Job separation case
I recently lost my job as a Physician Assistant and needed advice regarding the terms of a release and severance benefit, as I felt they were unreasonable. Upon meeting Kane, I was impressed with how pleasant, down-to-earth and insightful he was. He patiently listened to my concerns without making me feel inferior. Equally as important, he showed genuine interest in my situation and a desire to fight for every penny that I deserved. I decided to retain him to correspond with my employer. Kane was diligent and thorough in his work while representing me. He communicated with me regularly via phone and e-mail and graciously addressed my questions/concerns -- even after we established that legal action would not be necessary. On a final note, kudos to the firm's administrator, Karen. She was attentive and personable and helped to make this difficult time of losing my job as painless and stress-free as possible.

A good lawyer
I engaged Kane after 4 years of going around and around with another lawyer. Kane was aggressive with my case, and wrapped it up in my favor within 5 months. He answered all my questions in a timely manner, and explained the various consequences when I had choices to make. He is easy to talk to, and makes himself available. If I need services again, I will go back to him immediately.

Kane Bennett Review
I began utilizing Kane's services about two years ago for guidance with a business contract. Some time and several projects later, the latest being this week, I can attest that Kane is extremely responsive, knowledgeable and his rates are very reasonable.

Attorney Neyah Kane Bennett
I had interviewed several attorneys before hiring Neyah Kane Bennett. His knowledge regarding employment law and non competes far surpassed any attorney I had previously spoken to. Attorney Bennett made sure I understood every detail in the process, which made me feel extremely comfortable. I would recommend Attorney Bennett to anyone who needs legal services.
