I provide no nonsense representation from retainer to resolution. I understand the difficulties built into the system and the realities faced by individuals when they have to litigate. Because my business model is completely different than the standard "law firm" business model, I find I can often provide representation in cases that other firms can't and work with the uniqe aspects of your case in a way that law firms don't. I believe the best attorneys get the best results by personally getting to know all the facts and circumstances of each case. Many lawyers claim they fight for you to extract emotion based fees. Many pretend to be big firms. That's where the misleading begins. Realistically, almost every lawyer settles almost every case. And today, creating an internet presence that looks like a big firm costs less than five hundred dollars. The service you get may be worth even less. Representation that begins with these misleading images usually ends with a less than optimal result. I provide no nonsense representation without the misleading imagery.

Clear and Definitive Answers
I asked specific questions regarding my situation. Alex was spot on with answers. Usually due to the complexity of situations one can get a yes and no answer, leaving the client in a dilemma, this is due to the complexity of the law, I am glad Alex has the art of dealing with complex situation and providing clarity. It was refreshing to talk to a professional who could give definitive answers. I wish Alex continued success.

Response from Alexander Bentsen July 12, 2016
Thank you, I believe we spoke during your Avvo Advisor sessions and you mentioned this review. I work hard to provide good advice during these consultation sessions. There are many types of issues that reasonable people regularly encounter, which can be resolved or greatly impacted just by getting sensible legal advice. Thank you for leaving this positive review and I hope you can resolve this issue after speaking with me during your Avvo Advisor sessions.

So helpful, I needed to gain a stronger understanding of what point of action should be taken next. We covered a few possibilities & I was really able to navigate how to go about the rest of my case.

Alex was very compassionate with the way that he listened to me throughout the conversation. I started out by informing him that I had already talked to several lawyers and that I would not waste his time. He told me that he had already spoken to countless others just like myself. He understood and was completely professional and positive during the process. Alex gave me peace of mind knowing that I am not alone in the issues which I am facing. He was extremely surprised by some of the new facts that I had given him during our interview together. It was a pleasure talking to a professional like him and I would choose him if there were any way at all to go further with my ordeal, but he told me that unfortunately these types of situations happen every day to many different people.

Went above and beyond!
Alex was very helpful in my landlord-tenant/eviction matter. I was able to speak with him even late at night. He provided a lot of useful information and potential legal strategies/defenses. Despite my having a very "unique" and challenging set of circumstances, he seemed to be very knowledgeable and on point. I particularly liked that he listened to my thoughts/ideas and valued them. If I can find the money to do so, I may hire him to appear with me in court.
