Ben Rumph joined the New Orleans office of Baron & Budd in 2018, where he brings a passion to seeking justice for injured individuals to the firm’s Mesothelioma Litigation Group. His practice is devoted to zealous advocacy on behalf of individuals who have been gravely harmed by exposure to asbestos.
His desire to help others led Mr. Rumph to devote his legal career to representing people who have been adversely affected by the negligence of others. He considers it a privilege to seek legal redress for men and women from all walks of life and backgrounds through his thoughtful and compassionate representation.
A Lubbock, Texas, native, Mr. Rumph’s family has always been politically active on a national level, which spurred in him at a young age a lifelong interest in history and politics. Believing one has a civic duty to participate in the political process, Mr. Rumph thought he would be following his grandparents into the political arena when he attended Texas Christian University in Fort Worth and received a degree in political science.
A summer interning on Capitol Hill led to a change of heart, however, and a subsequent job with a plaintiff’s firm back in Texas made him realize that he could have a more direct and rewarding impact on individuals’ lives by seeking justice for them in court than he ever would in politics.
During his studies at TCU, Mr. Rumph was a member of the John V. Roach Honors College while he pursued a double minor in History and Classical Studies. He also spent a semester studying at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. The time spent living in another country made him exceedingly grateful for the opportunities he had been given growing up and also conscious of his responsibility to effect greater good on behalf of others not afforded the same advantages.
Now, Mr. Rumph is proud to fight the companies that exposed generations of workers and innocent bystanders to the deadly carcinogen known as asbestos. As a part of the Baron & Budd Mesothelioma Litigation Group, Mr. Rumph is honored to lend his passionate voice to those who have been victimized by unscrupulous manufacturers.
