Benjamin P. Feld is a law partner with the firm Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld. Mr. Feld has been representing injured workers since 2002, providing his expertise in the areas of Workers' Compensation, Social Security Disability and third party litigation services. His work has led not only to successful outcomes for his clients, but also citable appellate precedent. Mr. Feld also manages the firm's Human Resources and IT responsibilities, recently taking his firm "green" by transitioning from an antiquated paper oriented system to the cutting edge of paperless legal administration.

A graduate of the Santa Barbara College of Law, Mr. Feld has remained an active alumni with the campus. Mr. Feld is also a member of the California Applicants' Attorneys Association, the educational and policy group for workers' compensation attorneys representing the disabled. In addition, Mr. Feld has an extensive business background. Before practicing law, Mr. Feld was a local business owner and employer for 10 years dealing hands on with many of the issues facing both employers and employees in the workplace.

Personally, Mr. Feld is kept very busy with his family, which includes his wife Rhonda Henderson and their five children. When not involved in school and extracurricular activities, Mr. Feld enjoys running on our local beaches, paths and races, traveling and enjoying relaxing moments with his extensive family.

SSDI claim
Mr. Feld shined in one of the most difficult, stressful and overwhelming times in my clients life. His knowledge, expertise and competence are second to none. Mr. Feld provided my client with a voice and a fighting chance to be heard, all the while with compassion at a time when everyone else judged my client, and friend. Mr. Feld fought for the truth. We are forever indebted and willingly will continue to refer others.
