Benjamin has always stood up for what’s right – he finds real meaning in helping the good guys win! He’s always been guided by a clear sense of right and wrong, from his time in the U.S. Army to his time as a Commonwealth Attorney (prosecutor), to his current position at J. Madison PLC.
Before starting at J. Madison PLC, Benjamin worked at the Arlington Commonwealth Attorney’s Office for five years. As a Commonwealth Attorney, he helped the victims of violent, non-violent, and financial crimes find justice. He also tried hundreds of traffic cases and specialized in DUI cases. Prior to that, Benjamin worked for the Corporate Litigation Counsel for State Farm Insurance. Benjamin also worked at the Law Office of Mark S. Moeller in 2008 on civil litigation matters prior to attending law school.
In 2012, Benjamin graduated from the George Mason University School of Law, now known as the Antonin Scalia Law School in the top half of his class. While at law school, he took numerous classes on litigation and trial practice. He also participated in the Alternative Dispute Resolution Society and was part of the Federalist Society. Benjamin earned his undergraduate degree in Political Science from the University of New Hampshire, Durham, in 2007.
Not strictly a “desk guy,” Benjamin served for seven years as an enlisted member of the New Hampshire Army National Guard, from 2002 to 2009. He was deployed domestically several times for weather-related disaster relief, and he was deployed for 12 months to Afghanistan, as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. During this time, he rapidly moved up the ranks from Private E-1 to Staff Sergeant E-6, was promoted to Squad Leader, and earned several medals, including the Global War on Terror Expeditionary Medal, the Army Achievement Medal, and the Army Commendation Medal.
