  • Lauren Frances Arisco

    Ben and I have worked together on three complex matters including the Hurricane Ike TWIA litigation and the 2011 Bastrop County Complex Wildfire. When it comes to complex, mass tort litigation, Ben approaches each issue with a thoughtful dedication to his clients. I look forward to working with Ben in the future as I know I can always count on him to be prepared and ready to fight.
