Ben Meyer represented me during my divorce, which recently concluded with a settlement agreement between myself and my ex-wife. Throughout the course of the divorce, Ben was very knowledgeable and informative, not only regarding my rights as both a father and husband in a long-term marriage, but also regarding each step of the divorce process itself. Ben always kept me well-informed, answered my questions and thoroughly addressed my concerns. At no time during the divorce did I ever feel that he was not working hard to protect my best interests or willing the fight for me. He offered good recommendations, sound advice and practical solutions to various issues and problems which could have otherwise made my divorce a complete nightmare. I sincerely appreciate the effort Ben put into helping me reach a settlement agreement in my case, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is going through a divorce.

I went through a divorce and needed a good lawyer. Ben was very thorough and made sure everything was covered and understood by everyone involved. I was able to ask any questions and get quick, precise answers. He worked with me on my schedule. Everything went very smooth during the whole process. He was easy to contact whenever I had a question or issue. If there is ever any follow up to my case, I will not go anywhere else. I really appreciate everything he did and how solid everything still is. He was very dependable and I would highly recommend him.

I recently went through a tough divorce. Benjamin assured me he would get me through the process quickly and efficiently. Not having gone through this process and with it being highly emotional for me, I was very appreciative that he took the lead and laid out his strategy and expectations for me. Benjamin is an excellent communicator. With every step of the process, he took the time to make sure I fully understood what was happening, why it was happening, and the possible scenarios that could play out. This was very important to me, especially with my young children involved. Benjamin gave me clear direction with developing the MSA and JPA. He is an excellent wordsmith. With every step of writing the documents, he would give me suggestions in a way that I felt empowered to make the decision for the content. All in all, Benjamin was true to his promise. The divorce was finalized in 3 months and I am in a very good situation with my children and my ex because of his solid leadership and acumen. I strongly recommend Benjamin!

Mr. Meyer and I practice within the same firm and have worked on numerous cases together. Fear, not your opponent, is the adversary of many attorneys when it comes to litigation. Mr. Meyer maintains his focus squarely upon his opponent. This is a key quality in a quality attorney.
