Ben J. Bingham, Esq.
Partner

Why did you become an attorney?
From a young age the thought of becoming an advocate always appealed to me. The mere idea of having a profession, the education, and the ability to appear in court to present an argument lured me in.  Upon turning 16 and obtaining a drivers license, I obtained employment as a runner at a law office. I maintained the same employment until the end of my college days at UNLV. Gaining experience from the attorneys and familiarizing myself with the court house. The influences I received throughout that opportunity sealed the deal. After college it was straight to law school. The practice of law presents challenges on a daily bases far from the mundane 9-5. Frankly, my personality is incapable of a day to day desk job without lashing out. The constant argument with insurance adjusters and defense attorneys over liability issues and medical records, fighting for what's right, suits me well.

What experiences (work and personal) help you be a better attorney?
Having broken numerous bones in my body on several occasions (right arm twice, left arm once, seventh cervical vertebra, torn off bottom lip, right ankle twice, left ankle, bruised and broken ribs to name a few) and having plenty of surgeries to correct the same,  I can relate to most of the pain and suffering issues clients present. When a client is in pain or doesn't have their health, it changes their eating habits, sleeping habits, creates depression and makes them sharp tempered. Having personally experienced the challenges associated with pain and suffering and rehabilitation helps me understand the healing process an injured client endures.

What made you chose your primary specialty focus of law?
In my early career as an attorney I primarily practiced in the areas of criminal defense and personal injury. While criminal defense provided me with great exposure to the court system, making 5-20 appearances a day, personal injury was my desire. Personally, I feel that an attorney must make the decision to focus on one area of law. It is impractical to be a jack-of-all-tades attorney with the intricacies presented in each area of practice. In 2006, I was able to make the transition and dedicate my practice exclusively to helping personal injury victims.

What makes your law firm unique?
Benson & Bingham is a small firm dedicated to our clients. We have made the decision to maintain our intimate size so clients receive the attention they deserve. From the time a personal injury client walks into our office they recognize "the difference". As attorneys we personally meet with each and every client to address their needs. In many cases we have staff member sit in on the initial consultation so our staff is properly informed of potential issues. We do not simply allow clients to meet with case managers.  While we typically sign up between 400 to 600 cases each year, we are not a volume firm. We have taken the oath to seek justice for each client individually. No law firm treats their clients better than Benson & Bingham.

Describe your ideal client.
While it may sound cliche, we truly gain satisfaction in helping the "little guy". In the past twelve years of practicing law we have seen such a shift in insurance companies going from the business of helping people into the business of denying people. The "little guy" doesn't stand a chance alone. Our ideal client is the average individual who simply becomes the victim of negligence and cannot get the wrongdoer or Insurance company to do the right thing. Perhaps it's easier to describe the ideal Defendant in a civil action...someone who refuses to accept Insur ance company to do the right thing. Perhaps it's easier to describe the ideal Defendant in a civil action...someone who refuses to accept responsibility.

I if I could, I’d leave this office and it’s staff 10 Stars. Nothing but greatness in the way they handled my family’s case. They fought until the very last minute to get what we deserved. There are honestly no words to describe how very well taken care of we felt from the minute we signed up with them. Michelle you are simply the beat. Thank you for taking such great care is us.

I have never been in a situation like this, and they walked me through it all... fees, process, expectations. They walked me through every step of the process while keeping my best outcome as a priority. Thank you for all that you have done for me and if I need an attorney in the future...

What an amazing law firm
Can’t thank this office enough for such a wonderful experience. When you get in a car accident everything is bad, your pain, your PTSD, your injuries, and you feel like you have hit rock bottom. The moment we decided to go with Benson and Bingham and were introduced to our case manager Michelle, everything changed. She gave us hope without making outrageous promises. She took care not only of the legal aspects of our case but also the emotional ones. Every time I hung up the phone with her I simply felt better, I felt taken care of. This is a firm that treats you as part of their family and not like another case. I will always recommend you guys because your customer care is what made a huge difference for me. Thank you for all the help.

Best firm in Las Vegas
Let me star by saying first, I never believed in attorneys, always thought they were out to take advantage of people. Benson & Bingham proved me wrong. Not only they are the best at what they do and the results they get but they are also the best when it comes to customer service. Michelle was my case manager. Not only she knows exactly what she’s doing and is the best at handling a personal injury case but she is the most caring person I’ve met. It’s simple, she cares, she’s human, you can’t fake this. Benson & Bingham team is knowledgeable and truly caring. Not sure what the process is here to be a part of this team but I never seen this before. She knew my dad was sick, she would call to see how he was doing, how his surgery went. I was speechless and so grateful because she really knew me and my struggles which was beyond my case. I will never ever go anywhere else, they are the kind of office you want on your case, on your family’s case and anyone you truly care for. She got me the entire policy, that’s the best result you can hope for. She made sure I was recovering well from my injuries. Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart because you made me believe there are people out there that really want to help. You guys are the best!!!
