Sam is an excellent lawyer and I am so grateful to have been placed in contact with him. He is very diligent, professional and most importantly, reliable. He does a great job communicating, whether it is clarifying information related to your case or just a heads that he may be a few minutes behind. It is evident through how he conducts business, that he is passionate about his work. I thank Sam for his professionalism and hard work as I am able to be home with my family for the holidays which I am more grateful than any words could ever express.

I was dealing with my Felony case, and I was totally nervous. Sam assured me that everything will be okay I had a lot going for myself and he was perfect for the case. It was a long process for me. Sam kept patience with me the whole time keeping me posted with weekly updates, this was very soothing for me. Sam talked the Prosecutor and got a deal that I wanted not what the prosecutor wanted, thats always the best sign you have a excellent attorney. I was referred to Sam and nowI have referred him to a handful of my friends and he is doing well with them as well.

My husband was going through a difficult time with his health; and had a legal issue that came up. We contacted Sam through a personal recommendation and we couldn’t be happier with our decision. He wasn’t just compassionate, knowledgeable, professional, and bright; but he worked very hard to get us the results that we deserved. He took our case and brought it to what it should have become; from a criminal case to a civil infraction. We highly recommend Sam for anyone who may be looking to hire an attorney!

Drunk Driving / Operating While Intoxicated Review

“Sam Bennett was recommended to me by a friend that went through a DUI and was extremely satisfied with his legal representation. Following my friends recommendation, I decided to hire Sam as my attorney and it was the best decision I made. I was charged with OWI and Reckless driving on the 48th district court in West Bloomfield, which is notoriously known for being overly strict on drunk driving offenses. After meeting with Sam for the first time, I knew he was the right person for the job. Besides his great inside knowledge of the court systems, the prosecutors and the judges, the thing that appealed to me the most was the personal and individualized attention Sam brings to the table. You will not be just one more case. He is very accessible, guides you thorough every step of the way and, most importantly, DELIVERS RESULTS…..”

Metro Detroit Drug Crimes Lawyer

Whether you’re charged with simple possession or a more serious delivery/manufacture drug crime, the Court process can be daunting. The State of Michigan has been cracking down on everyone from drug dealers to personal users, so it’s important to put a plan in place before you enter a Courtroom.

Most of the time with delivery/manufacture charges, Prosecutors take several weeks to issue charges. The Michigan State Police Crime Laboratory must test and confirm the presence of the suspected drug before you can be charged. This waiting period is vital and a case can be won or lost during this time. It’s important to always be proactive. Don’t wait for charges to be issued before you contact an attorney. Make sure you contact an attorney immediately after the raid so you can know what to expect down the road. The process varies from county to county and city to city, so having a knowledgeable attorney on your side will ease your mind.

  • Will I go to jail?
  • Can I keep my record clear?
  • How will this impact my driver’s license?

Drug Crime Review

“After getting multiple drug charges in one arrest I wasn’t sure who to hire to represent me. When I was recommended Sam by a close family friend I went to a consultation and I immediately felt better about my situation and knew after 5 minutes he was the guy I needed to hire. He was there for me every step of the way and answered any questions truthfully. Sam went to great lengths and brought up different ways to help that turned to be very beneficial come sentencing. He represented me in a way that made me feel like he was rooting for my second chance and was willing to fight and get me that chance. I truly believe I never would have had the same outcome had I went with any one else and I forever thank Sam Bennett. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer.”
