This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Goes above and beyond!
Amazing services! From my experience he went out of his way to get things handled and as quickly as possible. A weekend trip out of town turned into a two month stay In central booking with no bail and considered a flight risk. By our second court date I was on my way home! This man got up and educated the judge and the da on the law to the point they had to go over it in court, and realized at that point they no longer had a case due to an error on their side. When my case was dismissed and charges dropped the DA was not happy and said they would still be pursuing other route’s. When I made it back home the Da had already reopened new charges. I was states and states away and he put it to rest yet again. I was never charged everything was dismissed. He is definitely someone you want in your corner during a tough situation.

Cool under fire
Ben’s professional expertise and calm demeanor are unimpeachable. Ben navigated many challenges during the course of my case, overcoming each twist through a combination of experience, analysis, research and well-articulated rebuttal. Our discussions were not just absent the “wall of arrogance” that too often accompany attorney / client interactions, they occasionally included a welcome dose of humor. I would recommend Ben to anyone seeking expertise with bankruptcy law.

An Lawyer who listens and cares for your needs.
Visiting a lawyer for your needs are nerve racking and uncomfortable to say the least, especially when people who go to see a lawyer are already in some kind of bad situation to begin with. Right from the first visit you’d notice Ben's calming and relaxing personality, and put that together with his knowledge and professionalism then you'll have one the best lawyers out there for your needs.

Excellent Defense Attorney..Highly Recommend
Ben did an excellent job with my case and was not affraid to defend me. He understood the laws very well and continued to partner and negotiate with the prosecution which led to having my charges dropped completely. I highly recommend Ben as a defense attorney
