Jason Benjamin has spent the past 22 years of his legal career (since 1995) immersing himself in the intricacies of family law and particularly child custody cases. He has personally handled more than 1000 cases where child custody is at issue.
He particularly welcomes families who have emergency custody, domestic violence or restraining order issues, as he can typically obtain appropriate orders within hours to protect you and the children.
From the beginning of his legal career, Jason has aggressively advocated on behalf of victims of domestic violence (even when domestic violence was not treated seriously by the courts). He understands the complexities of domestic violence such as why victims often return to abusers or leave their children with abusers before they make the final decision to permanently leave the abuser.
Jason utilizes his years of experience in the trenches of hard fought child custody trials to competently advise parties on the best route to tackle complicated and intertwined issues of mental health (particularly cluster b personality disorders such as histrionic, borderline, narcissistic and anti-social) and chemical dependency (particularly abuse of alcohol, opiates, methamphetamines and benzodiazepines).
When it comes to the courtroom, Jason is extremely comfortable and puts his clients at ease. There is no case too complex or too extreme for Jason to be willing to take it on. He is known by his colleagues for his confidence and persuasive argumentative skills and his trial experience is nothing short of prodigious. Many lawyers in the community are aware of his trial advocacy and often refer their clients to him for cases that are headed for trial.
Jason left Omak, Washington at 18 years of age and went off to the big city of Chicago where he attended Northwestern University. After obtaining his BA in Philosophy, he came back to Washington State and graduated from Seattle University School of Law in 1995. He and his wife have two daughters and enjoy various outdoor adventures.

Jason took over my case after another attorney put my child in complete danger by overlooking severe non-compliance and drug abuse by her mother for the sake of more money. Hiring Jason was the best decision I have ever made! Immediately, we were back in court and I had my daughter. I went from a court case that I felt was sinking fast to finally ME making the decisions and having my child in a safe place. That could not have happened without Jason by my side fighting for my family! Thank you! Read lessRead less

My ex is an addict, although neither I, nor my highly ineffective previous attorney could get the courts to believe us, so he was given 50/50 custody. Within a week of hiring Jason, he was able to get the courts to order drug tests, and I was finally able to get my son out of that environment. From the moment I met Jason, I was blown away by his effectiveness, speed, and accuracy. He is amazing and unbelievably good at his job. I thank God that I found him, I only wish it could have been sooner. Read lessRead less
