Vonnetta Leatrice Benjamin



Vonnetta L. Benjamin is a partner in the Atlanta office of Lewis Brisbois and a member of the Products Liability, General Liability, and Toxic Tort & Environmental Litigation Practices. Vonnetta is an experienced and detail-oriented litigator who focuses her practice on products liability litigation, complex business litigation, and healthcare and medical malpractice litigation.

Paying great attention to detail permits Vonnetta to move seamlessly from managing a case where the key issues surround a particular product to a case where she must hone in on the side effects of a particular drug. Vonnetta ensures that she understands how her clients and their representatives function best so that she can effectively advise them on matters from pre-suit phases to the efficient resolutions of any formal lawsuits.

Vonnetta also enjoys serving as a Community Educator with the Alzheimer's Association Georgia Chapter in an effort to spread awareness about Alzheimer's and other dementias as well as the ongoing research to prevent and effectively treat Alzheimer's and the resources available to those affected by Alzheimer's. She also recently received Modern Luxury Medicine+Doctor's 2019 Philanthropic Luminary Award for the work she has done with Daughters Against Alzheimer's, which raises funds to support research projects conducted by Emory University’s Goizueta Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center.
