About Paul

Learn Paul’s areas of practice.

EXPERIENCED TRIAL LAWYER FOCUSED ON SERIOUS INJURY, WRONGFUL DEATH AND INSURANCE LAW.

I was born and raised in Janesville, Wisconsin and I’m proud to serve the good people in our community. I’ve dedicated most of the last decade to standing up and fighting for people who have been injured because of someone else’s negligence.

I help injured people stand up to insurance companies and big corporations. I fight to make sure regular people are treated fairly. People come to the Paul Benson Law Firm because they are frustrated with dealing with an insurance company or are bombarded with unexpected medical bills and need someone to help them fight and win. They need an experienced advocate. I have handled hundreds of personal injury cases ranging from car accidents and premises liability cases to civil rights claims.

I take the time to listen to my clients’ problems and build a strategy to win their case. I will go over all of your damages, medical bills and lost time from work and then focus on holding the responsible party accountable for 100% of your damages. I have jury trial experience in State Court, US District Court and have argued before the Court of Appeals. Every step of the way, I will personally update you on your case and explain what is happening so you don’t feel lost. I believe communication is crucial to a successful attorney-client relationship. My goal is to take away all of the stress of your injury and get you the very most money that is available.

I love being a trial lawyer because I believe our justice system is what makes America great. Everybody is equal under the law. No matter your race, religion, gender, creed or social standing, you are entitled to equal protection under the law and a fair jury trial in front of your peers. I get out of bed every day because I desperately want to make our small corner of Wisconsin a little more just and a little more fair.

I graduated from the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University (a US News Top 25 Law School) in 2011 and was voted a “Rising Star” in the legal community by Thomson Reuters in 2016 and 2017.

In my free time, I love spending time with my family, cheering for our Wisconsin sports teams, bicycling, and playing in local volleyball and basketball leagues.

I look forward to working with the people of south central Wisconsin.

Paul Benson was beyond amazing!!!
Paul Benson was my attorney for an accident that happened to me. Unfortunately, I didn't win my case, but it was not because of the lack of hard work Paul put into my case!!! He never gave up, even to the last step, and even though I didn't win, I would choose Paul again because of his caring and hard working ethics he displayed throughout the whole case. I would HIGHLY recommend Paul Benson!!!

Very satisfied w/ Paul
I was involved in a five-car crash and Paul helped w/ the case. Paul was very detailed oriented and responsive throughout the entire process - he set the right expectation from the beginning (in terms of time frame and compensation) - hence, I didn't have any surprises. I'd highly recommend Paul to my friends and family.

Amazing!!!!!!!!!!
This was my first accident and I wasn't to sure what to do. I was recommend to take a chance on Trogeson Law and it was the best thing I could have done. They did everything they could to get me a great settlement and were beyond successful!!!!!! Paul Benson took the lead on my case! :)

Paul Benson
Paul is an excellent personal injury lawyer. He did an excellent job on my personal injury case. He paid attention to all details and kept me informed at all times as to what was happening with my case. He also explained all the details to me, which was very helpful.

Appreciate all the help.
Paul Benson, did an excellent job with my case, when I realized the insurance company was trying to pull a fast one on me, a friend recommended Paul Benson and he was able to get the insurance company to pay what they should have in the beginning and more. Then when the hospital tried to come after me for more money after the case was settled, he was immediately on top of it and I did not have to pay them any more money. Paul Benson did an excellent job, I would highly recommend him.
