Attorney Profile

A founding partner at Older Lundy Alvarez & Koch, Attorneys at Law, Benjamin Older focuses his practice exclusively on family law matters, as he has done for most of his legal career. He is located in the firm’s offices in Tampa, Florida, and while he has represented clients all over Florida, he primarily represents clients throughout Hillsborough, Pinellas and Dade counties.

Mr. Older attended the University of Southern California as an undergraduate, where he studied communications and psychology and received a Bachelor of Arts in 1993. After he graduated USC he spent some years traveling in Europe and Latin America (where he worked as a musician, taught English and became fluent in Spanish).  When he returned home to the U.S., he attended the University of Miami School of Law and in 2002 began his law practice in Florida.

As a family law attorney, Mr. Older's core practice is in divorce, paternity and domestic violence cases.  However, these types of cases give rise to many complex and challenging issues involving timesharing (formerly called “custody”), alimony, child support, and division of assets.  While many of Mr. Older’s cases are straightforward, many involve complex issues regarding financial calculations, hidden assets, business valuations, income reporting, child abuse, psychological evaluations drug and/or alcohol issues.  Mr. Older and his team have built a firm that is uniquely suited to handle all of these issues, big or small, complex or simple.

Additionally, Mr. Older practices in the area of collaborative divorce law, and he is thus able to help many clients resolve their case through the use of this or other methods of alternative dispute resolution. However, when settlement negotiations have broken down, he is a skilled and forceful advocate on their behalf in the courtroom. A holder of a “Superb” peer-review rating through Avvo, Mr. Older is an active participant in numerous legal and community organizations.
