Highly Recommend
Tina and Tim have both spent a lot of time on my case. They have been extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and supportive. Not everyone can handle their honesty and approach, but they get stuff done. And they do it with expertise and passion for getting the job done. Excellent petition writing, filing, court appearance (virtual and in-person), thorough, and just a hardcore practice that works as a team and accomplishes a lot. Highly recommend for support orders, divorce, and custody cases.

Tina is an exceptional attorney, well focused on the issues and interests of her clients. She sets clear expectations and is a results driven counselor with in-depth knowledge of family court proceedings. If you need a trusted and dedicated divorce attorney that cares about you and your family, look no further. Tina provided the best representation possible by providing responsive, personal and informed representation during my divorce. She has the knowledge and superior court savvy to aggressively pursue your case and helped me understand complex issues such as the division of assets and debt, whether an asset or a debt is marital or non-marital, retirement accounts and support. My experience was outstanding. Tina has been practicing divorce and family law for more than 20 and I am highly recommending her to anyone seeking legal assistance.

Five Star Attorney - the real deal Father's Rights Attorney
Never met an attorney that is honest and hardworking. Very ethical and high standards. Straightforward and to the point against the corrupt family court system. Stands up for father’s rights and shared parenting. And, very caring. She is more than just an attorney she cares about your child and your family. Tina’s mom is also very funny. Works late hours, 7 days a week. Not a day or time that I couldn’t reach her. Not only a family attorney she treats clients as if they are family. Easy to connect with not like a ruthless snake lawyer that I have dealt with before. She is modern and update with technology.

Best Father’s lawyer!
I’ve used Tina in two custody situations and as my divorce lawyer over the span of ten years and in ever situation I couldn’t of gotten a better outcome. Currently I have full custody of all three of my children and my alimony was close to nothing. Everyone circumstances are different, but she will fight hard for you in any situation you throw at her. Hopefully I will never need her again, but if I do she’s always my first choice!

She is the best!!!!!
With everything I have been put through with my son's mother, Tina has been a true blessing to me. She is honest, caring and has the utmost integrety I have ever seen in a lawyer and I have had a few. She displays the most positive out look on your situation. She does the best any attorney could ever do, her remain goal is Eqaulity. She knows and expreses the importance of children having both parents in their lives. She helps Dad's to be able to be with their kids. She is a fighter for Equality. Her and her husband are the most giving people they are good people and good friends. I trust her with every situation that arises with my son's mom. If you need a good lawyer Tina Bennet is your Best choice.

The Best for Dads
Tina Bennett is a father's rights Advocate! If you have Tina in your corner, you are going to overcome the system. I am a client, and Tina has fought for me to have better visitation with my child. When they went low, Tina took the high road! Tina is fair, she is professional, she can quote family law from rote! That is pretty impressive. Got a problem with the baby mama? Not visiting your child? Are your parental rights being questioned? Call Tina!

Very caring lawyer
She was patient and understanding to my needs. Very hard working and called me back within the day I called. She really went out of her way to help me through the process.

She won me sole legal and physical custody of my daughter when everyone else told me I had no chance
She won me sole legal and physical custody of my daughter when everyone else told me I had no chance. I was being alienated and it was killing me. Tina had a consult with me. $100 for 30 minutes is what is advertised. I got almost an hour as she listened to my troubles. She was flexible on where we could meet for this consult as well since her office would have been a long drive for me. I really appreciated that. Once she agreed that she could represent me, the retainer at that time was $2500 (it may have changed some since then) cash, check, or credit. Court was a long and painful battle, but Tina was there for me in and out of the courtroom. Her performance in the courtroom was wonderful. Be sure to provide her with all the details, typed up in a concise format, as she will run down the list with her questioning. Information both for yourself and against the mother. Her manner of questioning gets results and extracts truths. She was able to expose the purposeful alienation of me by my daughters mother to the judge because of this. All in all a top notch experience with an attorney who knows the ropes.

Tina C. Bennet-Father's Advocate
Tina is an excellent advocate for father's seeking a fair outcome in their child support issues. My experience with her was outstanding! She possesses valuable knowledge in assisting clients and strategically executes in the courtroom with professionalism and more important obtaining the best outcome for her client. I have recently obtained Tina for a child support case and she demonstrated the experience, knowledge and skills that are superior to any other attorney I have used in the past. I highly recommend that you contact Tina Bennet. She is very competent in her area of expertise!

The only one needed
I lost hope on being a father and having a chance of getting custody of my kids until I hired Tina. She is absolutely the best custody attorney I've ever had and she turned things right around for me I can't say enough to how happy I am for what she has done for me. If your a father and want to even our odds on having your kids HIRE TINA she fights for her client with class

Best around, fights harder than the “typical”
After working with 3 different attorneys over the last 4 years through my divorce, custody and shared parenting time, Tina Bennet has provided the best and strongest offense and defense for my case. I WISH I HAD HER FROM THE START. She works above and beyond the typical, fighting against the unfair and unequal system, which fathers tend to have to settle for, in an antiquated family court system which still favors the mother, and not treated as equal. Others just handled my case as “this is what always happens, so don’t bother trying” even though they talked big in the office. My only complaint of any attorney is not getting back to me when I’m worried about something, usually since nothing can be done yet and just emotions, so why waste money. But… anytime I had something concrete and pressing, she was very responsive, and remembers my case from a year or more ago. I highly recommend her and her office above the others I’ve had and the 6+ attorneys I have interviewed over the years.

simply amazing
I've had several bad experiences with lawyers in the past. Tina surpassed every one of them by leaps and bounds. She handles her job with a passion I've never seen before. Great things are in her future.
Posted by Richard | March 1, 2014
I was so nervous that I stopped by her office on an almost daily basis. Able to make me understand that it was a process so long as I stuck to the game plan and everything would get better. She told me upfront that this wouldn't be easy, it would be very emotional, but at the end of the day I would get through it although things would be much different in the end.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Appeared to not have the time or interest in the matter as I was seeking. Felt that she viewed custody matters as a whole instead of on an Individual basis . Was looking for a more compassionate person who took the time to answer phone calls personally and to guide through this unexpected time in my life. She appeared very knowledgeable but alittle too concerned with every minute of her time to be paid for. Appears to have an aversion in returning texts and calls.

Could be better
In the beginning I thought she was great and gungho. After payment things slowed down, emails not answered, questions not explained and just not what I had expected. I will continue to use her throughout the divorce but I know in the end it will not be what I expected. Should have shopped around more.

Horroble person
Horrible person. Posting on Facebook that she will dispose of anyone's cat that gets in her yard. Her words.

Waste of time and money
I am using her right now and she is no help, will not call me, will not email me, and just will not help me at all. It just sucks because she took my money and has done nothing and I am stuck because that was all the money I had.
