Ben has developed a diverse repertoire of practice areas, assisting clients with matters relating to family law, personal injury, business and corporate matters, civil litigation, collections, foreclosure prosecution and defense, criminal law and creditor rights within and outside of the United States Bankruptcy Courts. Ben utilizes his combined law and MBA degreed to provide efficient and effective counsel to various business clients, addressing both legal and business concerns, as well as to provide family law clients with a unique perspective when the ubiquitous fiscal issues arise. Combining the thought processes and skills acquired though both law and business graduate programs, Ben seeks to address his clients’ issues prospectively by mitigating risk, and also responding to unavoidable situations where formal litigation becomes necessary in a cost-efficient manner with cost-benefit often being an important driving factor in the decision making process.
