Attorney Ben Crump is one of the preeminent civil rights attorneys in the United States. He has received many awards and honors to include the Freedom Award in 2016 from the National Civil Rights Museum. It is not a stretch to say that, if there is a case that has national civil rights implications in our country, Ben is probably involved in representing the victims and their families. Based primarily in Florida, Ben has offices throughout the United States. His law firm also handles personal injury cases, medical malpractice actions and mass torts. The number of well-known cases that Ben handles is pretty astonishing. On this podcast, we talk about Ben’s humble beginnings and his path into the law and how he developed his nationally known and well respected law firm. As one can imagine, Ben is not able to spend much time at home with his vast case load in many states. The timing of the podcast was, unfortunately, good since COVID-19 forced Ben to be off the road for a period of time. The silver lining of this time period, of course, was that he was able to spend a decent amount of quality family time during this crisis. I had not spoken to Ben previously and I enjoyed getting to know him on this podcast.
