I’ll always be thankful. Besides Benton, all the staff we worked with at Beermann Law LLP were terrific: competent, professional, and personable.

Rating: 5 Stars I started working with Ben as my attorney on my divorce years ago, and cannot overstate how much I have appreciated his wise and measured counsel over the years. He was able to stay focused on the big picture dealing with custody and financial matters – and was incredibly responsive (and effective) years later when I had an emergency. He’s transparent about what is / isn’t worth the cost, time, or energy, and I felt he always had my best interests – and those of my children – at heart, even and maybe especially when my emotions could have taken over. I’m so glad to have him working with and for me! – Gina 2021
