About me

Aggressive, creative, and compassionate are words Ben Stevens’ colleagues freely use to describe him. While Ben is an experienced trial lawyer who holds an AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell, it takes much more than technical proficiency to be an effective family law attorney. A quality family law attorney must also be able to understand his clients’ problems and to understand the emotional and human nature of the issues faced by people going through a family crisis. At the same time, however, a good attorney navigates the most direct path to a fair resolution of his client’s case. Ben possesses a tremendous ability to be simultaneously understanding and effective.

  • David Michael Collins Jr.

    I have known Ben for over 15 years and he has always been an extremely competent and compassionate lawyer. I have worked with Ben as both the opposing attorney and as co-counsel on complex cases. His knowledge of the law and his abilities in a courtroom have always impressed me. Those same skills have also gained him the respect of his fellow lawyers and our Family Court Judges.
