Benjamin N. Philley
Upon graduation from law school, Ben became an associate with Wise Carter Child and Caraway, where he defended cases involving major railroad companies, including Amtrak, Illinois Central Railroad Company, and Kansas City Southern Railroad Company. Ben also represented the defense in complex litigation involving claims related to medical malpractice, automobile accidents, and nursing home abuse.
While Ben is now 100% devoted to serving severely injured individuals, his experience in the defense of litigation is invaluable in obtaining favorable results for his clients as he knows how the other side works. Ben is committed to reaching the best possible result for his clients.
Currently, Ben is a personal injury attorney who devotes his practice exclusively to the representation of severely injured victims as a result of someone else's negligence. Although Ben has a wide spectrum of personal injury litigation, he emphasizes his practice in the area of automobile accidents, trucking accidents, medical malpractice, wrongful death, defective pharmaceuticals/medical devices, nursing home abuse, railroad crossing accidents, and Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) claims.
Ben is married to Melissa Wise Philley formerly of Brookhaven, Mississippi. They have two daughters, Libby Lane and Layla. He enjoys hunting, fishing, water skiing, wakeboarding, playing golf, and is an avid Ole Miss fan. He, along with his wife and daughters, attend Broadmoor Baptist Church in Madison, Mississippi.
