Attorney Benitez

Understands how intimidating immigration law can be. He understands and relates to many of his clients on a personal level having gone through the complex immigration system with his family as a teen. One of his most proud moments of his life was when he took the oath to become a United States Citizen during his second year of law school.

Attorney Benitez has your best interests at heart. He has received various awards as an attorney including a Citizen Citation in recognition of his many contributions and steadfast support for the Guatemalan community in the city of Providence.
