Ben H. Stoddard is an associate attorney at Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard, LLP. He joined the firm during his second year of law school in 2013. He has been with the firm ever since, and quickly worked his way from law clerk to trial attorney, serving as second chair during a multimillion dollar jury trial within months of being admitted to practice law.

As a member of Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard, Mr. Stoddard has represented victims of catastrophic car accidents, product liability cases, bar fights, and bicycle accidents. He says he especially enjoys working with clients who have suffered traumatic brain injuries. “Traumatic brain injury victims are often able to walk normally, talk normally, and look completely healthy,” says Mr. Stoddard, “but the reality is that most people who have suffered a TBI are dealing with varying degrees of cognitive deficit, personality change, and constant pain, even though they appear completely healthy.” Through his experience working with brain injury victims at Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, Mr. Stoddard understands how to get jurors and insurance carriers to see and acknowledge these “invisible” injuries, and how to secure just and fair compensation for his clients.

Mr. Stoddard was born and raised in Hanford, CA in the heart of California’s Central Valley. He graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 2010, and then went on to receive his law degree from Santa Clara University School of Law in 2015. He resides in Mountain View, CA with his wife Laura.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
