Great work

Ben was great to work with. He’s really smart, straightforward, and helped me come to a good resolution.


Impeccable Representation

Ben was amazing at dealing with my case with a very short turn around time. Melanie was awesome at communicating all the necessary information to help me meet court deadlines and filing of documents. I felt very comfortable communicating my concerns. Ben was extremely kind and professional. He made the time to understand the nuances of my case and prepared me for my day in court. I would not hesitate to recommend him if you are in need of an attorney. Thanks to him I now have majority parenting time with my kiddo. I couldn’t ask for more! Thank you for your amazing dedication to my family. I am forever grateful.


Excellent attorney. Very knowledgeable and responsive. 10/10 experience using Ben King for my divorce.


Amazing Attorney!

I cannot express thankful I am for Ben! I had a high conflict and extremely difficult case that I felt was a lost cause. Ben did an outstanding job with resolving issues in my favor, he walked me through Every step of the process, and showed unbelievable faith & compassion for me and the situation we were in. I could not be more satisfied & happy with his representation, & I am forever grateful!


Wonderful and Very Helpful

Ben and his team are very upstanding and wonderful! I’m so thankful for the help with my case. His paralegal Miranda is also very helpful. Ben helped me be the voice I needed. I would highly recommend Ben.


Outstanding Lawyer

Ben was instrumental in securing a favorable judgement in an alimony case that was far from clear cut. Ben set expectations and was very helpful communicating effectively every step of the way. Bens attention to detail and concise preparation, combined with his expert knowledge won this case. I would highly recommend Ben for any family law needs.


Top notch

Ben and his staff have been absolutely phenomenal every step of the way. He is always on top of everything, responds very quickly, and has fought for me and my kids. I highly recommend him!


Get Ben on your side

I’m an attorney, but I don’t practice family law – and I know what I don’t know. That’s why I hired Ben for my divorce case. Ben’s experience and skill was critical in getting my potentially contentious case settled at mediation. He was efficient and focused on my goals throughout, and I refer any family and divorce issues I see in my office over to him without hesitation.


Fierce defender of children and families

We recently needed to hire an attorney due to some messy legal issues that involved protecting our young son. We had on going litigation in another state against my ex husband, involving addiction issues, and needed to find representation here. We interviewed five different attorneys, all with 5 star reviews. Within our phone call with Ben, we knew he was the one. He was instantly understanding of the intricacies of our case, and came up with a plan for how we could protect our son. He also we incredibly empathetic to our family, and this really meant a lot. Ben’s knowledge and awareness of the law were instrumental to getting a favorable ruling from the judge in protecting our son. You can’t put a dollar amount on that. Ben pays attention to details, stays on top of forward movement in his cases, and is proactive. We originally felt powerless and fearful in our legal journey, but Ben turned everything around for our family and our son. I cannot recommend him enough!


Ben is an absolute god send!

Ben king and his paralegal staff were absolutely a god send. I was going through a very stressful child custody case; Ben listened to what I wanted and acted accordingly. He was also very thoughtful about breaking down some of the legal jargon so that I could understand it. Ben never did anything without my permission, so I was never surprised by the cost. On a personal note, I felt that he was very down to earth and relatable. I would HIGHLY recommend Ben, and I will be keeping him as my lawyer should the need arise.


Attorney for my divorce

Ben and his paralegal Miranda were great and did an amazing job. I would recommend them for anyone for their divorce.

-Patty Job

Peace of Mind

Mr. King and his staff have gone above and beyond for me with my case. They were on top of everything and truly cares. They have made my unfortunate life change very calming and easy. They have supported me and walked me through every step so I fully understood and felt comfortable. Ben doesn’t sugar coat anything for you, you is truthful and honest and extremely professional.


Timely, determined and empathetic lawyer

I didn’t know what I was missing in a lawyer, until I interviewed Ben. I began my divorce with a different attorney and was dissatisfied, so I was on the search for a new one when I found Ben. When I interviewed Ben, I felt heard for the first time. I didn’t feel rushed or put on the sidelines. I always felt like my case was just as important to him as it was to me. One of the things I loved about working with Ben was his ability to point out my options, as it is hard to see for yourself in the fog of divorce. He was a trusting guide through the whole process. Ben was able to lead my case to settlement and we were able to avoid court, which is something I never thought would happen when I first began this journey. I’m very thankful to have worked with a lawyer who demonstrated integrity, timeliness and bold leadership. I am extremely satisfied with my experience working with Ben and would choose him again.



Great staff and Ben was so helpful and amazing. They helped me through a parenting issue and I needed the help. Through this crazy time the whole staff was always there any time I needed answers and help.


Best Attorney Available

I hired Ben in April of 2019 to assist me with post decree, relocation custody matter. It was a tricky case made only trickier by my ex. Ben was steadfast, proactive, professional and always kept his recommendations in my best interest and not to extend billable hours. Ben and his paralegal, Miranda were amazing. Very prompt on all responses and motions and always available to talk me through the insanity that these matters create. I would recommend Ben to anyone who needs assistance with a family matter and would recommend getting a divorce just to be able to do business with him. My family is better off for having had him help us.


Highly Recommend! I am so grateful for Ben King.

I deeply appreciate the representation provided by Ben King. My case was in regard to changing custody arrangements for my son. Mr. King was incredibly supportive and listened to ALL of my concerns, and answered my many questions thoroughly. He helped me to understand which of my expectations were realistic and which were not, and where he really stood out was when he explained the different options we had within those parameters. I previously had a different lawyer who was dismissive and condescending about my concerns, and I was so anxious about working with another lawyer. Ben King was the complete opposite and provided an entirely positive experience – he showed that he genuinely cared.

Mediation was a very emotional process, and I cannot compliment Mr. King enough on how supportive and understanding he was. He dealt with our situation with amazing sensitivity, understanding, creativity, and attention to detail. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the processes and issues involved — this, combined with his listening and people skills, helped me to feel confident and reassured going into such an emotionally fraught situation. At several points during mediation when I was not sure what to do, he gracefully intervened and helped me sort through my thoughts and options. When I was not able to explain my stance very well, he was great at finding a way to state it clearly and concisely.

Since I am a full-time student and had limited funds available, he went the extra mile and explained exactly how he charges and what he did to ensure he used his time on my case efficiently and with fairness. When we had to make decisions that would affect my wallet, he was very conscientious of this and explained my options and respected my choices, all while making sure I was still receiving the service needed for our case.

I believe that together we negotiated the best possible outcome given the circumstances, and I am so grateful to Mr. King. His knowledge, professionalism, intuition, sensitivity, and experience made such a difference in me and my son’s lives. It truly means a lot that Mr. King played such a huge role in achieving a positive custody outcome through mediation. With utmost sincerity, thank you Ben!

Side note – his staff are also super prompt and on top of things and were so lovely to work with!


Great Communication

Ben and Charmain were compassionate and communicative with my case. They were able to deliver a last minute solution that both parties agreed upon.


Great Divorce Lawyer and Advocate

Ben is knowledgeable and has a great temperatment to navigate the murky waters and high emotions of divorce and family law. I will recommend him to anybody needing a family lawyer.

Ben helped me negotiate a new parenting plan with my ex-wife. We only had to go through mediation and didn’t have to take it to court, much thanks to his understanding and guidance that he offered me. He made himself available to answer questions I had when I needed.


Outstanding Communicator

Mr. King was professional throughout the entire divorce process. I was kept informed of everything that was going on between both parties as well as the court. The discussions I had with Ben were detailed and firm as required, but I always knew that my best interests were being protected.


Diligent, Honest and Caring

Mr. King was a pleasure to work with, from the initial consultation to the final outcome. He always shot straight from the hip, providing his honest opinion within the laws but was open-minded to hear my desires and to do his best to work towards that end. I always felt that Mr. King and his paralegals prepared me for the next steps throughout the entire process and put my mind at ease during some very heavy moments. If you are looking for an attorney who not only knows the law but also takes the time to know you as a person and truly looks out for the children’s interests (that’s really what this is all about, isn’t it?) then I can’t recommend Mr. King highly enough. These types of legal battles are never anything that anyone wants or desires but it sure is much more manageable with a team like Ben and Company.


Professional and compassionate

Ben walked my through the process and helped me feel at ease with it. He was very professional and worked very hard to resolve a complex situation. I am satisfied with the result and feel it was fair to both parties.
I will definitely recommend Ben to anyone that may find themselves in need of a Family Law attorney.


I was worry free!

He handled everything in a very timely fashion. He was available for any questions or discussion at any time and what I appreciated the most about Ben and his team was their genuine concern and care for me as their client. I highly recommend Ben and his team for any type of divorce case without a doubt.

Both Ben and his paralegal Vickie assisted me with a very sticky situation with my ex husband in a re-negotiation reagrding child support, parenting time, & allimony.
