He gained significant trial experience while in Alabama and was named a partner at that firm in February of 2009. Since his return to Minnesota, Ben’s practice has been focused on general civil litigation, insurance defense, agricultural litigation and probate litigation. In his free time, Ben enjoys physical fitness and spending time with his wife and sons.
