Benjamin T. Boscolo
ASSISTANT DEAN OF RULES & CASE SELECTION
When Ben was 15 years old, he knew he wanted to be a trial lawyer. To achieve this goal, he worked two jobs during the summer to help pay his way through college. He worked as a laborer for a construction company during the day and as a nurse’s aide in the evenings. Working as a nurse’s aide in state-run retirement homes taught Ben that helping people made him feel better about himself. During that time, he realized that being a trial lawyer would give him the chance to help people every day.
After completing college and law school, Ben realized his dream and became a trial lawyer. His career has been committed to using and, when necessary, fighting to change the legal system to protect injured workers. Ben has tried hundreds of jury trials in state and federal courts in Maryland and Washington, D.C. He has argued many cases in the highest courts of Washington, D.C., and Maryland that have made and changed the law. His client-focused, competitive drive makes him a successful litigator and advocate for injured workers.
As a result of his desire to be the best voice possible for working people, Ben was honored to be named to the National Football League Players Association’s Workers’ Compensation Panel. Since 2000, Ben has added members of the Redskins, Ravens, D.C. United, Capitals, Nationals, Orioles, Mystics and many minor league franchises to the group of workers whose rights he is privileged to protect. This work is high-profile and sounds glamorous. However, Ben treats professional athletes the exact same way as any other worker who is injured on the job. Whether his clients are professional athletes or working in concessions at the stadium, Ben represents each of them with passion and is determined to get them the benefits to which they are entitled. Ben shares this passion with each Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland personal injury lawyer of Chasen Boscolo.
On March 10, 2012, Ben was inducted into the College of Workers’ Compensation Lawyers (CWCL) at its annual meeting in San Antonio, Texas. The CWCL was established to honor attorneys who have distinguished themselves in the field of workers’ compensation, and induction is based on traits such as character, integrity, professional expertise and leadership.
Ben is a family man. When he is not fighting for the rights of injured workers, he spends as much time as possible with his wife and children. The family loves traveling to visit their grandparents.Whether spending time with his family or trying to maintain the family business feel of the firm as it grows, Ben knows that genuinely caring about people is its own reward.
