We found Ben in an online search for a startup lawyer. We met with Ben and were immediately surprised how comfortable he was to speak with. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and a fast worker, which translates into affordable law services. With industry standards in the $300 an hour range, Ben's $200 an hour range is exceptional. Ben helped our startup incorporate, secure health insurance, negotiate employee contracts, NDA's, and more. Ben isn't just our Lawyer, he's a friend. He's available to bounce ideas off as are the rest of his team. The folks at Ben's firm SNS are young and well-informed and interested in the success and growth of your business.
Ben helped me as I went through the process of acquiring a dental practice. I had very little experience working with attorneys prior to this so I didn't really know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised with my experience working with Ben and the team at Slinde Nelson. What I noticed most was Ben's attention to detail and focus. I would not hesitate to recommend Ben Stoller to a colleague or friend.
Ben & his team have done an excellent job helping us make decisions for how to grow and protect our company. Having smart people around you, people who can keep you on track, find solutions and avoid problems BEFORE THEY HAPPEN is top priority.
This year we worked intensively with Ben to secure our virtual and intellectual properties. All the licensing and agreements which Ben helped us draft took hours and hours of consideration, planning and research.
The hard work paid off with our company having a very successful year as well as huge roll out into 2012 beyond.
Specifically, Ben went the extra miles to understand our business needs and goals and because of that he ALWAYS brings something valuable to the table.
Work Great People Like Ben Stoller!
My case just started but, as I told Ben himself a couple of times, he is "literally" redeeming the word "lawyer" in my book. He has been responsive, knowledgeable and honest about my case, even though we know it is a small case, and will not make anyone a millionaire.
So far, I would recommend Ben Stoller and the team at Slinde Nelson anytime. I hope it continues like this and can make these same comments after winning my case (wink)...I have confidence I will.
Ben used to work as a graphic designer, and so he was very knowledgeable and helpful to me when I formed and LLC and had him review my standard client contracts.
He legally clarified the language in my contracts without turning them into super verbose mumbo-jumbo (which both my clients and I are very happy about).
Also, since he has experience on the other side of the lawyering table, he is very clear about when he is/isn't billing and absolutely refuses to sneakily charge for brief phone calls and emails.
His attitude is along the lines of "there will be plenty of time for me to make money off you as your business grows", which I think is the perfect attitude for my lawyer to have---he wants to be in it with me for the long haul rather than just a few overpriced, unproductive meetings.
Ben works with a lot of small businesses and start ups, and he was adamant that I provide him with some promotional material about my information design company so he could pass it along to some of his other clients.
I've already referred him to friends of mine who are looking to get their businesses in legal order.
