Hi, my name is Benjamin Long. I am the founding attorney of Detroit Business Lawyers. I am a native Detroiter, now residing in Ferndale. I have a passion for business, from talking with potential clients in the planning stages to assisting growing businesses expand. I graduated with a B.S. and B.A. from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, with honors, in 2004. In 2007, I began law school and business school at Wayne State University in Detroit. I focused my legal studies on business law and estate planning, and my M.B.A. studies on finance. After passing the bar exam in 2011, I spent time as a litigator as well as a property investor. I returned to Wayne State Law to obtain my masters in law (LLM), in corporate and finance law to further hone my knowledge. I have assisted business of all sizes, and worked on simple and complex estate plans throughout the Metropolitan Detroit area.

Along with operating Detroit Business Lawyers, I am the founder of the Ferndale Cat Shelter, a no-kill cat shelter located in Ferndale, MI. I am also a property investor. In my free time, I enjoy weightlifting, reading, cooking, and traveling to northern Michigan
