About Benjamin

Learn Benjamin’s areas of practice.

I became a lawyer to defend civil rights and to stand up for the underdog. After fifteen years as a litigator in New York, I only represent clients whose stories speak to my own sense of justice: small businesses that have been cheated by big corporations; dutiful employees done wrong by their employers; homeowners struggling with banks. I fight for my clients relentlessly.

Excellent outcome from an incredible attorney.
Sympathetic, friendly, analytical, and most importantly, effective. Highly effective. These are simply a few words I would use to describe Mr. Delson as my lawyer. I had spent more years than I care to remember, giving everything I had to an employer I imagined staying with for the rest of my career. Then, in an instant, it was all gone. I was destroyed. I needed to hold my employer accountable but had no legal resources to turn to. Then I found Mr. Delson via Avvo. Over the next few months, Mr. Delson reviewed my case in minute detail, collaborated with additional specialist counsel (the case was complex and extended way beyond pure-play employment issues), and devised the winning strategy. Going up against a large company with expensive lawyers is not for the faint-hearted. If you are in a situation like this and are unsure as to whether you should proceed with litigation - talk to Mr. Delson. Now I am on the other side of this case, I couldn't be happier with the result. Did I mention he is also a joy to work with? Absolutely delighted.

Really came through for me.
Never did I expect I'd need a lawyer for my small business. Those types of problems happened to "other people". However, that day came and I really felt like I had no recourse. As a last resort, I talked to Rudy about my options and he knew I had a case. I was nervous, as this whole process was new to me, but he was so knowledgeable about the whole situation, guided me through my options and was able to parse through a complicated situation and break it down succinctly. I felt heard and taken care of, and thus, trusted Rudy's decisions from day one on the best approach—and we ended the process better than I ever expected. Thank you!!

Truly on your side
Rudy has successfully helped me with two different workplace related issues, both of which were complex and had the potential to get ugly. I was extremely anxious through both incidents and having Rudy on my side was the only thing that gave me peace of mind. Hire Rudy without thinking twice if you want a lawyer who: - will take the time to break down merits and weaknesses of the case and properly calibrate expectations at the outset - will devise the right strategies and deploy them at the right time in order to get as close as possible to your optimal outcome - understands the emotional stress of dealing with legal issues and factors that into both his work style as well as client conversations to assess minimum and maximum acceptable outcomes and trade-offs associated with both - will always call you back within 5 minutes of your say “I really need to speak with you” - is extremely knowledgeable in all his areas of expertise - is an excellent writer, able to convey the most salient points in the most impactful manner - takes into consideration the things you feel most strongly about - has compassion for the situations his clients are facing and makes the time to follow up and see how you’re doing even after the issue is resolved.

Amazing work
As a black non binary person being discriminated against in the workplace Rudy was able to get me what I deserve/owed from the company. Rudy is more than an attorney - he is a fighter for the little people who feel they don’t have a voice. I would highly recommend his services to any and everyone.

Attentive, dogged, compassionate; exactly the counsel I needed
I came to Rudy after over a year in a work environment that left me hopeless and numb. What little I had left to fight for myself, Rudy not only compensated for, but exceeded my needs for advocacy. Going into this process I had my concerns, having never needed legal counsel before, but every worry was delicately assuaged. What I feared would be a long, arduous process was made simple. Rudy was prompt and available for any and all needs, and lived up to his words that he would take care of everything for me while I found my footing again. My settlement was negotiated fairly and faster than I anticipated, with care and communication even after my case was closed. A thousand times grateful to have found myself under Rudy's care.

I feel so incredibly lucky that I found Rudy. He helped me negotiate a severance payment/potential lawsuit, and he made the entire process (which could have been extremely stressful) a breeze. He was extremely attentive and supportive, patient with my (many) questions, receptive to my inputs, and generous with his time. He also is very friendly and just generally pleasant to work with. He gave me wonderful advice (but without ever making me feel any pressure), and we ended up getting the best deal from my former employer that I could have hoped for (in fact, even better than I had asked for initially). My experience really could not have been better--I recommend him highly! Thank you so much, Rudy!

An Excellent Lawyer with Heart
I feel so lucky to have Rudy work on my severance negotiation case. He is an excellent lawyer with a heart. I would highly recommend him for below reasons: 1) He is knowledgeable and experienced. It’s impressive that he can explain complex legal issues in a simple way so I can understand. 2) he is truly on your side and has your best interests in mind. While he is extremely nice and patient with clients, he is firm and diplomatic with the other party. I am happy with the results he had achieved with my severance negotiation. 3) he has a good sense of humor and cheerful personalities, which makes the tough negotiation process fun and pleasant.

Excellent service
I had the pleasure of working with Benjamin Rudolph Delson as well as Alex on an employment issue I was having. The professionalism I received I cannot put into words. Mr. Delson kept me in the loop every step of the way and the lines of communication were always open. I am so grateful to have had this firm represent me in resolving my employment issues. I could not have asked for a better lawyer and I highly recommend Mr. Delson!

Helpful and knowledgeable
Rudy took on my case and helped me with a very difficult situation. At every step of the way he listened to me, explained the smallest detail and never wavered. From the start Rudy would break everything down so I could understand & follow. I highly recommend his services to anyone who needs them!

Excellent thoughtful advice and a keen negotiator
I brought an employment termination case to Rudy that had several complications including misclassification and non-payment for time. An added wrinkle was that I wanted to stay in good graces with my former employer as I had the possibility of soliciting work from other departments in the company. Rudy was extremely helpful in all regards. I was terminated on a Thursday, we spoke on Friday and the whole affair was settled in my favor by the following Thursday. Rudy handled all the negotiation with the company HR and legal teams obtaining for me several reciprocal protections in the final agreement along with an excellent settlement. Rudy is very knowledgeable and patient and always had answers to my questions. If I could give him 6 stars I would!

Such a big help!
Rudi helped me settle a case with my former employer over wage law, and even accepted my case with an added complication of Intellectual Property claims. Before I had even signed a contract with him, he informed me of the complications and potential risks involved with trying to settle two different cases at once - one having to do with the IP and the other with compensation. This was my first time ever having to hire an attorney - for anything really! And Rudi was incredibly patient with me as I asked a thousand questions, and always gave me his honest opinions about my claims and how he thought the settlement would go. In the end, he helped me win the exclusive license to my intellectual property, and get a hefty sum of cash from the other party as well. Rudi is friendly, approachable, and always willing to answer questions and put in the time it takes to make sure your case is given the time it deserves. But that does not mean he will be a pushover when rubbing against another attorney - he stood his ground and got me much more than I was honestly expecting to be settling for. He is easy to reach at almost any time of day and will be my go-to for any legal disagreements I have in the future.
