About Me

At the Law Office of Benjamin D. Platt we attempt to treat every client as family. We want our client's to know we care about their family law matters as much as we care about our own.  

The Law Office of Benjamin D. Platt is experienced in Contested Divorce, Child Custody and all other Family Law Matters.  We have handled High Asset Divorces, Highly contested Child Custody isses and come out sucessfully for our clients.

Our office works hard for you regardless of the issues at hand.  We believe everyone should be afforded legal representation and we strive to meet the needs of everyone who walks through our door.  

All staff members at our firm are experienced in both family law and criminal law matters.  We are a close nit group and enjoy the family atmosphere we provide for our clients.  We are agressive when necessary but also able to negotiate a settlement based on your wants and desires.  We will never force you to settle in matters you wish to dispute; nor will we force you to litigate if you have reached a settlement with the other side.

At the end of the day, we want each of our clients to feel they were important and respected by our staff.
