    Ben and I worked together on a matter. He got a great result and attention to detail and follow up in protecting the client's interest is outstanding. I would recommend Ben for criminal counsel.

  • Joseph Jerome Long

    I have known Ben his whole legal career. Intellectually curious, diligent and honest are some of his qualities that immediately come to mind. Ben will treat you like you are his best client, and that's hard to do when you have a thriving practice like he does. He is always prepared, works tirelessly for your best outcome and is well respected in the legal community. I highly recommend this lawyer.
