About Benjamin

Learn Benjamin’s areas of practice.

Attorney Benjamin Gideon is trusted by his clients to handle some of the most complex, high-profile legal battles in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and elsewhere in New England and the nation.

Many of Ben’s cases involve people who were seriously injured or killed because of negligence within large corporations. He is motivated to hold negligent corporations accountable, and to prevent similar tragedies from happening in the future.

Whether it’s a case against the U.S. Government, a ski resort that fails to properly maintain its equipment, a multinational communications company that does not protect utility workers, the owners of the cargo ship El Faro, or a negligent healthcare organization, Ben is not afraid to take on and defeat the most powerful defendants. He has achieved remarkable results for his clients, including a $22.5 million jury verdict that was one of the top 100 verdicts nationwide.

Ben has developed expertise across a broad range of case types, including personal injury, medical malpractice, civil rights, products liability, nursing home, and other complex civil litigation matters. Ben is a fierce competitor who thrives under pressure and enjoys the role of standing up for everyday people who have been wronged.

“We go to extraordinary lengths to make sure our clients have the best chance to win,” Ben says. “When it comes to preparation, we are going to do more, and we are going to do it better, than anyone else involved in the case.”

Ben is a Maine native. Following college, he served as Political Director to Congressman Tom Allen during his successful primary campaign for U.S. Congress. 

Ben is a frequent speaker on court room and trial strategy at conferences in Maine and across the country, and has published numerous articles on these subjects.

An outstanding advocate for clients
As former clients, I can attest that Ben and all the staff at his firm bring formidable skill and a relentless effort on behalf of their clients, against great odds. Without attorneys like Ben, plaintiffs might have little recourse. Congratulations to Ben and all of the attorneys at Berman & Simmons on reaching The National Law Journal's "Top 100 Verdicts of 2014", a repeat achievement. This is an elite peer group now joined by this uniquely capable advocate. Success is never guaranteed and results for clients are rarely this remarkable.
