Benjamin J. Stueve represents individuals and companies in a variety of business matters, consumer cases, and class action litigation. He has played key roles in litigation involving data breaches, insurance practices and contract disputes and has argued before the Kansas Supreme Court. He brings considerable legal writing experience that includes drafting motions to dismiss, discovery, pleadings, and a dispositive motion that succeeded in federal court.
As former defense attorney, federal law clerk and English teacher, Ben is adept at finding creative solutions in difficult situations and developing focused strategies for complex matters. He credits his experience teaching numerous grade levels in both private and public schools with forging an individual-centered approach and steadfastness while pursuing resolutions for clients.
While attending law school, Ben worked as a legal intern at Kansas Legal Services and as a judicial intern for U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas Judge Carlos Murguia. He was also a summer associate at Stinson Leonard Street LLP, now known as Stinson LLP.
After law school, Ben served as a law clerk to District Judge Stephen R. Bough of the United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri. During this time, he gained intimate exposure to an array of civil litigation matters and the inner workings of courts. Following his clerkship, he returned to Stinson as an associate in the Litigation Associates group. His time at the AmLaw 200 firm provided valuable, first-hand perspective to how defense lawyers assess cases and develop strategies.
Now at Stueve Siegel Hanson, Ben applies the valuable insights gained throughout his legal and teaching careers to effectively identify and communicate the most compelling aspects of clients’ cases.
Ben is actively involved in legal community and youth organizations, including serving as the chairperson for the law student mentorship program of the Federal Bar Association Chapter for the Districts of Kansas and Western Missouri, and volunteering at Operation Breakthrough as a member of Lawyers Encouraging Academic Performance (LEAP).
Outside of his practice, Ben enjoys spending time with his wife and three young children, including coaching his daughter’s T-Ball team and passing on his Eagle Scout experience as a cub scout leader in his son’s pack.
