Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.


Aggressive. Experienced. 


Big enough to win, small enough to care. 

Welcome to BENARI & NGUYEN, our story begins some time ago in Orange County, California when Chris Nguyen and Omri Ben-Ari came together as Real Estate Litigators. After venturing into separate practice, they later reunited to build a law firm dedicated to providing progressive and personalized legal services underpinned by aggressive representation and outstanding client service.

Today, our firm covers a broad spectrum of civil litigation disputes facing our clients. Our experience provides us with the unique ability to grapple complex interdisciplinary matters while exceeding our client's expectations. We provide our clients with a full-service range of representation and legal services. At BAN, we are committed to bringing the best of the Firm to every client engagement.

On behalf of all the dedicated and talented professionals at BENARI & NGUYEN LLP, we look forward to consistently providing outstanding legal services for many years to come. 

Very Best,

           BENARI & NGUYEN LLP
