The son of dedicated missionaries in Nicaragua and Guatemala during the 1970s and 1980s, Judge Ben Hand understands sacrifice and the value of family. Pastor Benny Hand, Sr, his father, is the Head Pastor at Believer's Church in Auburn and also believes strongly in Christian faith and family values. Instilling a love of Christ and family into his children, he has dedicated his life to preaching and teaching the Word of God and has a special love for children and families.
Judge Hand was born in this area in 1964, his grandfather was a pastor at both Airview Baptist and Second Avenue Baptist in Opelika in the 1960's and his father was a barber at the Clinkscales Barber shop in the old Pitts Hotel in Auburn. Judge Hand met Honorable Jack Peacock in Texas during his teens and this meeting inspired him to become an attorney.
This was due to Mr. Peacock's love for the law and the Lord, and Judge Hand describes him, "As an honorable Christian attorney, a rarity during our era of moral decline.
Through influences like his father and Mr. Peacock, Judge Hand began to realize that one person's decisions influence so many other lives, and this became one of his personal goals in life-to inspire many through the law.
Visitors and clients at Hand Law Firm can see pictures of Judge Hand's family, as well as his many awards and certificates, throughout the offices at the firm.
Judge Hand has been proud to serve as one of Opelika's two Municipal Judges for more than two years, and was recently reappointed to an additional two-year term for the Opelika area. He states: "Serving Opelika was one of my personal goals, and I am grateful for the opportunity to do it. He served as a city prosecutor prior to being selected to serve as judge; both offices he considers himself "blessed to serve" and is grateful to the Mayor and Council members for allowing him to serve the city.
Recently, Judge Hand was questioned regarding whether his sentences tended to be tough or more lenient on average, which is a common question for Judges in any capacity. His response was, "They are both.
Judge Hand strives to instill respect in these individuals, and explains his intentions thusly: "…When I come into the courthouse, if the bailiff tells me to empty my pockets, he is the authority and I empty my pockets.
