  • Andrew J Driggs

    I have seen Ben work in the Criminal courts in Las Vegas and I can attest to his high skills in that area. He also helps immigration clients, and has keen insights into the consequences of any criminal activity on their immigration status or prospects. If you have any sort of criminal history at all and are thinking of starting an immigration process, you would be very smart to first call Ben Durham. More than any other issue, criminal arrests can sink any immigration case. Call Ben first.

    I have known Mr. Durham for many years. As a former prosecutor, I have also been opposing counsel against him on several occasions. Ben is always well prepared, has great knowledge of the law and fights endlessly for his clients. He is a tremendous asset to the criminal defense bar.
