About Benjamin

Learn Benjamin’s areas of practice.

I am believer that people accused of a criminal offense deserve the most competent  and experienced legal counsel possible for a fair and reasonable cost of representation. My team of criminal defense lawyers vigorously defends the rights of Ohioans accused of all types of State or Federal criminal offenses. 

 

I grew up in the Central Ohio area (small town of Bexley OH) and attended The Ohio State University for my undergraduate degree before obtaining my Juris Doctorate in Law at Capital University Law School. 

 

When I'm not in the court room, I like to spend my time with my family, volunteering with local organizations and charities, and playing sports. I also enjoy traveling that involves outdoor exploration and adventure.

Luftman and Associates Handled my Case very Professionally
Ben and his team did a great job of representing me, their communication with me was constant and clear, starting with our initial meeting with Ben. Don Olson in particular did a fantastic job with my case. I live in Cincinnati and he was always available to communication via phone or text. They are definitely the best around, I was extremely happy with the outcome even in the midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic things went very smoothly. Thanks you Ben and Don and you support staff you guys are top of the game, and I would highly recommend you to anyone needing representation.

Great law firm!
From quickly returning my frantic, initial phone call to representing our family member, Ben and Bryan were conscientious and knowledgeable. We had a good outcome thanks to this law firm.

Wrote a letter to support me 4+ years after my case
This guy masterfully defended me and then took time away from a family vacation to provide me with support and assistance that enabled me to land my dream job. Lawyers are a punching bag in this country, but I cannot say enough good of a guy Ben is and how good he is.

Ben does a fantastic job with family members. He gives them hope and a great deal of empathy and encouragement to help them thru the case with their loved ones! He is very compassionate and works well with the Courts to guide the family thru the legal system. It is a pleasure to work with him...

Misdemeanor
Brian was amazing , i was charged with theft and i have never committed a crime and i was extremely nervous as to what was going to occur. I got a few letters from many lawyers, even met with a few of them and when i met with Brian his confidence is what made me want to hire him. I did not have to go to court at all and we are now working on getting my case expunged . You couldn’t go wrong hiring these guys !

Great Lawyer
Mr. Luftman is an excellent attorney, his hard work and dedication to my case was incredible. He faught for me when the court tried to increase my charges. He was very professional and treated me like a person not another case. I would highly recommend Mr. Luftman and his associates to represent me or anyone if they are looking for someone who will fight for your rights, and treat you like a human being.

Great Lawyer
I have never been in trouble with the law in my life, I am 45 years old and was pulled over for OMVI and I also have a concealed carry permit. I had my gun in the car at the time. I was arrested for OMVI and also charged with a Felony 4 because of the gun. I called Ben the next morning and he assured me he could help me out. I am 4 years from retirement and was at a high risk of losing my job and pension. Like most people I had a lot to lose for my mistake. Less than 2 weeks after my incident Ben had a deal made with the prosecutor and my felony charge was dismissed. Ben and his firm worked tirelessly to help me. I would recommend him to anyone, he saved my life and career.
