Little Rock, AR 72202
(501) 353-0024

Boutique criminal defense litigation firm Benca & Benca has earned a reputation for a team-driven approach in representing their clients in all phases of a criminal case. The client is a key member of the team and will be involved in all decisions throughout their case—a process usually stacked against the client. The prosecution’s team includes at least two attorneys, easy availability to law enforcement resources, experts and investigators. Benca & Benca levels the playing field by having access to a number of experts in a variety of fields, including investigators. They utilize CaseMap® and TimeMap®, the latest case management software that assists them in isolating the relevant and unique issues that each case presents.

As a boutique firm, customer service is a priority, allowing for the personal touch that clients expect. They handle a relatively small number of cases to ensure that each client’s case gets the complete attention it deserves. They are available at any time day or night by phone, email and text messaging. Patrick and Kara’s time is always well spent, which results in them being fully prepared when it comes time for preparing motions and attending hearings and trials.

Patrick and Kara have successfully litigated all criminal matters, including, drug charges, violent felonies, sex crimes, white-collar crimes and post-conviction matters. No case is too small or large, and all can be life-altering to the client. They are a husband and wife team and enjoy strategizing their clients’ cases in and out of the office.

Patrick and Kara, as well as associate John Kennedy, are also actively litigating white collar crimes. The attorneys dedicate themselves to staying abreast of current trends, case law, technology and various other innovations in order to successfully represent all their clients.
