Firm Overview

Mr. Benari was in private practice from 2001 to 2005, when he began recruiting other attorneys into the practice. The Benari Law Firm was then born and continues to grow and prosper. The Benari Law Firm has spent the last decade fighting on behalf of each and every client.

Example cases

The firm has represented a few cases that have caught the public's eye and were reported on the news. One example is when the firm represented a plaintiff in a funeral home scandal in Philadelphia in which the funeral home was selling body parts and one of the victims was the plaintiff's mother.

The firm has represented multiple criminal cases in the news including drug dealers accused of selling to the Philadelphia Sixers and Philadelphia Eagles. The firm also has had numerous victories in suppressing government evidence.

Arik Benari has personally represented a few clients from their first day of incorporation through growth to over $20 million in value as part of his business practice.

The firm has also successfully represented corporate clients in SEC private offerings, venture capital attainment, and successful fundraising through both friends and family, as well as angels.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

We started out as business lawyers, and with the success we had on the behalf of business owners, more and more often we were being asked to represent those owners and their employees in both family and criminal matters which is how those two areas of the practice were born.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

Over the course of 100 years, the American legal system has developed itself into a very complicated and amorphous thing. It is very difficult to understand to those who have not been properly educated in the legal system. While we applaud the effort of those who try to take their destiny in their own hands in regards to the legal system, we worry about the risk they take by doing so. While we appreciate the economic times we are in, please know that our office will always work with someone to try and fit their legal needs into their budget.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Mr. Benari is always willing to do so and that will generally be complete reviews at either his normal hourly rate or on a flat fee basis, depending on the length of the document.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

At this time, our firm's policy is not to do so.

Arik Benari

Arik Benari

Arik started his career as in-house counsel for a local technology company where he focused on private equity funding programs, as well as all the day-to-day legal needs of a growing technology company. In late 2001, Arik launched a private practice in Media, Pennsylvania and has been practicing throughout the Philadelphia region ever since.

I have a degree in public argument. Also I was very argumentative as a child and everyone who knew me thought I would become successful as a lawyer. I was always very opinionated and willing to argue my case.

Our strengths are clearly our ability to make sure our clients understand exactly what is going on at every point in their case and to make sure that they are part of the decision making and negotiation processes at all times.

Personal interests:

Mr. Benari spends much of his free time with his son, but when outside the office can often be found training both law enforcement and rape victims in self-defense and other areas of martial arts. Mr. Benari is also an aspiring author and has a few transcripts in the works.
