R. Daryll Bennett

Criminal Defense Attorney

Criminal law is the body of law that relates to crime. It regulates social conduct and proscribes whatever is threatening, harmful, or otherwise endangering to the property, health, safety, and moral welfare of people. It includes the punishment of people who violate these laws. Criminal law varies according to jurisdiction, and differs from civil law, where emphasis is more on dispute resolution and victim compensation than on punishment.

When you have been arrested or accused of a crime you need an experienced attorney to quickly fight for your rights.

When it comes to your freedom and future, you should not take chances by working with anyone but an experienced, confident, and aggressive criminal defense attorney. Mr. Bennett has been providing vigorous criminal defense to clients accused of crimes for more than three decades, often trying difficult and seemingly hopeless cases with success.

Our clients are our top priority, which means we do everything possible to accommodate you.

Regardless of whether it is a misdemeanor or a felony, a conviction for any kind serious criminal offense carries severe, life-altering consequences.
