What’s it like to work with Ben

Ben is the firm’s go-to-guy” for complex discussion of litigation strategy (determining which arguments to make and which to abandon.) His well-researched, Devil’s advocate approach will make you think. But his story-telling and sense of humor will balance it with a smile
