“Ben took all my worries to the bare minimum.”
Just the thought of having to get an attorney can be very stressful and having to do it unexpectedly can bring on anxiety that you have never felt, but Benjamin Kanani took all my worries to the bare minimum.
From the moment I sent him a message and he responded to me, I was sold. I spoke with several attorneys before speaking to him and there was nothing like his comforting conversation, patience, honesty and understanding! I would recommend Benjamin without thinking twice.
He is very thorough and doesn’t make you feel like he is all about the money and nothing else. You just don’t find loving people like him often. Yes I had to share details with him that no one ever thought they would have to, but Benjamin never made me feel less of a woman and even gave me great advice! I will forever be thankful and grateful for him. As I smile… Benjamin is stuck with me for life!!
Make Benjamin is your one stop! Look no further… His pure honesty is the best when under STRESS!!

“Ben handled an extremely difficult case and enabled me and my children to return to a normal, happy life.”
After 2 long years fighting to find where my kids were and finally starting the custody battle, I hired my first attorney, who wasn’t replying to my emails, phone calls, and wasn’t giving me updates. My case was just static until with God’s help, I finally find Ben. He’s a down to earth individual as well as an excellent attorney, extremely knowledgeable on custody actions.
After meeting with him for a consultation, I knew that this was the law firm for me. Ben handled an extremely difficult case and enabled me and my children to return to a normal, happy life. Ben was absolutely amazing during such a difficult time. Very attentive to my needs and fought for me every step of the way. They were professional, yet caring and understanding the entire process. They were prompt in their replies, organized and kept me informed during my entire case. I was amazed when I called Ben on Sunday, and he picked up the phone and gave me guidance.
Ben was more than just an attorney for me, he was a friend and brother. They are the only attorneys you need to consider. Again, I say…AMAZING!

“Ben is compassionate about fighting for your cause”
If I could give Benjamin a 10 out of 5 stars on character and professionalism, I would surely do so. This is one attorney that would alter your entire perspective of lawyers (which for most people is a dark and unpleasant one!).
The first time I talked to Ben on the phone, he showed genuine concern and analyzed my case from several different angles. When I met him, I was pleasantly surprised by his refined character and attentiveness. He is not only exceedingly proficient in family law but is also compassionate about fighting for your cause in his gentle and yet strong manner. He moves the case forward in the most timely manner possible as he makes every client’s case priority.
He is also very prompt in getting back to you when you communicate with him and would dedicate time and effort to answer all your questions and give clarification on every detail.
Above everything, Ben is an outstanding human being. His smile, kind and polite attitude, impeccable manners, and his sincere concern for others, makes him the attorney you feel blessed to work with. I highly recommend Ben to anyone with family law matters. Definitely a rare gem in the field!!!
