About Ben

Learn Ben’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Personal injury
    We represent people whose lives have been affected by automobile collisions, wrongful death, sexual molestation, professional malpractice, motorcycle collisions, bicycle and pedestrian injuries, along with other types of injury claims.

    36 years

  2. Brain injury
    Medical science has proven that is not necessary to strike your head to suffer from a head injury in a traumatic event. Sometimes people suffer head injuries in automobile collisions even though they did not strike their head. This is similar to shaken baby syndrome where the brain is injured due to jolting movements which cause the brain to impact the inside of the skull. We are skilled in handling the intricacies of brain injury cases.

  3. Insurance
    Often we encounter insurance company misconduct while representing our clients in personal injury matters. We also occasionally represent clients who have been mistreated by their insurance carrier in non-personal injury settings.

    36 years

I represent people who have experienced physical, psychological and financial injuries due to the carelessness or criminal acts of others.  I estimate that I have represented nearly one thousand people in these types of matters.  I am proud that my clients place their health, livelihood and families in my care.  It is an awesome responsibility and I appreciate their confidence.  I have limited my practice to this area since 1989.  We practice in the small town of Arlington.  However, we deliver exceptional legal service and always ensure that our clients are exceptionally well represented.  We only accept legitimate injury claims and always thoroughly review our cases to ensure the truthfulness of the claim.

Highly recommended
I have used two attorneys and found Ben Wells to be far superior. He had a more aggressive approach (not too aggressive), was very informative every step of the way, and listened to my opinion and took them into account when dealing with the other party. I highly recommend Ben for injury cases.

Excellent Attorney!
My family used the services of Ben Wells after an auto accident and we were extremely pleased with the personal care and concern and attention that was given. I can't say that I would ever want to experience litigation again, but should that need ever arise, I would not hire anyone but Ben to take care of the situation.

"When I myself want to bounce an idea on a case off of a local colleague, I call Ben Wells. I have shared/received briefing with Mr. Wells, seen him conduct arbitrations on several occasions and have observed first-hand the top quality of legal work that Mr. Wells provides to his clients. Ben is a top-notch attorney who always puts the interests of his clients first in all that he does, and he is also very involved in teaching and helping others in the personal injury field via his involvement with the Washinton State Association for Justice. If you have been injured in a accident or other incident due to the negligence of another, and are looking for good, competent legal representation, Ben Wells will certainly provide that!
