Ben just worked with us on a case, and I have to say it was the best experience with any lawyer that I have ever had. He was caring, professional, and most of all I felt like I was working with a friend. He is smart, and so knowledegable about our case from every angle. I would recommend Ben Mironer to anyone I know looking for an host and hard working lawyer.
