About Benjamin

Learn Benjamin’s areas of practice.

Ben is chair of the firm’s Elder Law, Estate Planning, Probate, and Trust Group. He assists clients with simple and complex estate planning, focusing on the needs of the elderly, retirees and near-retirees, high net worth clients, clients with special needs, same-sex couples, and young families. Licensed in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and New York, Ben can advise clients whose personal affairs spread across multiple states.

Guiding families through the challenges inherent in managing the care and finances of a loved one experiencing cognitive decline is a significant part of Ben’s practice, including, where necessary, the guardianship process. Ben is well versed in the complex rules governing public benefits and assists clients with qualifying for those benefits, including all aspects of the Medicaid application and spend-down processes and Social Security claiming strategies. Ben also represents clients in probate disputes following the death of a loved one. Ben is sensitive to the emotionally-charged aspects of such matters, creative in reaching a negotiated or litigated resolution, tenacious when necessary, and efficient in avoiding unnecessary litigation costs.
