Benjamin Cohen joined Rudolph Clarke after graduating from Penn State Dickinson School of Law.
After growing up in Harrisburg, Benjamin attended Temple University for undergraduate studies. During this time, he fell in love with the Philadelphia area, enjoying Temple Owls Basketball, the area museums and music venues, as well as the rooting for the Sixers and the Eagles! Benjamin also found a strong sense of community volunteering with his fraternity, particularly with the Jewish Relief Agency.
Benjamin always had a passion for fairness, predominantly with regard to equal opportunity, fair housing, and LGBTQ rights. This ambition brought him back to Central Pennsylvania to study law at Penn State Dickinson School of Law. There he interned with Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency and the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General, working on public policy and consumer rights issues, developing a desire for public service. He also worked as research assistant to Professor Anne Toomey McKenna, where he worked on projects to educate Pennsylvania judges on cyber issues in Pennsylvania courts and explain attorneys’ professional responsibility after sustaining a data breach under ABA Opinion 483. As a result, he also receive a Cyber Law Certification upon graduation.
Benjamin is excited to be back in the Greater Philadelphia area and serve municipal as well as private clients in an array of legal matters.
