“He is able to communicate clearly all the complicated concepts to all the different parties and brings creative workable solutions.”

Abraham Paul Sarkis


At the heart of his practice, Ben helps families navigate the complexities of their personal and financial worlds, building solutions around clients’ specific needs in estate planning.

Ben designs and implements sophisticated estate plans for high-net-worth individuals. From the moment he starts talking with a client, their family becomes his family. He uses a variety of financial vehicles to create customized approaches that help his clients succeed from both a business and personal standpoint.

Ben’s interest in financial solutions dates to age 24, when he and his wife found out they were expecting twins. After setting up an estate plan for his growing family, Ben discovered his professional calling: helping families protect themselves and providing them financial peace of mind. Ben left his job as a financial advisor and pursued his law degree with the sole focus of becoming an estate planning attorney.

“He is able to communicate clearly all the complicated concepts to all the different parties and brings creative workable solutions.”

Outside the Office

For Ben, it begins and ends with family.

If he is not working, he is with his family. Ben and his wife cherish time spent together taking in the arts, especially when it involves cheering on their four children in musical and theater performances. Another of Ben’s favorite things to do is spend time with his grandparents.

Ben also enjoys entertaining. He likes to cook, throw dinner parties and find any excuse to gather with friends and family.
