I used Ben for 2 different cases I had and I was 100% satisfied with his representation. He was always available to answer any questions I had and he filed everything within a timely manner and handled everything professionally, If I ever need representation again I will most definitely be using this law firm & John Benjamin Crabtree!

Attentive, timely lawyer
I had a minor ticket that almost turned into something major. But luckily I contacted Ben, and after a few days, several phone calls and at least two interviews he had negotiated a settlement that I could live with, and in the long run ended up being a blessing in disguise. I am grateful and would, and have kept Mr. Crabtree on retention.

Lacks compassion and customer service skills
I went to Ben Crabtree for help with an adoption case. He seemed fine until after I paid his retainer. my case was not a big money case as most of the work had already been done. After he received the retainer, he was very short when I tried to ask questions. He even criticized me for asking too many questions telling me that my case was not priority to him. I stopped trying to keep up with what was going on. He then reached a tentative agreement with the opposing lawyer. he called me asking me to agree to their terms without me even seeing anything in writing. . When I did not agree to the terms, he literally said this has been going on for some time now and I don't understand what the problem is. If he had been paying attention, he would have understood. I explained to him what had to be in the agreement for me. He called back and told me the other side agreed and I accepted. After, He did not send me a statement or anything regarding money. I knew I should get much of my retainer back because we did not go to court. I have called twice asking for a statement and a refund of unused retainer. The last time I called he said he would get it to me that week and that has been over 3 weeks ago. I felt uncomfortable with him from the start.

Divorce and separation Attorney | Feb 03
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"If you're marriage is on the rocks in Benton County, you need to see Ben Crabtree. A lot of these big city lawyers don't know anything about the value of your farmland and equipment, but Ben grew up on a turkey farm that he still helps run. In addition to a fine legal education at the U of A, he is the son of a judge and has been around the law his entire life, so he knows a thing or two they don't teach in books."
