Title: Great Lawyer!
Ben was my divorce lawyer. It was a messy divorce and I was terrified. Ben was not only thorough and knowledgeable, but kind and comforting when I was nervous and upset. He won the case for me, and the outcome was better than I ever could have hoped for! I will forever be grateful and would highly recommend Ben to anyone needing an attorney.
