Posted by Angie
My custody battle raged on for 2+ years and involved a history of abuse and two children with special needs: one with autism, the other with a severe hearing impairment.
I hired Jason after a year of outrageous legal bills and no resolution from my original attorney.
Jason immediately orchestrated mediation which resulted in a final parenting plan, a feat my previous lawyer was unable to accomplish.
Within a month of signing, the final parenting plan required modification because my ex would not follow it and was harming our autistic son. Jason fought hard over 9-months to show cause and then successfully modified the parenting plan without trial.
I'm not going to say it was 100% smooth-sailing. That would be unrealistic. He's hard to get a hold of which can be stressful and annoying BUT it's outweighed by his overall professionalism, respectfulness, sense of humor, ability to prevail on all major points and a flat-rate billing paradigm.
There were plenty of moments, I expressed frustrations about the process, his practice, and the slower than a slug's pace that things get accomplished in family law. He took it all in stride and understands his chosen profession is a stressful hot mess.
Over two years, I watched plenty of lawyers in action while waiting my turn in a courtroom. I never once wished one of them was my lawyer instead of Jason. He's a good choice and I will hire Jason again if my case flares up. (knock-on wood that won't be necessary).
Note to parents of children with autism spectrum disorder: My original attorney has an ASD child. Don't be fooled while searching. She understood my situation but failed to convey it to the court.
Jason learned a ton working with us, understands the complexities involved in family law and special needs, and has the connections you'll need. He fought a good, clean fight and won the battle for my autistic son's chance at an independent future. For that I am grateful.

Jason is an excellent lawyer who handled my family law case with confidence and integrity. I needed someone with expertise in cases involving military service members and was not disappointed. Jason immediately got to work on my case, wasting no time. He is concise, professional, and returns correspondence in a reasonable time frame. His legal staff and partners are top notch, especially Melissa and Hayley, who exceeded my expectations in answering my questions so calmly and professionally during a very high stress period in my life.
The legal fees were nominal in light of the exceptional service this law office provides. He was able to help me resolve a high conflict case without having to bring it into a full on trial, saving me legal fees, time, and stress.
I'm very grateful to Jason and everyone in his office who ensured the safety and future well-being of my children and myself, and I highly recommend him to anyone in a family law situation.

I highly recommend Jason Benjamin.
Jason Benjamin was my second attorney. My case was high-conflict and going nowhere. After doing some research, I thankfully I found Jason. As soon as I hired Jason, he immediately got right to the issues at stake and took action. He righted the wrongs in the case and then succeeded in getting me a fair settlement. What’s more, Jason continued to make sure the final Order was abided by.
Jason is intelligent and professional. He does not mince words; he will tell you exactly where your case stands and then go to bat for you. He is not afraid to go to court and will do so when warranted.
I am very Thankful to Jason and his staff. Jason went the extra mile and his representation has made a world of difference to my family. We could not be more pleased.
Again, I highly recommend Jason Benjamin. This is the attorney you want on your side from the start.

This was a last minute call as I needed someone quickly to represent me for a default motion. He pretty much saved my case. Highly reliable, and very easy to talk to. I would strongly recommend him.

My name is Lindsey. For the past 2 years I have had a very heart wrenching and ugly on-going custody battle over the care of my four year old son. I didn’t have much luck in the first year, but to my advantage, I met Jason. I have had a total of four lawyers throughout my battle, and Jason is the only lawyer that has really fought for me. He gives me brutal honesty and he does not give up. He is extremely knowledgeable about the entire family law system, and I recommend him to any person struggling through this. Jason is very responsive, intelligent, and gave me a very hopeful feeling. Above all, and most importantly, he can be trusted. I’m very thankful that he is on my side, and I am confident that he will not give up on my case.

I hired jason for several family law issues including modification of child support, order of protection, parenting plan and dissolution of marriage. Not only has he been absolutely amazing, tactful and completely professional , he has given me confidence and amazing support. I have had many other consultations in the past regarding my legal issues and i knew as soon as i had my consultation, Mr. Benjamin was the attorney, hands down with no question, for me. His assistant melissa is also amazing, helpful and condiserate through this hard time. I would refer Mr. Benjamin to ANY person who is going through any family dispute. Thank you jason and melissa!!!!!

I have been fighting a miserable divorse and custody case for 3 years. Every other attorney I have had, did not understand the complexity of my situation and didn't care. After hiring Jason for a horrible trial my ex wife filed to take visitation from myself and our 17yo daughter, he was able to read the most important documents out of several thousand pages and determine the best way to approach the trial in just a few short days. The trial was the best win for myself and more importantly my teenage daughters.
Of course Jason charged for the trial, the amount was no where near the nearly $70000 it has cost to get to this point and with much less impressive results.
I would, without hesitation, recommend Jason to anyone that asks about a family law attorney.

I know it sounds sweet...he's gonna take your $3500 on a flat fee, and promise the moon. However, once he gets your money, he will take WEEKS to return your calls. He has 70 other cases he's dealing with (straight from his mouth), he doesn't know the details about your case, rest assured. He's got an ego bigger than any room he walks into. He will file your legal documentation late....yeah, the same stuff you were calling him on for weeks to get done...smh. Hiring Jason Benjamin to fight for my kids was the BIGGEST waste of my family's money! Much more to write, but don't have the energy, as I am still knee deep in a custody battle.
No respect for Jason Benjamin as a lawyer or as a man!

I am writing this review prior to the last court date I have. It's a bit premature but I trust in the outcome due to having worked with him for just under a year. I am in a custody battle with my ex and this entire time Jason has been through it with me.
So here are the facts
He's a shark in the court room, he doesn't like the term but it fits, he goes in for the kill
He can remember and spout out details you told him months prior
He doesn't waste time with anything that won't help your case..which means your time isn't wasted
He won't lie to you, if you need to worry about something he will tell you, otherwise relax and he will stress for you
I read some of the prior reviews before posting this and had to laugh. If your an educated person you'd notice that the terminology used in those posts sound very much like a paralegal or lawyer...hmm now why would another lawyer write bad reviews on their competition? But then again it wouldn't surprise me if Jason had killed them in court .
Overall as I have been doing currently to friends I continue to recommend Jason to anyone seeking a Lawyer who should be paid more than he charges his client for the work put in.
