Benjamin P. Feld is a law partner with the firm Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld. Mr. Feld has been representing injured workers since 2002, providing his expertise in the areas of Workers’ Compensation, Social Security Disability, and third-party litigation services. Mr. Feld is also a Certified Specialist in Workers’ Compensation with the State Bar of California, one of only four applicant attorneys in the County with this distinction (two of the other three are the other partners in the firm). His work has led not only to successful outcomes for his clients, but also citable appellate precedent. Mr. Feld also manages the firm’s Human Resources and IT responsibilities, recently taking the firm “green” by transitioning from an antiquated paper-oriented system to cutting edge of paperless legal administration.
A graduate of the Santa Barbara College of Law, Mr. Feld has remained an active alumnus of the campus. Mr. Feld is also a member of the California Applicants’ Attorneys Association, the educational and policy group for workers’ compensation attorneys representing the disabled. In addition, Mr. Feld has an extensive business background. Before practicing law, Mr. Feld was a local business owner and employer for 10 years dealing hands-on with many of the issues facing both employers and employees in the workplace.
Personally, Mr. Feld is kept very busy with his family, which includes his wife Rhonda Henderson, and their five children. When not involved in school and extracurricular activities, Mr. Feld enjoys running on our local beaches, paths, and races, traveling, and enjoying relaxing moments with his extensive family.
