I started my on-line search for an attorney approximately 18 months ago. I didn’t know any lawyers in the Tacoma area, so I was relying on what I read in reviews to help me select the legal council to help me through my intimate committed relationship breakup and the ensuing custody battle for our child. When I met with Jason he quickly gained an understanding of my situation, was confident from the start and offered a clear and concise path forward to address my unique situation. My case ended up in trial in spite of efforts to negotiate a settlement. The trial process was difficult emotionally, but from Jason’s command of the court room, his rapport with the Judge and court personnel and his tight grasp on legal matters it was clear he was absolutely the best lawyer in the courtroom. The end result of trial was precisely as Jason had predicted, and for some items even more in my favor. I was awarded a large sum of money and custodial parent with a great parenting plan for my child.
In addition, he prices his legal services as a flat fee, no matter how much effort is required to get resolution. At first I was skeptical, but after going through many, many unplanned court hearings and a full 4 day trial, my legal costs were about 15% of what the other side had spent. In summary, best lawyer in the courtroom, achieved best possible outcome and was by far the lowest cost alternative. No doubt in my mind, he was absolutely the best attorney for me and I’d recommend him unequivocally to anyone looking for family law council.

Jason is awesome! I interviewed several attorneys before deciding to hire Jason for a major modification to our parenting plan resulting in change of primary custody and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Jason fought for me and my children through 3 separate hearings and trial. He explained to me what was going to happen in the beginning and it all happened exactly as he said it would from start to finish.
The thing I appreciated the most about Jason is he is a fighter. He thought of his own kids when considering what was acceptable for mine; he genuinely cared. Even when we "won", if the outcome wasn't entirely acceptable he would appeal and continue the fight until we got everything we wanted. The way he presented in the courtroom was nothing less than impressive, I could mention something to him minutes prior and he incorporated it into his speech seamlessly.
I can not say enough good things and I am so grateful to Jason and his staff, Melissa, Lindsay. Our trial ended just yesterday and I now have custody of my 3 children thanks to them. I can not thank them enough for what they were able to accomplish for our family.

Jason has been my attorney for many years. His law firm has a team of professional that come highly recommended. There experience and knowledge in divorce proceedings are paramount. He has represented me well in all my court proceedings with successful results. He is also well versed in military rules and regulations regarding spousal support and entitlements. I would highly recommend him to former military spouses and/or military service members. My experience with him as my representative has been outstanding. Thank you Jason for all you've done.

When I first arrived to my consultation with Jason, he greeted me and already knew about my case. He did his research prior to my arrival. Was a great feeling and refreshing how well prepared he was, for our consultation. I immediately knew, I wanted his assistance with my cases. Jason and Melissa (paralegal) have been phenomenal during my two cases. They’re on it! And on top of that they’re friendly, sharp, straight forward, easy to talk to, gives quick responses, questions are answered and have a take charge approach. LOVE IT!!! I’m extremely thankful and grateful to have them on my side. I’m a satisfied customer!

Jason came by recommendation and while I was hesitant on going with the first lawyer I spoke with, I am happy I did. He is very knowledgable; he was upfront with me from the beginning and the final result of my case was exactly what we had anticipated. Most family related cases are highly emotional, and Jason handled everything with compassion and also a sense of humor. I feel confident in referring this attorney to anyone I know. He is worth every penny!

I hired Jason on a whim, hoping for the best and I'm so glad I did! Jason's team was very thorough, my case was very complex and the other party was doing nothing that they were supposed to. Jason ensured they were held accountable for their actions, and was able to argue and prove our points time and time again. My case lasted for about 10 months, there were times where I felt defeated, but Jason ensured everything was going to turn out fine, and it definitely did! Jason made sure I was up to date on every detail, didn't miss a motion or a chance to appeal anything. I felt completely confident in his ability to represent me, which is HUGE when it comes to the most important thing in a parent's life, your children.
His paralegals kept in constant contact with me, and were nothing but friendly and professional(even when I was being a stressed out, hard to deal with client:)
I would HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend Jason. His team is fantastic, welcoming and doesn't miss a beat! Worth every penny I spent!!

After wasting a ton of money on consultation fees with lawyers who told me that exact opposite of what I wanted to hear I found Jason around 4:50 PM on a Monday. I called his office and explained the custody situation that was currently going on in another state and they told me to come in THAT EVENING to get everything sorted out!
Jason stayed at his office for quite a while past closing time to help calm me down and figure out our case. He then had the papers filed to get the court case switched to Washington before the end of the week! He wasted no time helping us out!
I received daily emails and calls from Mr. Benjamin and his staff to keep me updated every step of the way. Not only did he stay late for us, but Mr. Benjamin also came in early to help us with a hearing that was going on in Texas.
He got my case switched to Washington and has helped untangle this crazy case we've had going on for almost 2 years.
I'm so thankful to have found Mr. Benjamin, he did so much for us and cost us a lot less than anyone else would! I would recommend anyone who needs help in a custody situation contact Jason and his team!

First off let me say, I did quite a bit of research. When I initially contacted his office, they wanted to put me with another partner within the firm. I politely declined and they got me scheduled quickly with Jason! The consultation was excellent and I love that it was a flat rate, so I knew he wouldn't nickel and dime me (so to speak) as most attorneys do. He never promised me anything, but he predicted everything that came to be true in the end. He had my whole case wrapped up within 6 months (which was quicker than he thought). He was absolutely flawless. He can be a bit tricky to get ahold of by phone, but you can make an appointment to see him in person or by phone ANYTIME. I did both several times. He is a busy attorney that is highly sought after and that is why it can be tricky. He will always make the time for you. Also, Travis and Melissa are a flawless part of his team that you will come to know just like Jason. I would hire him in the blink of an eye again & again & again. In fact, I have one more separate matter that I will hire him for on a later date down the road.

After being disappointed by several lawyers and wasting a ton of money with no results, I was referred to Jason about 3 weeks before trial. Jason took it on with no problem. He knows his stuff and is to be feared in the courtroom for this reason. I would love to just sit and watch him in the courtroom against another lawyer because he is that good. It was just such a relief to find a lawyer and get a resolution to a 4 year long divorce and custody battle. Other circumstances lead to full custody that he didn't know about but it still all worked out in my favor to have him on my side. Reasonably priced too. I can't thank Jason enough for helping me finally close this case. I agree with all the other users reviews in favor of him. He has a good sense of humor but knows when to be serious too and being easy on the eyes doesn't hurt either! My parents (who attended court with me) and I were very impressed. Thank you Jason! No doubt if I ever need help again, I will know who to call and I highly recommend him.

When I was 21 I had a child out of wedlock with a man I barely knew and unfortunately he was an abusive, scary individual. I needed a lawyer and protection order fast and Jason was on it. He was my lawyer for 5 long years and he represented me for protection/restraining orders and a step parent adoption. He was more than just some lawyer, he really looks out for you and cares like you were his family. He is compassionate and has a great sense of humor. Aside from that he is professional, quick to file documents with the court and puts up one hell of a fight during trial! If you want to protect your family he is the man you want respresenting you. He won my case and my child is finally safe and happy with the dad who has raised her since she was a baby and now is legally her dad. I cannot thank him enough for everything he has done for my family!!
