Rated one of the 10 Best Female Attorneys in 2016 from the American Institute of Criminal Law Attorneys
If you are ever in need of a professional, knowledgeable, experienced, and caring attorney, there is only one person to call and that is Mrs. Ashley Benedik. Without reservation, I and everyone that sat through the week of my son’s trial are happy to provide Mrs. Benedik and her assistant Mrs. Pate our highest, heart-felt recommendation.
On November 12, 2008, my son was falsely accused, wrongly arrested, and charged with three very serious crimes. A Bay County investigator, two deputy sheriffs, and a dog drove up to my house and asked to speak to my son, who politely went out to speak with them. After a brief explanation of the complaint and about ten minutes of repeated accusations by the investigator, they told him to walk with them to their car to answer a few questions. Within two minutes, one of the officers brought me the contents of my son’s pockets and said they were taking him to the sheriff’s office for questioning. At that point, I asked about his right to have an attorney present for questioning. I was told by the deputy that he did not have the right to an attorney for questioning and he smugly added, “You would not be able to get an attorney to call you at this time of night anyway.” He obviously did not know Mrs. Ashley Benedik!
I called the sheriff’s department numerous times and was told that my son had not been there. At about 1:30 am, I decided to call the Bay County Jail and was told that he was being booked in at that time. My son was never taken to the sheriff’s office for questioning, but was driven around and questioned by the investigator in his car until approximately 1:00 am. I was frantic, so I looked in the phone book and started going down the list and calling criminal lawyers. – Marilyn, mother of Client

Ashley Benedik & Stephany:For you its your own occupation; but to me, you were a Godsend. Two years and fourteen weeks, for DA’s and many pieces of paper and a heavy weight is lifted from my shoulder. The “Case is Dropped” and thus my remaining years can be in freedom. Your efforts cannot be paid in full, but I can thank you from the bottom of my heart. – William
