Benjamin Law is a Florida family law firm which takes on any case involving family law, including Florida divorce and paternity cases. Founded by Benjamin Carpenter, P.A., the firm is based out of Kissimmee. It also serves surrounding areas, including St. Cloud, Orlando, Winter Garden, Celebration, and Lake Buena Vista.
We have focused experience and insight into Florida divorce and family law. With family law, you aren’t litigating a contract or a piece of paper - you’re litigating people’s lives, which is very different from other areas of law, such as corporate or criminal. Our lead counsel, Benjamin Carpenter, is a second-generation family law lawyer. He grew up around and worked at his family’s law practice, received a legal education and participated in volunteer activities for the Florida Bar and American Bar Association before founding his own firm.
Benjamin Carpenter, P.A
Benjamin’s roots in Florida family law run deep with experience at his family’s law practice. After earning a degree in Hotel Management and managing/auditing hotels in South Florida, he decided his natural place was as a family law attorney. He went back to school to pursue his legal degree and worked at his family’s practice as an office manager while doing so. He graduated from Barry University Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law with a Children and Family Law Concentration and established his own practice.
Benjamin’s volunteer activities with both the Florida Bar and the American Bar Association have been in the area of ensuring that regular people can access affordable legal services in the areas of family law, including divorce and child custody. He has served on various committees to achieve this end and help his country, state, and community.
Benjamin’s complete immersion in family law coupled with his business education and experience ensure that his clients get efficient, caring and knowledgeable service. His approach to family law cases is simple - do the most efficient thing first before pursuing all of the avenues that the Florida justice system will allow to get the best outcome for his clients. Family law is a calling for Benjamin rather than a career, and it shows in his direct and personal approach to each case.
