The criminal justice system is daunting and confusing. Kevin Bennett is determined to guide his clients through it with as little stress as possible by maintaining open communication while aggressively fighting the charges for the best result.

As a student, Kevin Bennett studied at the University of Texas in Austin, earning his bachelor's degree in economics. After college, he earned his J.D. from the South Texas College of Law.

After becoming licensed to practice law in Texas, he gained experience under the Honorable Judge Jim York of the 246th District Court of Texas. This experience gave him a personal look at the struggles that individuals face when charged with a crime. Kevin Bennett decided that his true passion was fighting for those people facing criminal charges as a criminal defense attorney.

While determinedly defending his clients from charges including traffic offense, drug charges, and DUI, he is also an active member of the legal community. By participating in organizations such as the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer's Association, the Austin Criminal Defense Lawyer's Association, and the Court Appointed Family Advocates of Travis County, he is able to stay current on legal issues.
