After graduating, Benjamin attended the University of Wyoming College of Law.  During Law School, Benjamin worked in a family law firm in Laramie, was the Dean of his Law Fraternity, Delta Theta Phi, and the President of the Natural Resource Law Club.  After graduating law school, Benjamin moved to Cheyenne to start work as a family law Attorney with Cameron Law, LLC.  Benjamin worked for Cameron Law, LLC., for 3 years before leaving to take a job as an Assistant District Attorney for the State of Wyoming, First Judicial District.  Benjamin prosecuted major crimes for 4 years and lead over 25 jury trials during his time as an ADA.  Benjamin resigned from the District Attorney’s Office in 2018 and started a job with Olsen Legal Group, LLC.

When Benjamin isn’t working he is either spending time with his family, working in politics or playing sports.  Benjamin has an amazing wife who is also a local elder law attorney and two wonderful little boys, Weston (named after Weston County, Wyoming) and Hudson (named after the town Hudson, Wyoming).  Benjamin is currently the Vice Chairman of the Laramie County Republican Party and he is also an avid hunter and fisherman.

Super Great!
We went to Ben for an eviction filing of a tenant for non-payment of rent. He was able to review the situation and represent our business at court successfully. My anxieties and worries were put at ease by his professionalism, knowledge, and relaxed demeanor. We have, and will continue, to recommend Ben to our friends and colleagues!

Terrible representation
This firm has been a nightmare for me. I hired them because they claim to specialize in fathers rights and parental alienation but they have done nothing for me. I’ve used Ben Sherman and he doesn’t return email and calls, and he fails to file responses to my ex-wife’s filings allowing her to get multiple default judgements against me. He promised multiple times to file court papers but then never does it. This has went on for months. I complained to the office manager and sent an email to Jared Olson (The firms founding partner) but never received a response. I was told I would have a call with my attorney and Mr. Olson but Olson never joined the call. I’ve talked to the bar and have a legitimate complaint, which I have been trying to hold off filing until now. They’ve billed me $20k for what should have cost no more than $10k and they refuse to send me a detailed bill. Furthermore, after talking to others attorneys that told me I had a valid legal malpractice suit, I stood up for myself by telling the firm I wouldn’t put up with this anymore. In response, Ben withdrew as my attorney and in his filing, he bashed me to the court making statements against me to make me look bad. I am happy to share a copy of his filing. If you are seeking a family law attorney, this firm will ruin your case regarding your children.
