  • Brandon Buchanan

    As a practicing bankruptcy attorney, if I have questions about the law, Ben is the first person I go to for help and advice. I would not have been able to start my own practice if not for his guidance. Ben is not only extremely knowledgeable about the the law, he also cares about and listens to his clients. Unlike some attorneys, Ben treats his clients like people with real needs, not numbers on a spreadsheet.
