Mr Platt couldn't actually take my case, but he did offer me a lot of jumping off info, (for which I'm eternally grateful!). If finances were different, we would definitely ask him to represent us.
Wow. Mr Dudly is very patronizing and, indeed, rude. I had noted a previous complaint of his rudeness, but thought he may have just been having a bad day, but it seems to be a pattern. I found myself talking to him like he was holding me at gun-point. He scoffed at my lack of intelligence, when I responded that "no, I had NOT checked the status of the paperwork at Superior Court, and explained that THAT's what we were trying to hire an ATTORNEY to do".... Our situation is very dire, but I'm not settling for this man.
I'm not even going into my whole stituation but I've been dealing with it for almost 12 years, yea my son is 16. Ben & his staff are incredible on several different levels. I'm impressed because we were able to get resolution instead of trial but if we did need trial, he was so on point & ready to go. Ben is very knowledgeable & I appreciate the research and extra mile his staff goes. He is the first attorney to actually listen to me & have a logical augment for a modification of my parenting plan. I respect that he is very matter of fact & very honest with me about my case. I went into his office a mess and distraught two days before my court date with these crazy papers a fake paralegal had "helped" me with. Ben & his paralegal Jason fixed everything and made me feel like everything would be ok and it was. I knew I wasn't Bens only case, its a long process going through the courts, and ultimately it would be up to a judge if we went to trial. For the first time in my life I'm so happy I had Benjamin Platt for my attorney instead of one of my exes attorneys. I know its so stressful when your kids are involved and you're emotionally invested that's why I'm so thankful to Ben & his staff for being on my team. Benjamin Platt Law Office deserves many praises!
Mr. Platt is a fair and reasonable attorney. He is honest and trustworthy. His office staff is helpful and courteous. I would recommend the Law Office of Benjamin Platt over and over again.
Mr Dudley is very rude. I was trying to explain the situation to him and he kept interrupting me. He does not listen. He keep asking me what I have done to get my kids back from there father in the year he has had them. I told him several time that i had filed divorce papers with my local courts before my ex even took my kids out of California. He keep saying that i was not doing anything to get my kids back. i started the process before they left CA. HE IS EXTREMELY RUDE
While searching for an attorney to help me through a divorce, Mr Dudley's name came up through a co-worker. I reviewed several of the attorney rating sites and found varying reviews. I found that most, if not all of the negative reviews were from opposing parties. This only served to strengthen my opinion that Mr. Dudley was infact the person I wanted to represent me. I can say now that everything is finalized that I made the correct choice. Mr. Dudley is meticulous and his deductive and inductive reasoning skills are peak! I have already recommended him to others. His rates are very reasonable and the time and care he puts into your case will give ensure you are getting the highest quality representation!
