Ben began working at McRae, Smith, Peek, Harman & Monroe, LLP in 2017 and was named a partner in the firm in 2023. This followed two summers clerking at the firm during law school. Ben is a 2008 graduate of South Paulding High School in Douglasville, GA. He attended Shorter University where he was a pitcher for Shorter’s baseball team from 2009-2013. After graduating with a BBA in Sport Management and going on to earn an MBA from Shorter, Ben attended The University of Georgia School of Law where he graduated Cum Laude. During law school, Ben was heavily involved with UGA’s Advocacy program, competing on both the Moot Court and Mock Trial teams. In his third year, Ben’s advocacy experience earned him a selection into the Joseph Henry Lumpkin American Inn of Court. He was also sworn in under the Third Year Practice Act during his final year at UGA and worked in the Newton County District Attorney’s Office where he helped prosecute both felonies and misdemeanors. Prior to graduation, Ben was presented with the Georgia Defense Lawyers Association Willis J. “Dick” Richardson, Jr. Student Award for Outstanding Trial Advocacy.

Ben’s practice is litigation focused, having advised and represented clients in a wide variety of civil matters. He has developed an expansive domestic relations practice after representing clients throughout Northwest Georgia in contested divorce actions and custody disputes. Ben also serves as co-litigation counsel for Floyd Medical Center, defending the hospital and its care providers in complex medical malpractice and general liability matters at both the federal and state court level. Additionally, Ben represents clients who have suffered severe and catastrophic injuries as a result of the negligence of third parties, routinely helping clients achieve substantial settlements through pre-suit negotiation and contested litigation.

In 2019, Ben passed the bar exam in Alabama and now holds a dual license in Georgia and Alabama. Ben also serves as a board member for the Open Door Home in Rome, a long-standing nonprofit providing care and resources to youth in need. Ben lives in Rome with his wife, Abby, a Rome native.
