The best
My experience when Ben couldn’t of been a better one. The amount of work and dedication he put into my case to make sure I got the best results possible was endless. His fight for me was tooth and nail and never felt more comfortable or safe then with him handling my case. Even after my case and Sentence he’s still looking after my future and couldn’t of chose better

Ben Crittenden took my case when other so called lawyers yawned at my case. My case was my life after being injured on the job and being thrown to the wolves by my kindly employer. I can say this that the law is written in favor of the State and Employer, but Ben persevered, where most would have given up. It is a disgrace the way the law is written within Alaska. Having said that, Ben Crittenden showed tremendous fortitude and honor on my behalf. He worked tirelessly, and after over a year and half, my case was settled in what most would consider a win. Most lawyers including judges could learn a thing or two about humility, honor, trust, and just downright roll up your gold cuff-links and work for your client...Corporations don't need lawyers except to escape justice, but individuals do to protect themselves from the predatory laws, rules, policies, and organizations who wrote and prey on those of us unfortunate to fall within their cross-hairs. Ben Crittenden is an honorable lawyer, and coming from someone who has studied the law, I say that very rarely. God Bless him and his family and I humbly thank you Ben....

Mr. Crittenden was a business associate, and when I had a car accident, I immediately thought of him to represent me. I was more than pleased at the results of my choice! Ben is the most fair, honest and forthright attorney I've ever known! That says a lot having worked for attorneys for decades. He represented me in a way, that if your family member was injured in an accident or harmed, that you would pursue all means and avenues to make them whole again. I felt like Ben was representing his "sister" in my case. He took care of dealing with the insurance companies, obtaining my medical records, communicating with the insurance company's attorney and making sure I had time to recover and obtain proper treatment before any considerations were made that would permanently seal my fate. By choosing Ben, you can rest assured, that you will be compensated to the fullest extent of what you are due, to become whole again, within the legal limits. Thank you Ben Crittenden! My life is better because of you!!

Ben Crittenden helped me when I needed it
I was injured by a dog I didn't know by simply taking a walk. It resulted in surgery and hardware in my leg, months on crutches in the winter, time off work, my leg will never be the same, I cannot: run, sit cross legged, kneel, crouch, and I experience pain daily. Ben took my case, kept me informed of the progress and got me a very fair settlement (it was much more than I expected) with care, persistance, and professionalism. Thank you Ben!

Best Lawyer YOu can ever ask for
Ben, is the best lawyer anyone can find. Trust me, I have had a lot of lawyers in my life and to me, lawyers are an expensive frustrating lot. But Ben is different. I first hired him, I was sceptical, but Ben proved to be the best lawyers I have ever had a chance to work with. He took time to learn about my case, never infrated the bill or worried about billing hours, researched the law, wrote every motion that needed to be filed and kept me informed regularly. Ben also took time to care about the person behind the client, and advocated for me vigorously. He is knowledgable about the law in Alaska, and the judicial process and when it came to making deals, he was very informed and briefed me regularly on what was doing. Trust me, this is the best you can get...

As an OUI attorney
Definitely had a hard time being kept inform of what was going on in my case. Even though I was paying him to be my lawyer he made me feel as though anytime I reached out to him and actually got him it was an inconvenience. I did not feel as though my case was as important to him and it was for me. If I had the chance to do it over again I would definitely have searched for a different lawyer. I was not satisfied or impressed.
