Ben graduated cum laude from the University of Georgia, where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. He earned his Juris Doctor from George Washington University Law School.  While in law school, it was at the Consumer Affairs Clinic where he first began to assist individuals against big corporations.  Ben also had legal internships at the Department of Justice and the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.  Ben moved to Georgia in 2001 and began his career working for insurance defense firms.  Ben learned what the strategies and motivations of insurance companies were while trying cases on their behalf.  In 2004, Ben was recruited to a firm that represented plaintiffs in personal injury and workers’ compensation cases.
