Jesse Julian Bennett Jr.

About Me

I grew up in Winter Haven, Florida and have practiced law in Polk County since 1982. From 1982 until 1994, I practiced with my father J. Julian Bennett, doing criminal Defense, family law and general civil trial work.


 Since becoming board-certified in 1994, I have limited my practice to marital and family law. During my three decades of practice, I have represented over 2,000 family law cases for individuals from virtually every walk of life – from school teachers to CEOs

  • Robert M Chambers

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Mr. Bennett for approximately twenty-five years He and I have been opposing counsel on a number of family law matters and in a few instances co-counsel. He is exceptionally well thought of by the local judiciary as well as other lawyers. I consider him an exceptional family law attorney and I have no reservation in referring anyone in the Central Florida area who needs divorce or family law services to Mr. Bennett. His knowledge and advocacy for his clients is apparent, and should be a comfort to anyone facing a divorce, support or custody case. He is very resourceful. He is also Board Certified by the Florida Bar in the area of family law. Simply stated he is one the best family law attorneys in the State of Florida.
