Highly recommend
Highly recommend Ben. Ben and me worked on my five patents together last year. It is really a wonder experience. Ben has very good communication skills and is a good listener too. Ben can quickly understand the essentials of our invents and draft it very quickly too.

Great Attorney
Ben handled a case for my wife and I that went to court very quickly. Ben came up to speed rapidly and prepared us well for the courtroom experience. Ben was very efficient and thorough in our preparation. He grasped the critical components right away and spent what little time we had only on what mattered. Ben communicates well without being intimidating or too complicated. He is calm and under control which helps under the stressful situation that a court appearance provides. We always felt that we could ask whatever questions we had and Ben took the time to explain in plain language. Our overall experience was excellent and I would recommend Ben highly.
