  • Jessica M. Gulash

    I worked with Ben on a matter in which I represented the plaintiff and Ben represented a potentially adverse party / third-party witness. Ben vigorously represented his client while always remaining a consummate professional. It would be a pleasure to work with him again in the future.

    I found Ben to be tenacious and assertive, as he should be, on behalf of his client. At the same time, I found him professional and respectful. I respect Ben for this combination.
