Ben began his legal career with Hollins, Raybin & Weissman in 2010 after graduating from Vanderbilt University Law School. While at Vanderbilt, Ben was Articles Editor for the Vanderbilt Law Review, in which he published a Note on federal criminal law: "Objection: Your Honor is Being Unreasonable!" Law and Policy Opposing the Federal Sentencing Order Objection Requirement, 63 Vand. L. Rev. 235 (2010). He also earned the Vanderbilt Scholastic Excellence Award and won the mock trial tournament. While in law school, Ben took courses on international law in Venice, Italy and interned with the U.S. Air Force JAG Corps at Patrick Air Force Base, FL; the Tennessee Attorney General’s office (where he met his fiancée, Sarah); Judge Gilbert S. Merritt, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit; and Judge Thomas A. Wiseman, U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee.
From 2011 to 2012, Ben took a one-year hiatus from the firm to serve as a law clerk for Judges Jane B. Stranch and Gilbert S. Merritt, both of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. As a law clerk, Ben assisted the judges with dozens of cases in several areas of law, such as criminal (state and federal), civil rights, personal injury, employment, contracts, and constitutional. In addition to developing his research and writing skills, clerking for two judges gave Ben firsthand insight on how judges decide cases and how attorneys can best advocate for their clients.
Before law school, Ben attended the University of Chicago, graduating with honors and competing for four years on the mock trial team. While in college, Ben spent a semester at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia and later wrote his honors thesis on the Australian constitution. A Nashville native, Ben attended middle school at Ensworth and high school at University School of Nashville (USN), where he was student body president and captain of the varsity basketball team.
Outside of work, Ben enjoys coaching the USN mock trial team (since 2007), cheering the Tennessee Titans to victory, and attending art shows featuring the work of his very talented sister, Jaime.
