Very Capable Attorney
Ben is a very capable attorney and who enjoys what he does. He has a very good reputation in the community and, because of his representation, I was able to achieve a favorable result.

Attorney
We were involved in a personal injury situation. Ben and his firm were recommended to us by another trusted attorney. My husband sustained injuries that totaled our truck, appearing over time. (The other driver was ticketed at the time of the accident). As a result, my husband started with generalized pain, numbness, short-term memory loss and strength loss. After initially contacting Folkman Law we were uncovering more mental/health issues that my husband was dealing with and the effects not only to him but to our family. Ben's team were most patient and accommodating as we were steadily getting reports of the deeper issues he was suffering. I had taken on increasing responsibility to manage our life as my husband's frustrations increased. Our "two year" journey for a diagnosis turned into four. When we were literally at our collective ends of the rope; physically, financially, emotionally. We not only won the case but were awarded compensation to re-start and get my husband the help we so desperately needed. The other driver was clearly, admittedly at fault. What I/we have learned is patience, and a sympathetic attorney to help us through a most difficult time. I/we would certainly recommend Ben and his firm to anyone. We appreciated a calm navigator to help ease anxiety if and when help is needed.

Outstanding response in an emergency!
I never expected to be harassed by another employee at my work place. When it happened, I was overwhelmed. I'm glad that I turned to Ben Folkman, Esq. and his staff who flawlessly guided me through the steps necessary to document this with my employer. Ben is truly someone that you can count on when you are in a difficult situation.

Tireless Litigator
You're not going to find a finer attorney anywhere in south jersey! I came to Ben and his team of attorneys when a former employer threatened my professional ability to survive. The opposing strategy: bleed me dry. My strategy: be professional and hire Folkman Law. The outcome couldn't have been better. Ben and his team were tireless in their defense of my case and the pursuit of fairness. He coached me in understanding matters of law, guided me through the ins and outs of the case and stood up for me regardless of what the other side "threw" out in our proceedings. He "schooled" them countless times and wasn't opposed to calling out the other side when they were less then forthcoming with all the facts. He was masterful in how he attacked my case and brought years of experience to bear. It gave me confidence--it was leadership. Long tough cases have good days and bad days. When those tough days showed themselves, Ben and his talented associates were able to articulate and demonstrate how solutions were going to be pursued and executed with the outcome of ultimate success in mind. On those days where everything fell into place, all the hard work and efforts of this exceptional legal team made clear I had engaged a world class attorney. Folkman Law, my firm when it counted!

Great to work with!
I've worked with Ben Folkman and his law firm on a few occasions, and he has been nothing short of amazing to work with. He always makes time to explain what he's doing and to ensure I understand the reasoning behind it. I would absolutely recommend him!

Excellent & Knowledgeable
Ben has represented my company on a few occasions, and he has always exceeded our expectations. He understands his space very well and always has time to explain everything as simply as possible, if needed. And he's also a real nice guy! I highly recommend Ben.

Mody's Review to the FolkmanLaw Firm
The FolkmanLaw Firm did an outstanding Job in assisting me with my case, I felt so privileged with the way they handled my case, the respect, the professionalism, This is an office full of highly talented Attorneys that are not only good at their job but they also treat you like a close friend or a family member. I had a great experience meeting with every single one of them, Every one in the office made me felt so comfortable. I am also very pleased with the outstanding administrative team members,(not to mention any name in public) by the quick responses, the respectful and great communication skills, the lightning fast mailing of documents and the friendly personality was deeply appreciated. My experience with The FolkmanLaw firm was very impressive in every level and I will never forget. My deepest thank you to Ben and is entire team. I am grateful to all of you for having faith in my case and assisting me in resolving it. Thanks again.

litigation
Mr. Folkman represented our family in litigation involving a contract dispute. He did an excellent job and kept us informed throughout the process. I would highly recommend him.

A Great attorney
I would recommend Ben and his staff to anyone!!. He truly cares about his clients on a PERSONAL level. Our case was pretty simple , basic, cut and dried. Ben listened to us and what we hoped to achieve.He did exactly what we set out to do at the onset. But, most importantly, he was sensitive and caring. I cannot say enough how very, very important that was to my wife and I.

Personal Representation
Ben represented me in complex litigation in which an attorney was suing me for a lot of money. Ben immediately calmed my concerns by explaining aspects of the litigation and the likely results. He was always attentive and responsive and it felt that I was proceeding with a compassionate partner by my side. However he was very thorough and aggressive in defending me, and in the end, he achieved an excellent result. I would recommend him to anyone who wishes their interests to be taken seriously by their lawyer!

Ben Folkman It's like family
Ben took a case for my husband and I that no one else would take, he fought long, hard and won. My family has been working with Ben for over 15 years. He is like family someone you can trust, we have used Ben on several issues . My Daughter needed Ben for a case a few months ago and he won hers as as well.

Excellent Attorney
I was extremely pleased with the legal services provided by Mr. Folkman and his staff. His professionalism, integrity and committment to his clients is beyond reproach. I would highly recommend his firm.

A lawyer you can trust!
Ben Folkman is a lawyer you can trust! No other lawyer would take our case. They only told us reasons why we shouldn't pursue it. Ben took the time to listen to us, gave us his professional opinion and discussion, then accepted our case, a wrongful death case against our parents murderer. He put a team together and went to work for us right away. During this burdensome time for me and my family, we were finally able to feel a sense of ease. When the trial began, Ben was fully prepared. He and his team won our case with a judgement that took the jury less than 30 minutes to decide. Would we recommend Ben Folkman? Ben's expertise covers several areas of law. We highly reccomend Ben Folkman and his firm.

A solid professional who treats you like family
Ben saved me from a bad situation. I was with a "big" firm who was more interested in my bank account then solving the problem. Ben not only gave me sound legal advice but during the process became my friend. He is a trusted adviser and is worth his weight in gold. I'm lucky to have such a talented resource just a phone call away. You will not find a more responsive nor dedicated attorney.

Stay away
Mr. Folkman is an attorney who is, in my opinion, unequivocally more interested in his bottom line than in your fight. He will advocate for your interests and will pursue a case only to the extent that it directly benefits him. I found him to be poorly informed as to the details of our claim. He did not guide us in developing a meaningful offense; rather, he persisted in building billable hours defending his manner of representing us. He did not view us as collaborators, or as sources of information, knowledgeable about an experience that we lived. Our time with him was characterized by thousands upon thousands of dollars that went toward meaningless correspondence and phonecalls - most of which were defined by playing "footsie" or making empty threats toward opposing counsel - threats that increased his revenue but failed to take our case any further. He did woefully little of value that took us toward a resolution of our claim and because of his poor representation, we were left with no alternative but to begin again with a new attorney after having spent approximately $69,000 with him. At no point did we believe that we were guaranteed success ; however, we had a right to be actively, assertively, and prudently represented. We did not receive what he was obligated to provide and as mentioned, we were left to begin again after wasting several years and tens of thousands of dollars with him.
