Ben A. Shuman

Associate Attorney
Reno, Nevada

Ben Shuman grew up in the Biggest Little City in the World, Reno. He attended the University of Nevada-Reno from 2008-2012, and was one of the first graduates of UNR with a Neuroscience degree. After working for a few years, Ben decided that he wanted to follow a dream to help those in need of professional assistance.

Ben attended William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and graduated near the top of his class. He frequented the Dean's List during his time there and earned the CALI Award for Academic Excellence in Administrative Law. He was the President of Sports and Entertainment Law Association and helped build relationships and networks for his fellow students interested in Sports and Entertainment Law. In addition, he interned at the City of Henderson City Attorney's Office and the UNLV Office of the General Counsel, gaining valuable practical experience in a vast array of legal issues.

Ben credits his ability to think fast during critical situations and deconstruct complex problems as the reason for his continued success. These skills directly translate to success working for clients in the office and in the courtroom. Ben loves communicating with people and believes that the client should be just as informed about their case as the attorney. His ability to translate complex issues into simple, understandable pieces of the puzzle is what makes him a great asset to his clients.

Ben is admitted to practice law in the State of Nevada. At MOBO, Ben practices primarily in the areas of Business Law and Corporate Law. He also provides assistance to the Family Law and Civil Litigation departments. Ben thrives on negotiating deals, figuring out the "why" behind the "what," and getting the best outcome for his clients. In his free time, you can find Ben on the golf course, out at the lake, or spending time with family and friends.

Ben is MOBO.
