Do not look for others and see Jason! My best recommendation !He is the only competent lawyer who I can trust and believe. I hope others see Jason first. Then you made the right choice with your case! If Jason takes your case and at the end of your case, you will come back and write a review like me thanking Jason. You will feel that you can not help recommending him!
I cannot thank enough Jason for what he did for my divorce and relocation with child case.
Jason is very honest person. He knows people who were in abusive relationship have limited access to money and he stayed in what he initially promised. I feel Jason has his philosophy to stand by justice. He is ethical and does not go after money.
He has almost 20year experience and his schedule is so busy. However, he does what is needed for
your case on time always. He is responsible and time efficient. I was able to relax because I know he wiill reach me first if he needs to see me. I will continue keeping Jason on my side since he is the best . If it were not Jason, I could not afford this difficult divorce. Even my ex who tried hard lying, increasing lawyer fee by all means , threatening me, Jason was there to support me and he truly told me what I can expect. What he say is the truth. Even other lawyers tell me my relocation with child is not easy, Jason simply said honestly outcome and he actually got me custody and relocation! I appreciate he tell me the truth. I believe him. is He saved my time and money.
I also felt the fact that Jason is my attorney itself has power. Opposing party changes attitude after hiring Jason. It must be his reputation.
I recommend you go make an appointment with Jason first. Trust me and you will not regret.

We needed an attorney in Tacoma, WA. I met with several lawyers and all of them wanted a HUGE retainer because they 'knew about these matters' and this would 'take some time' and probably about 12K. Attorney Benjamin met with us, he was hired a few hours later and we had the children in our custody w/in 24 hours. HIRE HIM TO HANDLE YOUR CUSTODY MATTER.

We hired Jason for our child custody case for my husband and I am h e used him on two separate occasions. He is amazing! He took the information and facts about our situation and had our sons best interest at hand at all times. He is worth every penny and we would recommend him to anyone fighting for their child's well being!

Jason Benjamin is an excellent lawyer, and you definitely want him on your side during a bitter child custody dispute. My ex-husband and I could not agree on anything having to do with our daughter, on top of the fact he had withheld her for over a year. I reside on the East Coast, my ex-husband is in Spanaway. Mr. Benjamin was able to show the court that I was the parent more capable of sharing her in the future. If there's a flaw, he'll find it and prepare his case around them. I still retain Jason since my ex hired a new lawyer with the intent to appeal. Jason is upfront, honest and has a heart of gold. He fights for the right of his clients!

Mr. Benjamin is the most unethical attorney I have ever had to work with in the 12 years I have been in family law. He badgers opposing parties and lies through his teeth to get what he wants, not matter who it hurts. When an attorney tells opposing counsel that you are going to "Bury their client" is the most outrageous statment I have ever heard. I would not let him represent my dog.

This is my second time to work with Jason and my family really liked the way he worked with me on my first case. He would work with you on holidays or after work hours to get things done. I am a Filipino living here in WA without any family and Jason made me feel confident by doing an awesome job taking my son back in my custody. He has an excellent knowledge, experiences and strategies on custody battle. I believe in him and that he would do a great job in handling my divorce.

Jason was a great attorney! I'm a father who was looking to get custody of my daughter and Jason made it happen. I now have custody of her and am able to move on with life. People always say that WA is a "Mother state" but not with Jason Benjamin in your corner. He took all of the stress out of the custody process. Jason is well organized, informative and very aggressive. Any father that would fight to have their child(ren) should Definitely give Jason a call.

I have been working with Jason for the last two years. First on my divorce and custody hearing and now for relocation and modifying my parenting plan. He has always had my daughters best interest at heart and fought hard to protect her safety. He has done an amazing job with both of my cases and I'm extremely happy with the work he's done! You definitely want him representing you.

I am coming out of a terrible marriage and didn’t know what to expect. I went to the JAG office and got a printout of lawyers they recommend. After doing research on the net I came across the reviews on Jason. I have to say that I am grateful to have him and his team working with me. Jason is very affordable and goes above and beyond to make sure everything is done not only for my best interest but also for my son and his best interest. I communicate with Jason and his office on a daily basis. His team is very professional and patient with me through hard time. At first I was nervous when I met Jason for a consultation but after talking to him I was more at ease and was very confident he would do his best. Jason did a great job at my temporary hearing and I know he will do an amazing job at my final hearing. He and his staff work very hard for me. Jason told me up front the pro’s and con’s that could come out of this case. He told me that it would be work on my part as well and made me feel part of the team. For that I am very grateful. I don’t feel like I am kept out of the loop because of the constant communication. I truly feel that I am getting more than what I paid for which is awesome for me. Jason knows a lot about the law and will find everything he can that will work in my case. Jason is very easy to talk to if I have a question. Jason takes each case very seriously and shows his hard work and dedication every time. He worked hard to keep me where I live now with my son and made sure we were safe again. He managed to accomplish that within a few hours of me meeting him to discuss my case. He cares very much about the well-being of children involved in cases such as mind and makes it appoint to find the best solution. Words cannot express my gratitude or how thankful I am to have a lawyer like Jason and his team on my side. I definitely recommend Jason to represent you during a tough time. I believe you will get more from him and his staff then what you paid for. He and his staff are truly worth it. I recommend meeting Jason and see what he can do for you.

My family has been going through some terrible child custody battles and I have many unaswered questions. I wrote my problem on the website and asked just to speak to Mr. Benjamin. Within minutes of sending the email, he called me and spent a good part of a half hour talking to me. He answered every question that I shot at him. I would hire this man with all confidence that he would get results thatI wanted from him. Thank God there are attorneys like this!
Posted by whatmedo, a Child Custody client, Flag
Mr. Benjamin not only carries himself with a certain type of confidence, he passes that confidence onto his clients, and rightfully so. Cool collected and always in control Mr. Benjamin will fight for you and your loved ones. Unlike many other attorneys I have dealt with in the past, when in Jason’s presence I do not feel like a dollar amount but a person he actually cares about helping.
Thank you Mr. Benjamin you are making a real difference in my life and the life of my children.

I had my exhusband serve me with papers from his attorney to move out & sell are home, that we purchased together while married, on my son's 18th birthday. Jason saw me about this issue and told me to write his attorney a letter about are financial debts we still owed to IRS and my exhusbands child support bill that hadn't been paid in 3 years and back property taxes owed of 33 thousand dollars. So I did what Jason said and sure enough I recieved a letter from my exhusbands attorney in about 2-3 weeks telling me he was not going to represent my exhusband and was no longer to be informed of any issues reguarding the two of us. Jason futher more told me if the letter didn't work to get back with him about it. I saved a lot of money just talking to Jason about it at a free console. I had spoke to another attorney previously about the same issue and that attorney wanted $500 to write a letter and a $3,500 retainer to go any further after the letter. So in my opinion Jason is very honest, upfront and knowledgeable. I would hire him in the future if needed, and will highly refer him to anybody looking for services he offers. I have worked with many attorney's in the past, and think Jason rates A+++

Jason was fabulous with my case. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a family law attorney. He knows the law and works diligently for his clients. My case was fairly complex with many different things to consider, it wasn't a typical divorce. His fees were fair and he stayed within the price quoted initially. He and his staff are friendly. My only complaint is it can be difficult to reach him sometimes due to his incredibly busy schedule. However, I am completely happy with the outcome. I couldn't have asked for a better or more qualified attorney.

I watched my friend, Raquel, lose sleep and money for far too long working with attorneys trying to fight for custody of her son from her estranged ex-husband. We cried together because for so long it seemed that she could never get ahead in her case because of how badly the attorneys before Jason had botched her case.
I sat as witness in my friend's trial and Jason was AMAZING. He had me in tears with his sensitivity toward my friend and the way he represented her - stating the facts, and truly taking a personal approach to her case. When it was his time to speak and present evidence, he was factual, but had a finesse that is rare with attorneys today - he hit both the factual evidence and the emotional side without mudslinging in the courtroom.
After over 2 years watching my friend's heart break trying to get her son back safe and sound with her; after accusations from her ex-husband stating he was a victim of her domestic violence; and seeing her spend countless hours and dollars getting nowhere, Jason came to the rescue and justice was served.
I absolutely will recommend Jason in the future - in fact I will be consulting with him on my own case very soon.

Jason is the best attorney you can find, I got the full custody of my child and my divorce was done! I highly recommend him for family law issues. I had divorce, child custody, child support and DV cases all involvoed and Jason did an incredible fantastic legal service for me and for my daughter.

Jason Benjamin has been my attorney for almost two months now, in that short amount of time he has managed to accomplish alot for my daughter and I. Including getting me, the father custody of my 7 month old daughter. I talked to many attorneys that since I was a man, did not believe that they could get me custody of my daughter. I finally meet with Jason in late January, and from the start he has believed in me and has won my child custody divorce. I know that it seems like it is impossible for a man to win custody of his child but I did not take no for an answer. It took me weeks to find MR. Benjamin and when I did I knew from the start that he was on my side and was going to whatever it took to help me throug my case. Jason works quickly and informs you every step of the way of whats going on in your case. Jason is an outstanding lawyer and I would recommend him to anyone who is in my position.

Jason was extremely helpful with my relocation case. Very reassuring and very knowledgeable. Not only did he win the case for me, but he made it so much easier on me. I highly recommend him to anyone i know.

Jason P. Benjamin, is always on the right track. Professional when need be, aggressive when need be, caring all the time, knows his job like no other. I believe he is an attorney because he obviously LOVES what he does and not looking to break your bank! He is worth every single penny. He saved me and my 3 daughters after losing $22,225.00 on another attorney who did ABSOLUTELY nothing for me. I will send anyone and everyone I know who is looking for an " AWESOME " attorney straight to his office door! You are the BEST, and thank you for understanding a single moms difficulties making it even harder not ever receiving any child support for the past 2 years. If you wouldn't had continued to call as depressed as I was I would have never had such an AWESOME attorney. I will never be able to show my appreciation towards you enough... THANK YOU Jason!!!!

Believe in who you hire for an attorney, and know that if Jason Benjamin didn't believe in you, he wouldn't take your case.
I would like to say that Jason Benjamin was not hired by me, rather he believed me, and trusted me, and took my case. I had a messy, messy, child custody case that most attorneys would have undoubtedly quoted me so highly for I would have had no choice but walk out of their office with no hope. Then there is Jason, confident, educated, and humble.
It took 11 months and 7 days for me to receive what we were fighting for, but well worth the wait. I received full custody of all three of my children and permission to leave the state with them.
#1 thing I learned, children are worth waiting for.
Jason brought peace in the court room, integrity, and justice. While watching other "Jerry Springer" like attorneys fight for their unruly clients; I was proud to stand next to Jason. He fights with facts not drama.
Some advice: An attorney and their team are not YOUR administrative team. It is your job to be prepared with your papers of defense. It's all accessible as well Jason's team, amazing Elaine, and Diane, and a few others are prompt to help you.
1. have copies of everything you want Jason to show to the court with you, always.
2. talk less and listen more.
IF YOU ARE TELLING THE TRUTH, JASON WILL WIN.
Jason fights, Jason wins. Jason is smart. Jason can be trusted. Jason cares.
As parents we care most about our children. Often times the emotions of divorce are stacked with the emotions of losing or winning time with our babies. Any parent who is not emotionally charged, would not be hiring an attorney to fight. I believe most strongly that Jason Benjamin cares. He is patient and straight.
Believe in who you hire. Hire Jason Benjamin.

When a friend recomended Jason Benjamin I was pretty much hopeless going through never ending hearings trying to get my son back from his dad and trying to prove that i was not the evil in the story as the oposing party tried to make me look. I have had two attorneys already, have spent a lot of money with them but I was getting nowhere. When i met the first time with Jason he was honest and after reviewing all the documentation that i had to support my case he didnt set false or high expectations and i liked his honesty. All i wanted was to have my son every day with me and he told me that he was going to be shocked if I didnt get the custody because i had everything to win.Finally when the trial came (it lasted 4 days) i could see him in action and was when i confirmed that he is good on what he does and of course I won the custody of my son. I just can say that if you are looking for honesty and results Jason is the attorney to hire. I also have to mention that his secretary Elaine and his paralegals are very supportive and friendly, many times i was about to lose my mind but they were always nice to me and very patient. I do appreciate that from Jason's office becaue it does a great difference when going through so much stress as the stress experienced when going through this kind of issues.

This is my first review on Jason Benjamin, and after all is done with, I will write another review. JASON ROCKS!! Just saying :). I am currently coming to the end of a 10 year long and arduous custody battle. Jason is my 5th attorney and I am absolutely confident that he is going to make all the wrongs right. Over the years, I have tried to convince the courts that my children were in a detrimental situation, but I was never successful. Recently, my children were subjected to more violence, which resulted in the police bringing them to me. I was absolutely at the end of my rope, and when I called my former attorney I was told to write a declaration, edit it, rewrite it, and then it would be submitted to the court. I was told that I would not be able to get an emergency injunction to keep my children with me until it could be re-reviewed by the court. I was not satisfied with that. I got online, started reading up about Jason, and decided to call him. Again, Jason is my 5th attorney, and he is the only one who was able to get immediate results for me. Jason was able to go into court and get that emergency injunction for me . Jason has started to restore my faith in the Family Courts system, and when this is all over that faith will be even more restored. That day in court was surreal for me as I began to realize that the judge was actually listening to my plee. Jason is entirely responsible for that, and I will be forever grateful to him. I am amazed by what he was able to do in just minutes. Jason has a presence about him that exemplifies knowledge, confidence and seeking justice for his client. For the first time, I actually believe that my attorney does care about my situation, and is going to make sure that I am heard, so in turn my children will finally be physically and emotionally safe, which is all I ever wanted as any parent would want. During this process, everytime I have walked into the court house I felt one more time I was probably wasting my time, and this sense of fear and anxiety overwhelmed me. Now that Jason is my attorney, I will walk into that court house walking with my head held high and that sense of fear is gone. Thank you Jason, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! You are amazing!! I am not a religous person, but I do have a very strong spiritual foundation, and I absolutely believe that I was Jason was put in my life for a reason, and I am confident that Jason is going to work hard for me and my children. This battle is not over yet, but this time I am going into it ready to fight instead of ready to be disappointed and frustrated. Jason's team is amazing too, by the way!! Thank you ladies!!! I am truly grateful to all of you.

I am a Major in the US Army and am currently attending law school. I have searched through several family lawyers and know that Jason is bar far the best. He is an amazing advocate, he cares about his clients, will not waste your time and he will win your case. You want him on your side.

Found Jason by chance ( LUCK) back in 1997 when I was was going thru a divorce. I initially hired another attorney but soon fired that person. So I searched for a new attorney,
From the first meeting with Jason, I had full faith in him!
I won my case.
Since then I have referred family, friends, co-workers even strangers to him. He has ALWAYS done an excellent job for everyone.
Jason has been my attorney for almost 15 years now. He has represented me in 2 divoreces, and 3 custody cases!
He is an oustanding attorney and I will continue to refer him to people because I believe in him and know he will always do a great job for me and fight for me!

After spending over $10k with another lawyer with no progress, I explored other options and found Mr. Benjamin. My original lawyer was continuously contacting me, requiring more money. Mr. Benjamin was very clear, from the beginning, what my fees would be and he did not waiver from that agreement. I felt Mr. Benjamin sincerely cared about the outcome of my case and was not just interested in collecting a paycheck.
He took the time to meet with me often to explain where we were in the process and what to expect next. His is very straight forward - never sugar coating the situation or minimizing my concerns. In specifics that I worried and stressed about, Mr. Benjamin had a clear, calm understanding and explained what to expect and how to proceed. He is truly a stable presence amidst a chaotic and emotionally challenging time. In court, he is prepared, concise, articulate, dynamic and confident. As a result of his efforts and readiness, Mr. Benjamin was able to secure every request I had in my case. I greatly appreciate all he did, and would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone seeking a competent, capable lawyer.
The only thing I regret about working with Mr. Benjamin, is that I was not able to work with him sooner.

I retained Jason in May of this year after having been pro se for about six months. Our custody case was a mess and I was pretty worried about how solid it was at that point. I met with Jason and discussed the caseâ€¦ I donâ€™t know how much of it he actually believed at the time because some of the extreme details were just unheard of. He decided to take my case and represent us. He was very accommodating with payment plans on the $5,000 retainer, which I appreciated.
Throughout the length of the custody battle, Jason was efficient and knowledgeable. There were times when I felt doubtful that he would win our case and would feel frustrated. Both Jason and Elaine (his assistant), were always available to discuss my concerns and fears. Jason is thorough in his research and will do his best to bring the truth to the table, even if it seems unbelievable.
I would recommend Jason to anyone going through what we just went through. He is the attorney you want representing you because he is very thorough, knowledgeable and quick in the courtroom. Be prepared to be patient and develop thick skin, because Jason tells it how it is- no sugar coating. Because of his efforts, we were awarded full custody last weekâ€¦ there are no words to express what he did for our family.

Done a very poor job for my daughter and her children. Diffentley sided with the other attorney. He never would return any calls and left everything up to his secretary to do. I would not refer my worst enemy to see him.

my ex-boyfriend told me I had a bad lawyer, that I wasn't going to be able to relocate with our son. I had a 50/50 custody plan with my sons father, my son is 4 years old and my husband and our family were to be stationed in georgia for the Army. Well Jason was right not to worry, everything worked out just like he predicted and my son is relocating to Georgia. Jason was affordable and also flexible with payments and well worth it. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him he knows what he's doing don't ever doubt him like I did, he surely proved me wrong. I will be thanking this guy for the rest of my life and I hope his career and family will always be blessed. Thank You!!! so much!!!!

Jason is working very hard to make the impossible possible. I am a Father that is trying to get custody of my daughter. It is very hard in this state to gain custody if you are a father and we were very close to making that happen because of Jason's hard work! I believe Jason loves what he does and his retainers and rates are very reasonable. I have spoke to people that have told me that Jason was the opposing partys atty and lost to Jason. The consensus is "find Jason first" so he can fight for you instead of being on the opposing end. Our case is not over yet and have a long road ahead of us . I am happy to have Jason by my side every step of the way! Thanks Jason! your a rock star!

I was blindsided when my ex served me with court papers after he had vanished for over a year. And to make matters worse, he ha retained a very well known, very aggressive attorney. Thinking that my ex's horrible record including drugs and violence and abandonment would speak for itself in court, I went to court and represented myself. I was steamrolled by his attorney and was shocked as the judge ruled in their favor and which immediately began giving him visitation, which would after a few short visits, mean that my son would travel ten hours on a single weekend to visit my ex and go from there.
I contacted Jason's office the very next day and met with him for a consultation. On the spot, Jason began digging into the case and told me exactly what he could do to fix the damage that had already been done and then his strategy to protect my son and our family going forward. My stress immediately dissolved.
With urgency, compassion and proficiency, Jason and his staff delivered everything he said they would in my consultation. He is the only attorney to entrust with your legal needs, especially when the safety and wellbeing of your family is at stake.

The entire time I worked with Jason I felt absolutley blessed that I had him for my attorney! He engaged himself into my case - He always knew where the case was at - He was always prepared as to what needed to be focused on and had a clear plan on how we was going to handle every situation down to the finest detail. I felt secure and confident he would take care of everything and he did and did it very well!! He is highly respected and well liked and is truly the best attorney I have ever met!!

Jason Benjamin is the best out of all three child custody lawyers that handled my case. Jason was the lawyer that I felt fought the hardest for me and had the best personality. My friend told me he heard someone beating on the table from the other room; I was proud to say that the noise was coming from my lawyer fighting for me and making a point. Jason took my case on last minute when other lawyers were trying to charge me ridiculous prices and others said they did not have enough of an advanced notice. I felt that he really ripped my ex to shreds on the stand and proved to the judge that the GAL was lying for the opposing party. Mr. Benjamin is incredibly trustworthy, responsive, and knowledgeable. I would hire Jason again without having a second thought. We won custody of my son earlier this month.

Jason is absolutely the best child custody lawyer ever! He represented me and my children with the utmost of concern and care. He never pushed us along because he was too busy, he took every call and concern of mine as if it was his own. He went out of his way to help and give us what was deserved. He listened intently to our issues, and worked hard to resolve them. Jason is very knowledgable, knows all the ins and outs. He always kept me informed on new information that came up. He is extremely professional and dedicated to his job. Hes curtious, kind, respectful, listens well, works quickly, very efficient, and cant forget to mention he will definitly share a laugh with you. I will never go to another lawyer to represent me. I fully put my trust in Jason to help and know he will go the "long haul" for us. He went above and beyond my expectations.

I would and do recommend Jason to anyone and everyone I come into contact with who may have an issue regarding child custody and/or family law. I was referred to Jason by a former client and was so very happy with the way my case was handled and with how I was treated. He and his firm exceeded all my expectation ten fold. It is hard to find a lawyer who cares about YOU first, and money second. I went in for my initial consultation and we pretty much got right down to business immediately. I had had consultations with 2 attorneys regarding the same issue, prior to meeting Mr. Benjamin, who only wanted to talk about money and made me feel uncomfortable and like I was in over my head. I was in a very bad situation where my ex husband had taken control of my children and was abusing that control and using our children as pawns to hurt me, harming them and abusing me in the process. After I retained Mr. Benjamin, we had our first meeting and he called my ex, who immediately began playing nice. It was wonderful. Now my case is over and I have exactly what I had hoped for and I owe it all to Mr. Benamin, who advocated for me in ways I could not have. He went above and beyond and my children and I am forever grateful. If you are looking for a down to earth attorney to help you fight a snake of an ex for your kids and make you feel comfortable while doing so, I would never choose another attorney. Thank you, Jason, for giving me and my kids our lives back.

When people talk about attorneys, it seem like " Blood Sucking Demons " is the phrase that people like to use to describe them. I was unfortunate to have had one of those before i met Jason Benjamin. There is nothing more scary than having your life suddenly be turned upside down and needing someone you can trust to represent you fast and efficiently...and be affordable! I thought all attorneys were the same, boy was i wrong! My first attorney took my money and did not return my calls, left me waiting in court for him to show up 45 min. late on the most important day. That was a hard lesson that i will never have to go through again.
Jason Benjamin was like a godsend...
I had a truly difficult custody case that came with multiple challenges/battles that turned into other cases for Jason to help represent me through also. He took on so much for me and my three children. He worked with me for hours on end in the evening and on weekends...He does the work right there with you in his office were he has two computers right there on his desk...he has a wonderful staff but i found he hardly ever needs any help...Jason is a highly competent multi tasker with skills on a genius level.
I am completely satisfied with the outcome of my case/cases! If i ever need representation again i will always turn to Jason Benjamin.

During the time of research and finding this lawyer I found myself in a very tight and difficult situation. I was scared to get a divorce living cross country from my wife who was raising my daughter in Washington and was threatening to never let me see my child again. I felt as though I had the most impossible case that no lawyer would wanna deal with. But with all my doubts I sat down with Mr. Benjamin and he promised me that he would get me custody and remarkably he did. Jason has techniques and resourceful tools that make any divorce or custody case seem easy to handle. With all of the knowledge and experience that Jason is equipped with. It is so important to speak with a lawyer of his caliber that can give you the confidence you need to see the outcome you are looking for no matter what scenario. This is a lawyer that will do his best to get you what you want. I recommend Jason Especially for fathers that feel that they want to be actively involved in their children lives and don't know how. Jason Benjamin is who you need to have represent you!!

Jason, you were the 4th attorney my daughter went to see for a consultation on her divorce case and the child custody issue. It had been over 6 wks her husband took their daughter and my daughter was not allowed to see her or speak to her. On Dec.10th at 1:00pm my daughter had a consultation with you, by 3:30pm you guys were in court, by 4:00pm the Judge ordered that my grand daughter be returned to her Mom by 7PM. That was Amazing!!! The Joy that your prompt action has brought to our family can't be described with words.
2 other attorneys told my daughter that they did not work at Pierce County after charging her for their time, and the 3rd one did not charge for the consultation and told her it would take 2 to 3 months before he could obtain any meaningful orders from the Court.
You are a TRUE CARING PROFESSIONAL WHO IS THERE TO FIGHT FOR JUSTICE. I can't thank you enough for all the help you are providing to my daughter and I hope to meet you in the near future.

Jason Benjamin is very knowledgeable about family law. He is also a well know, liked and established attorney among the court system. Mr. Benjamin was honest, quite blunt really, about what I he could, and could not do for me. He fought hard and did what was necessary to ensure I received the fairest and best outcome.

I worked with Jason Benjamin for a custody battle that took place over a year after my divorce was final. My ex-husband was making false accusations and embellishing the truth, in order to turn the partenting plan around to give him and his new wife full custody, and wanted me to have to pay him child support. Jason worked with me for over a year through the many hearings that took place. Jason was able to help prove that my statements were accurate, that my ex-husband was not being truthful, and that he did not have reasonable grounds to win his case.
When it came time to write declarations, Jason made sure that every statement we made was not spiteful or insulting, but was to the point. This helped me to be able to come out of the case with my head held high, knowing that I didn't stoop to the lower levels of my ex-husband and his attorney. Everything we said and did was based on supported fact.
Being a single mother, I was financially strapped. Jason took this into consideration when discussing fees, and he made sure that our time was used wisely. The total of my expenses were incredibly reasonable, and so much less than what I expected.
In the end, the custody and parenting plan remained nearly the same as it was before, and the minor changes that took place were ones that I desired. Not only did my ex-husband loose his case, but he was also ordered to pay 70% of my attorney fees, and his monthly child support was increased by 28%.
I would have never been able to have such a great outcome without the help of Jason and his office staff. I am very grateful for their time and patience. I owe many thanks to Jason, Diane, and Elaine.

Jason helped my husband and me gain full custody of my step son. We are very pleased with the outcome of our case. I would and have recomended him to anyone needing a lawyer specializing in family law. He is very honest and upfront and will tell you whether or not you are being realistic. I have full confidence in his abilities, he has been our lawyer for more than 5 years through a long custody case and I can say from experience he will do what it takes to fight for you. We are very thankful for Jason.

Jason was amazing. I was comfortable from the moment I walked into his office. He listened and I fully trusted him representing me. I would definitely use Mr. Benjamin again if I needed to.

I have to be honest the first time I talked to Jason he made me cry. He was straight forward and honest about my situation. Jason was able to see the bigger picture of what I could have in my situation. He recommended I go through mediation to change my parenting plan which I did. Although, it’s not exactly what I had pictured he counted every single day I had my daughter throughout the year and helped me realize that it is exactly what I wanted which was a 50% parenting plan. I was extremely happy. After, that my ex husband left for a job in a different state and tried to take my daughter with him. Jason took all the necessary steps to prevent this from happening and six months later I have custody of my daughter.
Jason is extremely knowledgeable in court proceedings and is honest about what he can and cannot do. He always told me what my options were and both ends of the scenario. He is truthful and that is a great asset. I thought my case was difficult but Jason has a lot of experience and he knew exactly how to deal with my ex-husband. He knew what type of personality he had and Jason knew how to talk to him. I could have never imagined I have all that I do now. I have recommended Jason to others that need an attorney and they have had only positive experiences. I know of people who have had up to three attorneys and have not gotten the results they got after hiring Jason. I am blessed to have found Jason the first time because I can’t imagine having to deal with someone who is not fighting hard for you.
Yes, Jason is busy but he set up phone conferences to talk to me when I was in a different state and talked to me when he needed information to move my case forward. When I started to get discouraged my worries were put to rest.
Somehow thank you doesn’t seem to be enough.
Thank you, Jason and your staff for all your hard work.

Jason was a great lawyer for my divorce. He was very knowledgeable about all the in's and out's of divorce law.

Jason Benjamin get's results you need. I had three different attorneys before Jason, and none of them where as intelligent as he was with my case. He's a go getter, and is always there for you. He worked around my schedule day or night, and even weekends. I can't thank him enough. I tell everyone I no to use him, because I belive in him that much. Jason your the Man! Thanks again..

I got the name of Jason Benjamin from a friend who had used him. I didn't know what to expect when my divorce first started and was very nervous and scared. Jason took me to court and got me everything and more than I even thought I could get. Since my divorce Ive been back to Mr. Benjamin to update my parenting plan. He took me through court again and I dont wanna brag but he blew my ex-husbands attorney out of the water. He was amazing... I got everything we had asked for and at the time my ex was mounting a case against me which could have made Jason alot of money by representing me, but Jason got his attoney to drop the case and gave up making that money to help me. Thats how I know he's a great attorney. I would reccomend Jason Benjamin to everyone. I couldn't of asked for a better attorney.

when I came to Jason I felt helpless and had just lost that week in court and wanted a new lawyer and he was in the court room that day for one of his cases and remembered my case, he explained to me that my case was straight forward and answered all my questions and told me what to expect if we would have went to trail luckily we were able to settle without a trail I feel the outcome was fair and was what I wanted Jason is honest up front and very helpful and I would go to Jason for again if needed and would recommend him to anyone, thanks Jason

Jason Benjamin accepted my case regardless of my challenges. He understood that I was battling against an ex-husband who had millions of dollars. The other party brought in 3 well known local attorneys that Jason was up against. One who eventually withdrew from the case. His rates are very reasonable. He committed himself to my case that came with very complicated legalities and a number of complex issues. My case involved child abuse, child endangerment,neglect and mental disorders with the other party. My case had a very extensive list of witness's, 3 of which were expert witness's that Jason arranged .
Jason was very responsive and knowledgeable family law and related cases. As the other party was willing to spend what ever it took and constantly was filing frivolous motion after motion, Jason responded to every attack without hesitation. My case lasted over a year, trial was set and Jason was very prepared and very aggressive. My case prevailed over the other party. I am very grateful for Jason. He fought for the truth and certainly works with integrity. I have never known of any attorney who is willing to commit the way Jason did.

I was a client for several years. The original divorce and custody was wonderful. When I went back last summer for a modification I paid him a $2000 retainer. When I said I wanted to start all the paperwork but file later in the summer that was agreed on. But then nothing occured. I recontacted them in early fall and they were going to serve the ex and get it going. They didn't serve him, the office staff temporarily lost the paperwork and soon time had passed it was just before Thanksgiving and I said lets wait until after Christmas. When I contacted them in January circumstances had changed d=and I needed to not serve the ex but I had very specific questions. I left my questions 3 times and never recieved an answer. When I called end of February the secretary said "Oh I was supposed to call you". I said stop everything I didn't want to be a cleint. I asked for my retainer back. I was told remember you signed a contract that says your retainer is non refundable. I said even though your office has done nothing for me? She had the nerve to say but you asked us not to. I asked them not to becuased situations changed after 6 months and I did ask very specific questions around custody and my rights in a difficult situation that never was answered. Jason is a very smart knowledgable lawyer but I feel his staff is letting down the cleints. This was a very expensive mistake that I made and does it hurt. I have to find a new attorney and come up with more cash to get help.

Jason is hands down one of the best lawyers out there. He is able to assess your situation & present the best case possible in court. I had an ex that tried to kidnap my kids to Montana and not only was Jason able to bring them back, I got custody of my son. I felt helpless before I had met Jason because my ex was able to deceive and lie to the courts in previous cases and got away with it. Jason was able to expose the deceptions in court and we won! Thank you Jason!!!

When I first hired him he was on point and got the ball rolling, however after my ex kept stalling the case he was eating up hours in continued court appearances. His rate is one of the highest I have seen per hour and I ended up finding out that I could have paid a cheaper lawyer to do the same work for a lot less. Also, he would not return calls and it took making an appointment at his hourly rate in order to get in touch with him. BE CAREFUL WITH JASON!!!
