Making the client feel comfortable and aware of all the risks associated with their legal risks are Salma’s main goals. She understands the client’s stress associated with handling legal work and so she commits to transparent and prompt communication, even if it means working beyond normal business hours.

She also understands more than the law. She takes it upon herself to learn the economic, political, financial, and technological developments that affect her clients’ goals. Her gained knowledge allows her to more effectively serve her clients. It’s a never-ending process, but as a result, she provides more than a law firm, The Benkabbou Law Firm, PLLC becomes a resource for clients to gain valued advice.
