As a lawyer, I’m proud to fight for everyday Americans,” he says. Not only has Ben fought to help others through his representation of mesothelioma and serious personal injury victims, but also through his pro bono work. In one case, Ben represented a victim of the 9/11 attacks seeking compensation from the September 11th Victims Compensation Fund through the non-profit legal services organization, Trial Lawyers Care.
