Ben is an experienced criminal defense trial lawyer who was trained at the nation's preeminent Public Defender agency, the federally funded Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia, described by United States Attorney General Eric Holder as "the best public defender office in the country." From 2006 to 2011, Ben was employed as an attorney at the Public Defender Service, including two years in a targeted litigation role focusing on complex forensics and systemic criminal justice issues in partnership with the Innocence Project, prior to transitioning that experience into the role of trial attorney. In his capacity as trial attorney at the Public Defender Service, he represented indigent individuals charged with felonies in the District of Columbia, from their initial appearance in Superior Court through trial.

Ben has a proven track record in front of juries and judges, and is committed to advocacy on behalf of the accused in the face of the substantial power of a government that frequently oversteps its bounds. He has devoted his entire legal career to defending the rights of the accused, and has never worked for the other side.
