Atty. Van Severen has a new review on Google! Check it out on our Google Plus, or below:

Ben is the best attorney I could have asked for. Throughout my whole case, he was very professional and I felt that he truly wanted the best outcome for me. He was always honest with me, and whenever I had questions, he was very quick to respond. He always let me know what to expect before going to court, which really helped calm my anxiety going into it. I would 100% recommend Ben Van Severen as an attorney.

U.S. District Judge claims "Ted Kaczynski has less restrictive confinement than the youth at Lincoln Hills."

Making matters worse, prison staff have nothing except excuses for how the children they're imprisoning are treated. Brian Gustke, security director, blamed "high turnover and vacancies in prison staff [and] 'confusion on everyone's part, staff as well as the youth.'"

Around 1% of cops charged with shooting-related crimes are convicted. Civilians charged with similar offenses are convicted at a much higher rate. We believe that hiring experienced, aggressive criminal defense counsel increases your chance of a not-guilty verdict.
