Why did you become an attorney?
The underlying education was the primary reason for the desire to first become an attorney. Obviously, to make a good living and enjoy what you do is the ultimate career. I have found that becoming an attorney was half the battle, becoming a great attorney involves mastering the art of legal persuasion, which is best acquired by experience, and years of training. The reward of client satisfaction truly makes me happy. I had a very strong influence with my Father, Joseph L. Benson, Sr. who also is a personal injury lawyer (and recently received the 2011 Nevada Lifetime Achievement Award). He was instrumental in my decisions throughout my young adulthood and early law practice.What experiences (work and personal) help you to be a better attorney?
Certainly, every case has different legal issues, which mold a better legal mind. Handling thousands of different cases helps me understand the legal issues that emerge in a new case. Trial and litigation experience has helped me formulate what is important in the litigation process so that unnecessary expenses are cut, and that crucial evidence is presented by the legal requirements under Nevada law.What made you choose your primary specialty focus of law?
A drunk driver critically injured my brother in high school, and that experience helped me want to help others.What makes your law firm unique?
We are a boutique law firm with only 13 employees. We give our clients 100% of our efforts and personal attention. Our Internet reviews tell the story: Client service is what we do best.Describe your ideal client.
There is no such thing as an ideal client, but perhaps an ideal set of facts for a particular case. Given the business of personal injury, our clients are victims of other people's carelessness and bad choices. It is very rewarding to help those who need it most. We handle clients from every background and every economic group. Clients who can communicate effectively usually make better clients given they need to express their issues to a jury—this ultimately is the reason we are all here.
