Arson is a Felony
Arson is generally a felony punishable by prison.
When representing clients, the firm looks at the facts, rather than emotion. They understand that when structures or property are destroyed, the police, fire department and fire rangers look for any answer to bring some closure. If the evidence doesn't specifically point to their clients, or the case has been overcharged due to emotions, the attorneys at Benjamini & Benjamini work hard to have the case dismissed. Before and during trial, they challenge the evidence that is there and expose weaknesses in the prosecution's case to obtain the most favorable outcome possible.
In cases involving repeat felony offenders, they take extra steps to help avoid a strike against their client and extended criminal penalties.
