I graudated from Washburn Law School, earning a special Certificate in Advocacy and being inclucted into the Order of Barristers--a national advocacy honorary.

  • Through the documents and tools I will create for you, and the things I will guide you to do, I will tell your story in the plan we create.

Endorse Benjamin
Litigation Attorney | Aug 28
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I've worked with Ben as an attorney and as a Trial Instructor at the law school. I've seen first hand his ability to analyze a situation, then apply the appropriate litigation strategy both "on the fly" and from his office."
Litigation Attorney | May 11
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have known Ben for years. In the past, when I needed to hire another attorney in his area, he was the first person I called."
Probate Attorney | May 25
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I wholeheartedly endorse Ben to anyone looking for help with a probate matter. He is a skilled writer, knowledgeable about the law, and one of the most gracious, friendly people I know. That said, if a matter must be resolved in court, Ben is a force to be reckoned with and should not be underestimated. Ben and I have worked on some cases together, so I have experienced first-hand that it is far better to be working with Ben than against him."
