I believe that it is imperative for an attorney to educate each client regarding the law; possible outcomes of a legal matter; potential cost of the legal matter; and the pros and cons of litigation (including going to trial or settling the matter). Depending upon the client's desires and issues at hand, some legal matters require sheer aggressiveness, while others require more finesse and creativity.
Many attorneys forget that we are in a service oriented profession, where clients are our customers. At Bennett & Belfort, P.C., we strive to maintain long-term relationships with our clients, by providing the highest quality legal representation, irrespective of the size of the client or the legal matter at hand.
Bennett and Belfort, P.C. handles all types of employment law/litigation, business litigation, and real estate litigation matters throughout Massachusetts. Please visit our website at www.bennettandbelfort.com.

Recently, I worked together with Todd on an employment contract dispute, which involved unpaid wages and a breach of contract claim by our mutual client. I found Todd to be very knowledgeable and thorough in his analysis of legal issues. Additionally, by thinking several steps ahead and anticipating opposing counsel’s next moves, Todd assisted in developing an aggressive, acute legal strategy, which put our client in a favorable position and enabled us to successfully resolve the legal dispute in our client’s favor without resorting to lengthy, expensive litigation.

I had a very complicated business litigation matter against Attorney Bennett several years ago. I found him to be an excellent lawyer with good instincts, careful attention to detail and a strong mind. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a business or employment lawyer.
