If you speak with Ben for even a few minutes, it’s impossible to ignore his energy. But that motivation transcends his roles as Attorney, Chief Executive Officer and Owner at ChasenBoscolo. Ben is passionate about people, and when it comes to his clients, he’s focused on fighting for their rights in a world that doesn’t always look out for their best interests.
Ben was taught the importance of hard work at a young age by both of his grandfathers—one of whom immigrated from Italy and the other who worked as a mechanical engineer in Connecticut. Throughout his life, he’s seen firsthand how people in power take advantage of honest, hardworking Americans. As such, Ben believes his education and work experience are privileges he is obligated to use to fight for those who are unfairly stepped on and bullied. His legal practice is more than just verdicts and settlements—Ben fights for true change. He works to make sure that not only his clients’ rights—but just as importantly the rights of others—are protected for years to come.
In all of the cases he handles, Ben demonstrates an unwavering commitment to pursuing justice. For example, he once represented an injured truck driver who was denied workers’ compensation benefits on the grounds that he was a sub-contractor and not an employee of the company. The truck driver initially lost his case, but Ben didn’t give up. He and his team appealed to the highest court in the District of Columbia and persuaded them to change the law. The new law not only made sure that the truck driver received the benefits he needed to care for his family but also expanded the coverage of the District of Columbia’s workers’ compensation law to protect more working men and women.
Ben fights for his clients and their families in areas of the law such as premises liability, serious motor vehicle crashes, trucking collisions, nursing home abuse and neglect, construction accidents, workers’ compensation and product liability.
Despite the passion Ben shows for his clients and being a lawyer, the single most important thing to him is his family. After being married and watching the birth of his three kids, one of the happiest of days in Ben’s life happened in February 2017 when his wife Shari joined the ChasenBoscolo family as a trial lawyer. Ben will tell anyone who will listen that the most precious times of his life are spent with Shari and their three children.
If you are looking for a trial lawyer who is both a family man and an ambitious advocate for his clients and community, you should talk to Ben.
