Melina S. Benninghoff is a former Kings County Deputy District Attorney who provides a criminal defense to indigent clients in Kings County as well as devoting her law practice to private clients, with a strong emphasis on the trial phase of legal advocacy. During her career as a private criminal defense lawyer, she has handled and tried a wide range of state and federal

criminal cases in the Central Valley, as well as other jurisdictions in California. Ms. Benninghoff also handles many other types of cases, such as family law and personal injury law. Her trial experience, along with a personal commitment to her clients, combine to offer the prospective client competent representation in a supportive, hands-on environment. As an attorney, her philosophy is grounded in the strong belief that her clients should be fully informed about every aspect of their case as it progresses. You need a good attorney who will prepare your case thoroughly and who will make a strong and reasonable presentation to the court. Your choice of a lawyer is so important.

While every situation is different, Ms. Benninghoff strives to minimize the effects and ramifications of a criminal case to allow her clients to put the case behind them and move on with their professional and personal lives.
