    Review of Kevin Bennett

    I just want to say that Mr. Bennett helped me late last year on a case that was from 1995 and made the process easy to deal with. He was very informative and kept me up to date on my case and was very honest which I find hard for some people to do these days. This whole ordeal was very stressful but he helped me as much as he could to ease the situation. His assistants were very nice and professional as well! Mr. Bennett was a great choice to represent me and I highly recommend him to anyone needing legal representation! Thanks again Mr. Bennett!

    Above average legal representation

    Mr. Bennett was my legal representation last year and I was satisfied with the services he provided. His responses to my questions were timely and his appearances when requested by the court were punctual. I would recommend his services.

    No helpful

    If you want Elmore Fudd to represent you, then hire this joker. I did all the work and he was basically just a figure with a law degree to go in front of the court. I had a temp protective order case and instead of defending me, his strategy was to just go along with my ex-wife and "don't Rock the boat". Never once did challenge the accusations that my ex noted as reasons for the temp order. Because of his lack of effort or contimency, it was put in as a permanent, at which time he dropped me and the case. He also threatened not to assist when I pushed for action. $2000 wasted.
    Don't hire this guy to represent you In a protective order.

    Kevin Matthew Bennett’s response: “I am very sorry that you feel this way. Protective order cases are some of the most emotionally charged cases at the court house. Going into such a case, I have all of my clients draft a summary of statements and responses to the allegations in a protective order so that I can be familiar with the history of the relationship, the facts of the case, the allegations against my clients and my client’s goals. Nobody is more familiar with their own family and the allegations against them than my own client. My clients’ initial and continued hard work is essential to the defense of the case and it does take quite a bit of time, work and patience on my clients’ behalf, as well as my own. I understand that most of my clients want their day in court as soon as possible, but unfortunately, the legal process takes time. I always advise my clients that while the protective order is pending, to keep a low profile, to not communicate with the other party and not violate the temporary protective order in any way, regardless of how strong or weak the allegations are against them. Any new allegations, even if false, can put the case into a tailspin and possibly lead to criminal charges against them. I've represented four (4) different clients in protective order hearings over the past two years. The first one was dismissed after several months. The second one went to hearing where the protective order was denied after a full-day hearing. The third case was dismissed after several months. The fourth and last case I handled, which I believe was for this reviewer, my client agreed to a very short six month protective order, not a permanent protective order. This decision was solely theirs to make, required their agreement in open court and was based on wanting to get the process behind them, to re-gain visitation rights to their child, and to not risk having a permanent/lifetime protective order entered at hearing, which was a very real possibility in this case. A six month protective order is almost unheard of, as two year protective orders are easily and routinely granted by Judges. I put forth an incredible amount of time, effort and emotion into this case, which helped the client re-gain parental and visitation rights to their child and substantially limit the duration of the protective order. Prior to hiring my office, a Judge had taken away my client’s parental rights and visitation altogether. If the client had directed me in any different way, I would have been happy (and obligated) to proceed in that manner. This is what I do for a living and I love doing it, at least most of the time. After a protective order case or any case is concluded, an attorney’s representation is also concluded. Furthermore, if a former client needs additional assistance in a new matter, or in a different area of law than I practice and I am unable to assist them, I will usually refer them to at least three (3) different attorneys that may be able to help them plus the Austin Lawyer Referral Service, which is what I did in this case. I’m deeply sorry that you are unhappy with my office. I am always willing to meet or have coffee with former clients and would be happy to meet with you to discuss your concerns, or just life in general. Either way, I wish you the best. Thank you.”

    great lawyer

    Kevin Bennett is a great lawyer. I told him my case, gave him my paper work. Kevin told me exactly how he could help me and kept his word. Anytime there was new information on my case, Kevin called me immediately. I would recommend him to anyone.

    I would definitely recommend this law firm to represent you for your case!

    Kevin Bennett and team provided excellent advice and direction in pursuing my case. Kevin is an excellent attorney and communicator who constantly offered assurance that we were going to win my case. He represented me professionally and showed true empathy, I was very worried about my situation that I was going through in court, but Kevin assured me that he will fight and pursue my case and delivered successfully. I was very pleased with his work/presentation and found him not only knowledgeable and professional, but also very personable and enjoyable to work with.

    Case Dismissed

    Kevin got my case dismissed in 2 months. He was very helpful, listened carefully, and told me up front what to expect. He kept me informed and immediately returned emails and phone calls. Was very pleased my case was dismissed. I would highly recommend speaking with Kevin if you need a defense attorney.

    Great domestic violence defense

    I llive in another state, but I was looking for a defense attorney for my daughter. I found great reviews for Mr. Bennett on Gooogle and thought he sounded very well equipped to handle the case. He was pleasant to speak with, and kept me approporiately informed throughout. Best of all, he got the case dismissed. Thank you, Kevin!

    Worth every penny

    Kevin was very responsive and got us in quickly. He worked with the court so that we didn't have to go and quickly got one of the charges dropped. He kept us informed and always responded to emails in a timely manner. His expertise and knowledge was worth every penny and we would definetly use his services again.
