A marriage isn’t only an expression of love. It’s also a legal arrangement, and as such, many states have laws on the books dictating that when a person dies, their spouse becomes their de facto heir or guardian of their estate.
Retirement is an exciting milestone. Planning becomes even more crucial, once you get within a few years of saying goodbye to your career. As we turn 60 and inch closer to retirement, there are important questions to answer.
Your annual earnings determine the amount you will receive from Social Security in retirement. However, incorrect or omitted earnings could cause you to miss out on thousands of dollars in retirement benefits. It’s up to individual employees to spot mistakes and take action to correct them.
If you plan to pass your business to your offspring, there is more to keep in mind when creating your succession plan than your descendants—there are also their spouses—especially if they become ex-spouses.

Ben is a rare example of a highly intelligent attorney that has chosen to apply his knowledge to a place that is often overlooked and vastly under-served and that is small businesses and entrepreneurs. In my work, it is difficult to find qualified legal resources for my clients that they can afford and benefit from. Ben has a long-term vision for his clients rather than the desire to simply post billable hours.

Gets the job done - even when "curve balls" are sent. Thanks Ben!

I liked working with Ben because he strives to do law without all the overblown and hard to understand lingo. I like to be clear & accurate in my business transactions and he helped my business by creating legal documents that reflect that. He doesn't have a "Whereas" or "Heretofore" in his body - that's my kind of lawyer.
– C. Traxler
Knowing Ben and the very practical way he approaches business, I am always enlightened by talking and working with him. Not a "regular" lawyer, Ben knows business from the real world and has the tools to help.

Ben was referred to me by a trusted advisor who had worked with him in the past concerning buying a company. Ben is great to deal with, he took time to explain the buy/sell process and answer questions. He is easy going, friendly and knowledgeable. He is very good at what he does.
