Ben was admitted as a solicitor to the Supreme Court of Queensland and High Court of Australia in 2006 having completed his undergraduate studies at the University of New England, Armidale. He also completed postgraduate studies at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane and College of Law in Sydney.

Since graduation, Ben has practised exclusively in regional New South Wales in towns including Moree and Armidale, and Muswellbrook since 2011. He says the best result as a lawyer is closing a file knowing he has obtained the best possible result for his client, particularly in Family Law owing to its raw and emotional nature.
