Benjamin Herbst is a Maryland personal injury attorney who handles all types of cases ranging from car accidents to defective products and slip and falls. He has extensive jury trial experience and has represented clients all 24 counties in the state, as well as Baltimore City and the two main federal courts. Benjamin was born and raised in Maryland and attended Pikesville High School in Baltimore County. After high school he attended the University of Michigan where he graduated with University Honors and was member of the men’s lacrosse team. Benjamin then went on to earn his JD from the University of Miami School of Law in Coral Gables, Florida. During law school he interned at a high profile personal injury law firm, and also gained valuable courtroom experience working for the Miami-Dade Public Defender.
After graduating law school and passing the bar, Benjamin went on to work for a medium sized personal injury law firm before branching out on his own and creating The Herbst Firm. He has been licensed to practice law in Maryland and Florida for over 10 years and in the course of his career has represented well over 1,000 clients. Benjamin is committed to providing the best possible representation; he does whatever it takes to secure the highest possible dollar amount in his client’s cases, and keeps them informed and involved each step of the way.
Benjamin is accessible to his clients 7 days a week, and is always willing to meet in person or talk after hours or on weekends. It’s stressful enough to deal with an injury, and nobody should ever be subjected to the additional stress over being left in the dark about what his or her lawyer is doing on the case. Benjamin takes attorney client communication seriously, and provides his cell phone to all clients. Over the course of his legal career Benjamin has listened to clients speak about previous lawyers, and their biggest complaints were often that “my previous lawyer never returned my calls” or “the last lawyer was impossible to get in touch with”. As a client of The Herbst Firm, this will never happen. Ever. Benjamin gets results and he makes an effort to stay in touch with his clients at all times.
Benjamin handles all automobile related accidents including car, truck and motorcycle accidents. He also represents bicycle riders and pedestrians that are injured due to the negligence of another person. Benjamin takes on big businesses in premises liability cases such as slip and falls, negligent security, escalator malfunction, elevator failure and falling objects. Additionally he represents clients that are injured due to defective products.
