Ben Beveridge has three children, 13, 13 (twins) and 14. Like many non-custodial parents he was not OK with the possession schedule that was ordered by the Court in his case. He joined the Father's Rights Movement, eventually becoming a member of the Board of Directors for the national organization. Ben has worked hard each legislative session in Texas authoring and finding sponsors for bills that would give children equal access to both parents.
Shortly after completing his second engineering degree while working at Shell, he decided that his passion was not only family law reform but family law advocacy. His Law School Admission Test score earned him a scholarship which allowed him to quit work and be a full-time student. He graduated Magna Cum Laude and had the 2nd highest bar exam score from over 100 alumni who took the bar exam with him.
In his last semester of school, he personally filed suit in his own case and within months of becoming licensed to practice law, he had an order giving him equal access to his children. The case was mediated at the office where he now works, Goldsberry and Associates. He now enjoys the opportunity to meet clients in the same room where he sat and signed the agreement that led to his own 50/50 possession schedule.
Having personally been through the Texas family law system for years, Ben understands the need to change Texas family law. He has been involved in Texas family law reform for the past 8 years and understands that while improvements are being made in the laws, there is still much work to be done for Texas families. With this unique perspective and passion Ben brings an original and much needed style of representation to non-custodial parents.
