About me


Ben’s practice is dedicated to the litigation and trial of personal injury cases, with an emphasis in the areas of product liability, medical malpractice, construction site accidents, and premises liability.   In connection with this practice, he has also litigated through trial and appeal cases aimed at obtaining insurance coverage for injured clients where coverage is disputed.  Ben’s success for clients both in and out of the courtroom is the result of his in-depth understanding of the law and trial practice, his tireless attention to detail in developing the facts of a case, and his commitment to his clients.   Ben is a member of numerous bar organizations and committees, is a regular lecturer at continuing legal education programs and to local law students.
