Client Testimonials

“When facing what I knew was going to be a difficult divorce, I needed an attorney that would have my best interest and my children's best interest at heart. I could not have made a better decision when I hired Ben Stevens as my attorney. Ben argued tirelessly, even when faced with what seemed to be impossible situations. I highly recommend Ben Stevens to anyone facing difficult family law issues.” — David, Client

“Like most attorneys, Ben has his client’s best interest as a first priority and understands what's important to them; however, the differentiator was Ben's responsiveness and sense of urgency on getting back to his clients. Response time was important to me given the geographic disparity and nature of my case as well as the anxiety it carried with it. In addition to Ben's prompt communication, he was very outcome-oriented and when working with his clients re-directs their mindset to think of the facts of the case and not the emotion (data and facts will steer the direction of the case). Moreover, he was transparent and shared an opposing view (not to discourage) but to facilitate the decision-making process. While Ben's communication and creativity toward results were equally important, what I really liked about Ben was his ability to identify with my case and relate back to his experiences and not just look at my case as revenue stream for his firm.” — Christopher, Client

“I hired Attorney Ben Stevens to handle my divorce. He always listened to my concerns and gave me great advice!! He even gave me advice I didn't want to hear because I was only thinking emotionally and not realistically. Most importantly, he was ALWAYS available for any problem I may have, always responded quickly and he fought for me!!! Since my divorce I've recommended him a few times and will continue to do so. He's an AMAZING attorney and I want to THANK him for helping me through a very difficult time of my life!!” — Dawn, Client
