Ben's practice covers a wide area of civil litigation, including motor vehicle, product liability, premises liability, natural gas drilling matters, dram shop/liquor liability, UIM defense, contract, bad faith and legal malpractice. During the course of his career, Ben has handled several hundred automobile actions and tried cases in several federal and state court jurisdictions in northeastern Pennsylvania, including the Court of the Appeals for the Third Circuit.

With a keen understanding of the expanding set of legal issues arising out of developments in Marcellus Shale litigation, Ben has handled complicated, high-exposure trucking matters along with product liability, pipeline construction accidents and other personal injury matters. That representation includes crashes between trucks and other work vehicles leaving or entering a work site and accidents involving pumper trucks at the well site. He also represents clients who have been involved in transporting hydrofracking fluid, water or natural gas onto or away from work sites and moving hydrofracking equipment to a new area of the work site or to another work site. Additionally, Ben counsels insurers on potential product liability claims alleging defective drilling equipment.

Ben has resolved several underinsured motorist claims for substantially less than the expected payout. He successfully tried a product liability claim where the demand was $650,000 by prevailing on plaintiff's negligence claim. He successfully tried a motor vehicle case involving a claim for punitive damages for driving while intoxicated where the jury awarded no punitive damages. He obtained a defense verdict in a fear-of-AIDS case stemming from an infected epi-pen/needle. He has consistently resolved bad faith cases for less than the expected payout. Ben's clients include several national retail chains in premises liability, automobile liability and product liability matters.

Ben received a Master of Arts degree in history and a Bachelor of Science degree in political science from the University of Scranton in 1990. He received his juris doctor in 1993 from Catholic University's Columbus School of Law in Washington, D.C.

Ben is a member of the Lackawanna County Bar Association and the Pennsylvania Bar Association.
