Through the combined expertise of the members of the Association, most areas of the law are represented, including...

Civil Litigation

Many disputes can be resolved without the involvement of the courts. If you area seeking to “right a wrong”, let a knowledgeable attorney explain the options available to you. When a dispute cannot be resolved without the involvement of the courts, you need to ensure that someone that understands the judicial process is involved. If you are a defendant, the consequences of a judgment against you can significantly affect your credit rating, as well as result in the requirement for you to pay a substantial judgment.

Corporate & Business Law

One of life's great joys is owning your own business. The law does not distinguish between a small business owner and a Fortune 100 company. The adage “business is business” is a reality many business owners discover to their despair. Let a knowledgeable attorney ensure that you choose the correct business entity if you are beginning a new venture, or review your contracts, corporate documents and discuss your operations if you are an existing business.

Criminal Defense

Either your personal freedom or that of a loved one is at stake. The objective of law enforcement is NOT to look out for your best interests, but to employ tactics and techniques that are confusing and unfair to the unfamiliar and unwitting citizen. Members of the Benzie County Bar Association WILL look out for your best interests and Fight to Defend you.

Remember, you have the right to remain silent. You have the right to have an attorney present to advise you.


An arrest for a DUI has potential effects that exist long after the disposition of your case. For that reason, you may want to consult with legal counsel when mounting a defense against allegations of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

There is no reason to go through this stressful process alone. Securing professional legal guidance can make the difference in the outcome of the case, though it is important to hire someone who focuses on DUI defense and is familiar with DUI laws.
