Benjamin D. Light

Ben has 22 years of experience representing clients in serious personal injury matters, disputed property insurance claims and other civil matters where people have been damaged through various forms of bad behavior. He has also represented several insurance companies in state and federal litigation in Florida. He is admitted to practice in both Florida and New Jersey, where he first began practicing law after
attending Rutgers University for both his law and undergraduate degrees. He was an editor of the Rutgers Law Review during law school.

Some of Ben’s reported matters include:

  • Plastic Surgery Center, PA v. Malouf Chevrolet – Cadillac, Inc., 457 N.J. Super. 565 (App. Div. 2019) (setting precedent on the statute of limitations for medical provider claims under New Jersey Workers’ Compensation statutes)
  • Mehta v. Fairleigh Dickinson University, 530 Fed. App’x. 191 (3rd Cir. 2013) (reversing summary judgment granted to private university on plaintiff’s racial discrimination claim)
  • Capodici v. City of Jersey City, 2005 WL 2452698 (D.N.J. 2005) (denying summary judgment to police officers on plaintiff’s civil rights claims arising from an unlawful arrest)

Ben was also honored to have been selected to defend a sitting Superior Court Judge in New Jersey against charges of misconduct brought by other members of the judiciary. See, In The Matter Of Deborah M. Gross-Quatrone, Judge Of The Superior Court; SUPREME COURT OF NEW JERSEY ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON JUDICIAL CONDUCT DOCKET NO: ACJC 2016-135. The formal charges against her sought removal from the bench but after a trial before a panel of the New Jersey Supreme Court in Trenton, the charges were reduced to a two-month suspension.

Ben moved to Pinellas County in 2018 and became a member of the Florida bar. He began practicing at a large downtown Tampa firm handling complex insurance coverage matters before joining the Magazine & Light Law Group in 2022. Ben enjoys spending time with his family and friends, playing golf, and enjoying the rest of Tampa Bay.

After a house fire in November 2022 I battled with my insurance company to get the funds necessary to rebuild our home. Consulting with Ben was the best decision! He explained the whole process to me, was very responsive, kind, empathetic and knowledgeable. After I presented the insurance company with my new knowledge and that I was ready to involve an attorney they quickly paid out what I was owed. It meant more than I can ever explain to have someone that truly cared about helping me rebuild and move forward
