About Benjamin

Learn Benjamin’s areas of practice.

The year before I began law school, I scored in the top 1% worldwide on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). This score earned me the Faculty Merit Scholarship to the Paul M.Hebert School of Law at Louisiana State University. In 2004 I was fortunate to be able to study International Comparative Law at Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3 in Lyon, France.

Since law school, my career has reflected my approach to life. I believe a person must be well rounded in order to be successful. Having a diversity of interests and experiences allows me to adapt more easily to new environments and navigate around unexpected obstacles. 

Beginning my career in criminal law provided me with a strong litigation background. In addition, I have substantial experience in many aspects of the legal practice including:​​

  • State & Federal Courts

  • Wills, Trusts, and Successions

  • Medical Malpractice

  • Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)

  • Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act 

  • Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

  • Data Security & Privacy Rights

  • Corporate Formation & Structuring

  • Employment Contracts

  • Services and Goods Vendor Contracts

Exceptional Attorney
Divorces are tough and without an exceptional attorney in your corner, they can be truly gut wrenching. Mr. Sanders handled every aspect of the proceedings and guided me through the maze. He actually listened and I never felt rushed or forgotten. His confidence and knowledge of the law, the system and the players got me exactly what I wanted, and I managed to keep my dignity and sanity. I truly cannot recommend him enough.
