For over 40 years, Ben Rice has litigated civil cases in the State and Federal Courts of North Alabama. He has tried over 100 civil jury cases and a similar number of non-jury cases. 

While much of Ben's work has been on behalf of insurance companies and their insureds, he has also represented individuals and business organizations in various types of litigation. His trial experience includes cases involving motor vehicle and trucking accidents, product liability, premises liability, professional malpractice, governmental liability, media liability, construction liability, work place accidents and insurance disputes including coverage issues, bad faith and arson. This broad base of experience has served as the basis for, and been expanded by, Ben's service as a mediator in cases, both by request of the parties and appointment by the Courts. 

Ben has also been asked to speak at numerous seminars by both clients and other attorneys and is frequently consulted by other attorneys for his opinion on legal issues. He has also served as an expert witness in litigated cases.
