missouri DWI & Criminal Law Center at Benjamin Law Firm, LLC. Criminal defense is our focus, and we defend the rights and freedoms of every client we represent.

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