“There’s not another community, ListServ, organization, or school of thought like TLC.” – Ben Cloward

TLC Podcast host Rafe Foreman interviews TLC Graduate Benjamin Cloward (TLC Sept 2013) on how the methods taught in TLC courses translate to actual use in a trial.

Ben is a partner in the Richard Harris Law Firm in Las Vegas, Nevada. In this episode, Ben talks with host Rafe Foreman about the TLC methods he used in winning several big cases in the last few years. Most recently, Ben obtained a stunning verdict of $38.5 million in a wrongful death suit. Ben called on his TLC training and the support of the TLC tribe in preparing his case. “You have individuals who come from all walks of life, from all across the country, who come together with the common bond of wanting to be a warrior for their client…to be a voice for the voiceless.”

Included in this Episode

  • How the TLC “tribe” is an invaluable resource in helping you prepare and try your case.
  • How TLC methods help you look at the story of your case from different perspectives, in order to present your story so that it resonates with your jurors despite their varying experience and backgrounds.

Episode Guest, Benjamin Cloward

In 2017, Ben Cloward was recognized as the Nevada Justice Association’s Trial Lawyer of the Year, the youngest to receive the award. He was also named to the National Trial Lawyers list of “Top 40 Under 40,” reserved for the best young trial attorneys in the country.

Over the past several years, Ben has obtained verdicts in excess of $10 million on several cases; successes he attributes in large part to the methods learned at the Trial Lawyers College. As a follow-on to one of those cases, Ben successfully lobbied the Nevada legislature for passage of AB234 “Harvey’s Law,” requiring paratransit bus drivers to be trained in first aid. Harvey’s Law was inspired by Ben’s work with the Chernikoff family, whose mentally disabled son, Harvey, choked to death while riding a paratransit bus.

Ben loves people and loves to fight for those who can’t fight for themselves. When he’s not in the courtroom, he likes to be outdoors, hunting, fishing or long-range target shooting. Ben is a devoted husband, father and Boston Red Sox fan.
