Generous, reasonable and honest
After I got into a car accident I was not planning on hiring a personal injury lawyer as my injuries were small. But the at fault party's insurance paperwork had several clauses that I felt uncomfortable signing and reached out to Iliff, Meredith, Wildberger & Brennan on the basis of the reviews they had received online. Ben talked me through what I should expect, help me understand the legal language in the paperwork and due to his caseload, referred me to a friend of his whose practice my situation is better suited to. He was generous with his time on the phone with me, even though he determined early on that my situation wasn't suited to his practice. His approach was reasonable (my fears of being pushed to sue for $$$$ were unfounded). And finally I respect a professional who can refer to someone else better suited.

Would happily recommend Benjamin Howard Meredith!
Ben was across the board really wonderful to work with on my case. He made sure that I understood the process and the legal language every step of the way, and was always willing to patiently answer any questions I had. I never had any doubts that he was acting in my best interest, and would absolutely recommend him time and time again.

Automobile-Caused Injury Case for Paul A. Philip, Sr.
Ben handled the case for our deceased father in an excellent manner. Despite the complexities of the case, due to my father having passed away prior to pursuing the case for his leg injury, and my mother (who is in her mid-80s) preferring not to testify, he obtained a settlement that was fair and higher than our expectations. He also handled all of this with care and sensitivity to the family's desire to involve my mother minimally since she was already upset and mourning due to my father's passing.

There is no question why Ben and his firm, Iliff, Meredith, Wildberger and Brennan, P.C., were voted the 2014 Best Law Firms by US News and World Report. They are the best! It seems that the misfortunes of life have made me a return client to the firm. Fortunately, there are attorneys like Ben who are there to help their clients make some right out of wrong, and to bring some compassion to a bad situation. Ben was directly involved with my most recent claim. The claim we (my mother and I) brought forth to Ben and his colleagues was to seek justice for the untimely death of my brother while he was working on the job. Ben handled a majority of the interrogatories, discovery responses and other trial preparations. He was very honest and helpful. He guided us through the complexities of the legal system while explaining it in layman's terms. We even got to know Ben and his colleagues at a more personal level. You are reminded that they aren't just working for you, but they are someone's brother or mother. They have spouses and children like we do. Also, Ben was very attentive, and immediately followed up to any questions or concerns we had. He was very accepting and understanding of how proactive I wanted to be in my brother's case. Ben and the other attorneys at Iliff, Meredith, Wildberger and Brennan, PC, make you feel like family.

Good, Sound Legal Advice; Provided great referrals for my legal issues
I've had occasion to consult with Mr. Meredith about a variety of legal issues. Although he has explained that his practice focuses primarily on Medical Malpractice and Personal Injury cases, he's been consistently knowledgeable and helpful with my questions. He has been consistently accessible, trustworthy, and good-natured. Most importantly, he's been helpful. He also provided referrals that I might seek for legal consultation for my particular matters, which I did, and found very helpful. Ben Meredith has my highest recommendation.

Benjamin Howard Meredith
I became a client of Ben's in 2012 after the death of my son. From the very beginning upon taking my case Ben was in constant communication, updating me on each step he took. What I found most admirable about Ben was not only his sensitivity, but his honesty and exceptional knowledge of the law. Ben explained and walked me through every detail of my case. His recommentations and advice aided in a successful end to my case.
