Welcome to our web site, and thank you for taking the time to learn more about the Benson-Law-Office.   I
am a sole practitioner dedicated to providing  quality, personalized and effective legal counsel.  I offer the
atmosphere of an old fashioned small town lawyer's office, but offer the big city services, technology and
convenience of being located in the heart of the legal district in beautiful, downtown Rock Island.  
Areas of Practice
Prior to earning my M.B.A at Western Illinois University, I had the pleasure of working and gaining
experience in many industries and occupations.  I have labored in lawn care, worked at a corrugated
cardboard plant, sold insurance and mutual funds and managed a rental car company's branch office.  After
earning my Master of Business Administration degree I spent over 5 years working in customer service for
the local phone company.  I took these experiences with me to law school where I worked as a Graduate
Assistant for the Vice-President of Human Resources and also served as president of Phi Alpha Delta Law
Fraternity. After being admitted to the Illinois Bar in 2003 I served as a staff member for a Presidential
campaign and then went to work as an Assistant Chief Counsel and Special Assistant Attorney General for
the Illinois Department of Transportation in Springfield.   These experiences have given me a unique
perspective on the law and has prepared me to take on the legal challenges and problems people face in
their daily lives.  

If you are looking for an impersonal attorney who has staff do all the work, then please pick up the yellow
pages and pick one out.  If you want personal service from an attorney who knows your name and will
provide you with open, honest and effective legal representation, then give me a call today at the
