Benson is an expert trial lawyer who has handled complex, high stakes matters in both state and federal court.  With over 100 jury trials under his belt, he is prepared with real-world experience for every twist and turn a case may have.  Recognized as the Best Law Firm in Fort Worth by the Fort Worth Star Telegram, Benson leads the highly experienced trial team at Varghese Summersett PLLC from the start to finish of every case.  

Beginning his career as a trial lawyer for the Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney’s Office under the administration of Joe Shannon, Benson found great success before juries in cases ranging from misdemeanors to violent felony offenses.  Once he became a criminal defense attorney, he was quickly admitted to practice in federal court in the Northern District of Texas where he earned respect of the bench and the bar for his intelligence, thorough processes, and outstanding results.  Benson ultimately became Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Criminal Law, distinguishing him as one of the most experienced and knowledgeable trial attorneys in the state.  As a former President of the Tarrant County Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, Benson has been entrusted with continued progress of the most active trial lawyers in the local bar.  

Recognized as a Top 100 trial Attorney by the National Trial Lawyers Association, Benson has also been named a “Top Attorney” by Fort Worth Inc. every year since 2012.  Understanding any edge over your adversary can mean a great difference in outcome, Mr. Varghese is a member of the College of the State Bar of Texas, a distinction recognizing less than 10 percent of all licensed Texas lawyers for outstanding achievement in legal education.

Mr. Varghese does not shy away from the most difficult of cases: sophisticated dark web government seizures, complex federal conspiracies, intoxication related accidents involving death, and antitrust violations to name a few.  As Outstanding Young Lawyer of Tarrant County in 2019, Benson has paved the way for the future of premier trial law firms in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex.  “Our way of doing things is greater than how much or how quickly we win a case, it is also focused on the customer service experience tailored specifically to every case we handle; to the ease of communication, and accessibility you have come to expect in a modern world,” Benson says.

“No two cases are the same.  There is no ‘if you handled one you’ve handled them all.’  At Varghese Summersett Injury Law Group, we recognized every case, every client deserves a unique strategy to maximize the potential for recovery. Our team of highly-skilled trial lawyers is prepared to take this journey with you, to develop and execute a plan to best suit your needs.  We believe you should start with the team you finish with, so choose the team with real-world courtroom trial experience and success.”
