    Ben Trachten has helped both my family and my business through a lot of complicated issues and a significant amount of stress. He was always a phone call or email away, responding to me promptly and with empathy.

    • I recommend Benjamin Trachten.

    Attorney Trachten represented me for multiple property closings. He has facilitated difficult opposition to reach fair agreements. He is curious, responsive, and takes additional time to walk clients through the legal process. He has a strong understanding of Connecticut law.

    Attorney Trachten was a pleasure to work with. He was efficient, knowledgeable, courteous, professional and responded to me in a very timely manner. He reviewed documents I prepared based off of my legal background from years ago and gave me suggestions, input and site recommendations that were beneficial to my matter. I would refer him and use his services again and look forward to working with him on future landlord/tenant matters in the future.

    • I recommend Benjamin Trachten.

    I am a real estate investor and have used Ben on several of my purchases and sales. His communication throughout the process is remarkable. In addition, his real estate law knowledge and general law knowledge is excellent. He and his staff are very responsive to my every need and do keep things moving and go out of there way to bring all parties together to close the deal. I do intend to continue using Ben for all my real estate and general attorney needs.

    • I recommend Benjamin Trachten.

    I hired Ben Trachten to serve as my real estate attorney for the closing of my house in New Haven, CT after relocating (out of state). Every time I either emailed or called Ben he always responded immediately which really told me he cared and was attentive to his client. His advice was always correct and more importantly he did a few things above and beyond his duties to assist. Ben is also easy to talk to and just makes the most difficult situation easy. I can highly recommend him without any hesitation. He is honest and takes pride in his profession. Thank you Ben!

    • I recommend Benjamin Trachten.

    My wife and I contacted Benjamin about a landlord/tenant issue. He was very personable, and honestly told us as landlords what our options were, what the likelihood of success and cost was with each option, and in cases where we had questions he didn't know the answer, he actually said he'd have to do some research. Then as a welcome change to the norm, Benjamin followed up and got back to us in a very timely manner! He actually cares about creating informed clients, and doesn't hide behind the "I need to charge you for every minute I talk to you" façade.

    • Benjamin handled my Landlord & Tenant matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Ben helped my mom with a family eviction from her house. He offered several alternatives to litigation that would save us time and money. He was very patient in explaining the options to us and was very fair in charging us for his time. We were able to resolve the situation without costly litigation, and I credit Ben for helping that happen. I genuinely felt he was more interested in helping us than in generating revenue for himself.
