Professional Experience

Benjamin Nivison is the president and managing partner of the firm. He is a results-oriented personal injury attorney and counselor who believes that exceptional client service starts with a genuine interest in and understanding of each client’s unique circumstances. No two cases are precisely the same because no two clients are precisely the same.

Benjamin focuses his practice on the resolution of claims on behalf of injured people and their families and has significant experience trying catastrophic personal injury cases, FELA (railroad injury cases), medical negligence claims, products liability actions, and wrongful death matters. Over the course of his career, he has also had significant successes bringing consumer protection and whistleblower matters on behalf of members of the public. Benjamin has handled matters through trial and appeal in both state and federal courts, as well as in various administrative settings.

Prior to joining Rossi Vucinovich, Benjamin was a litigation attorney associated with two well-known Pacific Northwest law firms. He defended matters for insurance companies and large corporations, and he became intimately familiar with the bullying culture such litigation so often reflects. Too many cases were treated by insurers as wars of attrition, with little regard for the fact that people and their families on the other side were suffering in very real ways. Benjamin lost his appetite for that type of work, and he shifted his practice toward helping the proverbial “little guy.” This culminated with him joining Rossi Vucinovich in 2016, where he now is able to draw upon that prior defense experience to help drive positive results for clients who need and deserve his help.
