    Attorney Profile

    Benjamin Ikuta is an attorney at Irvine, California-based Hodes Milman LLP. Focusing his practice exclusively on personal injury and wrongful death litigation, he represents clients throughout Orange County and other parts of Southern California who have been harmed by the negligence of other parties. Admitted to practice before all California state courts since 2008, Mr. Ikuta is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Central, Eastern and Southern Districts of California. His successful track record throughout his career has earned him a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo.

    The types of cases that Mr. Ikuta has handled have arisen out of incidents involving truck and other motor vehicle crashes, premises liability, sexual abuse and medical malpractice, and he has been able to obtain numerous sizable jury awards and negotiated settlements on behalf of his plaintiff clients. Among his representative results are a $1.5 million settlement in a case based on a failure to diagnose adrenal insufficiency that led to brain damage and a settlement of nearly $2.5 million in a lawsuit on behalf of a client who was severely injured after slipping and falling at a health care facility.

    Prior to joining Hodes Milman LLP in 2016, Mr. Ikuta spent several years defending health care institutions and their insurance companies, and this experience has allowed him to anticipate some of the tactics that he now faces in his current plaintiff's practice. Mr. Ikuta is a graduate of the University of California, Los Angeles, where he received both a Bachelor of Arts in economics and a Bachelor of Science in mathematics in 2015. His legal education was obtained at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, and he was an editor of the Hastings Law Journal before being awarded his Juris Doctor in 2008.
