In over 30 years of practice, Ben has represented a broad array of clients across several industries. Ben has significant railroad experience, working on behalf of multiple Class 1 railroads where his litigation practice has ranged from the defense of employee personal injuries to the defense of CERCLA actions, real property title disputes, and commercial claims. In addition to litigation, he has provided counseling on a wide range of matters including contract and real estate issues. He has served as Division Counsel for Louisiana to Norfolk Southern and its affiliates for over twenty years. 

Ben has also defended numerous mass tort cases and enjoyed considerable success in defeating class certification in numerous jurisdictions. In the area of environmental law, Ben successfully tried to verdict (both bench and jury trials) a number of claims under pre-1990 CGL policies for reimbursement of clean-up costs against both foreign and domestic insurers and recently concluded a substantial CERCLA cost recovery action brought by the State of Alabama in the Southern District of Alabama. Ben has litigated many commercial cases on behalf of individual and corporate clients.
