Ben Bireley Attorney

“By representing injured plaintiffs, I’ve come to appreciate how your life fundamentally changes when someone else’s mistake injures you. Whether it’s losing the ability to provide for a family, care for children, or just enjoy life like you used to, an injury can have devastating consequences. I take seriously the trust you place in us when you ask us for help. And I’ll work hard to get you just compensation."

Ben is a smart, aggressive, and creative lawyer with experience on both plaintiff and defense sides. He joined us because he wanted to focus his practice on representing people who have been injured against companies who cannot see past their bottom line.

Meet Ben Bireley

Ben joined Arnold & Itkin in 2016 after working at a nationally recognized commercial litigation boutique in Houston, where he represented commercial plaintiffs and defendants in complex, multi-party litigation, learning not only how the very best defense attorneys litigate, but also how skilled and dedicated plaintiff’s attorneys can beat them.

While Ben worked on numerous high-dollar disputes—including, for example, claims asserted against a national dialysis provider under the False Claims Act, breach of fiduciary duty claims asserted against one of the world’s leading palm-oil producers, and several oil-and-gas contract disputes with substantial sums at issue—he is most proud of his work representing the Boys & Girls Harbor, a charitable home for abused and neglected children, in litigation with the City of Morgan’s Point, which resulted in a multi-million dollar settlement for the Harbor.

Before working in private practice, Ben was privileged to have spent one year clerking for the Honorable Lee H. Rosenthal in the Southern District of Texas, widely considered to be one of the best trial judges in the country. He graduated in the top ten percent from the University of Texas School of Law in 2010, spending his final year there working as Chief Articles Editor of the prestigious Texas Law Review. Before starting law school, Ben taught at Jesuit College Preparatory School in Dallas for two years, receiving a Work of the Heart Award before he left. He graduated from Boston College in 2005 with honors and was a member of Boston College’s top debate team from the first day.

Ben's practice includes maritime accidents, trucking accidents, plant and refinery accidents, and other high-stakes personal injury cases. No matter the case, Ben works hard to obtain the best results for his client.

When not working, Ben enjoys spending time with his wife of 10 years and 3 daughters. He is a member of St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Houston, an avid (but declining) basketball player, and enjoys spending time by the ocean.
