Tuve un accidente cuando hiba en rumbo a casa del trabajo. Una amiga me recomendo con el abogado Ben. Me dieron cita con el abogado el mismo dia, me mandaron al Doctor el mismo dia y me ayudaron con mi reclamo para las reparaciones de mi troca. Gracias a dios no tuve lastimaduras muy graves. El chriopractico me ayudo mucho y es muy bueno. Estoy muy satisfecha porque no tuve que pagar nada, me ayudaron para que todos mis gastos medicos fueran pagados y quede contenta con lo que el abogado me recupero. A todos les digo que Vayan con Ben!

Hired only because he was recommend and that was a big mistake.
An attorney who does not specialize in accident cases should not take the clients on and not give them 100%.
Lack of communication between Victoria and myself was absolutely horrible. No call backs, no updates no nothing. I was very very unsatified with the whole overall outcome as well. They also tell you 33% but what they also fail to tell it more like 66%
Karma does come around.

I found Benjamin online and called his office late on a Wednesday. I spoke with him directly and was able to agree to terms over the phone. Once I went to his office with my information and I hired him for my case. The lady in the office was pleasant and very helpful and I never even had to show up to court. Everything was taken care of easily and I couldn't have been happier with my experience.

I did not hire Ben Durham, Ben was appointed to my case at my arraignment. My charges were Count 1. Conspiracy to violate uniform controlled substances act. Count 2. Trafficking in Controlled Substance.
I explained to Ben I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I knew my friends were Drug Dealers and i also knew I wasn't a saint.. They lost contact with each other and my friend called me and asked me to fly down from Seattle to help find his partner. Within 4 hours of arriving we were arrested. I knew because of a prior Felony conviction I might be looking at some time.
Ben started immediately counseling me with his thoughts on what I should do. He assured me he would do everything in his power to avoid prison time. I was released on my own PR and flew home to Seattle and immediately reported to Probation. I did everything they asked, a couple UA's per month starting out, along with enrolling in a 1 year Intensive Outpatient Drug Treatment Program. I also started going to 4 AA meetings per week and had my court slipped signed to provide to Ben, Probation and my Judge.
I knew in my mind that if I was going to get any kind of a DEAL I had to prove myself.
I received my Pre-Sentence Investigation Report from Probation and they were asking for 97 months In-Custody and 3 years Probation. WOW!
Ben suggested I get some letters from friends and family to provide to the Judge. He said the decision is up to the Judge! I immediately started asking everyone for a Reference letter. Ben said you have a lot of letters, I think i had 40 letters from family, friends, friends in AA (alcoholics anonymous) and my Doctor.
I was so nervous at my sentencing almost 2 years form the date I was arrested. Ben was so calm, cool and collected. He spoke on my behalf about all the work I was doing to change my life. I really was so blessed to have Ben representing me!
When the Honorable Judge Gordon read the 58 pages of the Sentencing Memorandom that Mr Benjamin Durham prepared I knew I was represented with the Best Counsel in Las Vegas!
I was given a huge deal. 3 years supervised probation, a $200. fine and 100 hours of Community Service. Judge Gordon read every page submitted to him and could sense from all the letters that I was serious about changing my life and instead of wasting away in Prison I could more benefit my community by being of service and helping those still struggling with addiction.
I am happy to say that I am compliant with my Conditions of Release, Ive completed my 100 hours and paid my fine.
I am the GSR (general service representative) of my AA Homegrown and also the Public Information Rep for my District here in Washington.
I don't know what my life would look like currently if I didn't have Ben Durham in my corner over 2 years ago when I was arrested. I have the utmost respect for Ben and he is welcome in my home anytime he comes to Seattle.
I witnessed 2 miracles within a couple weeks! The first 1 was the Seattle Seahawks beating the Green Bay Packers in the final minutes to win the NFC Championship only to lose the SuperBowl to New England in the final minute!
But the second miracle was at my sentencing. All my prayers and hard work is starting to pay off. All Praise, Glory and Honor goes to God! I am ever so humble!
In closing, if your back is against the wall and you need Counsel, I recommend Benjamin Durham and his Staff. They will work hard on your behalf. I guarantee it! Thanks again Ben, your the best!

Mr. Durham was the best thing that could have happened to me. I was on probation for a prior offense, 4 years in on a 5 year probation my officer tried to violate my probation as I was not working and could not pay the fines. I was facing 14-48 months in NDOC. He answered every question I had. When the 1st date neared the told me he was going to ask for an extension to review the case. I had to sit in CCDC for 30 days I was sad and scared about this but when my 2nd court date (revocation hearing) came I knew I was in good hands. My judge was Valarie Adair and with my probation officer there stating false accusations Mr. Durham stood up for me. He responded to the Probation officer and brought attention to the judge of all the good things I had done during my time. He was able to give me a "Dishonorable Discharge" from probation. *This occurred because I could not pay the probation fees, if not it would have been an Honorable discharge. For the 1st time in 4yrs I was able to walk out a free man, with no fear of going to prison or meeting a curfew. Best Lawyer in Vegas!

This was my first car accident and my first time for using a lawyer also. It was all so overwhelming. Ben, April and everyone at the office was very helpful in helping me deal with this situation. I was (most of the time) very upset and had so many questions. They took their time answering any questions I had and I am sure I was not the easiest client at times, but they understood and walked me through it. I would recommend them to anyone going through this awful experience of a car accident, but as awful as it is, they make it easier.

It was a terrible experience, I was recommend by a chiropractor who told me he would handle my case and get me as much money as possible for my car accident. My mistake, I was gullible to go ahead and hire him to handle my case, knowing that Benjamin and this chiropractor are buddies and have lunch together often. My car accident happened in August of 2012, and Benjamin and his office dropped me as an client in the end of March 2013. In the mist from August 2012 to March 2013 was an utterly big mess and mistake - I met and spoke with Benjamin only once within that time frame, I had to deal with his is assistant April who was very unprofessional and unpleasant. I was so disappointed in myself for being gullible and listing to the Chiropractor, these two have a business deal together - how could I not see that sooner? Frustrating month after month, dealing with April and getting no results with my case, I was getting aggravated and impatient. Enough was enough, it has been almost an whole year and no progress was happening? My boyfriend and I had enough and due to my boyfriends "aggressive" attitude to get my case moving, Benjamin and his office dropped me as a client. They dropped me and told me that they couldn't deal with my boyfriends personality, in the end it worked out for me because I still got my settlement money. Long story short, I highly do not recommend this law office, take your valuable time somewhere else.

i hired durham for my boyfriends case. he was so informative, and he totally spoke my language when it came to legal terms and what not. not once did he ever talk to me like i was of a lesser intelligence. excellent, genuine representation in the court room. its a relief to know theres still genuine defense available that will work to get you (and your loved ones) the outcome that you DESERVE without sacrificing an arm and a damn leg.....ya know?
