Personal Injury Attorney Steven Benvenisti Esq.

New Jersey personal injury attorney Steven Benvenisti

Steven Benvenisti, Esq. is a Partner at the Law Firm of Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C. He is Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney. As an attorney, he represents personal injury victims from car accidents, falls and the negligence of others. He is also an advocate for drunk driving victims and people living with brain, spine and other injuries.  “When I was in my early 20s, I was seriously injured when a drunk driver crashed into me as a pedestrian. I sustained a brain injury, along with both of my legs being badly broken. After hospitalization, multiple surgeries and rehabilitation, I was blessed with a 100% full recovery. I then went to law school and was driven to become an attorney who represents accident and personal injury victims.  My personal injury experience before becoming an attorney has provided me with a powerful perspective in truly understanding what my clients and their families are going through and how to best win their cases.”
