Ben was always responsive, helpful and helped me to see things from the bigger picture / long term so that all decisions were made with my kids welfare first and foremost. He was always honest with what I should / could expect, whether or not it benefited me. And there were times when I was "rattled" and he would calm me down by explaining what was legally going on and what things meant; always giving me various options and detailing what outcomes each option could lead to. He was never cut throat or deceitful....quite the opposite; he always conducted himself with dignity and integrity in his dealings with me and the opposing party. Divorce / custody disagreements can be very emotional and confusing and Ben helped me make cost effective, wise choices with my children and their well being at the heart of every decision. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who is facing the decision to divorce, especially if children are involved.

We got the news that she was moving the kids to another state and quickly wanted to get legal representation so as not to lose them. We contacted Ben and he was more than efficient and knowledgeable. He got right on everything and we were very surprised to see that he was able to do all that he said that he would.
For our specific situation we thought that we would be moving and so we negotiated everything as such. And Ben made sure that we got everything that we asked for and some. Our child support payments were reduced, visitation was increased dramatically, and custody was enhanced!!
We would recommend him to any family that needs courteous, prompt, honest, and truly knowledgeable council from a family man.
He understands and works hard to make sure that the ball is in your court, or at least played fairly.
