Benjamin gained valuable trial experience volunteering as a prosecutor for the City of Arlington, where he obtained guilty verdicts in all nine of his jury trials. He cultivated cases from start to finish, conducting the factual investigation and witness interviews, voir dire, opening and closing arguments, direct and cross examinations, and more.
In law school, Benjamin served as the Associate Recent Developments Editor for the Texas Journal of Oil, Gas, and Energy Law. He also devoted his time each week to Youth Court, an organization committed to teaching children about the legal system and reducing the school-to-prison pipeline in low-income communities. Benjamin's hard work earned him inclusion in the Order of the Coif and Texas Law's most prestigious honor society, Chancellors.
Prior to law school, Benjamin furthered his ability to understand and solve client needs while doing reputation consulting and crisis management for Fortune 50 clients at an Austin-based firm.
