I am so glad that I found and selected Ben Okin to represent me. Ben was responsive, efficient and effective throughout the whole process. He really took my personal needs into account and was able to negotiate a very fair deal that really suited me and was much better than I had hoped for. He was great about explaining the process and keeping me informed throughout. I really feel that he made special efforts to make sure that he looked out for my best interests. My case was complicated by the fact that I live out of the state but Ben was able to handle everything himself and I never even had to come back into California. If you need a lawyer, I highly recommend Ben Okin.

Ben really looked out for me in settling my case. We developed a professional relationship during the process and he was always available to answer any questions and concerns I had. He knows exactly what he's doing, and helped me both in settling my case, and in getting my life back in order. He has many connections in Humboldt county within both the police department and court system. All his cases are settled quickly and fairly. I'm really glad I found him on Avvo. I don't know what I would have done without him. He's top ranked for a reason. He's just a great all around guy. Thanks again Ben.

A few years ago a big ol USFS poser cop pulled me over, roughed me up and then lied about a lot of stuff, and got his ass handed to him in State and Federal court.
Ben showed him for what he was and I walked out like I should have.
Ben get's it done.

We are out of state residents who found ourselves in need of counsel to help with a traffic violation. We were referred to Ben by a former prosecutor in the area of Ben's practice. Ben was the ultimate professional from our first phone call through the final result. He responded immediately to our requests, (both by phone and e-mail), and kept us updated throughout the process. He was kind, attentive, and extremely knowledgeable. He was able to deliver the optimum result, and we are very grateful to him. He is a top notch professional dedicated to helping people. We can't recommend Ben Okin highly enough.

Ben Okin knows what he's doing. I sought his services during a particularly busy time at his office but he made time to check out my case. He was straightforward and mapped out a list of options quickly. At the end of the day, I felt educated about how to get through the local legal system. He advocated for a "best-case scenario" offense. That worked out well, and the final decision was the best-case scenario. His representation was absolutely pivotal. But even if things hadn't panned out perfectly, his counsel and experience would have been worth the reasonable fee.

I was looking at some serious time from my own stupidity. Benjamin Okin saved me. I avoided jail time and received an amazing deal that included my crime being reduced and then expunged from my record, which is almost unheard of. He's an extremely dedicated, talented and tenacious attorney. Best decision I could've made. Hire this man.

Benjamin Okin employs a combination of being both personable and professional, with an emphasis on being knowledgeable in his field.
I had a 10 year standing warrant that I wasn't sure I could handle without jail time. His rapport with the DA and judges smoothed the path for a positive outcome for all. I could hardly believe my good luck with choosing him as my attorney, and feel he was worth far more than his fee.

Mr. Okin is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and driven, all the while being personable and accessible. He handled a delicate, serious, and quite frightening issue for us tactfully and succinctly, and helped us understand the steps of the process, outlined possible and probable outcomes, and thoroughly explained what to expect along the way. He knows his colleagues on the other side of the aisle well and has a good relationship with them, which is, we’ve come to learn, not always the case and makes all the difference. I highly recommend him and his services, and have the utmost confidence in his determination and expertise.
