I hired this firm 3 yrs ago the day after I was rear ended.
They were quick to respond but downhill after that. I was rear ended at a stop light.
My wife was driving and my 81 year old mother in law was in the back seat.
Court dates were set 4 times and passed by.Finally 3 years and 1 day from the date of the accident it goes to court.
day of court there was no pre meeting with lawyer just go in and pick a jury. the most important thing to make clear was to show that the person who rear ended us was at faul ( an open shut case in texas right?...think again)
my attorney (Lucas) from Bens firm concentrated on the amount of money and proving how it effected our lives instead fo putting the horse before the cart and proving they were at fault because we were stopped at a stop light a car in front of us and a culdran on our left side no where to go and could see the car coming and driver looking off to her left only to notice us as she looked up and hit us.
her attorney lied and had her to lie on the stand making it look like we were traveling and we suddenly stopped, our attorney made no attept to show the truth WE WERE STOPPED. anyways they found her not neglegant and so there was no award. now we get the 40,000 bills sent to us and Ben would not even appeal it,. We were just screwed by the people we trusted most..Ben Abbotts Firm!!!!

My son was injured when a car drove thru his daycare during nap time. I heard is commercials on the radio & decided to call & see if I had a case. Someone from their office came out and signed my son up the same day. My case manager Blanca was so helpful and so was her assistant Maria they answered allnmy questions. They settled with the insurance company making sure I was satisfied.

I and my husband hired this law firm. For an auto accident almost 3years ago Im suffering from the injuries I have permanently. Mr Abbott firm lost our trial due to misrepresentation and lack of communication. We never met the attorney that handeled our case. After we signed all attention immediately stop. A different person with every call who they randomly chose to address our concerns not only about our case. But also the treatment they gave us once we we're locked in contract. Run from this firm as fast as you can. I tried several times to be released,only to be handeled like the I was the defendant in the case by the very attorneys that are supposed be representing us. Very rude and disrespectful. When asked to provide answers we got the run around. We had police report even the adjuster found there client liable. Yet this law firm did not defend us. Nor did they do anything to assist us. Or defend us or the integrity of a solid case. Instead they sent an inexperienced attorney up against the defendants 20 year tenure attorney who absolutely twisted the very things that were credible to our case to there advantage. Without an objection of any kind. And if your looking to get any word or meeting with Mr. Abbott. They immediately block those request and throw you a stand in. I have never felt so disgusted and degraded. Pick someone else or handle your case your self. Save yourself the agony the additional hurt, disappointment. This so called law firm will cause. Thank you for three years of regret. And a life lesson I'll never forget. I give this law firm no stars but the page made me select at least one to post this warning to unknowing others.

I had an accident in a store and contacted this office to help me. They sent someone out when I gave them a time my husband would be home since I had a concussion they came out early it was some kid that was barely wet behind the ears. He had me sign some papers didn't explain anything never gave me any copies and that was just the start of it. After weeks of the run around never speaking to the 'lawyer' that was representing me being told I was going to be sent to doctors and never getting into one my injuries are worse. When I asked for a copy of what I signed they sent me one page when I signed more than 4 pages. We needless to say fired this firm and went elsewhere yet even after doing so with my settlement they ended up with money from my settlement and having never done a thing for my case my husband and I did all the work. I would highly recommend not hiring or even contacting this office. Worse experience than my injury.

My wife & I were leaving the grocery store, as we backed up to leave another driver slammed into the back of us. We were already out of the parking spot when the guy hit us. We hired Ben Abbott & his staff to handle our case. After 2 years of hard work on their end our case was settled. We couldnt be happier with our choice of attorneys.

Ben Abbott and his great team have handled 3 cases for me. My 1st case was Sept 09, I was hit by a car as I was walking out of a dept store. I orginially hired another attorney but when they dropped my case I called The Law Office of Ben Abbott. When I was injured in as finder binder the in May 2011 I hired Ben & his team again. My second case was a great experience with this firm they settled my case in less than a year. So I had no choice but to rehire them again in Feb 2012 when I was involved in another car accident. I would not use any other attorney.

On a rainy afternoon I was involved in an auto accident when an impatient driver pulled out a parking lot crossing 3 lanes of traffic causing me to hit him. After calling around to several attorneys that denied to take the case I called Ben Abbott. It took a little over a year to settle my case.

I was hit when a driver side swiped my car and fled the scene. The police did come and wrote a report of the accident. I contacted a family friend who suggested The Law Office of Ben Abbott. It took almost 2 years but it finally settled with great results. Thanks to Ben Abbot & all his staff.

I was involved in a car accident when another driver made an unsafe lane change hitting my vehicle. I hired The Law Office of Ben Abbott to help with my case and then I changed my mind.

When I was driving home from work I was hit from behind by a speeding driver. I didn't think I was hurt until the next day my body felt sore. I called the other drivers insurance company but they gave me a really hard time. A passenger in my car suggested we hire a lawyer. It took this firm a year and a half to settle our case but it was worth the wait. Thank you.

I was hurt in an accident over a year ago when a lady backed out of a parking space hitting my car. I was hurt and went to the doctor someone suggested hiring an attorney. I called Ben Abbot and they began working on my case right away. After 15 months my case was settled with my medical bills paid and money in my pocket for pain and suffering. Thanks Ben Abbott.

Niles Illich is an attorney at the Law Office of Ben Abbot, he was very profession in our dealings. He was very prompt in returning all calls, and always did exactly as he promised he would do.

While I was on my way to work I was involved in a car accident. I had the right of way when another driver failed to yield causing us to wreck. I was hurt, my car was totaled and I didnt have the best insurance coverage, but it wasnt my fault either. A family friend referred me to call The Law Office of Ben Abbott, the best choice I made in regards to this accident. My case was settled in 5 months with exciting results and everyone satisfied. Thanks for the hard work, quick response, and great results of my case.

I have known Ben for years as a fellow counselor. Since he became actively involved in taking his cases to the Courthouse, the entire value of plaintiff cases has increased tenfold. Ben is a hard working, driven attorney who represents his clients by utilizing every avenue of the law. He knows when "to fight" and when to "settle".

Me,my wife, & kids were involved in a car accident when another driver fell asleep behind the wheel losing control & hitting us. My wife & children were taken to the hospital right away by ambulance. I hired a previous attorney Jim Adler and after months of work his office quit on my case. I then hired Ben Abbott & his successful team of employees to handle my case. In less than a year he settled with the insurance company for the best offer he could get. My family & i am very thankful for all their hard work.

Ben Abbott is the best lawyer around because as soon as I told him about my accident with my motorcycle he got right to it and just a year later won my case winning me money in my pocket and all medical bills taken care of this is why I would recommend him because he does what he says he going to do

I was re-ended on the highway. A friend of mine had used Ben Abbot before and was very pleased. The staff at Ben Abbott immediately referred me to a chiropractor and even set up my first appointment. The staff was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. My case settled within 8 months. All my doctor bills were payed and I was very happy with the amount I got in my pocket. I would recommend this attorney!

I was hit in a head on accident. The guy ran a red light & hit me, we had the same insurance company which made it hard to fight for my rights. The claims were denied & I needed medical treatment. With no where else to turn I called this firm. They started on my case right away. My case was settled before it even made it to trial. My car was fixed, my medical bills were paid & so was I. I was very pleased & satisified with there dedication & hard work on my case.

After 1.5 years of waiting and no contact I call and am told were working on the case and we have had offers from the insurance (if so I was not contacted once about the mysterious offers). I became curious and contacted the insurance claim rep and not only have there been NO offers of a settlement, no where in their system do they show any record of being contacted by a lawyer on my behalf! Meanwhile we are being evicted because we have lost 60,000+ in wages waiting for nothing. Thanks Ben Abbott!
