About Me

About Divorce Related Issues:  The first thing to remember is that you will be able to work through whatever issues you are facing.  We can help you do that.  Please visit out website at www.brazilbenske.com for information about divorce and other family law related issues.  That may be a start in helping you to understand the issues from a legal perspective. Please also give us a call and we can provide further assistance. 


At Brazil & Benske we all devote our time and energy to helping clients through the emotional and challenging divorce process and other family related processes such as paternity cases, post divorce cases etc. We work hard at making sure clients gain insight into the legal aspects of their situation and that we gain an insight into our clients situation so we can work together to determine the best approach toward resolving issues as efficiently and effectively as possible. We can really help make a positive difference in helping people move forward.

  • Jonathan S. Safran

    I enthusiastically endorse Paulette. She is an outstanding lawyer and is well respected in the field of family law. She aggressively represents and assists her clients with the complex issues involved in child support, child custody and visitation, and property division. Over the years, I have referred a number of clients to her for representation, and they have always appreciated her ability to communicate and explain the procedures involved in the case, and they have always been happy with the assistance and work she and her law firm have provided.
