Bennett & Bennett
Trials, Appeals, and Habeas Corpus Proceedings
in State and Federal Courts
JUST LAWYERS HELPING PEOPLE.
You have dreams of a better future for yourself and your loved ones, and a criminal accusation is making you fear for those dreams. I’m not only a lawyer. I’m also a father, and a brother, and a friend. So I know what you’re feeling. I’ve been there myself, frightened for my future and the future of my loved ones. And I’m here to tell you: You don’t have to be afraid.
Good people make mistakes, but those mistakes do not have to define you. Even when you do everything right, the police, prosecutors, and even the courts break their own rules to persecute you. I will fight the police, the prosecutors, and the courts with you, as I have with so many people before you, so that, when we come out together on the other side of that fight, you can fulfill your dreams.
About Jennifer & Mark Bennett
Bennett & Bennett is a husband-and-wife team of top-rated criminal-defense attorneys. Since 1995, Jennifer and Mark have defended people charged with misdemeanors & felonies, in both state & federal courts.
Mark and Jennifer are both graduates of the University of Houston Law Center. Mark has been practicing criminal defense since 1995; Jennifer joined him in 1997. In 1999, Mark spent five weeks training at the Trial Lawyers College in Dubois, Wyoming. Since then, he has spent hundreds of hours studying and training—not only in the law, but also in fields like improv, psychodrama, and hypnosis, to be a better lawyer.
Jennifer brings her previous experience in family law, probate, real estate law, banking, and commercial litigation to the criminal forum, enabling her to approach each case with a wide lens. Jennifer works mostly behind-the-scenes, working with Mark to ensure that each case is handled with best of care.
