In this episode of Lawful Good, you will hear how Ben and his first law partner, Daryl Parks, determined to work together to fight for their people. Ben describes their first days in law school:
"We were there and we looked around and it was very funny. Everybody had laptops. We didn't have laptops. We said to ourselves, man, we the poorest people here at the law school. We got to stick together to help each other. And we formed a friendship and a bond and it endures us to this day. When we graduated law school, we said, we want to do law to help our community, to help our people."
