Ben K. DuBose — Attorney at Law

Ben DuBose Attorney at LawBen DuBose has over fifteen years of asbestos litigation experience, successfully fighting for hundreds of mesothelioma victims in courts throughout the United States.

Ben was born and raised in Dallas — a place he still calls home. While DuBose Law Firm helps mesothelioma victims across the United States, Ben has also represented many Dallas-Ft. Worth area mesothelioma victims throughout his career — from current residents of Dallas who worked in other regions of the country to others who constructed and worked in the buildings that shaped Dallas.

Ben has discovered asbestos containing properties of products that had not been widely recognized in asbestos litigation. For instance, Ben is nationally known for investigating the asbestos content of oilfield drilling mud additives and has successfully represented oilfield workers that were exposed to asbestos drilling mud additives on drilling rigs in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, North and South Dakota. Ben has also represented hundreds of mesothelioma victims with wide-ranging work experience including: carpenters, sheetrockers, plumbers, pipefitters, steamfitters, boilermakers, insulators, automotive mechanics and veterans of all branches of the U.S. armed forces. He has also represented children and spouses of those who were occupationally exposed to asbestos and brought asbestos dust home on their clothing.

During his legal career, Ben has practiced law with some of the nation's most prominent law firms representing personal injury victims. Thanks to his legal savvy and over a decade of experience litigating complex cases, Ben was recognized by his peers and D Magazine in 2009 and 2011 as one of the “Best Personal Lawyers in Dallas” as well as a “Rising Star of Texas Law” in 2005 and a Texas “Super Lawyer” in 2009 and 2010 by Thompson & Reuters as printed in Texas Monthly magazine.

Ben cherishes the opportunity to help injured victims and their families. “Our legal system is one of the few places where the little guy can have an equal chance against a giant corporation. As a lawyer, I'm proud to fight for everyday Americans and to deter corporate misconduct,” he says. Not only has Ben fought to help others through his representation of mesothelioma victims, but also through his pro bono work. In one case Ben represented a victim of the 9/11 attacks seeking compensation from the September 11th Victims Compensation Fund through the non-profit legal services organization, Trial Lawyers Care. Ben was also part of a legal team working with the public interest law firm, Public Justice, seeking to prevent unsafe asbestos abatement practices in the case of Families for Asbestos Compliance, Testing and Safety v. City of St. Louis as well as recent efforts by the EPA and the City of Ft. Worth, Texas to test the controversial “wet method” of asbestos removal.

In addition to his extensive experience representing asbestos mesothelioma victims, Ben has represented a wide variety of serious personal injury and wrongful death victims. Ben demonstrated his legal talents while still in law school, graduating cum laude and named to the prestigious Board of Barristers. Outside of his busy legal practice, Ben is a devoted husband and father to three beautiful children.
