As an attorney with Reinhart, Ben is able to quickly and effectively partner with other practice areas, which adds significant value and depth to the legal services he is able to provide his clients. His experience also includes assisting individuals with bringing family members into the U.S. through the immigration process to obtain U.S. citizenship, and his level of expertise enables him to offer proactive legal advice that anticipates potential problems and resolve them before they become issues.
Over the course of his career, he has successfully argued cases before the Executive Office of Immigration Review, the Board of Immigrations Appeals, and the Administrative Appeals Office, and he frequently speaks as a panelist on the topic of immigration. He is listed in Best Lawyers in America, was named as Best Lawyers’ 2012 Milwaukee Immigration Lawyer of the Year and is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. Ben has received a peer review rating of BV from Martindale-Hubbell for his high legal ability and ethical standards, has published many professional articles in the field of immigration law, and has edited the Immigration Law chapter of the Wisconsin Attorney’s Desk Reference for many years.
Immigration laws and procedures are complex and constantly evolving; therefore, Ben helps employers stay abreast of the latest developments to ensure they understand, implement, and are compliant with the latest policies, procedures, and regulations such as the Form I-9. Clients appreciate the creative solutions he devises in order to solve their complex legal problems as well as his entertaining sense of humor and amusing stories. Nearly 20 years into his career as an attorney, Ben remains confident that he selected the correct field by abandoning his Marine Science background to pursue a law degree, since dolphins have very sharp teeth and bite frequently—a work hazard he does not face as a lawyer.
