Benjamin T. Shell

Personal Injury Attorney

Ben knows the other side of personal injury and wrongful death claims. He began his career as a defense attorney, representing Fortune 500 insurance companies and their insured. He worked for an insurance defense firm, which provided him with a unique perspective into how insurance companies view and evaluate certain claims, thus allowing him to expertly navigate the litigation process in the manner most advantageous to his clients.

Ben recently joined Emmanuel Sheppard & Condon to represent the people, not the powerful corporations. Most importantly, Ben believes that everyone is entitled to competent legal representation in cases. Whether your case is worth millions or just a few hundred dollars, he will relentlessly fight for you and your rights.
