Benjamin Hart Cunningham

Benjamin H Cunningham (He/Him)(“Ben”):

Ben went to Arizona Summit Law School at night and worked as an injury claims adjuster by day. During law school, Ben participated in the Family Law Clinic as a Rule 38 under the direction of Judge Stasy Avelar. While at the clinic, Ben filed one of the first same-sex dissolutions in Maricopa County and completed a post-decree modification of legal decision-making trial.

After law school, was hired by a small family law firm in Phoenix. However, needing more experience, Ben went to the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office in late 2015, where he completed countless bench trials and more than 20 felony jury trials for offenses ranging from homicide, child abuse, white collar offenses, robbery, aggravated assault on law enforcement officers, and substance possession. Ben spent his last two years at the County Attorney’s office in the Family Violence Bureau, where he participated in numerous abusive head trauma investigations, medical child abuse investigations, and several high-profile domestic violence cases.

In 2021, Ben joined Donaldson Stewart, PC, to practice both family and juvenile law. Ben’s practice with Donaldson Stewart, PC focuses on mediated outcomes; however, Ben leads the litigation department with Donaldson Stewart, PC, and routinely volunteers to handle trials whenever necessary and wherever he can. His focus is on helping survivors of domestic violence navigate the family court and ensuring their safety and the safety of their children.

Outside of the office, Ben spends time with his wife Gillian, their three children, two cats, and their dog. Ben is an avid fan of the Los Angeles Chargers, Florida Gators, live musical performances, and weekly rounds of golf.
