Ben is a graduate of the University of California, San Diego and Loyola Law School. After law school, he worked at an international law firm on large class-action defense cases.  Ben has practiced family law exclusively for the last 10 years.

As a San Diego divorce lawyer, Ben specializes in all aspects of complex family law litigation. Ben has litigated all issues involved in divorce and paternity cases. Ben focuses his practice on high asset and complex marital estates.  Ben’s clientele includes both C-suite executives and self-employed individuals owning multi-million-dollar corporations (both domestic and foreign) to the spouses of such individuals.

Ben is known for his principled, strategic approach toward his cases that are often highly contentious. Most recently, after a 4-day trial, he obtained a 2-year domestic violence restraining order for a client that was being harassed by his ex-wife over her social media. He has also successfully defended clients from restraining orders.

In another notable case, he successfully negotiated a divorce settlement on behalf of his client who is a partner at a major financial firm helping that client resolve a long-term marriage without paying yearly spousal support.

Ben has also handled complex international custody and move-away cases.

When he is not fiercely advocating for his clients, he spends time with his family enjoying the outdoors in our fantastic San Diego weather.
