Ben was always responsive, helpful and helped me to see things from the bigger picture / long term so that all decisions were made with my kids welfare first and foremost. He was always honest with what I should / could expect, whether or not it benefited me. And there were times when I was "rattled" and he would calm me down by explaining what was legally going on and what things meant; always giving me various options and detailing what outcomes each option could lead to. He was never cut throat or deceitful....quite the opposite; he always conducted himself with dignity and integrity in his dealings with me and the opposing party. Divorce / custody disagreements can be very emotional and confusing and Ben helped me make cost effective, wise choices with my children and their well being at the heart of every decision. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who is facing the decision to divorce, especially if children are involved.

We got the news that she was moving the kids to another state and quickly wanted to get legal representation so as not to lose them. We contacted Ben and he was more than efficient and knowledgeable. He got right on everything and we were very surprised to see that he was able to do all that he said that he would.
For our specific situation we thought that we would be moving and so we negotiated everything as such. And Ben made sure that we got everything that we asked for and some. Our child support payments were reduced, visitation was increased dramatically, and custody was enhanced!!
We would recommend him to any family that needs courteous, prompt, honest, and truly knowledgeable council from a family man.
He understands and works hard to make sure that the ball is in your court, or at least played fairly.

I highly recommend Benjamin. He is knowledgeable, trustworthy, keeps me informed and makes me feel secure during my divorce/ custody process.

There is a genuiness and humbleness about Mr. Porter...
He is somewhat soft spoken, that seemingly works to his advantage and adds to his character. I found him to be quite knowledgeable as well as well-veresed! He didn't feel like a lawyer- I didn't feel like a client! We shared sympathy, empathy, and a few good laughs like a couple of old buds. I really enjoyed our conversations and the time we shared together, you truly feel like your working together and that he's not just working for you; nor that your just a paycheck and not a person! I would recommend him in a heartbeat! Every situation differs but he is accustomed. I trust him to get the job done. I feel like he's family. Who knows, maybe we're distant cousins! Money well earned, money well spent... You cannot put a price on children, you cannot put a price on piece of mind, and you cannot put a price on LOVE! Thank you sir, you truly are a blessing! I pray over your family, your business, and the many families you will help! Peace, joy, love!

I hired Mr Porter to be my lawyer during my divorce in 2011, at the time I was going through medical school and hardly had time to deal with the school, raising a child as a single mum (since my ex-husband and I were separated at the time), and deal with divorce. Mr Porter was very professional and kind, he took up the case whole heartedly and did far beyond what I expected, he handled all the communications between my ex-husband and I, he kept me uptodate with every detail of the case, helped collect all the information needed at the court, really worked hard. I moved out of state before the final ruling and he handled all that was needed to be done. Am very pleased to have had Mr Porter as my lawyer, I truly believed God saw what I had to deal with and led me to a trustworthy hardworking person so I'd not get a breakdown. He is a great lawyer and I'd recommend him to anybody. All I can say is thank you Mr Porter!!

Please do not hire this lawyer. Benjamin Porter made such a mess of my case before and during trial that I lost everything - children, home and money. He kept mixing up my case information and mis-filed several important facts over and over. By the time I found out his bad this lawyer was, it was too late because we had missed the filing dates. Benjamin Porter is unreliable, and did not return my emails or calls for days at a time. I wish I had never hired this lawyer. I am starting to think that the good reviews here and elsewhere are not genuine because I don't see how he can get more than the 1 star based on my experience. I am going to file a formal complaint with the state licensing department as well as the Georgia Bar. I hope that other people can benefit from my bad experience with Benjamin Porter. Avoid this lawyer at all costs.

After dealing with a terrible attorney during my divorce, I hired Ben to handle some post divorce issues. I could not believe how much more professional Ben was compared to my prior attorney. He was quick to return phone calls, charged a fair price, and handled my situation with ease. Most importantly, he handled my case with compassion. I highly recommend Ben to anyone in need of a good divorce attorney.

Excellent lawyer. He was very well prepared for my case at each hearing. He was knowledgeable and organized. I would highly recommend him for anyone needing legal support for custody of children.

Given the unfortunate circumstances of my divorce, Ben was patient, informative, compassionate, and very knowledgeable of the process.

A friend referred me and I have already referred the firm to a friend because my lawyer is very knowledgeable when it comes to what one should ask for and might get out of a divorce.
