I called Benjamin on behalf of a friend who was arrested for "ripping one" on the street. Benjamin was clear on the process and likely outcome and did a lot to reassure me that a first time offense will 99.9% of the time receive a MACD (Marijuana Adjourned in Contemplation of Dismissal). He further explained that a motion could be made, with good cause, to ask the judge to consider immediately sealing the file rather than wait the full year for it to be automatically sealed (assuming no further offenses).
In all, Benjamin is someone you can speak to and be heard and who will guide you appropriately.
I needed some legal advice and came across Mr. Lieberman when searching for answers to a legal question. He stood out as an attorney who really cared. I thought it couldn't hurt to give him a call. He exceeded my expectations and was so comforting in helping me with an issue that has affected my life for quite some time. He will spend time with you, he will research the matter at hand and be honest and sincere. Let's just say I don't have anymore sleepless nights due to a legal issue because Ben set the record straight. If you need an attorney, you will get a great one and then some. He is truly o e of a kind.

Benjamin was extremely responsive, knowledgeable and very honest about the potential outcomes available in an open container matter. He laid out all the pros and cons of the different options available, providing first-hand examples of how those could be achieved, the realistic potential of achieving a favorable outcome based on the specific court, as well as the long-term impact (if any) of each scenario. I would wholeheartedly recommend his services for any criminal matter.

I totally recommend Benjamin. He is very quick to respond to calls and emails and he is extremely professional. Unlike most other lawyers, he impressed me by spending a lot of time going through my case and options both on the phone and in person even before I decided to hire him. Benjamin did his best to expedite my case so it took only 2 days from the day I walked into his office to the day the case was dismissed. I can't appreciate him enough. A very nice and professional lawyer. My wife made absolutely the best choice to choose him for my case. Thank you so much!

I live on the west coast. My son, who is living in NYC, got arrested on possession after a police "stop and frisk." As a corporate lawyer, I knew nothing about the drug laws in New York, but was deeply concerned that once in the justice system things could potentially go sideways and cause my son lasting problems. I did a search online and found Benjamin on this site. When I called his office, he answered the phone (another lawyer I called had his underling call me back...when you call Benjamin, you get Benjamin). He quickly displayed a deep knowledge of the law and how these specific matters were handled. He was also very clear about what could be expected in terms of a result - which eased my mind considerably. He went on to explain (unlike most lawyers), that it was possible to obtain the same result w/o hiring him, though having him involved would speed things along at the courthouse. End of day, things went exactly as Benjamin predicted they would. From the get-go Benjamin was a no BS guy, who was expert on the law and the process, he didn't oversell himself, he simply told it like it was. He delivered the result he promised at a very, very reasonable rate. And was always responsive throughout - answered the phone, returned calls and answered emails.
I highly, highly recommend him to anyone who finds themselves on the wrong end of a possession charge. This is a great lawyer who also happens to be great guy.

I hesitated to contact a lawyer over a petty incident that happened to me recently, but I am glad that I did decide to seek legal advice. When I called Benjamin Lieberman, I was able to speak to him immediately. He listened carefully to my situation, and was so reassuring that it really put my mind at ease. Rather than imagining the worst case scenario, this phone call gave me a more realistic view of what I have gotten myself into. I recommend contacting Benjamin Lieberman for legal advice. He keeps it real!

I am dealing with a civil claim / shoplifting issue and was really concerned about the repurcussions of such a case. I saw Mr. Lieberman had left advice on a couple of legal forums for other such cases and that he offers a free consultation for anyone with questions so I felt compelled to call him based on feeling comfortable with his advice I was reading that he had given to others. I have to say that I am so grateful that I came about finding his name. He called me back quickly after I left a message and assured me in a most genuine and compassionate manner about my situation. As I mentioned to him, I hope that I am never faced with the law and in turn having to hire a lawyer, but I will definitely keep his name in case anyone I know needs an attorney. What a great example of a human being. Made me feel like I could trust him and gives solid advice.

I called Benjamin J Lieberman's office to ask for a free consultation on a legal matter regarding Shoplifting charges. I was told he would call me back soon.
Two minutes later, I have Benjamin on the phone, listening to my issue asking for specific details that would assist him and me, in the understanding of my case. The legal advice he offered me was extremely beneficial, and if I wasn't financially unable to hire him for his services, I would in an instant. He comforted me on the matter and answered all my questions. He delivered options to me in a way I could understand and trust. Hopefully there is no "next time", but if there should be, Benjamin will be the first to receive my case.
Answered quickly, matter-of-factly, and clearly. His sense of humor is on point as well.
