Benjamin Rabin was admitted to practice law in NY in 1994. At that time, he was working as a public defender in Syracuse. After over 2 years there, he worked for a small practice in Syracuse where he helped start the personal injury department. From there, Ben was hired as counsel for Cigna Insurance Company, and he handled cases all across New York, defending Cigna Insureds who were sued.
In 1999, Ben began representing injured people, working for a personal injury firm in Syracuse. He did that exclusively for over a decade, along the way handling major cases, and great numbers of them. Ben has handled wrongful death cases, paralysis cases, loss of limb cases and many more. He has trial experience in many of the counties across upstate New York, as well as in the Court of Claims where he has pursued NY State itself.
Ben is a member of the Onondaga County Bar Association, the New York State Bar Association, the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, and the American Association of Justice. He has lectured to other lawyers on many personal injury and trial topics.
Currently, Ben has handled hundreds of personal injury cases and recovered millions of dollars for injury victims.
On Monday May 2, 2011 Ben was sworn in to the board of directors of the New York State Academy of Trial Lawyers. This organization is dedicated to preserving the rights of injured people and fights vigorously against the efforts of lobbyists, insurance companies and other businesses that attempt to take away injured victims' rights. Ben is actively involved in the group, and has helped draft legislation that would protect injured parties, and specifically motorcyclists.
