About Me

Benjamin is a litigation associate working to represent the injured in Vermont and New Hampshire. He grew up on Long Island but moved to Vermont in 2017 to attend Vermont Law School. Most recently, Ben has served as a hearing examiner for the Vermont Department of Labor in the Unemployment Insurance and Wages Division Appeals Unit. However, his legal experience includes a legal internship with the Center for International Environmental Law, as well as clinician positions with the Environmental Advocacy Clinic and South Royalton Legal Clinic’s Immigration Assistance Program at Vermont Law School.

Ben was heavily involved in student life and served as a Student Ambassador, Co-President of the Vermont Law Outdoors Club, Co-Captain of the Ultimate Frisbee team, and still plays on the Vermont Law School hockey team. He is an Albert Sweitzer Fellow for Life for his work with aquaponic systems and environmental education.

Prior to law school, Ben worked as a primate conservationist and wildlife researcher with Colobus Conservation in Diani, Kenya. He researched human-wildlife conflict and mitigation strategies. Accordingly, his first client-facing role was representing troops of yellow baboons against the farmers and hotel owners they were antagonizing. Following that, nearly any human client is welcome.

Outside of work, Ben enjoys tabletop games, skiing, paddling Vermont’s waterways, beach volleyball, and mountain league softball.
