Benjamin J. Humphries, attorney at law

Born in Knoxville, Tennessee and raised in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Ben is proud to have been selected as a McConnell Scholar and received a full scholarship to the University of Louisville where he studied and received a Bachelor Degree in Political Science. Ben was then awarded a scholarship to attend the University of Louisville Law School. After law school Ben moved to Elizabethtown to be near his family and to work with his cousin John Scott. Ben then started his own practice in 2008 and then went into practice with his good friend Lewis Graham, whom he met in law school.

Together, Ben and Lewis have handled every type of case, but soon realized that the people of Hardin County and Elizabethtown could not get the enhanced type of estate planning that was available in bigger cities. So Ben and Lewis joined a nationwide program called Lawyers With Purpose and were trained on asset protection, irrevocable trusts, Medicaid applications and Ben is a member of NAELA and also enrolled in the Stetson Law School Elder Law Program, and is accredited Veterans Benefits Attorney and a member of the Kentucky Elder Law Section.
