About Benjamin

Learn Benjamin’s areas of practice.

If you've been hurt because someone else broke the rules, then you deserve someone who will get you the best result and who will be with you every step of the way. I believe in getting the best for each of my clients and in listening to what they have to say. Some people hire an attorney to represent them for their injuries, and they never get to talk to their attorney. That's not right. I make it a point to be available to my clients to help them with their case and help them get the best result they can. 

Some attorneys will just settle a case for whatever low amount of money that the insurance company offers. That's not right either. To get the most for your case, it takes an attorney who is willing to put in the extra work and who is willing to be with you until the end. Whether it is settling your case out of court or holding wrongdoers accountable in trial, I'll make sure that I put my clients first.

Highly Recommended
I had the pleasure of working with Ben Scott as opposing counsel on a personal injury matter involving a construction site injury. Ben is a passionate Plaintiff’s attorney who truly cares about doing right by his clients. As opposing counsel, he was friendly and easy to work with but also a zealous advocate for his client. He was professional and did not waste time on trivial issues or engage in ad hominem attacks. Not only is Ben a smart and knowledgeable attorney but he is also straight shooter. He has a very calm demeanor and articulates legal issues in a simple and concise manner, both orally and in writing. I truly enjoyed working with him and highly recommend him. If I ever need a PI attorney on my side, Ben will be the guy I call.

I reached out to Ben for advice on setting up my own law firm as he and I attended the same law school and he blogs on the topic. Ben is very professional and has been extremely helpful and generous with his time. He is very knowledgeable about his practice area, I would definitely refer my estate planning clients to him.

Living Trust
Ben walked us through the process of completing our Living Trust. He was professional, courteous, honest, and thorough. He took the time to answer our questions , and also explained and discussed in detail each concern we had. After 3 meetings we had easily set up our Trust, reviewed all papers, and received our completed Living Trust in binder form. Our experience was excellent.

Excellent Estate Lawyer
Ben was fantastic to work with in creating our Living Trust and Will. He was very thorough and meet with my husband and I three times to ensure that we were given time to think carefully about the decisions we were making. His pricing was excellent and was very responsive to our needs. He obtained a copy of our deed of trust from the county saving us the time and effort. We now have the satisfaction of knowing that our family will be taken care of.

Great experience!
"Ben Scott was fantastic to work with. My husband and I have used him for all of our legal needs over the past year. He helped us through the process of finally putting together our will and trust...something we had put off for way too long because it seemed such a daunting task--we've been married for over 20 years and have 3 children! Ben made it easy for us. He met with us several times to explain each part of the process and gave us time between meetings to think about the things that were most important to us so we could incorporate those. He took care of all the language in the documents where needed and allowed us to write our own wishes in our own words about some of the things most important to us, such as the instructions for the care of our children. He made several suggestions about options we had available and discussed the pros and cons of each scenario. He really took care to make our will and trust right for our family. We have consulted with Ben on other legal matters, as well, and have always felt his advice showed great concern for our needs. We would highly recommend him as your personal attorney."

Living Trust
Ben handled my living trust, as well as a living trust for my father-in-law. Everything regarding our interaction with Ben was exemplary. He was extremely patient, knowledgable, and thorough. He was incredibly generous with his time, and made sure that every detail, no matter how small, was thoroughly explained. Most importantly, I find Ben to be exceptionally trustworthy, and to be of the highest moral caliber--issues which, for me and my family, are of the utmost importance when choosing someone to guide one through such sensitive and intensely personal decisions. Ben has my sincere recommendation.

Estate Planning/Living Trust
We found Benjamin W. Scott to be very professional in preparing a Restated Amendment to our Living Trust . Although we both have children with our previous spouses, we chose to have Benjamin to represent us both in our estate planning. He was always available to answer our questions night & day and guided us with great statements: "Think of the worse thing that can happen to you". It gave us "food for thought" and helped us make decisions on our Trust.
