Benjamin has a wealth of experience in estate litigation and commercial litigation, representing clients in hearings and appeals before the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench, and in the Alberta Court of Appeal.

With family in Alberta and Saskatchewan, Benjamin gained an understanding of business needs and practical circumstances affecting prairie businesses, originally by helping to operate the family farm. As an active member of the Calgary community, he is proud of his service to the Rotary Club of Calgary West as its President (2017-18), and has volunteered for numerous local debate teams as a judge and coach. He assists as an executive on numerous Canadian Bar Association (CBA) planning and organising committees, and has served as an elected council member of the Alberta CBA. He also serves in a leadership capacity with several other local charitable organisations.

He is an avid writer, and a volunteer presenter for the Legal Education Society of Alberta (LESA) on Commercial Litigation and Estate Litigation topics, and has presented at the request of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and other recognised business and industry groups.

Benjamin’s interests outside of law include Latin American history, culture and development, world travel and cultural exchange, photography, writing, fitness, music and theatre, and enjoying our Rocky Mountains.
