Ben is your work horse

Who will get your case from the starting point to the finish line

Ben started working with Joe in February 2013.  He handles personal injury and medical malpractice cases throughout the state of North Carolina. Ben graduated from the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law at Campbell University.  He was born in Redding, Connecticut and completed undergraduate studies at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts.  At Brandeis (named for the famous Supreme Court Justice), Ben majored in politics and completed a Legal Studies program that included an internship with the Cambridge Consumer’s Counsel in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

After completing his studies at Brandeis, Ben moved to Lake Tahoe in California. He spent the next five years working for a land planning consultant, a land surveyor, and managing a high-end retail mountain bike shop. This was a great lifestyle, but did not satisfy Ben’s desire for a career working to help folks achieve justice. So, in 2009, Ben and his wife decided that they wanted to put down roots and start a family. That is when they moved to Raleigh where he went to law school.

Ben is an avid cyclist and skier.  He and his wife live in Raleigh with their two sons and one daughter.  They attend Christ the King Presbyterian Church where Ben is an Elder.
