Great experience
We had the opportunity to work with Ben recently on a project to re-incorporate our LLC in a different state. Ben was both highly knowledgeable on the various legal and tax implications of the move and very quick and efficient at executing the change. Ben also structured the changes and explained each step clearly, so that each contract and document was easy to understand. He made what could have been a long and complicated process, one that was easy for us and complete within no time at all. We would absolutely recommend Ben for others seeking a lawyer with experience working with small companies and expertise in U.S. business and tax law.

Best Lawyer Experience
I'm so thankful to have found Mr. Lambert through Avvo, and I absolutely plan on using him again in the future. Mr. Lambert was very professional, patient, and worked diligently in order to assist me with my request to rewrite contracts and review documents pertaining to my LLC. He worked late at night to send me the new contract I needed and followed up with me the next morning to discuss any questions I had. What started as a consultation quickly turned into a hire, and his fees were very reasonable even considering my hurried needs.

Great Work, Knowledgable, Thorough, Concise, Detailed
Ben was extremely helpful in working with my accountants and myself figuring out legal and tax options for a temporary ex-pat lifestyle. He was very prepared for our call, offered multiple options and suggestions, was clear and concise with his advice, and best of all, went above and beyond the original request. Can't recommend Ben highly enough!

Great Lawyer - Highly Recommend!
I hired Ben to help me with legal agreements for a program I'm running. Ben was responsive, timely, helpful, explained everything clearly to me, and made sure to address all of my concerns. I liked that he even provided a word doc version of the agreement he drew up for me so that it could easily be adjusted in the future. He was sure to ask questions and make sure he had all the information he needed from me. Overall, I had a very positive experience working with Ben. Not only would I use him again, I highly recommend him. I've been left with the comfort of knowing that things have been properly taken care of and that I have the right legal agreements in place that I need to ensure my business is protected. Ben is very knowledgeable but also makes sure to be realistic and upfront with you - he doesn't tell you what you want to hear, he tells you what you need to know to make informed business decisions. Ben also consulted with me regarding the registration of my business. The information he provided was very insightful and valuable. He gave me a clearer picture of what is involved in the process. I learned a lot from Ben that I didn't know before and that really helped guide me in my business decisions.

Amazing Service on Start-up Employee Docs
Ben was amazing in his service. Professional, fast, extremely value-add, prepared and intelligent. To elaborate: I am beginning work at a start-up and contacted Ben to review an Offer Employment Agreement and a Non-Compete Letter. Ben went through the doc the next day and sent through a thorough mark-up of the docs. Every one of the comments was thoughtful and value-add; nothing superfluous. Our 30 minute call to review the comments was a fantastic experience. Ben had backup and context for each of the comments. He did a great job of labeling which comments were must-haves vs. nice-to-haves. He explained the definition of the legal language I had questions on while also describing the impact of various outcomes. Ben was extremely flexible with timing of our call, which I had to move a couple times. We ended up speaking on a Sunday morning which Ben had no problem with. I spent 6 years in investment banking in New York working with over 100 top-tier corporate lawyers at various levels (jr. associate, sr. associate and partner). I can honestly say that Ben's doc review and discussion were the same levels of service that I'd experienced with any top corporate lawyer I've ever worked with. I would very highly recommend Ben to anyone. Thanks Ben!

Just what I needed
I needed help constructing a business plan for a visa and not only did Ben help me quickly and efficiently, but his advice in constructing my plan was just what I needed. He took into consideration what I wanted to express and accomplish and perfected and polished it. I'm so happy I went to Ben and couldn't have done it without him.

I was called very quickly. He answered my questions about my issue, which was regarding how to get a refund from a company that did not provide the services promised. Gave me excellent advice. He told me the first steps I could take to resolve my case without hiring an attorney. Plus he told me what to do if that didn't work, and so on. It was exactly what I needed. Well worth the $39. I would highly recommend Avvo Advisor

My Bylaws Hero!
Our company needed bylaws and Ben was referred to us. He was prompt and efficient and wrote great bylaws which would have taken us months to write. He also helped us write a consent form and knew exactly what was needed. Thank you, Ben, for the pleasure of working with you and for helping our company become established!
Response from J. Lambert October 3, 2015
Thank you, Julie! It was great working with you, I look forward to doing so again soon! For the record, I worked with Julie through an organization which connects volunteer attorneys with non-profit organizations in need of pro bono (free) legal services so Julie's organization "hired" me though I was not paid.

A Vital Trusted Resource
Ben recently helped me with issues relating to others using my copyrighted material. Not only was he prompt with all responses and actions, he was mindful and respectful of my budget. And even more importantly he took the time to really explain to me my options and where our efforts would produce the best results. He has been integral in helping with these issues. I consider him a trust resource and I'm already making plans to call on him again.

International Subcontractor Agreements
Ben and I collaborated on a series of Subcontractor Agreements. I needed the agreements to be reviewed and edited so that they would be applicable abroad. Not only did Ben fulfill that requirement, but he also added several other elements to the agreements that fit my business needs specifically. He clearly explained these alterations to me and offered continued assistance and advice. I was very happy with his assistance!

Mr. Lambert has helped me in numerous legal situations, mostly in the areas of business law. I have found his knowledge to be extensive. In every situation, his advice was spot on. I would not hesitate to recommend him!

Very helpful. Great experience!
Ben truly knows customer service and treated me as if I were his only client when I wasn't even his client! I had some business needs in India. Ben apparently worked as a businessman in India for several years. He gave me some generic advice before passing me on to a colleague in India. He got us both on the phone and introduced us, then followes upbwith us both later. I'll definitely use him if I ever have legal needs in the US.
