I live in Australia, my children live in USA with their Mom. After an attempted negotiation with my ex to bring my children to Australia for vacation failed I needed to have some matters of the custody agreement clarified and modified. Bentley Law discussed and advised me of my entitlements, took my matter to court and supported me throughout. The case was so well presented that at the hearing the judge queried my ex 'so why shouldn't the children be permitted to travel to Australia?', to which he found her answer to be inadequate - IE, I had a reasonable request and we were better prepared. My children got to visit Australia, catch up with their cousins, uncles, aunties and grandfather, none of which would have been possible without Bentley's assistance. We are now in the process of having the custody agreement modified so that my children can travel frequently.
The time zones did throw in some challenges and I am very pleased with their service.

I was very fortunate to have Victoria represent me in my divorce. At the time I found myself in a position to seek an attorney I was personally very hurt and overwhelmed by my situation. I began in the beginning of the alphabet of the yellow pages under attorneys and fortunatley found Victoria after not too many calls.... She was knowledgeable, helpful, efficient as well as cared about my personal well being. She exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend her.

I was very happy that I chose Victoria to handle my divorce. She handled everything for me and made sure that I was treated fairly and received what I deserved. She worked expeditely to have my divorce completed in a timely fashion. I hope to never need a divorce attorney again, but would feel confident that Victoria and her firm could handle it well.

I have dealt with Victoria for many years and find her to be a most caring and sensitive professional. She has great communication skills and is above reproach when it comes to honesty and trustworthiness. I can recommend her very highly.

Victoria Bentley is not only a profession lawyer, she is a caring individual. Nothing is easy in a divorce and she understands this. I worked not just with her, but with her associates as well. She would not hesitate to call in one of her associates if they had more expertise in a particular area. I see this as an example of her not letting her pride get in the way of helping a client. No one can know everything, and she was the first to admit it. When you hire Victoria, you hire a team of professionals. I am very grateful

Victoria is by far one of the most caring professionals I've had the pleasure of meeting, especially during a difficult time of a divorce. Her genuine concern for my well being during this process was very comforting. She is sharp and did everything in her power to achieve the best results for me. Her dedication to her profession is obvious from the very start.

My family got into a dispute over a small estate left by a elderly relative.We thought the matter was simple,but someone claiming to be an heir showed up and wanted a share of the property. Since our aunt had lived near Reading we decided to get a good local attorney,we didn't understand all the legal threats we were getting . Well talked to Bentley,she went to work immediately,the threats stopped, there was no property,and Bentley helped us file the forms, and close out.Also her fees were modest,we were all afraid of a big expensive legal bill.

Victoria is very Knowledgable in family law. She has helped a friend with custody problems and took the time to sit and talk with me personally to discuss divorce options during a difficult time in my life. Her caring and empathy help to make even the most emotional situations managable.
