About Me

I focus my practice on trial advocacy representing individuals harmed by the negligence of others, and families that have lost a loved one due to the negligence of others. I am Board Certified as a Specialist in Civil Trial by The Florida Bar and have tried numerous cases throughout central and southwest Florida. Just over 1% of the more than 100,000 lawyers in Florida are Board Certified in Civil Trial. I also received an AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell, which is based on peer review by judges and other attorneys. This is the highest rating an attorney can receive and only approximately 5% of the lawyers in the United States are AV Rated.


I am a native Floridian. I grew up in Lakeland, FL and attended the University of South Florida in Tampa graduating in 2000 with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration. I then attended Regent University School of Law in Virginia Beach and received my Juris Doctor in 2006. I then returned to Florida to practice law. Since becoming a member of the Florida Bar, I have concentrated my practice on personal injury, wrongful death, and insurance disputes.

    Ben is the consummate litigator. He is supremely comfortable in the court room. Unlike billboard/t.v. lawyers, Ben goes to court and knows how to try a case. He is well-prepared, informed and experienced in law, issues and facts of any case he takes to court. He get the best results for his clients. He is trusted by judges, opposing counsel, his fellow trial lawyers and court personnel. That is where trial success happens. If you have to go through a lawsuit because of a tough case, you couldn't ask for better trial lawyer on your side than Ben.
