Excellent Lawyer
He helped me out with my speeding ticket. Ended up lowering the fine and it did not even go on my record.

Great Lawyer!
I highly recommend Ben for any case especially a traffic violation case. Ben was very professional and kept me informed throughout the whole process and made sure I knew what I was paying for. I have used other lawyers before and none of them compared to the professionalism and personal experience Ben shows.

Great Lawyer
Ben is a terrific lawyer! He has helped me with so much over the last two years. I do recommend him to all my friends who need a lawyer. I feel like he actually cares about my case and is always there to answer any legal question I have in a timely manner. He probably gets sick of me because I always feel like I am asking him questions!! He is very thorough though, and I have never been unhappy with any of his work. He's great!

Ben Borengasser helped me and my family get throught a very difficult time. I am a single working mother of two boys. My older son got himself in trouble and we were struggling with multiple and very serious violations. Ben not only strongly represented our case but aslo showed immense knowledge and strategic approaches through every facet of the process. He worked very hard for us and kept us updated every step of the way. The outcome of our case was favorable and Ben was able to make the whole process as smooth and as stress-free as possible.

Ben is Awesome!
I highly recommend Ben to any friend or family member in the unfortunate position of needing a divorce or child custody lawyer. He is the only lawyer I have met in this industry that has expressed genuine concern for my son and truly acted and advised me keeping the child's best interest in mind. I was very impressed with his thoughtfulness and also with his ability to question witnesses upon deposition. I hope to never need his services and not go through the hell that is a separation with children involved again, but for anyone in my shoes I would recommend Ben 100 % and guarantee that he will act in your best interest during the entire process.
