Benjamin Owens-Filice, Doctor of Jurisprudence, Master of Laws, and a senior staff attorney at the Office of the U.S. Army Inspector General, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the law and the military.

With expertise in trial and appellate litigation and crisis management, Mr. Owens-Filice serves as a uniformed officer; advises the inspector general and senior investigators at the Office of the Inspector General of the United States Army on a host of issues dealing with ethics, compliance, policy, and internal investigations concerning senior leaders in the army ranked as generals or higher; and provides facts to the media and individuals as required by the Freedom of Information Act. Along with his accomplished career combining the law and the military, he is a proud father and loving husband whose nearly three decades of dedicated service in the U.S. Army have been recognized with numerous awards and decorations, including the Purple Heart and Bronze Star. Mr. Owens-Filice, a lieutenant colonel, believes that character and discipline helped him to succeed in life by always being willing to do what is right, especially when no one is watching. He also is the author of “Where’s the Money Lebowski: Charging Credit and Debit Card Larcenies under Article 121, UCMJ,” published in The Army Lawyer.

Mr. Owens-Filice is a member of the Supreme Court of the United States Bar, the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces Bar, and the State Bar of California. As an attorney, he has represented victims’ interests, most often achieving favorable results for individuals and their families. Citing two career highlights from his long and impressive track record in court, Mr. Owens-Filice recalled first when he wrote the published opinion of the Army Court of Criminal Appeals of the United States v. Hasan K. Akbar case. A memorable military moment for him was in Iraq, where he was injured in a rocket attack. Five days later, with his leg still heavily bandaged, he carried on with his duties as an attorney fighting in court.

Looking toward the future, Mr. Owens-Filice plans to spend more time with his family after he retires in September 2023 from his current role at the Office of the U.S. Army Inspector General. He is in the process of seeking a headhunter who can help him find employment in the civilian sector at a law firm in Denver, Colorado, in hopes of continuing his career in litigation and making a difference in the lives of his future clients.
