About Me

Aggressive, creative, and compassionate are words Ben Stevens’ colleagues freely use to describe him. While Ben is an experienced trial lawyer who holds an AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell, it takes much more than technical proficiency to be an effective family law attorney. A quality family law attorney must also be able to understand his clients’ problems and to understand the emotional and human nature of the issues faced by people going through a family crisis. At the same time, however, a good attorney navigates the most direct path to a fair resolution of his client’s case. Ben possesses a tremendous ability to be simultaneously understanding and effective.
