Walter Benenati

Managing Partner and Shareholder

"I feel like my whole life has prepared me to be the lawyer families turn to in times of crisis. Having walked in their shoes, I feel like I am looking at myself when a client walks in the door. That will never change."

Thank you for considering me for your legal needs. When you hire me I will be responsive and attentive to your calls and questions. I will return phone calls and be in my office when you need me. I do not golf nor do I take much time off. I am not a trust fund baby. My parents are not doctors and lawyers. They were hard working middle class people before they both passed away while I was in law school over 10 years ago. I am a nice generous person that will treat you with respect. I am married and a father of two young children. When I am not spending time with my family I will be in my office working ON YOUR CASE. In my law firm, we do not have voicemails and your attorney will talk to you immediately or reach out the same day. You are my client but you are also my employer – I WORK FOR YOU and will work as hard as possible to make you feel I will be your go to lawyer for the rest of your life.

I have extensive experience in what you want to hire me for having successfully filed and handled over 14,000 bankruptcies, foreclosures, and personal injury cases. We have recovered millions of dollars for our personal injury clients and have wiped out nearly a billion of dollars of debt for our bankruptcy clients. I will fight for you.

I established this firm to be the kind of place where clients can feel comfortable and happy about their representation. Our mission in creating the Benenati Law Firm is to provide exceptional legal services at an affordable rate for Central Florida residents.

I earned my juris doctorate law degree in 2006 and passed the Florida Bar Exam on my first attempt. During law school, having to work full-time waiting tables and rely on credit cards to make ends meet, I personally filed bankruptcy in 2008 to give myself an opportunity for a fresh start. Realizing what a powerful tool the US Bankruptcy code provides consumers, I decided to dedicate my practice to helping Central Florida residents ever since in legal matters in the areas of Bankruptcy, Personal Injury, and Foreclosure Defense.

We are a trusted referral source for any legal matter you may need.
