To me, nothing is more satisfying than hearing the words, “Not guilty.” This is why I am methodical in my preparation for trial, thoroughly reviewing every shred of evidence, including reports from law enforcement and experts, and examining the credibility and motives of witnesses to build a strong defense on your behalf.

“I can truly say Ben Sifuentes takes your best interests at heart and does not do things without thinking them over hundreds of times. He wants to make sure every angle is covered to give you the best defense imaginable. Ben is also tenacious, almost “Pitbullesque.” If you need an attorney to grab a hold and not let go, then I highly recommend Ben Sifuentes. I was terminated from my job on a Thursday, by Monday I was rehired. Ben will use every legal avenue he has and knows to defend you.”

“Bull Dog
I just submitted a review for a member of Jorge’s team. Let me say, Jorge cares about his clients. Truly. He listens and he’s great at what he does. Not sure why there’s not more reviews here other than people don’t sit and review, as I’ve only done this twice now. I’m submitting this because we were completely lost after falling for two other, separate, worthless attorneys we went through while our family member sat in jail for over an year. Jorge knows the Constitution and he uses it for your defense. Our family member was arrested with no regard to Constitution. The gov’t doesn’t care and once they get their bite on you, YOU have to come up with a defense. Jorge is a superb researcher on case law and puts that to excellent writing in Motions. You must have an attorney who knows the Constitution (sadly, many don’t use it or know it), researches well and puts it all together in an expertise way to hopefully have a judge grant the Motion. You won’t go wrong with Jorge, who is also works with two other attorneys who are just as excellent. We’ve named these three ‘The Dream Team’.”
