Mr.Benjamin is very co-operative , down to earth and very patient person. Here is our case information. During Nov-2012, I was charged with a petty theft offence and misdemeanor case. I am staying in US on a dependent visa .(Any such cases will have serious impact for Immigration and job search in US). We were looking for a affordable & good criminal attorney, who can solve this case with no impact to criminal & immigration status.we found him through internet search. we have explained all case details to Ben and he listened to case details very carefully and gave us enough confidence to get out of this case. While this case was in progress, unfortunately I was charged with 2nd petty theft & misdemeanor offence after a month. it was a disaster incident. If I plead guilty for both or even one cases then this will have serious impact of criminal offence and i will be deported from US as well. In this situation we were really in serious trouble & scared of this case and its very serious impact. With this kind of situation, Mr.Ben really really did a fantastic job to dismiss both cases on May-15-2013. It was a great relief for us.
After 2nd case, Mr. Ben was very kind for not even asking for extra money and started working on both cases simultaneously. we paid money for 2nd case only few days before final verdict. This clearly shows that Mr.Ben pays attention for client's problem rather than working for just money. I strongly recommend Mr. Ben as criminal defense attorney and i am sure he will get excellent result for complicated cases as well.

Benjamin reviewed and examined all the information regarding my son's case prior to even taking it. He spent a lot of time gathering information to give me a reasonable consultation for his proposed plan of action which we discussed several times before we set a contract. He was concerned and helpful with all of his dealings with me. His guidance was true. His fees were reasonable. There were delays in getting my son's case on the docket related to court scheduling but the end result was that my son was released from prison without parole or restitution and is now back with his family, a free man. Benjamin was helpful with guidance about content for the letters of support we needed to write for the judge and he was alway supportive to myself and my son all along the way. Due to the delays in court, our relationship was over 7 months. He was very personable bur professional. Thank you, Benjamin, for reuniting our family. Thank you for helping to pave the way.

Ben came as a recommendation from a neighbor and I couldn't be happier with the service he provided. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional and he knew the courts really well (even all the way up in Los Angeles). He was very honest with his pricing and he delivered the result that I was hoping for. Also, the guy is really good at playing hockey!

Ben is by far the best attorney San Diego has seen. This man will go completely out of his way to help you out without asking for a dollar. I had referred my girlfriend to him who got a dui and got cited for driving with a suspended license. I don't know what Ben did but he got the complete case dropped. He is also the only attorney I know that keeps it real with the client. If he knows its not worth it to hire him he will let you know and give you advise without a charge. Without Ben I would probably be in jail. He is my attorney for life from now on.
