I hired this attorney to handle a family custody matter. She showed up at one hearing and then demanded another $5000 to grace us with her presence. These attorneys in Wisconsin are criminals due to the total lack of any meaningful oversight. What a joke this attorney is-
Stephanie is a knowledgeable attorney in her areas of expertise. One area that is lacking is communication. Her assistant is no where near professional. I never get a response when a phone call or email is sent. I am always chasing and having to call and setup a apt when I feel it should be the other way around. Not sure if this is how all lawyers are, but I'm extremely frustrated! Its difficult enough being stressed with the circumstances of a case involving my child, but to be pushed to the side and not given reassurance or the acknowledgement is ridiculous. There are plenty of good attorneys out there and I would not recommend Stephanie.
After hiring Stephanie Benske there was no attempt to communicate with me to discuss my case. All of her research on the matter was apparently done through previous court documents, which resulted in a very unfavorable ruleing by the court. Many details were not addressed on my behalf because of the lack of attention that was given to my case.
I would not recommend this attorney. Phone calls are never returned in a timely matter OR sometimes not returned AT ALL. I felt as if I were "chasing" my attorney and still have not gotten anything done further with my case. This experience is not based on a decision made by the court at all since I am still trying to have my matter resolved.
Stephanie is VERY knowledgeable in her field. She understands the court system and knows what to do in every situation. She knows her way around a court house. She makes you feel important and knows that the situation you may be going through can be difficult.
