About me

I grew up in a farming community in Utah,  and enjoyed spending a lot of time in the outdoors fishing, shooting, hunting, camping, four-wheeling, hiking etc.  

I love anything related to the outdoors.  In more recent years I have become very interested in shooting sports and in particular ultra long-range shooting (shooting up to 2000 yards).  

I am happily married and have two wonderful daughters.

Finally, I am a dedicated Red Sox, Cowboys, Jazz and BYU Cougar fan.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Leila Louise Hale

    I'd like to endorse this attorney for all fields related to personal injury, but because I had to select just one, I decided on wrongful death. Why? Mr. Cloward has had two phenomenal trial victories in a span of only a few months in wrongful death cases. This year Mr. Cloward was named Trial Lawyer of the Year in Nevada. I could not be more proud of his work ethic, his dogged-determination, and his uncanny ability to look at a case from a unique perspective that allows him to see alternative avenues. I have not met a fellow attorney I feel more confidence in, and happily and wholeheartedly endorse this lawyer.

  • Karlie M. Gabour

    Ben Cloward is an exceptional attorney - dedicated and skilled in his representation of injured victims. I have personally observed Ben grow as a trial lawyer with hard work and determination - starting from short trials and working his way up to multi-million dollar verdicts. Ben is an honest advocate and a well respected member of the community. I endorse Ben!
