Ben M. Sifuentes, Jr

My name is Ben M. Sifuentes Jr., and I am an experienced San Antonio attorney who serves clients throughout South Texas. My law firm handles criminal defense and employment issues for law enforcement, nurses and other public employees as well as federal and state criminal charges for all accused individuals.

I have been practicing law since 1984, both as a criminal defense attorney and for 9 1/2 years as a criminal prosecutor for the Bexar County Criminal District Attorney’s Office and the Texas Office of the Attorney General. I am a member of the San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyers Association (SACDLA), San Antonio Bar Association, American Bar Association and Federal Bar Association. My legal career also includes teaching case preparation for SACDLA conferences.

As a longtime admirer of John F. Kennedy and his book “Profiles in Courage,” I knew from a young age that I had a passion for seeking justice for those who feel they have been denied a voice. My care and concern for my clients goes beyond representation. I care about each individual and want to give him or her the very best chance of success in court.

Praise for Ben M. Sifuentes, Jr


San Antonio's best Criminal Attorney!

My ordeal started in April of 2013, when I was falsely accused of Indecency with a child. I originally hired another attorney in San Antonio who guided me through the first few months. I was happy with him but I wanted more so I did my research and Ben’s name kept coming up. The Sifuentes law firm is exactly what I needed since I also needed employment guidance since I was a police officer of 19 years. The stakes were high and I was facing certain prison time if I didn’t hire the right legal team. Knowing this I made the decision to hire Ben. It was a move that I did not regret! Since the beginning I knew this was another type of attorney. He reviewed the evidence over and over. Ben would assemble an entire staff on a Saturday and we would go over every shred of evidence. I can tell you Ben will work for you and he will out work the DA’s office. Ben will be prepared! My ordeal ended on the third anniversay to the day with a “Not Guilty” verdict. It took the jury less than 15 minutes to render this decision. I can tell you Ben is like a family member now! If you need an attorney in Bexar County I would tell you to hire Ben!

Forever Grateful

In March 2015, I found myself in need of an attorney. I searched and searched but couldn’t find anyone willing to help me fight a very powerful corporation. I was about to give up when a friend told me about Ben Sifuentes. I was very skeptical when I first walked into Ben’s office. I had been to so many attorney’s and none of them would entertain the idea of helping me. By the time shook Bens hand and walked out of his office, I knew I was in THE best hands I could be in! Ben went to work on my civil case and I was amazed to see him work. Ben is extremely skilled and very experienced in both criminal and civil trials. While preparing to defend you, Ben will sit down with you and listen to you. Don’t get offended if he turns his head away from you or leans back in a chair while you’re talking to him. He is not ignoring you! Quite the contrary! Ben is playing out every scenario and thinking 10 steps ahead of those who you are fighting! I can truly say Ben takes your best interest 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. Well back to my story, I witnessed Ben tear apart a state witness in my civil hearing, without the witness even knowing what had happened lol! Needless to say, after my hearing, I was reinstated to my job with back pay which is rare to be awarded! Ben, my family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts! You helped me breath again and now I can smile. You are a phenomenal attorney and person. I wish the best for you and all those blessed enough to have you represent them!

"Not Guilty"

Eleven years ago, I was about to lose my freedom and my job. Mr. Sifuentes reviewed the facts of my case dozens of times, went to the scene of events 20 or more times, asked questions, prepared witnesses, consulted several expert witnesses, got me ready to testify. We were well prepared. I walked out of the courtroom a free man, and I retired with my full pension.

Bless Man

I’m in the military so i like and do things in orders, and Ben did just that. He is more than a lawyer he is also a friend that you need in and out of a court room. Ben treat you like one of his family member.
