David Benson has a calming and reasurring countenance and presence. Blessed with excellent listening skills, a quick wit and sense of humour, and a razor sharp mind with a broad knowledge of so many different aspects of law. One is in good hands with this attorney. Attorney Benson has a brilliant mind and can solve any problem with precise and quick thinking. He possesses Integrity, honesty, promptness, accessibility, kindness, empathy, knowledge, a conscientious nature, and is also very approachable at the same time. I would recommend David M. Benson to anyone I know. He has given me advice in so many different areas of law and has always been right. I trust him explicitly.
Attorney David Michael Benson is truly one of a kind. As a client I can say that Attorney Benson is trustworthy, well informed and kind. Another great thing about Attorney Benson is that he returns all phone calls in a very timely manner, he also responds to emails and snail mail. These are the signs of a great attorney. A benefit for anyone that retains Attorney Benson would be peace of mind!! I would and I do strongly recommend Attorney David M. Benson to handle your legal needs.
I cannot recommend Mr. Benson highly enough. He has provided excellent advice to my business for over a year. He returns calls promptly and provides accurate, salient advice.
David helped me through the difficult process of declaring chapter 7 bankruptcy. I don't know how I would have managed without him. I was scared to death about the whole thing, but I knew I could rely on him to protect me from the worst of it. He let me know when I could relax and when to be nervous about the process, as well as guiding me through the nuts and bolts. David returns calls and e-mails, even when he is busy, and he is personable and retains a good sense of humor. His advice and decisions showed consistently that he succeeded in walking the line between protecting me as a client and serving as an officer of the court. In other words, I knew I was dealing with an honest man who would do all he could do to serve my interests while upholding his obligations to the law and to the court. David knows the ropes--he's been inside this process for a while now. When I had trouble filling out some of the endless forms and questionnaires, he could tell me when a bit of information was or was not important, which was a lifesaver when I had to dig among moving boxes in search of an obscure financial record (I had just moved when I was preparing to file). When we had our interview with a representative of the court to review my documents, I was really glad David was there as my advocate, because I trusted his judgment. He knew when to say something and when to stay quiet and let the trustee make his own conclusions.
I also had David draw up my will. I admire his preparatory questionnaire: it's elegantly written. This reflects a lot about David: he's extremely intelligent, well-read, and a fluent speaker and writer.
In my experience, David is a superior attorney. I'd recommend him to anyone.
I spoke with David about potential bankruptcy. He is realistic, thorough, and his advice was timely. Because I could not file in Ohio where he practices, I counted on him to recommend a lawyer where I live. He did so promptly and connected me to an excellent firm.
We have hired Mr. Benson several times to assist in legal matters. He constructed a will and a power of attorney for my husband and I and helped to resolve a landlord dispute. We were impressed Mr. Benson's professionalism and attention to detail. In addition, we really liked that Mr. Benson took the time to explain complicated issues and kept us informed about any changes to our file. He makes an intimidating process easy to understand and that is why I recommend him to family and friends.
