Stay away from this lawyer. He and his secretary Valerie are only concerned about one thing. The money they receive. They are not concerned with the outcome of your case. Leaves things for the last minute and expects you to preform or better yet pay for his laziness or errors. Please stay away from this lawyer. He lied to me about the settlement and has disappeared on me when the judgement was filed signed by him. Trouble started due to Leon giving the opposing counsel all the power because he was too lazy to do the work and make sure his client and her kids had security from an abusive ex.
Two years later served by my ex to appear and Leon was no where to assist. No one understood the judgment and opposing counsel had a field day with me in court because he was the only one that new how to manipulate the facts in front of a new judge. Where was Leon, the man who singed and took complete control of the judgement. He ignored my every attempt for an understanding of what was going on. Stay away from this lawyer. He does not care about justice or the laws that would protect you. He is very, very lazy. STAY AWAY FROM HIM.
It says below that he is trustee, treasurer, president of the bar association. What does that mean?
All I can say is that Mr. Bennett and his staff are the best! He got me a very favorable property settlement (not easy since my ex was hiding assets) and, most importantly, primary custody of my kids. He and his staff were always available to answer my questions.
I wish I had found Mr. Bennett earlier - unfortunately, I hired another attorney first who produced zero results and charged me a fortune! It became immediately apparent during my first meeting with Mr. Bennett that his knowledge of Family Law was extensive, and that he had successful handled numerous complex cases such as mine.
I have recommended Mr. Bennett to family and friends and will continue to do so!
