Construction has always been one of Karen Ensley’s passions. Before attending Baylor Law School, she and her husband owned a contracting company, which gives her a unique perspective. Karen also has a passion for helping people, and that’s precisely what has driven her unwavering commitment to provide contracting and other construction-industry clients with a wide variety of legal services for 17 years.
In May 2019, Karen, a board-certified attorney, and her partner, Brian Benitez, founded Ensley Benitez Law, PC, so that they could combine their expertise—hers in construction law and his in finance and litigation—in a way uniquely tailored to representing their clients across Texas. Over the past three years, Karen and Brian have been a one-stop shop for their clients, handling cases such as OSHA and employment issues, EEOC audits, buying and selling businesses, property claims, collection of past due accounts, and more. “We’re a sword and shield for our clients,” Karen says. “Whether they need to be protected from someone or something or they need an advocate, we’ll fight for the best results.”
And she gets those results, thanks to her deep knowledge of the industry, its changing laws, and her involvement with multiple state and national contracting associations, such as the North Texas Roofing Contractors Association, where she serves as association counsel. Education and advocacy are two areas that Karen is particularly passionate about. “We represent the business owner who’s just trying to take care of their family and make a living.”
