About Salma Benkabbou, Esq.

Founder and Managing Attorney

Salma Benkabbou is an enthusiastic and zealous attorney. She prides herself on her work ethic and ability to get things done irrespective of any dire circumstances. Salma graduated from law school at the top of her class and was on the Dean’s List every semester throughout her law school career. In an effort to make herself more valuable to her clients, she became licensed in Florida, North Carolina and New Jersey.

She developed a love and passion for helping others by always standing up for what is right. Salma believes that lawyers should be accessible to all and not only to those who are privileged. As such, she developed a business model that allows her to service clients from all financial backgrounds.

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.

Salma collaborates with other attorneys who have extensive years of litigation experience to ensure she is doing her best to keep her clients out of court or at least at an advantage if they do find themselves in court. She dedicates her collaborative energy to making significant contributions to her clients and community relationships.

Salma commits her time, talent, and resources to delivering results for her clients. She researches local and national laws that could impact the clients’ needs. 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. 

She looks forward to hearing from you and to being of service. Do not hesitate to contact her, she welcomes questions and inquiries anytime!
