Ben Levy has won more jury trials in three years than most attorneys do in a lifetime. In an era when few attorneys ever see the inside of a courtroom and even fewer actually try cases, Ben Levy stands out as one of the youngest attorneys in history to rack up more than 10 civil jury trial victories in Georgia.
Ben has had the good fortune of learning from excellent attorneys at every step of his career, and he gets results by litigating each case as if it will go to trial. He meticulously examines all angles in order to anticipate and effectively counter the opposing attorneys’ moves, and he understands how each piece of the case fits into the overall trial strategy. His attention to detail, proactive maneuvering, and tireless work ethic are the tools that keep him ahead of the competition.
His love for trial advocacy began at the University of Georgia School of Law, where he was student chapter president of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, served on the executive board of the mock trial team, and argued motions as a student prosecutor for the District Attorneys of Fulton County and Athens-Clarke County. While interning for the Fulton County District Attorney, Ben argued against (and defeated) a motion for new trial filed by a murderer on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted” list.
His skills in the courtroom did not go unnoticed. Immediately after law school, Ben served as the second-chair attorney for a month-long internet defamation trial and obtained a $635,000 jury verdict for his client.
After winning his first trial, Ben joined an insurance defense firm to better understand how insurance companies evaluate personal injury lawsuits. Not only did he learn how insurance companies decide how to settle cases, but he also learned how they defend those cases at trial. Ben now uses this invaluable knowledge and experience against the insurance companies in order to provide expert representation for his clients.
Ben’s passion for fighting injustice did not appear out of thin air – he was born with it. As the grandson of Holocaust survivors, he knows all too well what happens when bystanders remain silent while others face persecution, oppression, and discrimination. Although his grandparents managed to survive the ghettos and Nazi concentration camps of Europe, many of his family members did not. This is why Ben became an attorney- to stand up for victims harmed by the wrongdoing of others and give a loud, powerful voice to those who have no voice of their own.
Ben’s leadership and commitment to helping those in need extends far beyond the courtroom. He donates his time, money, and energy to various charities, including the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta and Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF), and he also volunteers as a basketball coach for a team of developmentally disabled adults. He serves on the executive committee of the Under 40 Board at the Jewish Federation, a charity that partners with over 60 organizations to provide care for Holocaust survivors, food and financial assistance for low income families, and career services for the unemployed, to name just a few of the hundreds of ways the Jewish Federation improves the lives of people in Atlanta and around the world. Ben also serves on the executive committee of the board of directors at FIDF (Southeast Region), a charity that offers a range of programs that address the educational, social, economic, and recreational needs of Israel’s soldiers and their families.
