Meet experienced family law attorney and divorce lawyer, Ben Carrasco.
I am a Stanford-educated family law and litigation attorney based in Austin, Texas. Before starting my own firm, I practiced business litigation at a top corporate law firm. In other words, I’m not your typical divorce lawyer. My firm was founded on the idea that families going through challenging times deserve the same caliber of representation as the Fortune 500 clients I used to represent.
My family law practice spans all areas of family law, including:
In addition to family law, I continue to practice general civil litigation.
My firm is distinguished not only by the credentials I bring to the table but by the way I practice law – relentlessly focused on providing unparalleled client service and aggressively preparing cases for trial, not just settlement. The most common complaint clients have about their divorce lawyer is lack of communication. That does not happen with me. I am committed to being available to my clients, including outside of normal business hours. This isn’t just marketing babble. Read my reviews and you’ll see that I practice what I preach. Second, I’m not afraid of the courtroom. Many divorce lawyers in Austin pressure clients to settle the case early because trials are unpredictable and require hard work. I became an attorney precisely because I enjoy going to trial. To be sure, most cases should, and do, settle before trial. I never discourage a client from offering or accepting a fair settlement proposal. But I never shy away from the courtroom and develop a case with the expectation that it will go to trial.
