I believe that it is imperative for an attorney to educate each client regarding the law; possible outcomes of a legal matter; potential cost of the legal matter; and the pros and cons of litigation (including going to trial or settling the matter).  Depending upon the client's desires and issues at hand, some legal matters require sheer aggressiveness, while others require more finesse and creativity.

Many attorneys forget that we are in a service oriented profession, where clients are our customers.  At Bennett & Belfort, P.C., we strive to maintain long-term relationships with our clients, by providing the highest quality legal representation, irrespective of the size of the client or the legal matter at hand.

Recently, I had an opportunity to refer Todd a civil litigation matter involving a dispute against an insurance company. I was very impressed with Todd's preparation, including the way he handled cross examination of experienced witnesses, such as insurance company personnel and an expert witness for the insurance company. Through Todd's efforts, the client was able to obtain a much more favorable result than she otherwise would have been able to. I would highly recommend Todd for any civil litigation matter, including any issue relating to business, employment, real estate or insurance.

Excellent Advisor
I have consulted with Todd many times. I run a small business and have needed advice and some representation and work done a few times. Specifically, I have consulted with Todd regarding employment law issues and some business/partnership disputes. Excellent results! He is very professional and very knowledgeable. Thank you, Todd. Highly recommend him!

Excellent Attorney
I have had the pleasure of partnering with Attorney Todd Bennett on numerous occasions over the course of the past decade. On those occasions in which a particularly large and complicated case requires that I bring in additional 'fire power', I automatically think of Todd and his law firm. Todd is a very skilled negotiator, but he also has the ability to aggressively and expertly take cases through the litigation process to trial.

Extremely capable and bright attorney
Todd Bennett is one of the most talented, ethical and efficient attorneys I have ever had the pleasure of working with. His expertise in commercial litigation matters is only rivaled by extremely professional and collegial demeanor, and it is obvious in interacting with him that his clients’ best interests are always his top priority. I regularly refer business to Todd, and would encourage anyone else who needs to refer a client to a skilled litigator to do the same.

Bad experience as nightmare
Todd was introduced to me because I wanted fill a counter claim, I was very upset that Todd never read my case carefully , he even did not understand the relationship between the concern parties after several meetings with me, and repeatedly asked the questions which I have explained many times. He has a lady assistant in his office, I do not understand why he arranged his friend from another law firm as his second assistant for my case, he called his friend attending our every meeting, then, I will received two bills for each meeting from two firms, that means I need to pay three attorneys for each meeting (himself ,his assistant in his office, his assistant from another firm), even so, he still could not understand my story and my request, I never mean he is not smart, I am sure he did not spend reasonable time to study my case. And his friend assistant, even could not answer my only question, which is very simple and was answered by my later attorney instantly. Finally, after I paid him more than $20,000, I left him and went to another law firm, which helped me win my case.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Recently, I worked together with Todd on an employment contract dispute, which involved unpaid wages and a breach of contract claim by our mutual client. I found Todd to be very knowledgeable and thorough in his analysis of legal issues. Additionally, by thinking several steps ahead and anticipating opposing counsel’s next moves, Todd assisted in developing an aggressive, acute legal strategy, which put our client in a favorable position and enabled us to successfully resolve the legal dispute in our client’s favor without resorting to lengthy, expensive litigation."
