Mt. Pleasant Civil Litigation Attorney
A strong advocate at trial and mediation
Attorney Ben Pogue joined the Milligan Law Firm in 2009, where he has tried numerous cases to verdict and has enjoyed working with Tom Milligan — one of the most experienced trial attorneys in South Carolina.
Ben handles cases involving personal injury, admiralty, defamation and contract disputes in state and federal courts. In 2011, Ben delivered a successful verdict as lead counsel for Santee Cooper — South Carolina’s largest energy producer. In July 2010, Ben secured a dismissal of a maritime defamation claim in the U.S. District Court decision Gossett v. McMurtry, 764 F.Supp.2d 782 (D.S.C. 2010).
Before entering legal practice, Ben served as a morning television anchor, reporter and meteorologist at News 14 Carolina in Charlotte, N.C. and WCBD-TV News 2 in Mount Pleasant. Ben’s program at News 2 was ranked as the top-rated morning show in the Lowcountry. Ben retired from his meteorology career in 2005 to run a Red Cross Shelter in Texas following Hurricane Katrina. Drawing upon his extensive knowledge and substantial experience, Ben often acts as a meteorological expert in personal injury litigation cases.
Ben is married to former Charleston news anchor Nina Sossamon-Pogue, now a vice president with Benefitfocus — a health insurance benefits software company serving more than 14 million consumers and 300,000 employers. They are parents of three wonderful teenagers. Ben volunteers as a coach for his children’s athletic teams and is active in several community organizations.
