For this 100th episode of the Next Lawyer Up podcast, I was fortunate to have attorney Ben Meiselas from Los Angeles join me. What I discovered on this podcast is that Ben has done a lot of notable work in our country in a very short period of time, as he is only in his mid-thirties! Ben is a law partner with famed attorney Mark Geragos of the Geragos and Geragos law firm where he heads up the firm’s civil law practice. Among his notable clients and cases, Ben has represented quarterback Colin Kaepernick and also serves as lead counsel in the Fyre Festival class action case. As if his legal work wasn’t enough to keep him busy, you may have heard of Ben’s “part time job” as founder of the Meidas Touch PAC, which he formed with his brothers at the start of the pandemic. Ben, as you’ll hear, is energetic, humble and gracious and he was also awarded the 2019 Variety Impact Lawyer of the Year award. I think you’ll enjoy hearing his story on this 100th episode of the Next Lawyer Up podcast.
