From as far back as he can remember Benjamin Berkley was always fascinated by law. Growing up in Long Beach, New York his daily schedule revolved around grainy black and white reruns of Perry Mason, who with the help of Della Street, solved the most complicated of crimes imaginable – wining cases for their all but convicted clients. So it was no surprise to his family and friends that upon High School graduation, young Ben Berkley chose law as his career path.
After years of intense study Benjamin Berkley earned his Juris Doctorate degree from Western State University. He has practiced law for over thirty eight years, specializing in Estate Planning and Estate Administration. Mr. Berkley also serves as a panel referral attorney for the nation’s largest pre-paid legal programs including: ARAG Legal, Hyatt Legal, and Legal Shield.
In addition to being admitted to the State Bar of California, he is also licensed to practice before the United States Supreme Court.
Mr. Berkley always enjoyed writing but never seemed to have the time to pen the book he wanted to write. His days were filled with building his law practice and spending time with his wife and two children. It wasn’t until Ben’s uncle became ill that he realized how important it was for him to write ‘MY WISHES, A PLANNING GUIDE FOR THE INEVITABLE.
Since writing “My Wishes,” he has written “the Complete Executor’s Guidebook and Winning Your Social Security Disability case. The books are published by Sourcebooks and are available in all major bookstores as well as on line.
