NewLAWu.s. announced that David H. Benton has joined with the firm as an affiliate attorney to practice in areas related to business, state, county and municipal issues, among others. NewLAWu.s. is a national law firm dedicated to providing the highest quality work and service delivered by exceptional attorneys who choose an alternative business model to the traditional practice of law, removing the economic burden of overhead and fixed salaries.

“I have been fortunate to build a career helping governments, elected officials, and local leaders make good decisions,” said Benton. Making good decisions is complicated and often time consuming. The legal profession has long wrestled with meeting the modern needs of clients, while dragging forward the old billing methods of the past. Why can’t we figure this out? NewLAWu.s. has done just that. Its flexible approach to billing not only benefits clients and their objectives, but I believe the practice of law and outcomes improve when there are options. Another benefit of the NewLAWu.s. model is its use of technology to eliminate costly overhead. Clients receive high quality support from seasoned and experienced attorneys, but are charged lower rates when the work is done effectively through technology.”

Mr. Benton has an extensive background in state and local governments.  As an affiliate attorney with NewLAWu.s., he provides counsel to government leaders and county elected officials. His background encompasses environmental law, land use and zoning, procurement, transportation, grant programs, affordable housing, budget, finance, housing, human services, construction, and economic development. Past engagements include the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, Maricopa County, Fennemore Craig, P.C., and the Arizona Supreme Court, among others.
