Brian Benitez is a trial lawyer who has been privileged to maintain a practice which has allowed him to travel across Texas to appear on behalf of his clients in hundreds of trials, and at hearings, arbitration, and mediation, on a broad range of matters, primarily including construction, labor & employment, commercial litigation, government law, and creditors’ rights. Brian has also developed an appellate practice in support of his litigation practice.
Brian is active in the Dallas Bar Association, and currently serves as the Co-Vice Chair for the Mock Trial and Bench/Bar Committees. Beyond the bar, Brian is active in his community, having recently graduated from the Rockwall Area Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Rockwall program, where he took an active role in completing a backyard safe space, at the Soroptomist House in Rockwall, which is managed jointly with the charity Women In Need, where women at risk from violence, and their children, can obtain counseling and other assistance. Brian is also active with construction trade organizations, including the Subcontractors’ Association of the Metroplex, and the National Subcontractors’ Alliance.
When not engaged in these pursuits, Brian enjoys spending time with his wife of 22 years, trying to keep up with two rescue dogs, indulging his curiosity with all things mechanical and electronic, or hiking, hunting, camping, fishing, or anything else ending in “-ing” which occurs outside.
Brian is admitted to practice before Texas courts; the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit; and the United States District Courts for the Northern and Eastern Districts of Texas, and the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas.
