After taking horrible advice from an apathetic attorney who cared only about money, I took a plea deal because I had no options. Faced with a lack of funds, I couldn't pay my restitution so I found myself on the receiving end of a felony probation revocation hearing with an angry victim and facing 2 years. I called Ben less than 12 hours before I was to appear in court, and he picked up on the first ring.
Taking this as a good sign, I hired Ben to help me. He showed up on time and fully prepared even though I wasn't able to give him much information. Thanks to Ben, my probation wasn't revoked, the victim & prosecutor were happy and Ben even got me a favorable nod from the judge. I'm forever grateful that I am with my family right now because I could be behind bars.

I was scared to death. I did something very ignorant and I did not know what to do. I was caught concealing merchandise at a local Kohl s. This was my second charge for Theft in ten years. The first when I was young. I also have a few other misdemeanors.I scrambled to search for an attorney. I had some bad experiences with a couple attorneys i retained in the past. I researched and talked to over ten attorneys regarding this case. Each had their own advice. Ben Luftman was the most realistic and caring attorney who talked to me. He heard everything I had to say,did not rush off the phone,and was sincerely concerned with my concerns. He was always quick to contact me back and was very clear about the agreement and possible outcomes. His staff at his office was always polite and professional. Mr. Sabol actually represented me. He was God send. He was very confident and came prepared. He eased my fears and was so nice. They made a resolution to my case in only two dates. Which was very quick. My charge was dropped to a second degree misdemeanor of attempt with no jail time or probation of any kind. That was was phenomenal. That was a better resolution than I thought I would get. I am so happy that these guys are actually out there and helping people like me and has given us a second chance. I will never use another criminal attorney in Columbus or surrounding area. They are worth every penny and priced very competitively. I also get to keep my MA certification because of them as well. I recommend them to everyone I know. Thank you guys for all your hard work. You guys made my Holiday brighter.

For 3 years, I had warrants out for my arrest for charges that I had committed before I hired Mr. Luftman. The Franklin County Prosecutor had put out a press release, and I was on the news for not responding or showing up for my court hearings and drug tests, and had been dodging turning myself in because of the severity of how they were treating my case. It had been three years since I committed those crimes, and I looked up attorneys in Franklin County and found great reviews for Mr. luftman, so I called him. Within 6 months, he had taken care of everything. I had to go into court only once, and I didn't even go in front of the judge, he did everything. I thought I would have had at least fines, or probation coming out of the courtroom, but Mr. Luftman had gotten all of my charges dropped except for one( which I can get removed from my record in a year) I had no fines to pay, no reporting, no drug tests, no jail time. I highly recommend this attorney, as he followed through with all his promises, and made me feel very comfortable about what would happen before I went to the courthouse. His services are money well spent.

DUI Drama!! Yes, I was arrested in March of 2013, and charged with a DUI. I have never been in this situation before and did not know what to do, so I did what I know best, “Google” searched it. I was directed to a website for DUI Lawyers, typed in my information, and within five minutes received a call from Attorney Benjamin Luftman. I explained to him what had happened and from day one he was very friendly and helpful.
I drive extensively for both of my jobs, so right off the bat I was told by Attorney Benjamin Luftman, “the first thing we are going to do is get your license back”. Wow, was he correct!! He was on the phone with the Prosecutor, got my court day pushed up tremendously, and had me out of this mess within a few weeks.
To make a long story somewhat short, Benjamin was able to get my DUI dropped to “physical control”, that’s a zero point traffic ticket, I had my driver’s license back within two weeks of the incident and I had to go to a Drivers Intervention Program (DIP), for three days in lieu of a (30) day jail sentence. Even though I have never had this problem, during DIP, I learned just how amazing of a lawyer I hired. There were 21 people in the DIP class and out of the 21 people, I was the only one that had received my license back (not just driving privileges), the only one with a physical control (not reckless op-a four point traffic violation), and the only one who was able to put this entire problem behind me within five weeks of my arrest. Needless to say, at least 75% of the people in the DIP class had hired a lawyer, but not any of them had their driver’s license back, they just had driving privileges and all of them had received the four point reckless op violation.
I don’t know much about the law, but what I do know is that I had an awesome lawyer. I strongly recommend this law firm if you want the “drama”, quickly behind so that you can move forward.
Thank you very much, Attorney Benjamin Luftman and your firm for all your help.
Sincerely, a single mother, hard worker, and honorable citizen again, thanks to you!!!!

Benjamin Luftman and staff helped with my traffic/criminal case from start to finish (I even received a personal follow up call regarding the health of a family member I had mentioned weeks before the case was resolved). My case was continued many times and the staff and all attorneys involved were willing to take the time it took to properly resolve my case. In the end, the hard work and time payed off, I saved my career and my dignity knowing that many charges were put behind me. Constant updates by email and phone were much obliged, this kept my case private. A flat rate cost also had me resting assured that the hours worked were never piling up into a bill I couldn't afford. Ultimately, Mr. Luftman was professional, efficient and affordable. I would hope that we would never have to do business again, but wouldn't hesitate to call for help. When there's many attorneys to choose from and only a few to trust be sure to at least give these guys a shot, I can promise they won't dissapoint.
