According to the article:

“When both of your parents are attorneys, you learn about the law around the dinner table. In Ben Bien-Kahn’s family, some of the topics up for discussion included the legal rights of people who struggle with mental illness and/or disabilities and are also incarcerated. That crossover intrigued him and inspired his career path. Today Ben is senior counsel at Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld, where he has litigated class action lawsuits on behalf of people with disabilities as well as wrongful death cases on behalf of families of incarcerated individuals.

‘The Bay Area has been in the forefront in disability law,’ he says. ‘It’s an area I’ve always been interested in,’ and he has devoted his time and talents to getting other attorneys interested. A long-time member of BASF, he first learned about BASF’s Equality Committee on Disability Rights when he attended a panel and learned about the committee’s mission to break down barriers for attorneys with disabilities as well as sponsor educational programs for attorneys practicing disability law. ‘We want to give experts another place to engage,’ he says, as well as professional growth opportunities for new and younger attorneys, through panels, presentations, and CLEs.”
