Ben joined the staff of Lawson, Reid & Dean in 2022 as Records Administrator. He is tasked with bringing cohesiveness and collaboration to our quickly growing firm by streamlining the availability and flow of information between the attorneys, staff, and our clients.
Growing up the son of a Naval Aviator, Ben learned early that you live wherever the Navy sent your family, but Cordele was always ‘home.’ He finally moved home to finish high school at Crisp Academy and went on to Mercer University where he studied Piano Performance at the Townsend School of Music. Ben is married to Elizabeth Drennan and together they have a son, Isaac, a goldendoodle named Barnaby, and three Siamese cats who graciously allow them to live in ‘their’ house.
Ben is active in the community, serving on the board of directors for the Cordele Rotary Club, volunteering with the Cordele-Crisp Chamber of Commerce, as well as serving on the Crisp County Board of Education.
Outside of work, Ben is a FAA Licensed Commercial Hot Air Balloon Pilot and enjoys traveling the world flying with his family and friends. Ben and Liz are also lovers of the water; especially the gulf coast of Florida, where they started their family and continue to visit regularly.
