Excellent defense attorney
Mr Kelsen recently represented a family member in a serious series of criminal proceedings. His approach was quite professional and he demonstrated an excellent understanding of the entire process. I would absolutely recommend him for criminal defense matters.

I highly recommend Mr. Kelsen
Attorney Benjamin Kelsen helped me when I was charged with a DUI. He put my mind at ease and got me the result I wanted. Every person who hires a lawyer should have the expertise and knowledge that Mr. Kelsen possess.

Amazing Attorney!!!
Mr. Kelsen recently represented my son in a criminal matter and got amazing results, better than we could have imagined! Now my son is getting the treatment he needs rather than spending the next 15 years in prison!

Ben is the best!
Ben Kelsen addressed our family's estate planning some years ago and more recently he has handled a traffic ticket case for us. In both engagements, Ben professionally addressed our issues to our satisfaction and exceeded our expectations. Ben brings to the table both hard-skill and soft-skill expertise, with a thorough and complete understanding of the the technical, legal aspects of an issue as well as a sensitivity to the nuances of the specific case at hand. Ben is a pleasure to work with. He acknowledges - and addresses - our concerns while staying focused on - and advising us of - what is in our best interest.
