I had 2 cases and contacted this attorney. At first he was attentive, gave me a reasonable price, and I hired him for my first case which he basically did the same thing I could have done if I showed up in court myself. This attorney does not fight for his clients and allowed the company that sued me to steal the money which already had been garnished. He doesnt defendant his client's best interest. I hired him for a 2nd case because he promised an affordable fee. He takes long to give you a retainer so he can charge extra once your case begins giving you no choice but to continue paying to avoid judgments on your credit report. He gives you one price and you end up paying double. In my case, I ended up paying him more than I was being sued for and he ended up not showing up in court despite pressuring me for my payment; a judgment was entered against me then he pressured me to sign the other agreement he made over the phone with the other attorney's giving me no choice but to cough up an additional 1800 and accept an agreement that made me the loser. He does no research on the case and if I wouldnt have done my own research of obtaining proof from court etc he would not have had any paperwork on the case. I would not recommend this attorney. He is disorganized and has an assistant which is also his secretary who does most of his contacts and paperwork for him. Doesnt return phone calls or emails once he gets paid. I lost the money that had been garnished because he did not negotiate it into the settlement and basically forced me into a settlement claiming he would have to charge me another 3500 to continue working on my case for which I already had paid him 3800 in addition to what I paid on the 1st case he worked in in which he made me lose money I had already paid that company as well as if his clients money isnt worth anything.
Attorney Jeffrey Benjamin battled on my case for 8 years before getting an extraordinary result. He overcame every roadblock that was set against us by the defendant in our case, both in and out of court, over that long and difficult period. The defendant was represented by a top insurance company, and fought us every step of the way. I so appreciate the hard work and dedication he showed in my case to bring a successful result even after so long. I highly recommend Lawyer Jeff Benjamin to anyone seeking legal services.
I hired Mr.Benjamin in 2007 after become a victim of a real estate scam. The individual that defrauded me was a real estate attorney and when I first sought justice, I had a difficult time finding an attorney that would even take on my case. Mr.Benjamin was professional and accessable throughout the entire 3 years that we were in litigation. This case eventually went to trial where this defendent was found guilty by a jury on 3 fraud charges and 1 breach of fiduciary duty charge. Mr.Benjamin remained as dedicated from the first day I met him to the last day of the trial. He is a real advocate for the underdog and I was extremely satisfied with his service.
