Practice area

A native of Iowa, Attorney Benjamin Feld has always understood the value of hard work and of getting along with everyone. While earning his undergraduate degree at Drake University, Mr. Feld started his own private investigation business, called Bulldog Investigations. In this endeavor, he gained experience in criminal defense and family law, including child custody and infidelity issues. After graduation, he closed his business and followed his dream of attending law school by enrolling at Michigan State College of Law. While in law school, Mr. Feld worked in the Consumer Protection Division of the Michigan Attorney General’s office. He worked with the assistant attorney general to combat human trafficking in Michigan. From there, he took a job with the Sinas Dramis Law Firm. After earning his J.D., Mr. Feld returned to Iowa and opened his own private practice where he represents clients throughout Iowa facing both felony and misdemeanor charges.

Very Kind and respectful
Ben was very kind to me. He was diligent in helping me, reviewing the evidence that I presented him, thinking about ways to tackle the problem and was very respectful.

Felony to Simple Misdemeanor
I hired Ben to represent my husband on a felony charge. He found law code right away that reduced the felony to an aggravated misdemeanor. Then worked closely with the district attorney and was able to get my husband's charge reduced to a simple misdemeanor of misconduct. His fee was 3 times cheaper than the other defense attorneys I called. He replies quickly to emails, texts, and answers his phone personally most of the time. Great guy. Highly recommend Ben, he will go the distance for you.

He’s an idiot
He gives the worst advice a lawyer could give a client. I had a no contact order he was trying to have removed. Protected party gave him the opportunity to drop it. He drug his feet, never filed the paperwork with the court and the protected party changed their mind. Then he says it wasn’t his fault and I should plead guilty, then try to move on after the mandatory 90 days in jail. Ended up firing him.
