About me

For many years I worked for a big criminal defense firm in Los Angeles. While working at the firm, I handled over 750 DUI cases and DMV hearings, and more than 300 other criminal matters, which included drugs, theft, sexual and violent crimes. By handling so many cases and working with so many different attorneys, I gained the experience and expertise that it takes most private criminal defense attorneys decades to obtain in a small practice. I was also privileged to have the opportunity to be trained by an ex-DMV hearing officer, and a 25 year experienced federal public defender. Even though this helped me gain experience at the time, I realized that in order to do my best on every case, I had to limit the amount of cases I could take on. Working at a big firm you do not get to decide how many cases you take on, you are simply given an inventory of clients.


The big difference between hiring a big firm to handle your case and hiring my office is that I will personally handle every aspect of your case, I will stay in constant communication with you, and my clients can rest assured that they will receive personalized attention because now I have the ability to limit the number of cases I take on.


During my time working for a big defense firm I covered all areas of criminal litigation including felonies and misdemeanors as a lead trial attorney. I achieved incredible results in complex cases, where the defendants were facing career threatening circumstances through negotiations or prevailing in trial.


I managed the DMV division of the firm, overseeing all attorney’s DMV hearings and briefs. I earned this position after achieving many DMV victories, and getting bad decisions overturned by the Superior court. Recordings of my DMV hearings were later used to train other attorneys. Since the majority of the cases I handled were DUI cases, I was trained and certified in standardized field sobriety testing, various breathalyzer devices, and police procedure in DUI investigations. My expertise and track record gave me the opportunity to lecture other attorneys in DUI defense seminars. My experience in DUI cases also gave me the ability to build close relationships with numerous court prosecutors and judges. Most importantly, I learned to make sure that every case gets the attention and expertise it deserves because I want to give my clients hope and peace of mind in knowing they are being well taken care of.

  • Troy Slaten

    I endorse this lawyer with gusto!!!! Ben is not only an amazingly gifted attorney, he is a really nice guy. His ability to get what he wants from judges and prosecutors alike is something that many lawyers envy. One thing about Ben, he returns phone calls so very promptly. Although the biggest complaint folks have about their attorney is lack of communication, you will never experience that with Ben!
