Attorney Jeffrey Benjamin is enjoying his third decade of practicing law. In 1997, he started practicing law in the field of consumer protection and class actions. Out of the starting gate, he was trying cases, arguing substantial motions and appeals, and building a practice under the motto: “Doing Well, by Doing Good.”
Today, he continues to develop skill and expertise in trial and appellate advocacy. Adversary counsel against him come from some of the largest and most resourceful firms in New York City down to competent and capable sole practitioners. From the beginning of his practice, Mr. Benjamin has felt that a no fear mentality is essential in a career in litigation practice in New York City and beyond. Clients want a lawyer who will know their case, and aggressively fight for their interest whether prosecuting as a plaintiff, or defending a defendant.
And communication with clients in mandatory, whether there is good news, bad news or no news. Any client of Mr. Benjamin can expect an honest and no-nonsense appraisal of the case before, during and after the litigation. They are these traits that keep clients coming back to the firm with multiple matters, and with referrals from other clients.
Mr. Benjamin’s experience spans a wide range of cases, varying in nature and complexity. Over the years, he has been selective in choosing cases in his areas of specialty in consumer and commercial litigation. Cases of personal injury, real estate transactional or criminal he refers to his partner lawyers. Mr. Benjamin considers the greatest compliment when he has received a client referral from an adversary counsel, or a Judge. At times, there have even been adversary parties that have asked him later to represent them once the litigation against that party was complete. He feels the best referral is from someone who has actually seen him work.
